Jay Baruchel, who visited here about a year ago, returns to talk about his latest project, We're All Gonna Die (Even Jay Baruchel). The six-episode docu-series premiered April 30 on Crave and can be streamed now on demand.
The 40-year-old actor-director-filmmaker returns to his roots, going way back to his teen years when he was a correspondent for Popular Mechanics for Kids. Here he's on a quest to investigate various end-of-the-world scenarios, including an asteroid Armageddon; a nuclear catastrophe; a pandemic pandemonium; an alien invasion; a volcanic cataclysm; and a climate apocalypse.
This episode includes clips from the series plus a shorter-than-usual chat with Jay, who is hella busy. Besides his recent hosting duties on LOL: Last One Laughing Canada, Baruchel was in St. John's directing episodes of Mark Critch's CBC series Son of a Critch. He can also be seen in the new Kids in the Hall series, coming up mid-May on Amazon Prime Video.
