Life has gotten harder for Spence Ulchin since we last saw him

8 Jul

Patton Oswalt, formerly Spence Ulchin from the sometimes hilarious “King of Queens,” reprises his role as a New York booth-attendant loser living with his mother in the new film Big Fan. Only this time it’s in a hotly anticipated Sundance flick rather than a sitcom.

The plot of Big Fan sounds tough to pull off — a football fanatic deals with stress after getting assaulted by his favorite player — and any film about sports risks alienating fans with unrealistic scenes.

On the other hand, early reviews sound positive, and the director is Robert D. Siegel, who penned last year’s The Wrestler, my far-and-away favorite film of ’08. Conclusion: I’m sold.

I’ll be counting down the days until August 28th, the official release date. Trailer below.
