Actor Liev Schreiber has just joined the cast of the new indie hockey project Goon, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Liev Schreiber will portray the legendary hockey enforcer Ross Reardon in the comedy, whose cast already includes Seann William Scott, Jay Baruchel, Alison Pill and Marc-André Grondin.

Jay Baruchel also co-wrote the script along with Evan Goldberg for Michael Dowse to direct. The movie is loosely based on the Doug Smith and Adam Frattasio non-fiction book Goon: The True Story of an Unlikely Journey into Minor League Hockey. The story revolves around Seann William Scott's character, Doug Glatt, a former bouncer who leads an improbable team of hockey misfits to minor-league hockey glory.
