Be that as it may, I am a big fan of Rob Siegel's work, first with The Onion and with the great screenplay for the film, "The Wrestler." It just might be that Siegel could be one of the best writers out there working today.
Moreover, anyone who knows me has also become hostage to my raves about the comic stylings of Patton Oswalt.
So imagine my surprise when I got an email from a PR firm suggesting I post an official trailer for the film, "Big Fan," the intertwining of the talents of both Siegel and Oswalt. In this project, Oswalt plays a sports obsessed devotee of sports-talk radio and Siegel is the writer/director of the movie which opened in Philadelphia last Friday.
The didn't send an embed, but there are other previews out there if you want to look. In the meantime, the reviews are coming back pretty solid and Siegel has made the rounds with some interesting interviews on public radio. It's all good stuff...
