Twenty things you (probably) didn’t know about Predators and The Three Musketeers screenwriter, Alex Litvak.

1.  My first job was… an usher at a movie theater. It was the best way to see movies for free and earn money for college.

3.  I collect… experiences and memories.

4.  My favorite word is… too many to choose from. But as a screenwriter, nothing beats the hard earned combo of exhilaration and exhaustion of typing “The End.”

12.  The best thing about being a professional writer is… making money doing what you love.

13.  I spend way too much time… worrying about stuff.

14.  The funniest person in my cell phone is… Jon Stewart. Not really. But I wish he was.

15.  It really bothers me when…  people flake.

16.  The worst thing about being a professional writer is… dealing with stupid notes.

17.  One mistake that most aspiring writers make is…  aspiring to write and never doing a thing about it.

18.  If I knew the apocalypse were coming in 24 hours, I’d…  try to spend with the people I care about.

19.  The three websites I visit most often are… Deadline Hollywood, Ain’t It Cool News and Wikipedia.
