Bobby Rayburn

Bobby Rayburn
Wesley deserved better here. The movie “The Fan” was a great idea, though the execution was a little muddled. We grant that Wesley Snipes (Bobby Rayburn) may not be on the same acting plane as Robert DeNiro, but he wasn’t given a character with much reason for viewers to care about. At the very least, Wesley Snipes is one of the few actors who you could buy in any athletic role, but without drawing empathy from the audience, does it really matter if he is the object of DeNiro’s obsession?

Monroe Hutchen

Monroe Hutchen
In what was the last athletic role of note of his great Fictitious Athlete career, Wesley Snipes donned the gloves as a prison boxing star, who was undefeated in prison boxing. As his legitimate career was derailed by incarceration, Monroe Hutchen (Snipes) never had the chance to test his skills against the best; until we remember that this is a movie and the former Heavyweight Boxing champion of the world lands in the same penitentiary.
