    Interesting so far.

    John Turturro as Billy Martin, and that's the only name actor I know. But this isn't so bad so far.

    Anyone else watching?

    You don't know Oliver Platt?

    Oliver Platt? Never heard of him.

    What? Really? Huh.

    In every movie in the 1990s -- and every TV show in the 2000s. Pretty ubiquitous.

    Didn't see many movies in the '90s. Or TV in the 2000s. Must've missed him.

    Platt also had one of my favorite lines, playing Harry Rex Vonner in A Time to Kill.

    When asked if he'd help in the defense of the antagonist: "No way never, you preee-sumptious little shit." Always struck me as funny.

    Thought Platt was great as Sen. Bulworth's coked-up handler. Played the dad in Pieces of April. Have just seen clips from the ESPN movie, but that's Franco from Rescue Me playing Reggie.

    How'd they make Turturro look so short? Isn't he a tall guy?

    If they can make that freaky scientologist actor look like a 6-10 stud, they can do the reverse I'm sure.

    That was not bad. Turturro and Platt are pros, probably the best two actors ESPN's ever had in the same production.
