Dear Mr. Smits,
My name is Matt Winick and I’m a fan of your acting in different tv shows. My favorite tv shows that you played in were NYPD Blue, West Wing, and OutLaw. In NYPD Blue, I really liked your character Detective Bobby Simone because I liked on how Detective Simone had an interesting friendship with Detective Andy Sipowicz, how he use different traits to solving cases like examining the evidence or re-evaluating witness statements to understand how the crime was committed, and how he worked to help Detective Andy work on overcoming his struggles with losing his partner before him or dealing with a case that is personal. Another show that I liked was The West Wing because I enjoyed learning how the U.S. President with the cabinet to work on dealing with a range from domestic issues through foreign policy. Also in The West Wing, I enjoyed seeing how President Josiah Bartlet interacted with his staff, his presidential cabinet, and different political parties. In season 6-7, I enjoyed your acting as Congressman Matt Santos because I liked on how you made Congressman Santos a great influential character by making him have a goal to help Americans when Congress is in gridlock, pushing for jobs to help train workers including youth to develop job skills, push to protect the environment by supporting renewable energy, and working hard to bring political parties together to pass Patients Bill of Rights. Also what I liked about Matt Santos was seeing on how he ran a presidential campaign to win the Whitehouse and how he overcomes his struggle on dealing with the lost of his running mate Leo McGarry when he passed away. I enjoyed the plot of Outlaw about a Supreme Court Justice Cyrus Garza where he resigns from the U.S. Supreme Court to return to practice law to help people who suffer from the justice system. Mr. Smits, I thought you did an excellent job portraying Cyrus Garza because I liked on how you made him have a powerful voice when presenting the questions including facts in the courtroom, have the passion to help people with different situations, and work with his team on different cases.
Mr. Smits, I have Autism with a learning disability. Having Autism is difficult for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased. Your role as different characters on having traits like working hard to help people, the need for friendships, and your acting on making your communication be strong really inspires me to work hard on Autism, practice speech, learn different vocabulary, and many others. Your role on The West Wing as Congressman Matt Santos and the show really inspires me to be interested in learning about how U.S. President work hard to deal with different issues, study current events along with history, and take classes related to history and government. In history and government, I like to learn the need to advance on Civil Rights to help protect people who are different from being discriminated, protect the environment from pollution, improve healthcare to help people get the care they need, and many others. My future goal is to someday teach people about the need to improve society or work in public policy to help shape common sense ideas to help society become a better place.
Mr. Smits, I strongly believe that you really made a great difference to make NYPD Blue, The West Wing, Outlaw, and many other tv shows great to watch and make your character in the shows great to learn with have great traits. I’m proud to call you one of my favorite actors. You have inspired me to work hard on my disability, practice speech with communication, to be interested in learning history with government, be a fan of your acting, and many others. Here is a picture of me as a gift to you to keep for inspiring me and as a birthday gift for July 9th. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, doing an excellent job in acting, and inspiring me. I wish you well for the future in acting and I hope someday there can be a spin-off of The West Wing where I can see your character U.S. President Matt Santos decide on different policies.
