Prolific talents should inspire three emotions: admiration, envy and suspicion. How else can the procrastinators among us regard the likes of documentarian Alex Gibney and crime writer Harlan Coben, who churn out material at a rate normally only associated with Third World sweatshops.

I have long suspected that, much like Betty Crocker, Dr. Pepper and Milli Vanilli (kids, ask an old person), both Gibney and Coben are actually brand names for a collective of gifted filmmakers and writers, respectively, who prefer to work under the cover of anonymity and hire an actor to play their “creation” whenever a public-facing presence is required. (I agree, it’s disconcerting that this won’t be the craziest conspiracy theory you’ll read this week.)
