Great video of Jay at the Goon After Party at TIFF!
One of the most talked-about comedies of TIFF 2011 is Michael Dowse’s Goon. The film stars Seann William Scott, Liev Schrieber, and Jay Baruchel, who also co-wrote the tale of Canada’s national obsession, hockey, and the violence in the sport. After its premiere screening on Saturday, Notable.ca’s Julian Brass was on-scene at the after-party at Toronto’s Andrew Richard Designs, where the stars were out to celebrate the highly-anticipated flick. We caught up with star and writer Jay Baruchel – he’s a Canuck, by the way – to chat about Goon, get a glimpse at how he injects his trademark wit, and what it was like to work with funnyman Seann William Scott.

MTV caught up with Jay to talk about his new hockey film Goon:
“I saw a rough cut of it last week and it’s phenomenal,” Baruchel said. “It’s easily the best hockey that’s ever been captured on film, it has the most legit fighting that I’ve seen in movies in a decade, it’s damn funny and my fiancee [Alison Pill] is beautiful and amazing in it so yeah, life is great!”

Sorry I’m a bit late with this (I have one more update to do for you guys today, which I’m also late with) but things are crazy here as always, I’m thinking about hiring henchmen to help me out, lol!
You’ve probably been hearing this for awhile, I know I have, but the high and mighties (Chris Saunders and Dean DeBlois) at the How To Train Your Dragon franchise have been talking about it for awhile, and now it’s Jay’s turn to chime in on HTTYD 2 not being a sequel, but a second chapter:
“I’m going to be starting work on it this year, yeah,” Baruchel confirmed to MTV News during the “Freaks and Geeks” / “Undeclared” Reunion at the Paley Center in Los Angeles last weekend. He added that he knows the sequel’s story, too, as he’s already seen the script: “Yes I do. I know everything about it. I read it last week!”

I have no idea if this is true (sorry, I’ve been so busy lately!) but according to Just Jared Jay is engaged to adorable, talented and gorgeous Scott Pilgrim actress Alison Pill in September of 2012:
“[Alison] came to Montreal for Christmas and my gift to her was…I was going to give her a ring and I wasn’t sure, I wasn’t ready in my heart to say what it was, but it was just a ring for now – happened to be a 180 year old Victorian wedding band from England!” Jay said.
Jay and Alison, 25, plan to marry in September of 2012.
If anyone can confirm this (a link to the ET Canada video would be much appreciated!), please let me know via the comments because currently the news submitter isn’t working right. If it is true, congratulations to both of them, JBF wishes them all the happiness in the world!
