This year, Jay directed his first ever feature length movie. It’s called Goon: Last of the Enforcers, and it’s the sequel to Goon, a movie he co-starred in a few years ago. The movie tells the story of an enforcer named Doug Glatt who’s played by Seann William Scott.
Jay talks to Jesse about his love for hockey and the important function that violence plays in the Goon movies. He also shares a bit about his experience on the set of Undeclared and how it shaped him as a comedian. Plus, Jay drops some knowledge about his home and native land: specifically why Canadians are well represented in American comedies, and misconceptions about Montreal, his hometown.
Goon: Last of the Enforcers comes to theaters and VOD on September 1. You can pre-order it on iTunes now.
Wallace is also an Obie award-winning playwright and the author of several books. His latest is called Night Thoughts, an extended of essays touching on topics like politics, morality, and privilege.
You can find Night Thoughts on Amazon or your local bookseller.
