Fans of cult classic A League Of Their Own, the 1992 movie starring Geena Davis are going to be beside themselves as details of the new Amazon Prime series of the same name emerge.
The hit movie documented the trials and tribulations of a female professional baseball team during World War II when the men were aboard fighting. It was based on the true story of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League and starred Davis, Tom Hanks, Lori Petty, O’Donnell in her first movie role and the one and only Madonna.
O’Donnell said of her part in the upcoming series, ‘I’m playing a bartender in one of the scenes at the local gay bar. I didn’t shoot it yet, I’m shooting it in the upcoming months.’ Her character in the original movie was best pals with Madonna’s and they became fast friends in real life. Whether Madge will make a cameo in the series would be another matter altogether.
