I haven’t even looked yet to see who actually won the Tony Awards last night, but this came across my Google Alerts this morning:
9. Jimmi Simpson in The Farnsworth Invention.
Another much overlooked performance was Simpson’s Farnsworth in The Farnsworth Invention. He held his ground valiantly against Hank Azaria in the competition over who could first invent what we know as the television. He deftly handled all of Farnsworth’s up and downs from his disappointments to the loss of his son to his occasional drunken episodes. As the season unfolded, Simpson’s was one of the first to catch my eye.
So, uh, Aaron, you ever get that e-mail I sent you last month? The one entitled "Priority of Invention"? Or should I just post it here for you and all to see?
