* ActorAllusion: His characters like to fly away at the ends of movies - ''Film/TheSorcerersApprentice'', ''Film/ShesOutOfMyLeague'',''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' and [[spoiler:''Film/ThisIsTheEnd'']].

* TallDarkAndHandsome: The third might be subjective, but in many of his films he is viewed as attractive by other characters. But Baruchel is not entirely sure or even aware of it himself.

* AsHimself: In Film/ThisIsTheEnd



* TheDanza: Like the rest of Ben Stone's (Seth Rogen) friends in ''Film/KnockedUp'', his character shares the same first name as the actor playing him.
* DawsonCasting: Quite frequently, with the most notable example being ''Film/TheTrotsky'', when a then-28 Baruchel played a 17-year-old. To be fair, [[OlderThanTheyLook he doesn't look]] anywhere near his early 30's.



* EnforcedMethodActing: Is terrified of roller coasters and was not going to initially partake in riding one for the opening sequence of ''Film/KnockedUp''. When another cast member was running late, Judd Apatow convinced Baruchel to ride it just once to get a take in (which made it into the film; his character's panicked "I WANNA GET OFF! I WANNA GET OFF!"? Not in character at all, that's him legitimately wigging out.)



* PlayingAgainstType: Plays a mentally-disabled redneck in ''Film/MillionDollarBaby''.

In case you are interested: He is agnostic, supports the Montreal Canadiens, is 6 feet tall, and his last name is pronounced with a soft sh- sound like shell.

shell (so it's "Baru-shell," not "Baru-kel" or "Baru-chell").
