"Wow, are there any movies he isn't in these days?" I wonder aloud during a preview for 'The Sorcerer's Apprentice', referring to the recently-bankrupt Nicolas Cage. Ol' Cagey has been hard to escape lately, as he hustles to restore his finances and maybe even buy back one of his re-possessed castles or dinosaur bones. "I know, he's in everything! And he's Canadian," my friend responds.
Huh? Oh, right. While I'm talking about the Sorcerer, she's clearly talking about the Apprentice, a.k.a. proud Canadian Jay Baruchel, who has permanently demonstrated his patriotism by having a maple leaf tattooed on his chest. If you don't know him by now, you probably know his face. He's been in everything from blockbusters like 'Knocked Up' and 'Tropic Thunder' to indie flicks like 'Fanboys' and 'The Trotsky' (the latter is a Canadian production that hits theatres on May 14).
