Wordplay (5 p.m. Sunday): What's an 11-letter word for a film about crossword puzzles? It features ____ Shortz, the New York Times crossword puzzle editor, as well as celebrity crossword fanatics such as He Hosts Daily Nightly, A Civil Filmmaker Who Got Jazzy, and President With a P-Funk Surname. If you think that's all gibberish, maybe Wordplay isn't for you.

I just wrote the guy:
I don't know what's an 11-letter word for a film about crossword puzzles, but "Wordplay" is an 8-letter word for a film about crossword puzzles.
Just so you know, EVERYONE uses "What's a __-letter word for __?" for leads and headlines in articles about crosswords.
Update: I got a reply, and obviously he's fixed things. He concluded, "That said, it sounds like you'll like this movie." I had to tell him that I was, um, *in* the movie.
