TORONTO, CANADA. After a morning spent slipping and falling, for comedic effect, on the ice of a suburban hockey rink, "Man Seeking Woman" star Jay Baruchel is eager to talk about his new FXX romantic comedy.
The Powers That Be, however, are not cooperating.
We're in a small Baptist church that has had its basement retrofitted into a "Man Seeking Woman" production hub and, at the moment, a high-profile guest star who I can't currently reveal is shooting in front of a green-screen in the room next door. A door is closed, but Baruchel is excited about his first regular TV series gig in nearly a decade and a stern AD keeps peeking in to "shush" the source of loud vocalizations, ignoring that the noise is coming from the guy who's first on the call-sheet.
