My good buddy Mike Metz (worked in the Californication writer's room, among others) called to gauge my interest in a baseball short that he had written. He said their first choice and huge SF Giants fan Colin Hanks had passed due to lack of time, or maybe interest, or probably both. So the role fell to me. Knowing nothing about baseball and wanting to prove Hanksy-poo dead wrong, I gladly accepted.
Since then, it has accumulated a shitload of views and was recently picked up by NBC/Comcast SportsNet as their first foray in original content.
SEE COLIN?! SEE??!!..... YOU HAVE FUCKED UP NOW.
