After giving us quite a few classic supporting roles, Jay Baruchel is prepping to make a serious name for himself when he takes the title role in Walt Disney Pictures' The Sorcerer's Apprentice.
Jay Baruchel for The Sorcerer's Apprentice
Baruchel is in final talks to play the apprentice to Nicolas Cage, who plays the sorcerer in The Sorcerer's Apprentice. If you work that out, you might discover that Baruchel is being a offered a starring role here.
With Jon Turteltaub directing and Jerry Bruckheimer producing, The Sorcerer's Apprentice takes place in contemporary New York, where a wizard searches for an apprentice. Sadly, that is just about all we know about the production at the moment.
For those of you who only recognize Baruchel, expect him to soon become a household name. The actor will next appear in the romantic comedy She's Out of My League and is also attached to co-star with a thinning Seth Rogen in Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse.
