In the sports comedy Goon, which can be seen now in theaters or via VOD, Seann William Scott plays Doug "The Thug" Glatt, a simple-minded bouncer who defends his shit-talking friend Ryan (Jay Baruchel) at a minor league hockey game and finds his true calling as an "enforcer," the guy every hockey team employs to skate on briefly and knock somebody the fuck out. Baruchel, a rabid fan of the Montreal Canadiens (Les Canadiens de Montréal, s'il vous plaît), co-wrote the story with Evan Goldberg (Superbad, Pineapple Express) based on Adam Frattasio and Doug Smith's book Goon: The True Story of an Unlikely Journey into Minor League Hockey, which chronicles Smith's real-life journey from amateur boxer to championship-winning enforcer. Check out our vid with Baruchel and Scott, where they break down the significance of the hockey goon, what happens when you accidentally clock one during a shoot, and the side of enforcers that few ever see.
