Orson Welles and Woody Allen are both writer/actors/performers appreciated by most for doing all three things well. Ben Affleck, surprisingly, isn't a bad director. Clint Eastwood manages to dabble in so many different genres it's almost freaky. But not every actor can direct. Proof? The film Men At Work, which was written and directed by Emilio Estevez (who also stars in the film). It's fairly shoddy film making, but it was on the USA Network once a day during my childhood so I've seen it a few times. The story of a crime-solving license plate scanner could make a good film some day, and maybe even spiegel could write it. Let's just hope he doesn't direct.
