Sean Penn to play surfer Paskowitz?
Sean Penn is reportedly in talks to portray legendary surfer Dorian 'Doc' Paskowitz in a biopic. According to Variety, Penn will certainly produce this film, but he is also very interested to play the leading part. Paskowitz and his family were the subject of Doug Pray's documentary “Surfwise”.

Dorian Paskowitz is a graduate of the prestigious Stanford Medical School, but he abandoned his medical career to concentrate on surfing. He and his third wife lived on the road in camper vans for 25 years and they managed to set up the first surf camps and to raise nine children. In the same story, Variety also mentioned that Penn is interested in joining director Curtis Hanson’s soon-to-shoot surfing movie “Mavericks” in a supporting role.



The famous actor will also star in the highly anticipated Terrence Malick’s new movie “The Tree of Life” along with Brad Pitt. The film tells the story of a family who must come to terms with a devastating loss and, in doing so, they discover life’s most important lessons of unselfish love and forgiveness.
