When Steve Bishop was battling his way through the low levels of the Atlanta Braves farm system in the early 1990’s with the Braves’ Pioneer League affiliate the Idaho Falls Braves he dreamed of one day being in the big leagues like his idol David Justice. While he never made it to the majors, or Double-A for that matter, Bishop has made it to the big leagues as an actor, and appears in the upcoming Moneyball movie staring Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill. Ironically Bishop will play his idol Justice in the film. In the interview Bishop talks about his relationship with Justice, the major leaguers who were regulars on the set, working with Pitt and Hill, and how being a former pro baseball player helped him to embrace the acting role.
