Identity Theft

Who's the handsome young fellow grinning above? According to, it's ME!

The blog which was nice enough to interview me prefaced the q&a not only with that picture but with a brief biography that credited me with... well, read for yourself...

"Jonathan Bernstein holds an MFA in Playwriting and Creative Writing from Brooklyn College.
A graduate of Yale University's theater program, he also attended Princeton University. He is a member of the 2008-2009 Soho Rep Writer/Director Lab. Former writing teachers include Donald Margulies, Joyce Carol Oates, Suzan-Lori Parks, Wendy Wasserstein, Mac Wellman, and C.K. Williams.
His play "Gregory Must Sweat" was performed as part of the American Theatre Nexus at the Bric Studio in Brooklyn in 2003. In 2002 he received a Spielberg Fellowship in Theater Education to teach theater at summer camps. His play "Family" was performed at Princeton University as part of Toni Morrison's Atelier Program in 1998."

Yale! Princeton! Joyce Carol Oates! Spielberg Fellowship!! (Gregory Must Sweat?)

Whoever this other Jonathan Bernstein is, I tip my hat to him and his impressive list of achievements. I, on the other hand, wrote a movie starring Larry The Cable Guy.

I know this was an honest mistake and I think it's hilarious. Especially if this other Jonathan Bernstein is the type of guy who Googles himself and finds that he is now the proud author of a book about a teenage girl who shoots fire from her fingers. He'll never be able to show his grinning face at Princeton again!

This is where you ENGAGE your audience, btw:)
