The writer exactly flipped what I was trying to say about unfortunate kids. What is the difference, and what is the status of that?

He angled himself as incidental to social relevance, but really it's at the core of his brilliance, of being able to humorously approach subjects that are either taboo, like writing humorously about religion, or some of the glaring social injustices.

Completing his formal training at the Juilliard School of Performing Arts, at the age of 17, Kilmer was the youngest ever admitted to the Drama department.

THR: You're playing him, but do you see yourself as someone who is a modern Mark Twain? Kilmer: Certainly, in terms of outreach and power and respect, I think Jon Stewart is a worthy comparison because he's got a very specific agenda and he seems to be getting, even gaining, a respect from the conservative community because, like Twain, his stuff is so -- you can't really deny him.

Twain was kind of a ridiculous showman and self-promoter, like Stephen Colbert, so that's the kind of American satirist.

THR: Why do you think there is cynicism about celebrities who do those things? () Like I said, I don't fault anybody trying to do good.
