Casting Couch: Turk – the Movie

OMG! is reporting that actors Tom Hardy Logan Marshall-Green and Wyatt Russell are finalizing deals to play Derek Sanderson and Bobby Orr in the indie flick “Turk”.

Logan Marshall-Green as Derek Sanderson

Wyatt Russell as Bobby Orr

The film will be based on the book “Crossing the Line”, which details the self-destructive, downward spiral of Boston Bruin Derek Sanderson and his ultimate redemption with the help of his superstar teammate Bobby Orr. Production is supposed to start in the fall in Boston.

Marshall-Green is currently training on ice to prep for the role, but Russell isn’t going to have to prep that much.  He played collegiate hockey at University of Alabama-Huntsville and pro hockey in Canada and Europe.

Oh and if his name looks familiar, it should.  He’s also the son of Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn, brother to Kate & Oliver Hudson.

So WUYS, what do you think of the casting choices?

  1. Wait – you’re telling me that ISN’T Tom Hardy? UNCANNY.

    I don’t know much about Bruins lore, so I can’t rank the appropriateness of the casting but any time cute boys play hockey, I can’t complain.

    Anecdote! When Wyatt played in Canada, Kurt and Goldie shipped at the deli my friend worked and she said Goldie was as delightful as you would hope. I adore her. In fact, I just rewatched Private Benjamin. These are the things I do without hockey in my life.

  2. That guy is my NEW Tom Hardy. Since I’m not a fan of Tom Hardy post-Bane.
