UNFINISHED BUSINESS: DEEP DIVE – THE FAN (1996)

The legendary Tony Scott is the highlight in this episode of Unfinished Business TELEVISION’s DEEP DIVE. The guys look back at this flawed ‘90s thriller with Robert De Niro playing a psychotic baseball fanatic and Wesley Snipes as the struggling star in his sights. With a pre-Oscar appearance by Benicio Del Toro, how did Scott fall so short of the mound?
