Exclusive Interview With Montreal's Jay Baruchel

Montreal's own Jay Baruchel sits down with Andrew Berkshire to talk Habs, hockey, and his new movie Goon.

Sunday afternoon I sat down with Montreal's own Jay Baruchel in his NDG home to watch the Montreal Canadiens take on the Winnipeg Jets for Scott Gomez's anniversary game since his last goal. A 3-0 win for the good guys that was one of the few bright spots of this depressing season.

We spoke about how growing up in a hockey loving family has influenced his career and life, and how his new film "Goon" is more than just a movie to him.

Jay also talks about his favourite Habs from Bob Gainey to P.K. Subban, and how he feels about the future of the team.

"Goon" hits theaters in North America on Friday, February 24th, 2012.

For more from Jay, you can follow him on twitter @BaruchelNDG and follow his sports tweeting @JBSportsface. The following interview contains coarse language and is suitable for anyone who isn't super sensitive.

And a special thank you to John Leger, friend and tech geek, for supplying the equipment used to record the interview. You can follow him (he's a funny guy, do it) @crosseyed_mofo.
