The Beaver – Mel Gibson goes all Caddyshack on us

Here we have our first look at Mel Gibson in the Jodie Foster directed film, The Beaver.

The film follows Walter (Mel Gibson), troubled father and husband and CEO of a stalling toy company [who gives voice to] The Beaver, a glove pupper that Walter finds, starts to wear without pause, and adopts as a kind of avatar through which he carries out all of his communication. Almost all of the dialogue given to the lead actor throughout the entire screenplay will have to come from the Beaver, and be delivered in what screenwriter Kyle Killen describes as a “crisp English accent.” All very Lars and the Real Girl

As well as directing Jodie Foster also stars in the film which means the Maverick posse are together again.

I really do like the look of the Beaver puppet. More cartoony than I thought it would be and it is totally in the style of the Caddyshack gopher.
