Peck has stepped into Tom Hanks’ shoes for a ‘Turner & Hooch’ spinoff
Peck has not been active on his YouTube channel in 2021, but he may be busy with his newest role as Scott Turner Jr. in Turner & Hooch. The reboot of the 1989 film follows Scott Turner’s son as he inherits a destructive French Mastiff named Hooch. Scott Jr. must learn to co-exist with the pup while they work together as a K-9 unit.
The Disney+ series puts Peck in the shoes of Tom Hanks, who played Scott Sr. in the original movie. In an interview with Variety, Peck said he wants to “honor the magic” of Hanks’ film.
“I’ve looked up to [Hanks] for so long that I never had any delusions that I’d get anywhere close. But I think what was great was that this isn’t a remake. This is a continuation in certain respects,” he said. “I’m playing his son. In many ways, it was how do we honor the magic of what the original movie had and what Tom Hanks brought and try to infuse that into this new story?”
