Seann William Scott Gets Violent In The Latest Goon Clip
The Michael Dowse directed comedy Goon released early On Demand last month, ahead of itís big screen release. As I rarely pass up the opportunity to watch a hockey movie, and as a fan of Jay Baruchel and Seann William Scott, there was no hesitation on my part to rent the movie through iTunes. I was not disappointed. In fact, the simple, but funny, occasionally bloody and strangely charming comedy may end up being one of my favorite movies this year.
Written by Jay Baruchel and Evan Goldberg, Goon stars Seann William Scott as Doug Glatt, a bouncer who makes up for with a generally sweet nature what he lacks in the book-smarts of the rest of his family. His ability to take and deliver a punch lands him a spot on a minor league hockey team, serving as the team enforcer or ďgoon. The clip below (via iTunes) demonstrates Dougís place on the team fairly well...
The way he waits for instructions before delivering exactly what heís asked to do in the most literal sense is almost Forrest-Gump-like, except he's hitting instead of running. What the clip doesnít show is what a decent guy this character actually is. Doug Glatt is great to watch, both on and off the ice, and Scott plays him perfectly, successfully managing to make Glatt both likable and a fierce physical opponent. And those who like Jay Baruchel will find him serving as the goofy but supportive best friend.
Goon hits theaters on March 30, but if you donít want to wait until then, itís available on iTunes now. More information, photos and videos for the film can be found in our Blend Film Database.
