Gil Renard (Robert De Niro, "The Fan")- Unfortunately for Wesley Snipes, De Niro played obsessed baseball fanboy Gil back in the days before he was neutered by Meet the Parents and could still pull off "dangerously unhinged." Our only problem with this movie is the fact that Gil is a diehard San Francisco Giants fan. We understand "suspension of disbelief" but c'mon…

Hector (Nick Swardson, "Blades of Glory")- The world's most intense figure skating fanatic, Hector is like a little guardian angel in the lives of skaters Chazz Michael Michaels and Jimmy MacElroy. The kind of guardian angel who makes hair dolls and keeps a shrine in his bedroom, but still.

Paul Aufiero (Patton Oswalt, "Big Fan")- A New York Giants fan so in love with the Big Blue Wrecking Crew that his favorite player literally kicks the shit out of him and Paul's fandom never wavers for a moment. In fact, it goes into overdrive. Like, "bring a gun to a bar full of Eagles' fans" overdrive.

Johnny (Randy Quaid, "Major League II")- Having the elder Quaid brother play someone who wears goofy clothes and reacts to sports the way a giant, slobbering bear reacts to poached salmon is a little easy, sure, but no less effective. The only reason he isn't higher on the list is that he's a rabid Cleveland Indians fan in the sequel. Where was he they were a ragtag group of loveable losers? Bandwagoner…

Syndrome (Jason Lee "The Incredibles")- When you think about it, superheroes aren't really that much different from pro athletes. They wear brightly-colored uniforms. They try to suppress their emotional issues in order to be good role models for kids. And they are often able to perform incredibly physical feats thanks to some kind of chemical enhancement. So Syndrome's super hero obsessed fan boy-ness kinda fits.
