Jay Baruchel, Seann William Scott to Play Hockey in "Goon!" 

Jay Baruchel (pictured left) and Seann William Scott (second from left) are getting ready to play hockey in the indie comedy "Goon." Alison Pill (third from left) and Marc-Andre Grondin (right) complete the cast. The film will begin shooting in Winnipeg mid-October from director Michael Dowse.

Baruchel and Evan Goldberg wrote the script inspired by the book "Goon: The True Story of an Unlikely Journey into Minor League Hockey" by Doug Smith and Adam Frattasio.

Baruchel, who's also producing, will play the best friend of Doug Glatt (Scott), a bouncer who has been touched by the fist of God! Where can he go to test his powerful fist? To inspire a downtrodden hockey team of course! Pill plays the female lead while Grondin stars as a French-Canadian star hockey player.

Movie Featuring Beach Boys But Not About Beach Boys! There's a John Stamos Connection! 

There's a planned film by Fox 2000 is an untitled Beach Boys project which revolves around the band's music but is not a biopic according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The "Hairspray" team of Craig Zadan and Neil Meron is behind the project. John Stamos will also be producing. Why? Well, the actor has toured with The Beach Boys as their drummer and has personal connection with the band since appearing in the music video of "Kokomo."

Susannah Grant (the upcoming "Burlesque" and "Footloose") is writing the project which will be very similar to "Mamma Mia!" where the music of ABBA was largely incorporated within the narrative of the film.

So Long Mr. Tony Curtis, Thanks for the Memories 

A sad day in Hollywood today. Tony Curtis, a 1950s movie heartthrob-turned-respected actor has died. He was 85.

The actor died at 9:25 pm at his Las Vegas area home of a cardiac arrest.

Born in June 3, 1925, Curtis played a variety of roles but he's best remembered for the classic "Some Like It Hot" with Marilyn Monroe and Jack Lemmon from director Billy Wilder, and "The Defiant Ones," which earned him an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor. He and Janet Leigh also brought Jamie Lee Curtis to the world. (Click here for a complete look at Curtis' life)

So long Mr. Curtis, and thanks for all your contribution to cinema!

Take a look at his two iconic turns in "Some Like It Hot" and "The Defiant Ones."
