    Danny McBride & Craig Robinson Part Of Swelling Cast Of 'Jay & Seth Versus The Apocalypse'

    But It Looks Like Daniel Radcliffe Is OutWe've never liked the term The Frat Pack (for all their potty mouths, the particular comedies that those to whom the term is applied make aren't actually that fratty; Todd Phillips' output is a better fit), but there's no denying that the ever-expanding famil...

    James Franco & Jonah Hill To Feature As Themselves In 'Jay & Seth Vs. The Apocalypse'

    Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel have teased and taunted fans of their feature adaptation of "Jay & Seth Vs. Apocalypse," the Internet sensation that hit all the way back in 2007, for far too long. But along with the recent announcement by Rogen that lensing will take place in early 2012, the actor has n...

    Jay Baruchel to Write 'Baseballissimo' As 'Goon' Sells For Seven Figures

    The awkward kid from "Undeclared" is doing something right. Both as actor and co-writer, Jay Baruchel's name is all over the hockey picture "Goon," a vaguely "Slap Shot"-ish comedy that, until it debuted at Toronto this past week, only had going for it some fairly uninspiring posters, a less than gut-splitting red-band trailer and the weird casting combination of Seann William Scott and Liev Schrieber to its name. But the picture's apparently uproarious, a bloody laugh-fest for the ages, and has exploded the hitherto staid conventions of the hockey picture (whatever they may be), at least until Kevin Smith aims to get his way and begins work ...

    New Posters and Images Debut For 'Goon' (No, Not 'The Goon')

    Premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival this week is "Goon," a hockey comedy co-written by Jay Baruchel and Seth Rogen's writing partner Evan Goldberg, which, it should be noted, is not the David Fincher-produced animation adaptation of the Eric Powell comic book "The Goon" nor is it the two-part Kevin Smith hockey epic "Hit Somebody" (which will presumably be the "Che" of bawdy hockey comedies). What it is, as we noted when the red band trailer debuted, a mediocre-looking comedy about a hockey coach who recruits a thug (Sean William Scott) to stop a violence-prone opponent (Liev Schreiber), notable only for Schreiber's truly aw...

    Seth Rogen Confirms He Won't Be In Judd Apatow's 'Knocked-Up' Spin-Off

    Actor Says His (Co-)Directorial Debut 'Jay and Seth vs. Apocalypse' Shoots In FebruaryOk, the speculation can end. Earlier this year when producer/writer/director Judd Apatow announced he was making a “Knocked Up” spin-off film that would focus on the married couple in the film played by Paul Rudd a...

    Jay Baruchel To Write 'Random Acts Of Violence' & 'Exorcism Diaries'

    It's not a big surprise that actor Jay Baruchel has grander aspirations than being "that awkward guy" in Hollywood movies. Give him half the chance, he'll gladly talk your ear off about his love of the horror genre and his plans to eventually move into the director's chair. In fact, last year, he ta...

    Jay Baruchel Joins David Cronenberg's 'Cosmopolis,' Maggie Grace Will Be 'Taken' Again

    Casting News Explosion Includes Rob Riggle As Villain In '21 Jump Street,' Tim Roth In 'Arbitrage' & Much MoreJay Baruchel is joining the cast of David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis." The rangy young actor will play a "financial whiz kid" in the film, who makes a fortuitous gamble over the course of the film's single-day narrative. Baruchel is joining a loaded cast, including Robert Pattinson, Samantha Morton, Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, Mathieu Amalric and Sarah Gadon. Baruchel will next be seen in the Michael Dowse-directed "Goon," which he co-wrote with Evan Goldberg, before lending his voice to the second film in the "How To Train Your Dr...
