Canadian actor Baruchel tries to find comfort amid Cannes hype

BY JAKE COYLE Associated Press

CANNES, France - Cannes is awash in glamorous celebrities who peacock on the festival's red carpet and confidently parade through its multitudes.

Jay Baruchel is not one of them. He may be the most uncomfortable person in Cannes.

Baruchel readily acknowledges it's "a little intense" for his tastes, which are not exactly red-carpet ready: "I don't like wearing suits or nothin'."

The 32-year-old Canadian actor was in Cannes for the premiere to "How to Train Your Dragon 2," for which (like the Oscar-nominated 2010 original), he voices the main character, Hiccup, the young Viking who befriends the dragons his tribe has long slayed. Baruchel, who broke out in the Judd Apatow TV series "Undeclared," is best known for his comedies, including "Knocked Up" and last summer's "This Is the End."

AP: You've spent some seven years on "Dragon," with a third film planned. What's that journey been like?

Baruchel: You can spend your entire career and never be part of something that's half as an important as "How to Train Your Dragon." We all knew it was a good movie, but I don't know if any of us expected to it be a global phenomenon. ... I feel like I lucked out. This is my "Star Wars."

AP: It took even longer for "This Is the End," which began as a short you and Seth Rogen made years ago.

Baruchel: I really didn't think we'd pull it off. It could have gone so wrong in so many ways. The whole time I was like, "This could be like a two-hour MTV Movie Awards sketch" - all of us playing ourselves, talking about movies.
