Jason English is Editor-in-Chief, Digital for mental_floss. He runs the @mental_floss Twitter account and created the board game Split Decision. His three daughters (all under six) are only sometimes embarrassed by his antics.
Before he wrote Jaws, Peter Benchley was a speechwriter for LBJ.
DID YOU KNOW? Marlon Brando hated memorizing lines so much that he posted cue cards everywhere to help him get through scenes.
He even asked for lines to be written on an actress's posterior. (That request was denied.)
