* WriteWhoYouKnow: Where to begin? Everyone is directly based on his real family and even share their first named: O'Neill's father was a famous {{Melodrama}} actor named James; his addict mother's first name was Mary, although she went by Ella; and his older brother was James Jr (Jamie). There's even a fleeting reference to the dead infant son being named Eugene-- essentially O'Neill swaps names with Edmund the AuthorAvatar, the actual name for his dead sibling.
