The right wing turned actor turned president of the Boston Bruins, Cam Neely has reportedly said yes to reprise his role as the ragey trucker Sea Bass, the greatest hockey cameo of all time in the long-awaited actual Dumb and Dumber sequel.
The iconic ruffian with the classy ‘Wine ‘Em, Dine ‘Em, Sixty-Nine ‘Em’ trucker hat is being written into Dumb and Dumber To that will once again feature everyone’s favorite morons Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carey) and Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels) some 20 years after we were first introduced to them in 1994.
But the best part are rumors swirling around that Bruins forward Milan Lucic will also make an appearance in the movie as the son of Sea Bass.
This is something Lucic has been pushing for quite some time. Here’s an excerpt from Boston Magazine:
A life-long Bruins fan, Farrelly said he would have to ask his brother about the opportunity, but said it would probably work, and they might be able to make it happen. “We were talking to him about playing son of Seabass. They look alike, they are both from Vancouver,” said Farrelly. “[Lucic] said, ‘Listen, I heard you’re going to do a sequel to ‘Dumb and Dumber.’ I want to be son of Seabass.’ I looked at him and thought, ‘You know what? That’s not a bad idea.’ Because he looks a lot like Cam, plays a lot like Cam. I’ve got to convince my brother. We need to figure out a way to make it work.”
Yes, please! Bearing in mind Lucic has been welcomed as the next Cam Neely for ages, this would be the most inspired casting choice since Harold Ramis as Seth Rogen’s dad in Knocked Up.
Laurie Holden recently took the female lead, alongside Kathleen Turner, Rachel Melvin, Brady Bluhm, and Steve Tom as well.
