Scott Hartnell is no stranger to the cameras. He played a prominent role in HBO's remarkable series 24/7 detailing the road to the Winter Classic last December and is well known for his comedic humor in his infamous "Hartnell Down" episodes.
So it's no surprise he'll be making a cameo on the big screen in Judd Apatow's next movie, "This Is 40." Hartsy will be joined by former teammate Ian Laperriere, who actually is quite visible for a second in the below trailer. Lappy has shown on DNL that he can charm a camera as well.
Former Flyers Matt Carle and JVR were also around for filming, but no word if they actually appear in the film.
"I will award myself the title of worst dancer," said Lapperriere. "JVR
and Hartsy had some moves. Matty Carle is a little more my type; a

CLEVELAND — Chicago Cubs slugger Kyle Schwarber's rehab finished just in time for the World Series.
Schwarber will bat fifth and be the designated hitter for the National League champions in Game 1 on Tuesday night against Cleveland's Corey Kluber. Schwarber hasn't played in the majors since tearing ligaments in his left knee on April 7 in a collision with teammate Dexter Fowler.
Dallas Cowboys orthopedic surgeon Dr. Daniel Cooper operated 12 days later to repair torn anterior cruciate and lateral collateral ligaments. He was expected to miss the rest of the season but was cleared to return on Oct. 17.
Schwarber played a pair of games in the Arizona Fall League, going 1 for 6 with a double and two walks, and flew to Cleveland on Monday.
Nerlens Noel has had surgery on his sore left knee, and the Sixers have not disclosed a timetable for the disgruntled center's return.
Noel has been out since the team's first preseason game. He initially had a left groin strain before experiencing soreness in the knee during rehab, and it was discovered he had an inflamed plica.
The team is calling the surgery a "minor elective arthroscopic procedure." It was performed in New York by Dr. Riley J. Williams at the Hospital for Special Surgery.
Noel eventually will travel to Birmingham, Ala. to rehab with associate clinical director Kevin Wilk at Champion Sports Medicine.
The Sixers expect to have a timetable for his return once Noel returns to Philadelphia. According to Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer, Noel is expected to miss three to five weeks.
This has been a rough preseason for Noel, who hasn't hidden his displeasure with his role on the Sixers' jammed frontcourt. The team has until Oct. 31 to extend his rookie contract but, per a report in the Inquirer earlier this month, the two sides have yet to discuss it.
