Jay Baruchel on Best Fighters in Hockey History

August 17, 2019


THIS MOVIE, YOU DIRECTED THE SEQUEL TO GOON. GOON IS ABOUT HOCKEY FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DON’T KNOW.>>HOCKEY HAS A STRANGE ROLE, A POSITION THIS IT. THAT IS GOING TO THE WAYSIDE. THAT AIR PASSED, BUT IT’S THE ONLY PROFESSIONAL SPORT IN NORTH AMERICA THAT ALLOWS FIGHTING TO HAPPEN.>>Jimmy: EXCEPT FOR BOXING AND MIXED MARTIAL ARTS.>>YEAH. IT’S THE ONLY NONCOMBAT SPORTS IN NORTH AMERICA THAT ALLOWS FIGHTING AND IT USED TO BE FOR A TIME THERE WAS AT LEAST ONE ROSTER SPOT FOR A GUY WHO WAS GOOD WITH HIS FISTS AND THAT WAS FERTILE GROUND.>>THIS WAS SUPER POPULAR AMONGST HOCKEY PLAYERS.>>IT SEEMS TO BE. I DON’T KNOW ALL 700 PLUS NHLORS, BUT THE FEW I HAD CONTACT WITH — THEY SEEM TO KNOW IT AND REFERENCE IT. THEY ARE WEARING HIGHLANDERS HATS AND THERE IS A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF GOOD WILL.>>Jimmy: WHO IS THE NUMBER ONE GOON?>>THE SINGLE GREATEST HOCKEY FIGHTER. CHRIS DIDN’T WATCH MY MOVIE FOR YEARS BECAUSE OF THAT. WE TRIED TO REPURPOSE IT.>>HE WATCHED THE MOVIES THE GOONIES WHEN HE CAME OUT?>>HE WAS IN THE APEX OF HIS HOCKEY CAREER AT THAT TIME. JIM THEY LIKE TO BE ENFORCERS OR HOCKEY PLAYERS.>>AND IF YOU HAVE TO SPECIFY ENFORCER.>>I SEE. WERE THERE GUYS THAT EMBRACE? I ASSUME LOTS OF THEM LIKE BEING GOONS.>>A LOT OF THEM LIKE GETTING TO DO IT. >>Jimmy: DID THEY ASK YOU TO BE IN THE SEQUEL?>>I WAS VERY — WE KNEW ONE THING AND WIE WOULD DO THE SECOND ONE. WE WANTED TO POPULATE IT WITH AS MANY GUYS THAT PLAY HOCKEY AS WE CAN. WE STARTED RECRUITING GUYS LIKE BRANDON AND GEORGE AND COLTON. WE GOT AN E-MAIL FROM A GUY CALLING HIMSELF MEL THE MANGLER WHO JUST E-MAILED US WHO SAID I THINK GOON IS BASED ON MY LIFE. I KNOW FOR A FACT IT ISN’T. MY FIGHT IS STILL REGARDED AS THE BEST OF ALL TIME. SHE LITERALLY LIKE A FIREMAN AND AN EMS GUY. GREAT. YES. IN OUR MOVIE, THEY TOOK A WEEK OFF.>>Jimmy: EVEN IF HE DIDN’T, THEY ARE NOT GOING TO SAY THEY DID A GOOD JOB.>>ABSOLUTELY NOT. EVERY MAN THAT CAN KILL ME TO SAVE AS MUCH FACE AS POSSIBLE. WHAT’S COOL WHEN YOU PUT SORT OF NON-ACTORS ON SCREEN WITH ACTORS, THEY MAKE EACH OTHER BETTER. EVERY ACTOR WANTS TO SOUND AS REAL AS THEY CAN AND EVERY NON-ACTOR WANTS TO DO A GOOD JOB. THAT ENDS UP BEING A COOL THING.>>Jimmy: WE HAVE TO GUILTY YOU INVOLVED IN THE TRUMP-NORTH KOREA SITUATION. YOU COULD POTENTIALLY SOLVE THAT.>>NO THANK YOU.>>Jimmy: THE MOVIE IS CALLED GOON, LAST OF THE ENFORCERS.

    Bob Probert is considered the best.  Not only could he fight he had talent.  Even if he never had a fight he still would have made the NHL, he had talent.  The best pure fighter IMO was George Laraque, did he ever lose?

  • Reply Blair Rice November 15, 2018 at 4:03 pm

    Nilan is one of the best. But Probert was by far the best ever.

  • Reply hillhead11 November 15, 2018 at 9:20 pm

    He only picked Knuckles Nilan cause he played for Montreal.

  • Reply Douglas Smith January 4, 2019 at 7:07 am

    Jay Baruchel giving the role of enforcer a long overdue pat on the back. Read the book GOON which is an autobiography and how the movie got its start.

    Its so odd hearing his voice but not seeing Hiccup.

    Nilan wasn’t even close to the best. Middleweight at best

  • Reply K S March 29, 2019 at 10:18 pm

    Baruchel is a monster Habs fan, and if I didn't already know that I would've after this interview. I mean come on, Knuckles Nilan was tough, but best ever? He's maybe Top 10, get real.

    If Probert isn't at least part of your answer to that question, you're just wrong…. and this is coming from a Leafs fan, no bias here.

    Most First Nations fighters were scary: Craig Berube, Gino Odjick, Stan Jonathan, Sandy McCarthy and Chris Simon.
