Jay Baruchel returns to the small screen in 2015

Yet another performance of Canadian actor and comedian Jay Baruchel is amassing high praise and fan attention. He's the voice of Hiccup in the How to Train Your Dragon franchise, has had roles in numerous works alongside longtime friend Seth Rogen, and will return to the small screen in 2015 for a 10- episode comedy series called Man Seeking Woman.

Based on The Last Girlfriend on Earth, a book of short stories written by Simon Rich of Saturday Night Live, the series is described as a "sweet and absurd look at the surreal life and death stakes of dating." The pilot episode shot in Toronto and executive produced by Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels is scheduled to air in the US and presumably in Canada as well on FXX and FXX Canada.

Baruchel has had quite the year in 2014 starring thus far in the Robocop reboot and lending his voice once again to Hiccup in the recently released Dragon sequel.
