Hockey Star Vogue-Intern Sean Avery Scores a Movie Deal

Sara Jaye Weiss/Startraks

It’s been a busy few months for Sean Avery, who went from hockey star, to Vogue intern, to guest editor, Gap model and back again (albeit on a different hockey team) — with big plans as a celebrity stylist regrettably dashed. And it seems we’re not the only ones fascinated by the fashion-loving Dallas Stars player. New York reports that New Line Cinema will produce romantic comedy inspired by the fashion-loving jock’s internl adventures. No word yet on who will star in the film, which will be co-produced by Sean’s close friend Lauryn Flynn. Tell us: Who do you think should star in the upcoming movie?

Fantastic cant wait to see it!

Joan on

Here’s hoping he is a better actor than hockey player. Also, if I was a co-star I wouldn’t say anything to upset him because god only knows what he would do to them. Maybe they should name the movie “Cheap Shot”

elizabeth on

JUSTIN CHAMBERS should play him.

Jamie on

I agree with Joan. He was an ass on the ice pulled a lot of cheap moves. Lets just hope he is as successful in fashion as he was in NY.

kacey on

Though he’s got talent, he’s also got a mean-streak. I encourage him to go into movies, because that move would make the NHL a safer place….and all the better without him. GO OILERS GO!!!!

First off, congrats to Sean Avery on scoring a movie deal! Second, as far as who should play him in a movie, I’ll say Jeffrey Donovan, because they look just alike, they have the same faces! Also, It’s interesting & sad how Kevin Connolly’s life was before he achieved fame!

jonathan…bodack im assuming….. im liking your new comment style… much better than your older way of pretty much just repeating what the article said. way to grow!!!!!

c on

This guy is a thug.

justcuz on

don’t care, don’t care, don’t care.

k on

he may be a cheap player, but he’s got talent. Congrats on the movie deal, and best of luck to him in Dallas. He may be an ass on the ice, but very few opponents forget about him and every team needs an agitator.

Grendyl on

i LOVE sean avery. hes such a pain in the ass on the ice but he makes the game fun.

Jackie on

wow. like he needs more of an ego boost.

rashi Narayan on

sean avery is such an amazing player.he helped the rangers so much this past season and they need him so badly. how could he leave us for dallas? all cuz of money.look at brendan shannahan:he wants to play for the rangers even though he wont get played that much.

I think Joan is on to something!

GoPens71 on

I like how People make him sound like some kind of hockey SUPERSTAR. This dude is nothing but a racist instigator. Remember when he called Gerorges Laraque offensive names, but nobody could do anything because there were no witnesses?

Pens in 09!!!!!

marika on

I’m so glad he’s out of NY…and we won’t have to deal with his antics anymore.

Good luck, Dallas!

Kathy on

Why would I watch any movie about him when I can’t even stand watching him in a hockey game???? He looks like Kevin Federline….and his fame like Kevin’s….is notorioty only.

? on

I’m with Kacey on this one! OILERS FOR STANLEY CUP ’09!!

Sheila on

Sean should play himself. There isn’t another person who can capture his style!

Chris on

I would love to have him come back to Detroit and play for the Redwings again!

gina on

Justin Chambers

Katie on

No one. I can think of a dozen other players who deserve this more than he does.

Jenny on

He’s a disgrace to the sport of Hockey. I can’t believe people would waste money on this nonsense. I guess it’s obvious that he could care less about hockey! What a loser.

Angie on

Scrap the movie deal, he’s nothing but a cheap shot CLOWN!!

KT on

Are you kidding me?! New Line Cinema YOU suck for doing this!! You probably couldn’t think of anyone else that would sell out as fast he would. Hey NY, you still love Avery? I hear if you give him 15.5 mil he might love you back.
