Known For: Supporting roles in big-screen comedies like "Knocked Up" and "Tropic Thunder" and lead roles in TV series including Judd Apatow's "Undeclared" and the short-lived WB courtroom dramedy "Just Legal."
In His Favor: Baruchel's burgeoning stardom has been bubbling just under the surface for awhile now, and he's got a flair for comedy, a necessary component for evincing Solo's sarcastic wit.
Against Him: With his ultra-lanky frame and awkward on-screen/public persona, Baruchel doesn't exactly scream "action hero."
