Scott, who is currently filming the American Pie reunion movie American Reunion, is Goon’s leading man, a bar bouncer whose passion for Canada’s favorite sport of hockey knows no bounds. Schreiber, meanwhile, stars as a competitor of Scott when he joins a ragtag hockey club in search of some hope.
In the game of hockey, most teams have what many call an “enforcer,” a player who lays down the law when a star player is checked a little too hard. Judging by the trailer below, the Shakespeare trained Schreiber is perfect in that role... for that matter, so is Scott!
Goon is based on the book Goon: The True Story of an Unlikely Journey into Minor League Hockey and brought to the big screen in a screenplay by Scott and Schreiber’s co-star Jay Baruchel (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice).
