Is there a Russian version of EGOT we don’t know about? Because it looks like Evgeni Malkin and Ilya Kovalchuk are going for it.
Already superstars on the ice, the Slavic Getzlaf and Ryan are putting their acting chops on display in a new Russian children’s movie, 12 Months.
I’m not sure if the hockey gods have this kind of pull, but this sets up the greatest episode of Inside The Actor’s Studio ever.
From what I can decipher (hey, it’s been 30 years since I studied Russian at U-Dub), a girl somehow intercepts 12 wishes that were intended for a younger boy to use over the course of a year. Instead of returning them to the rightful owner, she sets out to make his wishes come true so she can keep the magical wishes for herself.
Much zaniness ensues.
