The 22-year-old was announced as the lead by Kevin Smith, who helms the pic.
Kevin stated in a podcast, “The guy whoâ€™s going to play my lead, whose name is Buddy McKraken in the movie, is a fella whoâ€™s in our flick [Red State] and his name is Nicholas Braun. Heâ€™s this really great actor who I love to death and he is the perfect lead for this hockey movie, for this script, which is based on this Warren Zevon song.”
Seann William Scott was originally in the role.
