JAY BARUCHEL (Hiccup) continues to cement his leading man status in 2010 with a slew of high-profile projects. He recently wrapped production on the Bruckheimer Films/Disney feature "The Sorcerer's Apprentice,” directed by Jon Turtletaub, in which he stars as the "Apprentice” opposite Nicolas Cage. The film is set to release in July 2010. He will also be starring in the DreamWorks romantic comedy "She's Out of My League,” as well as the DreamWorks animated feature "How to Train Your Dragon,” as the lead voice of ‘Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third.' Both films will be released in March 2010.

Also in development for Baruchel is Universal and Red Hour's "Johnny Klutz,” in which he will play the title role of ‘Johnny Klutz,' a character which he created--- a loveable loser who is impervious to pain. In addition, he will begin production on "Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse,” a feature length film based on a short film of the same name that he completed with Seth Rogen.

Roles in the Academy Award®-winning movie "Million Dollar Baby” opposite Clint Eastwood, Hilary Swank and Morgan Freeman and the summer blockbuster hit "Tropic Thunder” opposite Ben Stiller, Jack Black and Robert Downey Jr. garnered Baruchel much praise for his versatility. Most recently he was seen starring in Jacob Tierney's comedy "The Trotsky,” which premiered at the 2009 Toronto Film Festival to rave reviews.

Baruchel has a long list of additional feature credits, including "Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist” opposite Michael Cera and Kat Dennings, "Knocked Up” opposite Seth Rogen and Katherine Heigl, "Just Buried,” which premiered at the 2007 Toronto Film Festival, "Real Time” opposite Randy Quaid, and in the memorable role of "Vic Munoz,” the obsessed Led Zeppelin fan in "Almost Famous.”

Baruchel began acting at age 12 when he landed a job on the Nickelodeon hit television series "Are You Afraid of the Dark?,” transforming what was to be a one-time guest appearance into a recurring role. The role was a springboard for his career, leading to his first Canadian series, "My Hometown.” He then made his debut to American audiences as the star of the critically acclaimed Judd Apatow television series "Undeclared” on Fox.
