Patton Oswalt (left) in Big Fan

Patton Oswalt plays a crazed New York Giants fan in Big Fan. In the film Oswalt plays a guy who approaches his longtime hero, Giants linebacker Quantrell Bishop, at a strip club, and has his life flipped upside-down in the process.
The film, which co-stars Kevin Corrigan, Michael Rapaport and Marcia Jean Kurtz, and was written and directed by Robert D. Siegel, was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance.
Being a “big fan” of Oswalt’s, I can’t wait to see him “tackle” this role (sorry). Oswalt is already one of the best comedians alive. It’s nice to see him land a role in something more demanding of his talents than “King of Queens” (Ratatouille aside).
