Chicago White Sox slugger Adam Dunn said he will attend this year’s Academy Awards.
Dunn said yesterday that he met with manager Robin Ventura and general manager Rick Hahn. The schedule has been worked out and Dunn said he’ll be attending the Oscars with the contingent from the Matthew McConaughey film Dallas Buyers Club.
Dunn has a small role as a bartender in the film, which is nominated for best picture. He invested in the film as a friend of the producer, former minor-league baseball player Joe Newcomb.
Ventura encouraged Dunn to attend Sunday’s ceremony in Hollywood. Dunn said he has a tuxedo and that he has to “step it up a little bit.”
