Patton Oswalt, Big Fan



The rotund stand-up is winning praise for his dramatic role as an
obsessive, child-like New York Giants fan in href="http://www.bigfanmovie.com/">Big Fan, the
directorial debut of The Wrestler scribe Robert Siegel. Oswalt, who really is named after World War II General George Patton,
is best known as a semi-regular on the sitcom King of Queens. But he's a serious
student of film, and compares his off-putting but fascinating
character in Big Fan to 70s movies that are also off-putting
but now classics: Coppola’s The Conversation, Rafelson’s King of
Marvin Gardens
and Huston’s Fat City (23 minutes).
