Sebastian Stan Joins Margot Robbie In "I, Tonya"

Put together by Margot Robbie as one of the projects from her production company, Tonya Harding pic I, Tonya is now aiming to shoot soon, with Craig Gillespie in the director's seat. And they've found someone for a key role in the story: Sebastian Stan will be Harding's ex-husband Jeff Gillooly.

Initially viewed as a plucky underdog who'd escaped grinding poverty to rise to the top of the figure-skating world, Harding famously went full Seagal on her closest rival at a championships in Detroit. Her husband of the time, Gillooly hired Shane Stant to attack Nancy Kerrigan with a police baton, leaving her with a badly bruised, but not broken leg.

Riffing on baseball’s 'Shot Heard Around The World', tabloid types immediately dubbed the incident 'The Whack Heard Round The World'. It’d all been captured on camera, leaving Harding disgraced and eventually banned. Kerrigan recovered in time to compete in the 1994 Olympics. Gillooly got two years in prison for racketeering, as he was judged to be the driving force in the hobbling plot.
