Trivia Question for DOUBT Script Giveaway

It’s time for another giveaway! I will email a Doubt script to the first five people on my subscribers list who can correctly answer the question below. John Patrick Shanley has already won a Pulitzer for the play and was just Oscar nominated for his screen adaptation.

Remember, you have to be a subscriber to win. Feel free to take a stab at it but if you’re not on the list, you won’t be receiving a script. You’ll just be giving the answer to someone who is! Click here to subscribe.

Don’t worry about spamming—I’d rather ram a rusty nail in my ear than blitz you with junk. Once you’re on the list, you’ll be eligible for future prizes and I’ve got other Oscar-nominated scripts to give away!

Here’s the question: John Patrick Shanley said no to which huge celeb when he/she asked for a role in the movie version of Doubt?

    Oprah Winfrey! She said “Shanley turned me down and said no and gave me all the reasons why it would be no, and I think it was actually the best decision.”
    And Viola Davis was chosen over her.
