Wellwood’s Spidey Senses Tingling

Scott Rintoul at Canucks.com has some ideas about who should play the team’s “characters” in the movies. For example:

Kyle Wellwood – Toby McGuire

When you heard that McGuire was going to be Spiderman, you raised an eyebrow – until you saw the movie.

In much the same way, Wellwood has exceeded expectations and now the sky’s the limit.

McGuire’s ability to play Peter Parker is ideal for Wellwood’s unassuming persona off the ice, while his contrasting role as Spiderman makes him the ideal actor to showcase Wellwood’s superb skill on the rink.

McGuire is the epitome of the guy that doesn’t look like he plays hockey but lights the lamp on a nightly basis – the exact niche Wellwood is carving out in Vancouver.

Not sure if Wellwood should be offended or not, but I’m sold on the idea. You can check out the rest of the Hollywood Canucks here. Mats Sundin is even featured, oddly enough.
