Speaking with Canoe.ca, Jay Baruchel talked about his career and upcoming role in Cosmopolis. Here is an excerpt.
“David Cronenberg is one of my heroes,” said Jay Baruchel when he was asked what prompted him to accept the role of boss Eric Packer, played by none other than Robert Pattinson
“I would take any opportunity to work with Mr. Cronenberg even serve him his coffee, to have the opportunity to speak and understand how he thinks.”
Jay Baruchel, even if he can not detail the scenario of feature film, an adaptation of the novel by Don DeLillo, said he has two scenes, “one early in the film and the other at the end.
“I will arrive on set, do my job and try not to make myself ridiculous,” said one whose career has taken off impressively in recent years end.
“I accepted the role in Cosmopolis without even knowing what it was.” He still managed to speak to David Cronenberg in recent weeks “for him to explain exactly what he wanted and what he expected of me.”
He also detailed his schedule the next few days, during which he will not have much time to rest. “I’m in Toronto on May 19 for trying on costumes, then I fly to Montreal that night. Sunday, I take the train to Toronto and I return on Monday the 23rd and Tuesday the 24th. ” (begins filming)
