Did you know that B45 Chairman Éric Gagné was also a movie producer? The former Big Leagues pitcher is the Executive Producer of Spaceman, the movie on the eccentric former pitcher Bill Lee starring Hollywood famous actor Josh Duhamel. The movie made its debut in theatres and on iTunes Movie on August 19th.
While asked about Gagné being the producer, the colourful Lee told this to the Men’s Journal: “He’s the main money man. I taught him to play back in the ‘80s, in Montreal. I coached Matty Stairs, Rheal Cormier, a bunch of guys. [Gagne’s] record will probably never be beat, most consecutive saves. He was a great competitor.”
