Singer is to play a crazed hockey fan in musical drama

TORONTO -- Pop star Nelly Furtado is to play a crazed hockey fan in "Score: A Hockey Musical," Michael McGowan's music-driven drama about Canada's national pastime.

Furtado, who made her acting debut on "CSI: New York" in 2007, will perform the role of a zealous hockey fan whose love for the game is dismissed by a young hockey star's parents, played by Olivia Newton-John and Marc Jordan.

The Mulmur Feed Co. picture, written and directed by McGowan and the follow-up to his 2008 boxoffice hit "One Week, is shooting in Toronto to March 8.

McGowan and Avi Federgreen are producing.

Mongrel Media plans an October 2010 Canadian theatrical release.
