TORONTO (Hollywood Reporter) - Pop star Nelly Furtado is to play a crazed hockey fan in "Score: A Hockey Musical," a music-driven drama about Canada's national pastime.

Furtado, who made her acting debut on "CSI: New York" in 2007, will perform the role of a zealous hockey fan whose love for the game is dismissed by a young hockey star's parents, played by Olivia Newton-John and Marc Jordan.

The picture, writer/director Michael McGowan's follow-up to his 2008 box office hit "One Week", is shooting in Toronto. It is set for an October release in Canada.
