I didnt know anything about this looks like it might be pretty good.






Paul Aufiero (Oswalt), a 35-year-old parking-garage attendant from working-class Staten Island, is the self described "world's biggest New York Giants fan." One night Paul and his best friend, Sal (Kevin Corrigan), spot star Giants linebacker Quantrell Bishop at a gas station in Staten Island. They impulsively follow his SUV into Manhattan to a strip club, where they finally muster up the courage to talk to their hero. What starts out as a dream come true turns into a nightmare as a misunderstanding ignites a violent confrontation, and Paul is sent down a path that will test his devotion to the extreme.

Oswalt

Looks like it has a lot of potential.  Excited for it, for sure.

Patton AND Kevin Corrigan!

I'm definitely interested in this one.

Michael Rapaport as "Philadelphia Phil". I feel that a certain Mayor-elect of Newbridge may have something to say about this.

a few more stills here:

I, too, am interested in this. Thanks for the heads up, Jckinnick.

By the way, why no icon photo of Patton on the IMDB page?

Quantrell Bishop

Sounds about right for the Giants.

Plots like these make me nervous. Excited for Patton's sake though.

I hope Quantrell Bishop is based on Lawrence Taylor.  Actually, I hope Quantrell Bishop IS Lawrence Taylor.

I fear you may be right, Martin. But I am nervously optimistic.

By the way, this looks exactly like my first housemate in New York. Super FWD:

patton is a good guy and probably thought this through.  although, if it turns out to be a flopper, at least he got paid and thats all you can ask for.  

in the meantime, im reminiscent of patton and tom joking about bringing friends to see the movies youre in.

on a slightly different note, but remaining true to the patton reference, tom recently posted about a movie patton screen at UCB Jr. called, The Snake: http://www.thesnakemovie.com/

patton's hosting an encore screening on January 3rd if LA FOTs are interested.

It makes me wish he'd written and starred in Synecdoche, New York.
