The Spy Who Wrote Me
February 27, 2007 12:34 PM   Subscribe

In the movie Breach, notorious spy Robert Hanssen obsesses briefly over a specific brand/model of pen. Anyone know the brand/model Hanssen preferred so much?

According to the LA Times the pen detail is accurate.

There's an anecodtal answer over at the IMDb: a Pilot Dr. Grip Gel.

We just watched that movie in theater this weekend. On the big screen, it appears to the Dr. Grip Gel, a very writable pen.

Oh, and the character who was the "agent" is now a lawyer in DC, so you could ask him via mail if it might have been some other brand? (product placement deals and all...)

Bilabial, not sure what you mean, Hanssen is in Supermax for the rest of his life.

Not sure what the quotes are for there.

He means "agent" Eric O'Neill, the person most instrumental in the capture of Robert Hanssen.

To followup, Eric O'Neill is now an attorney at DLA Piper's DC office. His bio is humorously understated.
