The upcoming ESPN TV miniseries The Bronx Is Burning has potential, we think. The book it's based on is outstanding, it features Oliver Platt as George Steinbrenner and John Turturro as Billy Martin and it's directed by the guy who made Benny & Joon. (OK, that last one, maybe not so much.)

But the best piece of news we've discovered is that Shooter McGavin is going to play Joe DiMaggio.

We find this bit of casting amazing and befuddling. All told, though, we can imagine Joe D saying, " I eat pieces of shit like you for breakfast!"
