His puckhead credentials were first established in 1999, when he played Tree in the cult hockey classic "Mystery, Alaska" (video). The Thunder Bay native tells that city's The Source in an interview this week that he's going to appear in "Wolverine," an X-Men spinoff, as "The Blob"; but that he didn't exactly have a Jean Grey poster on his wall growing up. "I wasn't a comic book kid because I was busy playing hockey here in Thunder Bay. That's all I wanted to do and all I dreamed of really." So say we all.
We approve of Kevin Durand as a celebrity puckhead. Incidentally, he will appear in "Wolverine" with Ryan Reynolds, who is also Canadian but hates hockey. And Ryan's also engaged to Scarlett Johansson. So we doubly disapprove. Strongly.
