Popular Canadian IZOD IndyCar Driver Alex Tagliani Films Scene in Score: A Hockey Musical

INDIANAPOLIS (March 9, 2010) -Alex Tagliani got his first opportunity as an actor playing a small speaking role for the upcoming film, Score: A Hockey Musical. Alex played himself in the film along with other Canadians such as Walter Gretzky, Marc Jordan and Margaret Atwood in a scene that was filmed at an ice hockey rink in Toronto. Alex thoroughly enjoyed the experience although he wasn't certain he would give up his role as IZOD IndyCar driver anytime soon.

"This was an incredible opportunity," said Alex. "I had so much fun doing this today! I got to put on my hockey skates again and it's been quite awhile since I had those on my feet. And I completely enjoyed meeting all of the actors and singers who are in the film. I don't think I will be pursuing a career in movies, but I had a great time and was honored to be invited to participate in the film."

Score: A Hockey Musical - which combines musical numbers with Canada's national sport - was shot in Toronto by director Michael McGowan (One Week and Saint Ralph) and features a story line about a teenage hockey phenom, played by Noah Reid, and his parents, played by Olivia Newton-John and Canadian singer-songwriter Marc Jordan, who are worried about the course the young hockey star's life is taking. The film has been shooting in locations throughout Toronto since early February and filming wrapped March 8. The film is set for release on October 22 in Canada by Mongrel Media.
