A new TV movie at Syfy has announced the unusual casting of a well-known Olympic speed skater, along with an actress known for her role in “The Wonder Years,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The project, “Tasmanian Devil,” will feature skater Apolo Anton Ohno in his first role, and actress Danica McKellar, known for her role as Winnie on ABC’s “Wonder Years.”
Production began recently in British Columbia, the story reports, with Kenneth Mitchell of “Jericho” co-starring. The project focuses on base jumpers who have a problem with large Tasmanian devils in a remote park.
The movie is scheduled for a 2012 premiere.
