Steve Phillips - The Movie

Yesterday, it was reported that Steve Phillips, a baseball analyst for ESPN, was suspended for one week because he was having an affair with a 22-year-old production assistant named Brooke Hundley. Unfortunately for Phillips, the suspension is the least of his worries. Phillips is married and when he tried to break it off with the 22-year-old, she went nuts and started stalking and harrassing his wife and kids. She even left a letter on the door of his home addressed to his wife detailing the affair and slamming his marriage. The full letter can be found here. And believe it or not, that isn't even the worst part of this story. The worst part of this story is that the woman that Steve Phillips cheated on his wife with, and jeopardized his career for, looks like this:




I figured such a intriguing story has a good chance of becoming a movie, so I tried to come up with the perfect cast for the two leads.

The pick for Steve Phillips is pretty obvious: John Slattery of Mad Men fame.



I tried to think which young Hollywood star could best capture the unique look of Brooke, one person immediately popped in my head: the skater dude from Clueless.



I realize that he would have to put on some weight for the role, but I'm sure that Breckin Meyer would have no problem making that sacrifice for the opportunity to play such a star-making role.

Then inspiration struck. Forget the dude from Clueless. Sure, he's the perfect actor for the role, but he isn't the perfect character for the role. I admit, that my suggestion is a little out there, but once you see it, I think you'll agree that when it comes to the perfect portrayal of Brook Hundley, Junior Gorg is the only option. See for yourself, and just try to argue with me:



I've even come up with a title for the movie and created a mock-up movie poster to help drum up interest and get this thing made. The title and poster are based on the fact that this psycho looks like the modern day equivalent of Marla Hooch from A League of Their Own.
