Jay Baruchel has joined Robert Pattinson in the David Cronenberg-directed Cosmopolis. Pattinson plays a financial wiz kid who puts his life in danger by betting his entire fortune against the yen on a tumultous day in the adaptation of the Don DeLillo novel. Baruchel plays the shy guy who founded the company, and who acts as the trader’s conscience. Samantha Morton, Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, Mathieu Amalric and Sarah Gadon also star. Baruchel just wrapped Goon, which he co-wrote with Evan Goldberg, and starred in and produced. He’s repped by CAA and Thruline.
Another compelling, Canadian, addition to, as Robert Pattinson put it, crazy cast. Very exciting news! You might know him from ‘Knocked Up’ or, ironically, ‘Fanboys’. *cough*
So who are we thinking….Shiner??
Shiner is described as “Eric’s Chief of Technology, small and boy faced. Wears a faded shirt and jeans and sits in a masturbatory crouch.” This doesn’t match the description from Deadline but Shiner is the closest character to Baruchel. Thoughts??
