Nelly Furtado to Star in Hockey Musical – How Stereotypical!

By  | 

Songstress Nelly Furtado has certainly made a name for herself in the music industry, pumping out many hits. But now it seems like Nelly will be putting her musical talents towards the silver screen. She will in fact be starring in a musical!

She was given a special part in the musical, directed by Michael McGowan, as a woman obsessed with hockey. Kind of typecasting since Nelly was born in raised in Canada.

McGowan has some words to say about Nelly, "Nelly is an incredible entertainer and, after speaking with her, I realized that she fully relished embracing her inner hockey fanatic."

Olivia Newton-John will also star in the film. Sometime this month, they will begin filming in Toronto, Canada.
