Seann William Scott in Goon!

IMTA alum Seann William Scott stars in Goon, a feature film about hockey. The film will be in theatres next month but is available ON DEMAND February 24th! According to Cinemablend, "In the film, Seann William Scott plays Doug Glatt, a bouncer who is seen by all of his friends and family as a black sheep. But when he gets into an altercation at a minor league hockey game, he's invited to try out for the team and that's where the madness truly begins."

Seann William Scott competed at IMTA in 1995. Casting Director Patrick Baca encouraged Seann to compete at IMTA to showcase his talent. Seann signed with a manager at the Convention and flew immediately to New York to audition for the soap opera All My Children. Although he wasn’t cast on the soap, the break-through role of Stifler in the hilarious American Pie movies catapulted Seann's career into the hemisphere. He co-starred with fellow IMTA Alum Ashton Kutcher in the cult classic Dude, Where is my Car?, voices the character Crash in Disney's popular animated Ice Age movies, and starred in the #1 hit film The Dukes of Hazzard with fellow IMTA alum Jessica Biel. His string of hits also includes Role Models, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Old School, Cop Out, and Balls Out: Gary the Tennis Coach.

"One of my favorite IMTA discoveries…Seann William Scott is doing wonderfully. He is a huge movie star now."
