Jay Baruchel & Hiccup
What more fitting than to receive a Year of the Dragon greeting (below) than from our favourite Viking/Dragon Trainer himself, Jay Baruchel? The Montreal-born Actor known best for voicing Hiccup in How to Train Your Dragon currently is in Niagara Falls filming Jonathan Sobol's Comedy The Black Marks alongside Kurt Russell and Matt Dillon. Canadian Cast Mates Chris Diamantopoulos and Katheryn Winnick have confirmed to me directly via Twitter that the shoots will at some point be coming to Toronto. How exciting!

Baruchel will have a busy Year of the Dragon indeed, with multiple Films on-the-go.  Hockey Comedy Goon will be out February 24, 2012 via Alliance Films in Canada, before David Cronenberg's Cosmpolis hits theatres later this year. He soon will begin work also on Comedy The Apocalypse alongside James Franco and Seth Rogen, and also he will be reprising the role of Hiccup once again in How to Train Your Dragon 2.
