White House speechwriters face “novel” path to Hollywood

This week, Jon Favreau, the White House speechwriter (not to be confused with Jon Favreau the "Iron Man" director), announced his departure from the Obama team in order to pursue a career in Hollywood.

It's a fairly novel path -- one that has only recently been pioneered by fellow Obama speechwriter Jon Lovett (not to be confused with "Saturday Night Live" alumnus Jon Lovitz), who co-created the White House sitcom "1600 Penn."
