It’s time to start high-fiving each other at Spotlight

 

I’m done with it. I’m done with playing the game. I’m done.

I’m not even sure who invented the game, but knowing what I do about actors, I’m going to say we did it to ourselves. We love to punish ourselves. Well, if we made it, we can break it. And I’m willing to lead the
