"50/50" Comedy takes on Cancer

Day 6

The new movie 50/50 draws its emotional centre from the experience of scriptwriter Will Reiser, who was diagnosed with cancer at 24, and actor Seth Rogan, Will's real-life best friend. It's no coincidence that Rogan plays the best friend of cancer patient Adam (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) in the film. Brent speaks with Day 6 contributor and Salon.com writer Mary Elizabeth Williams about 50/50 and her own battle with cancer.
