The Flyers' Ian Laperriere, Matt Carle, Scott Hartnell and James van Riemsdyk were in Hollywood last week to film scenes for Judd Apatow's latest movie, "This is Forty." 

The players had speaking roles and in one scene, the four are asked to dance.

"I will award myself the title of worst dancer," Laperriere said. "JVR and Hartsy had some moves. Matty Carle is a little more my type---a stiffer dancer just like me. But we were all sportmen and had a lot of fun."

The movie stars Megan Fox, Wyatt Russell and Leslie Mann, and is scheduled for a December 2012 release.

Apatow has produced such hits as "Forgetting Sarah Marshall", "The 40-Year-Old Virgin," "Knocked Up" and "Superbad."
