Field of Dreams, Louis C.K., Gaby Hoffmann, and stretching the limits of baseball-related

Screen Shot 2012-07-04 at 10.15.18 AM

OK, so saying this is related to baseball is admittedly a stretch, but it’s a holiday and I’m working and ... well, whatever. Humor me.

I was watching the season premier of Louie last night--I would have watched it earlier, but I was on vacation--and the actress playing his girlfriend looked really familiar, except I couldn’t place her. It turns out her name is Gaby Hoffmann and she’s been in a whole bunch of stuff over the years, but I recognized her from being in Field of Dreams two decades ago ... as Kevin Costner’s daughter.

Seriously. Gaby Hoffmann, who played the little daughter in Field of Dreams, played Louis C.K.'s girlfriend on Louie. How is this not a bigger deal?
