'Gangster Squad' Shows LA's Finest

Cop-turned-screenwriter Will Beall faces the thin-blue-line edit

So what's ultimately more adrenalin-pumping: Making arrests or making movies? "I joke sometimes that I think something terrible happened to me when I was a cop, and this is all some kind of Jacob's Ladder coma dream or something," he says with a laugh. "But it's a different kind of excitement. I feel like these are the two most exciting industries in Los Angeles, and I'm lucky enough to have spent some time in both. It's hard for me to answer that question because I was a cop for a little more than 10 years, and the writing is still fairly new, but I'm having a lot of fun."
