Breakfast With Scot is about two dads and their adopted son. In the film, actor Tom Cavanagh (Ed, Scrubs) plays a gay former Toronto Maple Leaf who works as a broadcaster for a sports network. He comes out of the closet after his flamboyant son needs his help dealing with homophobia.
The NHL and the Maple Leafs hockey team both gave permission for their logos to be used in the movie, which is a first for a gay-themed movie. “It was an easy decision,” said John Lashway, a member of the Leafs’ management team. “We have fans from all kinds of lifestyles, so it just made sense for us.”
The film’s currently being shown in festivals, and scheduled for theater release in November. Ben Shenkman (Angels in America, Requiem for a Dream) also stars, as Cavanagh’s partner.
