John Pollono gets in depth on the many challenges of writing Stronger, an adaptation of the original book about Jeff Bauman (Jake Gyllenhaal), who lost both of his legs when a bomb went off during the 2013 Boston Marathon.

We learn about the collaborative process of "what stays and what goes" in the film, Pollono's favorite scene and how his experience as an actor came into play when writing the script.

Pollono is also a writer on television shows, such as This Is Us (NBC) and wrote & starred the Los Angeles World Premiere Play, Small Engine Repair
