Won’t Give Up the Fight: Interview with the star of Goon: Last of the Enforcers, Liev Schreiber Won’t Give Up the Fight: Interview with the star of Goon: Last of the Enforcers, Liev Schreiber Michael Kennedy3/15/2017 10:02:00 Am
A few years ago, an eclectic team of American and Canadian filmmakers teamed up for Goon. The Canadian comedy told the story of Doug Glatt (Seann William Scott), a bouncer turned minor league hockey enforcer, and the bruised and bloodied ice warriors that fought with and against him.
Canadian hockey fan Jay Baruchel co-wrote the script and played Doug’s friend Pat, while other Canucks like Alison Pill, Eugene Levy and Marc-André Grondin rounded out the cast. Former NHL tough guy Georges Laraque even had a cameo. But one of the most unexpected cast members may have been American Liev Schreiber (Spotlight, TV’s Ray Donovan) as enforcer Ross “The Boss” Rhea. »

Canadian treasure Schitt’s Creek has settled any fears fans might have about the show returning with a fourth season order. That might sound strange, if you know the show, because it has performed well, taken home a lot of awards, has critics raving, and is absolutely hilarious, but the show does have a certain air about it that continues to make people wonder about its longevity. That might also sound strange, but it’s actually a kind of compliment to Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara, who aren’t the sort of people who will just plug away because someone will keep signing checks. I’m a huge fan of the show, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they decided they’d done what they could with the Rose clan.
Perhaps more significant to the show’s future, I also wouldn’t be at all surprised if anyone »

Twelve years ago, at 21, Daniel Levy began an eight-year gig as a host on MTV Canada. Now he has begun his third season on “Schitt’s Creek,” which airs on CBC in Canada and Pop in the U.S., the sitcom he created with his dad, Eugene Levy. Daniel Levy spoke with Variety about the series and why he sees it as a validation of small-town life.
You created the show with your dad. How do you balance family and work?
Half the battle is knowing limits and boundaries, and that takes some time. From the beginning, we were on the same page in terms of what we wanted out of this show, and that really helped. The hard part is separating a family disagreement from a professional one and realizing that I can’t get away with the same things as his son that I can as his business partner — which is a show in and »
