In the the upcoming film Big Fan, comedian Patton Oswalt makes his dramatic-lead star-turn as an obsessive sports fan whose chance encounter with his hero unexpectedly ends in violence. Does that sound bad? The trailer looks surprisingly good!

Wow! Remember when Robert DeNiro made this movie? Twice?Nevertheless, I'm feeling this Travis Bickle 2k9 thing! Let's hope that Big Fan avoids the mistake Observe and Report made: cannibalizing its leading man. Patton looks like he has more emotional range than Seth Rogen, so this could be a knockout.

P.S. Has Patton Oswalt ever looked MORE like a butchy-sad lesbian than he does here?
