John C. Reilly to play Jerry Buss in the pilot on Showtime Lakers


If you want to revive the Showtime Exhibition glory days, you will find some help at some point in the future.

HBO has piloted the work on that team, and they only cast actor John C. Reilly in the role of team owner Jerry Buss.

Reilly replaces Michael Shannon, who was previously in the role but left the project due to creative differences, by Deadline.

The pilot is based on Jeff Pearlman's book about Showtime Lakers, “Showtime: Magic, Kareem, Riley, and the Los Angeles Dynasty Lakers in the 1980s.” It is being produced by Adam McKay, who worked with Reilly on some projects others, including “Talladega Nights,” “Step Brothers” and “Holmes & Watson.” t

Reilly Jason Clarke announced previously, showing Jerry West. An air date for the pilot was not announced.

Buss and Reilly do not seem to have much similarity, but Reilly is a good actor and he could draw this.

Problems in the world first

Sorry, high rollers, your rotor is clipped.

Oceanport, N.J., City Council rejected a proposal to allow more helicopter flights to access Monmouth Park, which also has a sports betting operation.

An ownership group said that more helicopters could introduce high rollers, creating more revenue that would benefit Oceanport.

Ten flights a year are now permitted on a nearby helipad on state property. But Councilor Robert Proto says the park is the “system of honor”.

The residents say they are concerned about noise, pollution and reduced property values.

Your favorite sports moment

What is the favorite sports moment? Please email me at, and I could run it in the future. And, yes, if the favorite moment is about the angels or ducks or a team just outside L ..

Today's moment comes from Mike Valdez as Garden Grove:

I was a Dodger fan since 1958. I've been bullying Blue Dodger since I was 10 years old. I am now 71.

On September 18, 2006, my son went 38 years of age Erik and I to Dodger Stadium to see a game against Padres. Brad Penny was our leading potter. At the bottom of the ninth and the Padres out of 9-5, Jeff Kent met a town run to the middle left with a score of 9-6. Follow J.D. Drew with homage on the right – score 9-7 now! Padre's manager, Bruce Bochy, then brought Trevor Hoffman closer to face Russell Martin, who woke up a homer to the left, making the score 9-8! Follow Marlon Anderson with homage on the right, connecting the score! The game went to extra intent.

In the top of the 10th, Padres scored running. Score now 10-9 Padres. At the bottom of the 10th, Kenny Lofton and Nomar Garciaparra walked in the outdoor pavilion to win the game 11-10. The crowd broke into a pandemonium. My heart beat so fast that I had to stop to catch my breath. The crowd was very fast that night – my son and I are with them.

Vin Scully ended the night but said, “Oh, and at the same time, the Dodgers are first and foremost!” I still have our ticket windows.

Note on the side: My son, Erik, died in 2013, but my memory of Dodger on my heart forever will share us hottest September evening.
