What movie would Dino Babers recommend for him?: In the comedy mold, Dino would have Jake check out Shaun of the Dead, the 2004 zom-com from director Edgar Wright. If you haven’t seen it, it’s pretty hilarious.
Interesting Nugget O’Interest: Wright was offered wrestling scholarships from Buffalo, Lycoming and Sacred Heart among others.
