Entertainment One and producers No Trace Camping and Caramel Films have today revealed the full cast for the upcoming Goon sequel, Goon: Last of the Enforcers. Liev Schreiber is set to return as Ross “The Boss” Rhea alongside Seann William Scott as lovable enforcer Doug “The Thug” Glatt. Also reprising their roles will be Marc-André Grondin as superstar Xavier LaFlamme; Kim Coates as Highlanders Coach Ronnie Hortense; and Alison Pill as Glatt’s love interest, Eva. Jay Baruchel, who co-wrote the screenplay with Jesse Chabot, will direct, in addition to reprising his role as Doug’s best friend, Pat. Finally, Wyatt Russell and Elisha Cuthbert will also be joining the production as brand new characters.
Russell, most recently seen in the 2014 hit 22 Jump Street, will star coming up in Richard Linklater’s That’s What I’m Talking About. In real life, Russell played professional hockey in Canada and Europe, following a collegiate career at the University of Alabama-Huntsville. In the film, he’ll play Anders Cain, a young volatile hot shot who becomes Captain of the Halifax Highlanders when a pro lockout suddenly sends a slew of new players down to the minors.
Cuthbert (“Happy Endings,” “24”) will star as Mary, sister and confidante of Eva, who we find now married to Doug.
“‘Goon’ was instantly embraced by audiences; and like all fans of the film, we are eager for the next chapter,” says Patrick Roy, President, eOne Films Canada & Les Films Seville. “We are pleased to once again join forces with No Trace Camping and Caramel Films, and delighted that Jay Baruchel, will extend his comedic talent and make his directorial debut with what is sure to be a knockout hit.”
Goon: Last of the Enforcers is produced by David Gross, Jesse Shapira, and Jeff Arkuss of No Trace Camping and André Rouleau of Caramel Films. eOne will distribute the film in Canada.
