Actor JERRY O'CONNELL became an object of fun for a group of drunk baseball fans after he asked them to stop ruining his pal Gary Sinise's day at the ballpark.
The two stars were watching a game at the Dodgers stadium in Los Angeles when the fans recognised Sinise from Forrest Gump and started referring to him by his amputee character, Lieutenant Dan.
At first it was fun, but when the fans didn't stop, O'Connell decided to do something about their behaviour - only to receive a backlash about his own 1986 movie.
He says, "I had to go up to the cheap seats and tell these guys to stop yelling 'Lieutenant Dan!' They sort of obliged a little bit... I get back to my seat and all they kept yelling was 'Hey, it's the fat kid from Stand By Me.'"
