Jay Baruchel Has Barely Met James Franco


Okay, I know this shouldn’t be the takeaway from this interview with Jay Baruchel, in which he talks about writing roles for women and for himself in Goon and Random Acts of Violence, plus getting ready to work on Seth Rogen’s The Apocalypse, but how crazy is it that he’s barely met James Franco? “People have always sort of locked me into this sort of [Judd Apatow–based] stable, but the truth is…I have met Franco a grand total of twice in my life, and it was literally just a handshake, ‘Nice to meet you,’ kind of thing.” Who knew?
