The Wolf continued to dominate the media spotlight over weekend, following his dramatic rescue at New Suffolk last week. “I hope the Giants win so this nonstop Wolf coverage calms down,” Jeff Slecta said to me yesterday (the Giants won but the Peconic Puffin isn’t done just yet!).
In his latest interview with The Southampton Press the Wolf dazzled reporters, telling them he seeks out extreme conditions all over the world “because that’s what it’s all about”, and “no doubt” he’d go out again in the conditions that found him bobbing sans gear in the South Race (45mph gusts, swell 4-7 feet.)
I would ask the Wolf if he needs an agent, but I can already hear his response: “No. I’ve got it under control.”
Movie rights are complicated, though. And will he want approval on casting? Tom Selleck plays Scott, of course, but who plays the Wolf? Eastwood is the natural choice but he could be hard to get.(scan of the article thanks to Peconic Jeff).
