Something about the Thursday and Friday night football broadcast with Rod Gilmore and Joe Tessitore has always seemed familiar to me. It finally hit me.
Yes, the resemblance to the two sportscasters from Bedazzled is remarkable.
I would think this was intentional, but the movie was filmed in 2000 and Tessitore didn’t even start working at ESPN until 2002. As far as I can tell, they hadn’t worked together on screen before ESPN.
