Each day during the Toronto International Film Festival, Notable.ca and Julian Brass will be covering the hottest events and celebrities, brining us from the red carpet to the VIP areas. Keep checking back for more and for the Notable.ca TIFF Party Guide click here.
One of the most talked-about comedies of TIFF 2011 is Michael Dowse's Goon. The film stars Seann William Scott, Liev Schrieber, and Jay Baruchel, who also co-wrote the tale of Canada's national obsession, hockey, and the violence in the sport. After its premiere screening on Saturday, Notable.ca's Julian Brass was on-scene at the after-party at Toronto's Andrew Richard Designs, where the stars were out to celebrate the highly-anticipated flick. We caught up with star and writer Jay Baruchel – he's a Canuck, by the way – to chat about Goon, get a glimpse at how he injects his trademark wit, and what it was like to work with funnyman Seann William Scott.
