Joe Maddon is G.I. Jane

Since announcing last week that he planned to shave his head for charity Joe Maddon has talked “more than 20 players” into joining him to raise money for pediatric cancer research, according to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times.

Included in the bunch are James Shields, Sam Fuld, Matt Moore, and Matt Joyce, and Maddon gave a glimpse into the sales pitch he used to convince them:

It’s like Demi Moore in “GI Jane” – if you’re good-looking, you’re good-looking. Those of us who are not, we have something to be concerned with.

Maddon also said he might stick with the shaved-head look for a while and “just paint the top of my head black or brown or something.” And he might also hold “hat-less workouts” so everyone learns how to properly apply sunblock. Seriously.

Incidentally, when “GI Jane” came out in 1997 … Matt Moore was eight years old.

    “Incidentally, when “GI Jane” came out in 1997 … Matt Moore was eight years old.”

    I got ten years on this guy and will never make 1/100th of what he will make. I’m a little depressed

    Not that it needs to be said yet again, but Maddon is AWESOME.

    Does he look as good without a bra as Demi Moore did in GI Jane? I doubt it.

    “Incidentally, when “GI Jane” came out in 1997 … Matt Moore was eight years old.”

    So then, he was the target audience for the movie?
