The match-up between the Cleveland Indians and the Chicago Cubs is a pretty epic World Series battle. Even more amazing are the Hollywood actors revisiting old characters that have relevance to the teams at play.
Charlie Sheen, who famously played rookie pitcher Ricky “Wild Thing” Vaughn in the 1989 baseball comedy/drama Major League, posted a brief clip Wednesday of Vaughn emerging from the bullpen.
Midway through the video, Sheen, now 51 years old, appears in an Indians jersey, along with Vaughn’s famous black-rimmed glasses and says, “Go Tribe!” in support of the team.
Last week, Sheen openly volunteered to throw out an opening pitch at one of the World Series games.
Comedic actor Will Ferrell is also getting into the spirit, but he’s supporting the Chicago Cubs, who are taking part in the World Series for the first time in 71 years.
Ferrell showed up on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and resurrected his impression of legendary sports announcer Harry Caray on Tuesday night’s show. Ferrell debuted his impression on Saturday Night Live many years ago but brought it back in honour of the Cubs’ advancement to the Series.
Ferrell even led the audience in a rendition of Take Me Out to the Ballgame.
