Chaptham - a screenwriter who knows nothing about sports, but
sports MOVIES - has written a sports movie screenplay!
Here are just some of the
characters from his magnum opus, about the sport of Sportsball.
We open just before
the big game, on the morning of the annual end-of-the-year
Sportsballer Lenny Pederasty (Matt Valle) - it's pronounced
Pe-DRASTY... it's a
traditional Irish-Catholic name... and Joe Murphy-Smith Cortiz
a natural drafted into the sport at an advanced age after a
lifetime on the farm.
Rookie Johnny Beshoigen (Colin Willkie), a player for the
hometown Apple Pies,
is interviewed by reporter Buzz Mashengi (Eric Johnson).
them is Chuck Lookherse (Donal Thoms-Cappello), who is
suffering from a
terrible illness, but insists he's going to pull it together for
the sake of the team.
Jenny Slinksleeves (Stacey Jackson) seduces Lenny -
the heel! - in order to get him to throw the game.
