World Series 2022: Chase Utley and Rob McElhenney have a catch, 13 years after 'Always Sunny' episode
The last time the Philadelphia Phillies won a World Series, Rob McElhenney's character in the hit sitcom "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" was plotting a way to get a letter to Chase Utley. Fast forward to 2022, with the Phillies in another World Series, McElhenney was catching a pitch from the same man. The Phillies had some fun before Game 4 of the 2022 World Series, inviting Utley and former teammate Jimmy Rollins to throw the first pitch alongside former manager Charlie Manuel. In the season five episode "The World Series Defense," McElhenney's character Mac demanded another character Dee, played by McElhenney's wife Kaitlin Olson, run onto the field to Utley and pass him a letter. Aside from the first pitch, McElhenney has been active in the sports world lately, thanks to his purchase of Welsh soccer club Wrexham alongside Ryan Reynolds.wftv.com

Miles Teller honored to play Army vet Adam Schumann in 'Thank You for Your Service'
In a recent phone conversation from Chicago with Schumann and Miles Teller, who plays the soldier in the film, the answer is simple. "I think, 'Welcome home' is the best thing you can say to anybody," Schumann said. Teller added that there are other ways to respond to veterans, too; something that he gained insight by working on the film. Teller realizes that sometimes asking about military service is a difficult subject to broach with veterans, particularly for those who served in wars prior to Iraq and Afghanistan. Hall, who also tapped into the nerve of the subject matter with his Oscar-nominated screenplay for "American Sniper," very much did the same with "Thank You for Your Service," Schumann said.
