It’s time to start laughing about the Maple Leafs.The team and the NHL have given permission for their logos to be used in a movie called “Breakfast With Scot.”
The producers call it “a thoughtful comedy,” about a gay ex-Leaf and his partner, the team’s lawyer, whose lifestyle and relationship are turned upside down when they become the guardians of “a budding queen of an 11-year-old boy.”
The movie stars Tom Cavanagh (above) of “Ed” and “Scrubs,” and Ben Shenkman of “Just Like Heaven” and “Angels In America” star along with Noah Bernett of “Gothica.”
It’s nice to know enough time has passed when the words “Maple Leafs” and “11 year old boy” in the same sentence have absolutely nothing to do with sex crimes against children. I suspect it’s early days for the producers of “Breakfast With Scot”, but hopefully there’s room in the budget for a Don Cherry cameo.
