character says 'Shoeless Joe. . .' but


Charlie Sheen was on screen who didn't play Joe. Anyone else confused by this?

reply

Im not sure what the question is here. I admit I am far from being called very bright but Charlie Sheen played Happy Felsch and Joe Jackson was played by DB Sweeney. Was there a point where they called Sheen Joe Jackson?

Do you mean at the start when Burns (Christopher Lloyd) and Maharg (Richard Edson)are discussing which players might be interested in throwing the game? If so you might be talking about after Felsch (Charlie Sheen) slams into the wall catching a ball and Maharg says something about knocking his brains out. Burns replies with something like "What brains? Shoeless Joe is ignorant, but Hap Felsch is dumb."
