How ’bout this little tinsel-town tidbit in from The Sporting News concerning the MASN studio analyst and ’83 World Series MVP:
“Columbia Pictures and Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison Productions have acquired an untitled script for a comedy based on an incident in the life of former major-leaguer Rick Dempsey, whose Little League coach turned out to be a bank robber, Daily Variety reported. The script, written with input from Dempsey, is ‘Catch Me if you Can’ meets ‘Bad News Bears’ with a touch of ‘Bad Santa’, according to one of its writers.”
That’s cool, I like those movies.
Question is, I wonder when Dempsey first grew his mustache? It’d be great to have a 12-year old actor playing a young Dempsey… wearing a nice, thick upper-lip toupee.
