Ex-Maple Leaves player to come out of the closet...

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Ex-Maple Leaves player to come out of the closet...

Post by Tukaram » Fri Nov 24, 2006 10:02 am

...in a fictional movie:
The appearance of the first gay Toronto Maple Leaf will be groundbreaking, even if it is only in celluloid.

Actor Tom Cavanaugh plays a gay ex-Leaf in a comedy film Breakfast With Scot currently being shot in the GTA and Hamilton. He's one-half of a homosexual couple — his partner is the team lawyer — whose lives are turned upside down after becoming guardians of Scot, "a budding queen of an 11-year-old boy," according to the storyline.

What makes this movie even more unique is that the NHL and the Maple Leaves — part of a sport where no player has ever come out of the closet — have given the filmmakers their blessing to use their logos and uniforms. The Leaves have even agreed to let them do some filming with them at the end of a practice next month.
