Hollywood Producer: I'm Bailing Out Lenny Dykstra

6/10/2011 9:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

For the first time in forever, it's Lenny Dykstra's lucky day -- because a Hollywood producer has agreed to post his bail ... after the MLB legend was booked on 23 felony charges this week.

Producer Jonathan Heap tells TMZ, he is willing to put up the $50,000 required to spring Lenny from the pokey -- because "everyone deserves a second chance."

As we previously reported, Lenny's people have been scrambling to come up with $50,000 -- 10% of the $500,000 bail price -- hitting up Lenny's famous friends for a handout ... but they haven't had any luck, until today.

Shocker -- Heap is also currently producing a movie based on Lenny's life.

Where's Lenny's great and good friend Charlie Sheen when he needs his help. Charlie should be ashamed of himself for being too cheap to help his erstwhile friend. Lenny is a great criminal and deserves Charlie's help!

He hit the biggest homer in Mets history. But he is a majorleague dirtball and s***bucket of the highest caliber. He forced his housekeeper to give him head on Sundays or lose her job.

Yikes!    

Someone should tell this Jonathan guy, that if he lends the money for bail, he will NEVER get it back from Lenny. If this director uses his credit card, Lenny will hijack it and use it to charter an airplane and fly out of the country. Lenny has caused so many people, including his family a lot of grief. This guy deserves prison.

amazing how everyone has to have a press conference or press release . . . or they have to tweet when they do something for someone . . . how humble.
