Steve Bartman, Celebrity Cub Fan

Report from CNN this afternoon is that Steve Bartman, the Cubs fan who achieved notoriety and death threats after reaching for that pop foul in Game 6 of the National League Championship Series, may not be in misery for long over his mistake. Revolution Studios, in Hollywood, has already received a pitch for a movie tentatively titled "Fan Interference" that recounts the story of a fan who messes up an easy out for his favorite baseball team and then has to deal with the ramifications. The movie is expected to star TV sitcom star Kevin James of the CBS show "King of Queens."

Of course. We should have known better than to feel sorry for Mr. Bartman. Next: appearances with Jay Leno and Dave Letterman.
