This post is may be skirting on Hot Oil territory, but I had to do something while waiting for my perogies to boil, so whatever (when I look back at what I did with my twenties, I may have to shake my head with utter regret). Anyway...
Colby Cosh's joked about a Louis-Ferdinand Celine screenplay for the Oilers' season, and it got me thinking about who would star in Edmonton Oilers: The Movie. After some actor doppelganger searching, I came across a recent Oilfans thread about the same topic, and some of them were so good (especially Horcoff) I had to rip them off. (Although I still claim credit for Hemsky, Schremp and Reasoner). Unfortunately, I couldn't find a decent MacT (Lee Majors?).
A small, fair-haired child as Ales Hemsky.
Shaggy from Scooby Doo as the lovable Daniel Tjarnqvist.
Keanu Reeves, sporting a cocked eyebrow for the entire movie, as Ethan Moreau.
Viggo Mortensen as batshit Defenceman Jason Smith
Karate Kid's Chad McQueen as Raffi Torres, the LW struggling to regain his self-esteem.
Peter Saarsgard as the hothead rookie, Robbie Schremp.
Annnd... last but not least, Hilary Swank as Marty Reasoner, the hockey
player with a special secret!
