First Look Photos: Seann William Scott in Hockey Movie 'Goon'
It's hockey time! This isn't Kevin Smith's hockey comedy (that's titled Hit Somebody), but Goon is another hockey comedy, directed by Canadian Michael Dowse. It's currently shooting and MTV just debuted a few new photos. Seann William Scott plays Doug, a small town bouncer who, after "physically" defending his best friend, played by Jay Baruchel, at a hockey game, is recruited to play the enforcer for a minor league team. It's basically a good ole time hockey flick and that means plenty of fights and hocke. You can see two photos below, plus one on their site. "[This is a movie for] guys that are sick of PG blood and just nonsense."
"We have 55 speaking roles and 17 different fight scenes," Jay Baruchel said. "I think that we're going to entertain people and were going to hit them in the head with a two by four, but I think more than anything people will be surprised by how moved they are by the story. I really think we've created a pretty classic character, and Seann is doing something unlike he's ever done." That's some high praise. Goon will get an R rating, but we're not sure when it'll hit theaters next year. "In some ways it's a fairly... anti-sports movie because there's no -- well, I don't want to give too much away, but it doesn't have all the clichés." Thoughts?
