| Comparisons of Actor to Real Life Character
I am a Die-Hard Mets fan. I like to watch the Bronx is Burning. I do know my share about the Yankees. Here are my comparisons by using a scale from 1 to 3, 1: no resemblance, 2: decent resemblance, 3 amazing resemblance.

Oliver Platt who plays Yankees owner George Steinbrenner gets a 2. He does portrays him well.

Kevin Conway, who plays Yankees President and GM, Gabe Paul, gets a 1.

John Turturro, who plays Yankee Manager Billy Martin, has an amazing resemblance gets a 3.

Joe Grifasi who plays Yogi Berra, gets a 2, not the best of resemblances, but has the same voice.

Max Casella, who plays 3B coach Dick Howser, gets a 3.

Daniel Sunjata who plays RF Reggie Jackson gets a 1, because the skin color isn't the same to the real Reggie Jackson (not being racist), and because he isn't as big.

Loren Dean, who plays backup catcher Fran Healy gets a 3.

Erik Jensen who plays C Thurman Munson gets a 3. He also has that grumpy attitude.

Mather Zickel, who plays DH Lou Pinella gets a 2, because Pinella was heavier.

Alex Cramner, who plays 3B Craig Nettles, gets a 3.

Leonard Robinson, who plays Mick "the Quick" Rivers, gets a 2.

Evan Hart, who plays Bucky "Fucking" Dent, gets a 2.

Dock Pollard, who plays 2B Willie Randolph, gets a 2.
