If they gave out awards simply for loving your country, Jay Baruchel would be in the Hall of Fame.
He's one of Hollywood's favourite young actors in films like 'Million Dollar Baby', 'Tropic Thunder', 'Knocked Up', 'She's out of My League' & 'How to Train Your Dragon'. But for Jay, home is still Montreal - he has a burning passion for Le Bleu-Blanc-et-Rouge (God/Dawkins love you, son) and he literally wears our Maple Leaf over his heart.
But that's not all... as a filmmaker, Jay wants to tell Canadian stories as he did with 'Goon' - the bloody-knuckle hockey comedy he starred in and co-wrote. All of which made him the perfect panelist for Canada Reads - CBC's annual battle of the books.
Jay defended Hugh MacLennan's 'Two Solitudes' - a symbol of the divide that can separate French and English - and, so fitting for Jay - a classic work about what it means to be Canadian.
And you can also catch Jay in this summer's end-of-the-world comedy (playing himself, alongside a who's who of Hollywood comedians) 'This Is The End'. It opens tomorrow, June 14, 2013.
