"There were just some details from my grandmother, my grandfather's suicide, that I had played over and over in my head for many, many years," he said in a telephone interview from Chicago. "I always thought: `Well, that's the stuff of drama right there.'"

Letts' father, Dennis Letts, appeared in the cast as the Oklahoma patriarch whose disappearance sparks an acrimonious family reunion.
