One of the more pleasant surprises of the year was Seann William Scott’s turn in the Jay Baruchel and Evan Goldberg-penned hockey comedy “Goon.” The Canuck laffer has spawned something of a cult, with the movie being a favorite in some corners of the internet, in addition to it doing strong business north of the border. Now it looks like we’ll get to see the continuing adventures of the Halifax Highlanders on the big screen.

Jackie Earle Haley, the actor best known in Academy circles for his comeback role in 2006's "Little Children," and in genre cliques for playing Freddie Kruger in the rebooted "Nightmare On Elm Street" series and appearing as Rorschach in "Watchmen," has just bagged a new role. The 51-year-old actor, who found success as a child in the '70s with "The Bad News Bears" series and 1979's acclaimed coming-of-age movie "Breaking Away," has joined the cast of yet another reboot: "RoboCop." Haley will portray Maddox, a man who dispenses the military training to Robocop.

"Cosmopolis," an adaptation of Don DeLillo’s typically provocative novel of the same name, is the first feature film since 1999's "eXistenZ" that filmmaker David Cronenberg has directed and scripted. This in part explains why "Cosmopolis" is such a triumph: it’s both an exceptional adaptation and a remarkable work unto itself.

If you're in Canada right now, particularly in Ontario and Quebec, you already know that right now, it's fucking cold. But that's not going to stop Kurt Russell, Matt Dillon and Jay Baruchel who are going to tough out the Canadian winter to make us laugh. Those brave souls.

Known as the place of free healthcare, politeness and saying "about" weird, you wouldn't initially think of Canada as a hotbed of punk rock, but for those of you dialed in, you already know the nation has laid claim to many legendary acts over the years (Nomeansno, D.O.A., Asexuals, The Diodes, SNFU, Subhumans etc.) and now Jay Baruchel, of all people, is going to help tell the story.

But It Looks Like Daniel Radcliffe Is OutWe've never liked the term The Frat Pack (for all their potty mouths, the particular comedies that those to whom the term is applied make aren't actually that fratty; Todd Phillips' output is a better fit), but there's no denying that the ever-expanding family tree of actors and comics who've risen up in the last few years, mostly thanks to the patronage of Judd Apatow, are an incestuous lot. Clearly great friends in real life, they like nothing better than cameoing in each other's work, teaming up for buddy pictures, and generally getting paid to hang out on screen.

Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel have teased and taunted fans of their feature adaptation of "Jay & Seth Vs. Apocalypse," the Internet sensation that hit all the way back in 2007, for far too long. But along with the recent announcement by Rogen that lensing will take place in early 2012, the actor has now revealed that two friends and regular collaborators in James Franco and Jonah Hill will be featuring in the film as themselves.

The awkward kid from "Undeclared" is doing something right. Both as actor and co-writer, Jay Baruchel's name is all over the hockey picture "Goon," a vaguely "Slap Shot"-ish comedy that, until it debuted at Toronto this past week, only had going for it some fairly uninspiring posters, a less than gut-splitting red-band trailer and the weird casting combination of Seann William Scott and Liev Schrieber to its name. But the picture's apparently uproarious, a bloody laugh-fest for the ages, and has exploded the hitherto staid conventions of the hockey picture (whatever they may be), at least until Kevin Smith aims to get his way and begins work on his apparently epic two-part swansong "Hit Somebody."
