‘Sandlot’ star Patrick Renna reflects on Ham, ‘The Big Green’ and his new kickstarter film

Fans may remember Patrick Renna from his roles in Sandlot and The Big Green, but he has appeared in over 25 films and several TV shows (ER, Boston Legal, Judging Amy, The Closer, X-Files and CSI).

Renna is seeking to get his new feature-length comedy Bad Roomies off the ground, using kickstarter. Renna spoke to The Global Dispatch about the film and his other projects.

“It’s a fun movie…It’s about two guys who live together and need to find a third roommate. They choose a beautiful woman for all of the wrong reasons and madness ensues.”

Renna continues, praising his co-creators on Bad Roomies, similar in style to a “Judd Apatow film,” before recounting his start in Sandlot, then Son In Law with Pauly Shore.

Additionally, Renna discussed his other projects and his pride in the humorous X-Files episode, “Bad Blood,” with Luke Wilson.

Bad Roomies is a dark comedy about two guys living together who, after losing their roommate, put out an ad to find a new one. After a series of disastrous interviews with potential roommates they settle on an apparently harmless but beautiful girl. All seems to be going well despite the simmering rivalry until one drunken night causes all three roommates to make a horrible mistake that start them on a downward spiral. A hilarious yet disastrous game of roommate versus roommate takes a turn that will change all their lives forever.
