Casey Garven, the actor who played Hawks player Larson joined Mike, Tommy and Kevin for a podcast about how he was supposed to play Banks, which of the actors were pompous, Mighty Ducks groupies, and the one time he was recognized for being Larson.
Shoutout to Casey Garven for being an awesome dude.
You can hear the jingle Casey’s grandpa wrote in this Hamm’s beer commercial:
Here’s Larson before the state championship game in the scene Casey talked about. This is the legitimate I-will-run-you-over-with-my-BMX-bike-and-eventually-my-car-when-I’m-old-enough-to-drive snarl. This was also the scene when told somebody “Shut the fuck up!’ That didn’t make it in the final movie.
