Comedian Patton Oswalt stars in the new film BIG FAN, written and
directed by Robert Siegel , the man who wrote the screenplay for
indie hit, THE WRESTLER.
There's funny stuff in this film , but like THE WRESTLER, BIG FAN
is a realistic look at sports. This time the focus is on an
obsessive football fan named Paul (Oswalt) , who's loner lifestyle
is defined by his voice on the phone fandom persona as a regular
caller to sports talk radio, He has an awkard hero worship moment
with his favorite player that turns violently ugly, and upsets his
cocoon like world.
Oswalt discuss the film's character and the obvious similarities of
this sort of fan worship compared to pop culture fans.
We also talkabout his upcoming one shot Firefly story for Dark
Horse Comics, and the realese of his new DVD MY WEAKNESS IS
