Sports journalist Jay Mariotti, who just joined the San Francisco Examiner, tweeted this morning that “I have a small role in a movie.jay Play a sportswriter. Need to wear ’80s garb. Nehru?” I asked him to tell us more. “A director friend is doing a movie about Bill Lee, the eccentric pitcher from the ’70s and ’80s,” he writes in an email. “Apparently, I am one of three reporters surrounding the Lee character as he quits baseball for good. Bill Lee is played by Josh Duhamel.”
