Jay Baruchel isn’t exactly a household name, but he’s starting to compile a diverse enough resume of past work that audiences have got to be taking notice of him, at least enough to start thinking of him as a “that guy.” Some may know him as the fidgety dude in a lot of Judd Apatow stuff, some may recognize him as being the voice of the lead character in How to Train Your Dragon, others might think of him as the kid who co-starred next to Nic Cage’s hair extensions in The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, or maybe your memory even goes as far back as to recognize him as the stalker fanboy from Almost Famous. Well now Baruchel is going to be adding one more point of reference in his scheme to get recognition: he’s going to be the guy that writes those movies. Already the actor has a writing credit for co-adapting the screenplay for his upcoming hockey comedy Goon, and now Baruchel is said to have a couple more projects on the way as well. He has already signed on to adapt Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray’s comic book “Random Acts of Violence” for the big screen. It’s a meta sort of story about two comic creators having success with a murderous character named Slasherman, but then having their good times derailed when it starts looking like their character has come to life and began killing in the real world.
