'Goon' trailer: Watch it here!
Goon, not be mistaken with Kevin Smith’s hockey flick Hit Somebody, is Jay Baruchel and Evan Goldberg’s big screen adaptation of Adam Frattasio and Doug Smith’s 2002 cult book Goon: The True Story of an Unlikely Journey into Minor League Hockey. In the film, Seann William Scott plays Doug Glatt, a hockey player with a penchant for pummeling players on the ice. Or, as Baruchel’s character describes him, “the Hebrew Dolph Lundgren.” However, things get a little shaky for Glatt when, despite having a new girlfriend (Alison Pill) that’s really into hockey players, he has to face fellow dirty fighter and hired goon, Ross Rhea (a spectacularly mustachioed Liev Schreiber) on the ice. Watch the full trailer for the dark, sports comedy, which is expected to skate into theaters by 2012, below. And lest you needed the reminder, “This is not f—ing baseball.”
