Jerry Dantana (Hamish Linklater) has been introduced on The Newsroom‘s season 2 premiere as a rapscallion, sorta. But he truly is? When he gave the “Genoa tip” to Mac, did he actually bring the whole ANC team buried in a pile of lawsuits?
Here’s an intel we’ve learned coming up on the Aaron Sorkin drama, read the spoilers below:
Although newcomer Jerry Dantana is convinced that his story is real, he’ll continue to butt heads with skeptical higher-ups at ACN. But that doesn’t necessarily make him a bad guy. “Jerry’s not a black hat,” executive producer Alan Poul says. “He just happens to be ambitious. He’s driven by incredibly human motives, but [he's] vulnerable to the kind of temptations and pressures that landing a big story like this would present to him in terms of furthering his own career. … It’s just too juicy to walk away from.” Fortunately for Jerry, in Sunday’s episode, the team receives a piece of intel that even the biggest skeptic can’t ignore.
