JERRY O'CONNELL CAST IN THE WINNING SEASON

8/5/03

According to the SciFi Wire, Jerry has been cast to star in the upcoming TNT movie The Winning Season (based on the book Honus and Me) with Matthew Modine. The movie, which tells the story of a boy who travels back in time to become a baseball player in the 1909 World Series, premieres on the TNT cable network in 2004. The movie is scheduled to begin shooting in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada later in August (from MySanantonio.com) Thanks to Megan for sharing the news.

Note added 3/30/2004 - The role of Joe Stoshack which would have been played by Jerry is now being played by Shawn Hatosy. It is unknown why Jerry O'Connell did not end up playing the part as originally reported by the SciFi Wire. One might speculate that he opted to do the independent film Fat Slags instead.

Season Has Values

Matthew Modine—who portrays baseball player Honus Wagner in the made-for-TV movie The Winning Season—told SCI FI Wire that the time-travel story is about old-fashioned values. "It's about honesty, being a gentleman, [and] about manners, how perhaps people had more manners and were more polite in the past. [It's about] the values of the past and the game of baseball," Modine said in an interview. "The idea that a baseball player could make so much money today, all the [past] baseball players—Babe Ruth and Honus—they're all laughing."

Season, based on the book Honus and Me by Dan Gutman, tells the story of a boy who finds a valuable baseball card, but his parents will not let him sell it. Through the dugout of an old baseball diamond, he travels back to the 1909 World Series and finds himself transformed into an adult, played by Jerry O'Connell. His relationship with the classic ball players teaches him that money is not as important as he thought. "When he says baseball players have servants and they live in big mansions, they just can't believe any of it," Modine said. "When he tells them that they make more money than the president, they just think the kid's lost his mind."

Modine added that he is currently training with an active minor league team in preparation for the role. "It was an unbelievably difficult schedule," he said. "They play 76 games and have four days off." The Winning Season, directed by TV veteran John Kent Harrison (Helen of Troy), is set to premiere on cable network TNT in the spring of 2004.
