Our favourite cameos by Canadian athletes
After this week, Eugenie Bouchard has a much better chance of making a cameo on “The Big Bang Theory.”
Actor Jim Parsons, (Sheldon) is at Wimbledon and has been hanging out with #GenieArmy, check out our story on that.
After Bouchard advanced to her third Grand Slam semi-final this year, TSN asked Parsons if a cameo on his show might be possible. His reply was encouraging, and seemed more than simply gracious, “The only way I could possibly pay her back is to somehow get her on the show, if she even wants that,” exclaimed the Emmy-winning star. “Fair is fair, I would do what I could.”
Later, TSN reporter Mark Masters tells Genie what went down and her response is priceless. #OhMyGodHeSaidThat
Steve Nash – Entourage
Wayne Gretzky – D2: The Mighty Ducks
Elvis Stojko – The Simpsons (Kill Gil, Volumes I & II)
The two-time Olympic silver medallist voices his own character in this random cameo, and his outfit is clearly the best part. Oh Classic Stojko.
Ken Read – Corner Gas
Just watch this:
Cam Neely – Dumb and Dumber
Ever wonder where ‘Kick his a–, Sea Bass!” came from? Hall-of-Famer and President of the Boston Bruins Cam Neely, that’s who.
Not really a cameo, we know, but priceless.
Paul Kariya – D3: The Mighty Ducks
