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.
Great article with interview snippets from Jay, his lovely bride to be, the talented Alison Pill and Goon star Sean Williams-Scott ( they have a fabulous pic of Jay there, too, so you have to go check it out!):
Baruchel said he knew from the instant he met Pill that he wanted to marry her. When she first arrived on set, there were a few days where she had little to do — and the 29-year-old Baruchel saw an opportunity.
“I was like: ‘When else will I have a spare three 12-hour days in a row where she has no choice but to listen to me?’ I (thought): ‘I am milking this, I am hitting on her.’”
