‘He’s A Great Book!’: Actor Portraying Ozzie Guillen Reviews ‘The Great Gatsby’

He’s a Great Book! with Ozzie Guillen — The Great Gatsby from Dan Bulla on Vimeo.

Courtesy of Big League Stew comes this amusing video from the minds of Jasbir Singh and Dan Bulla who are apparently two up-and-comers in Chicago’s legendary improv scene. Called “He’s A Great Book!”, it features a guy who does a spot-freaking-on impression of Chicago White Sox skipper Ozzie Guillen reviewing one of my favorite novels, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. It’s a real hoot and the more I think about it, I realize this is exactly how I envision Guillen would respond to Fitzgerald’s elegant prose. Hey, just because Guillen spends all his time at the ballpark and swearing like a sailor does not mean he could not appreciate the classic novels of American literature.
