Fratello’s Freebies: Just Wright DVD Giveaway

I made my big screen debut in Just Wright last May and got a chance to meet Queen Latifah, Common and some of the other cast members when Marv, Kenny and I shot our emotional scenes at the Nets’ former arena in Secaucus.

The film was recently released on Blu-ray and DVD and the folks at Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment were generous enough to send me a few copies. I plan to take one on the road and I’m going to give away the rest to some of you who have been checking in on Facebook.
I’m thinking if I want a future in the biz I better study some of the great dramatic performances in sports movies. So help me out by going to and posting your top two sports flicks of all time as a “Comment” on my Page. Six winners will be randomly selected from those who post their picks before midnight EST on Sunday, October 17th.

On the Road with Mike: The Czar’s a Star of the Silver Screen

I’m making my motion picture debut in Just Wright, which opened in theaters today. The role wasn’t exactly a stretch – I play myself. But Marv and I had to collaborate with the script supervisors to make sure they got the broadcast lingo, well, just right. I’ve already read some positive reviews and heard good things from several friends as well. Can’t wait to see it myself.

The folks over at Fox Searchlight made a wise decision to feature me prominently in the movie trailer instead of Kenny and Marv. I think Marv has been giving me the cold shoulder because the camera angles were better on me than on him.
