Jay Baruchel to Direct and Star in ‘Goon’ Sequel

by Matt Singer May 15, 2015 @ 2:33 PM
That’s a scene from 2011’s Goon, a warm but irreverent comedy about a sweet-natured (but incredibly tough) enforcer for a minor league hockey team. Goon was a Slap Shot for the 2000s, right down to the way it almost immediately gained a small but deeply passionate cult fanbase, and it boasted one of the best performances of Scott’s career. (Seriously. He’s awesome in it. And he’s great as Stiffler, too, and doesn’t get the respect he deserves as a comic actor in general. But that’s a conversation for another time.)

The recent TCA press tour presentations saw FX announcing some incredibly high-profile talent for future series, from the likes of additional projects with Louis C.K. to Zach Galifianakis and more, and now another name has been added to the list. 'This is the End' and upcoming 'Robocop' remake star Jay Baruchel will return to TV to headline FX's new comedy 'Man Seeking Woman,' an adaptation of 'The Last Girlfriend on Earth.'

New 'RoboCop' Clips: "I'd Put Those Guns Down If I Were You" [UPDATE]

If there's one thing we know for sure, it's that the upcoming remake of 'RoboCop' will be, by default, bigger, louder and faster than the original. A new clip from the film only confirms this, making it very clear that this particular iteration of the cyborg police officer was created in the age of CGI.

See the Cast of 'Undeclared' Then and Now

by Britt Hayes September 18, 2013 @ 2:31 PM
Judd Apatow followed up his acclaimed television series 'Freaks and Geeks' (produced by Apatow, created by Paul Feig) with 'Undeclared,' a similarly -- and tragically -- short-lived series. This time, the plot followed a group of college freshmen struggling to navigate their new adult lives and all the friendships and relationships along the way. The show ended in 2002 after just one season, but found an extended life on DVD and helped kickstart the careers of Charlie Hunnam, Seth Rogen, and Jay Baruchel. 11 years later, we head back to the fictional University of Northeastern California and see what our favorite freshmen are up to now.

This is the way the world ends; not with a whimper but with an extended improv session featuring Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, James Franco, Craig Robinson, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride and a fleet of other popular young comics. On an ordinary night in Los Angeles, the straight-up-biblical apocalypse begins. After the Rapture, our six heroes board themselves up in Franco's Hollywood mansion and wait for a rescue. It never comes. Supplies dwindle. Tensions mount. 'This Is the End.'

'This Is the End' NSFW Clips: Seth Rogen and Friends Start Losing Their Minds

by Jacob Hall May 22, 2013 @ 2:23 PM
'This Is the End' has one of the most meta concepts in recent memory. Seth Rogen, James Franco, Craig Robinson, Jonah Hill and Jay Baruchel play themselves, holed up in Franco's home while the apocalypse rages outside. It sounds like a recipe for either big laughs or disaster (although early buzz suggests the former), but two clips have arrived to give us a taste of what the finished film will feel like.

'This is the End' Featurette: James Franco Plays a Character Named James Franco

One of the gimmicks behind Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's 'This is the End' is that the cast is loaded with celebrities playing themselves. But that gets interesting when you have a performer like James Franco, whose life has become an art project. In this new featurette, you can see how the actors approached playing themselves.
