A Star Is Born

Cerrato wowed the crowds with his acting

When the pride of Flushing, Vinny Cerrato, started doing radio on the local Dan Snyder-owned blowtorch, he got a lot of criticism.  Most argued that the Skins' Executive Vice President for Football Operations -- the man single-handedly responsible for the team's amazing track record of success -- probably had better things to do with his time.

What they didn't know, though, is that he can handle it.  He's a professional.  The City Paper uncovered the evidence tucked away in a back corner of the IMDB.  Our mumbling pseudo-GM is a movie star!  And Dan Steinberg's Sports Bog risked the permanent brain damage to obtain the visual evidence.

In case you missed it (and we know you did), Kindergarten Ninja was a straight-to-video release back in 1994, the heart of the Heath Shuler era. 

No, don't confuse Kindergarten Ninja with Kindergarten Cop, although if the comments at IMDB are right, it just might give you a tumor.

"THIS is a piece of utter excrement THIS is the worst movie ever to be made and not in a fun ED WOOD way."

"According to the IMDB, the length of this film is 82 minutes. That's 81 minutes too long."

"[N]o sane person could probably sit through the entire coma-inducing mess."

Sounds like the second half of last season, huh?

So maybe Vinny's star turn on the radio was just Snyder's way of rehabilitating him?  If he could handle that, then maybe there's a role for Vinny with the Snyder-backed movie production company?

Can't you just picture Vinny starring as the evil (but incompetent) super-villain opposite Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible 18?

So have T.O. pass you some popcorn.  If it's half as good as the Skins have been lately, you'll want something to throw at the screen.

Chris Needham used to write Capitol Punishment, and he's not to be confused with this guy.
