Elisha Cuthbert has joined the cast of Goon: Last of the Enforcers, the sequel to the 2011 sports comedy that starred Seann William Scott and Jay Baruchel.
Baruchel is back as co-writer and actor but this time is also directing. Liev Schreiber and Alison Pill are also reprising their roles from the first movie.
Scott is once again playing playing hockey enforcer Doug “the Thug” Glatt in a story that sees his team, the Halifax Highlanders, reunite with a host of new players during a pro lockout.
Cuthbert will play the outlandish sister of Pill’s character.
David Gross, Jesse Shapira, and Jeff Arkuss are producing. Principal photography is set to begin on June 21 in Toronto.
Cuthbert most recently starred in NBC’s short-lived comedy One Big Happy that was exec produced by Ellen DeGeneres and before that starred for four years on ABC’s hit comedy Happy Endings.
The Goon sequel marks a reunion for Cuthbert with Scott, with whom she starred in the indie dramedy Just Before I Go, directed by Courteney Cox.
She is repped by ICM Partners and John Carrabino Management.
