  In a Black mood - The Boston Globe
Black leaves the building, and, out on the sidewalk, reads over his script, even smiling at a couple of fans who say "hi" as they pass.
Black sits behind the mock news desk in uniform -- the dark suit and loosened tie that he believes turns him into "the guy at the end of his rope." On camera, he barks out his lines, fed up, disgusted.
Though Black claims he has always resisted authority, he was, by all descriptions, an excellent student who, after being taken by his parents to the theater as a kid, decided he wanted to write plays.
