Jay Baruchel, a character actor best known for his roles in Tropic Thunder and Knocked Up, is set to bring a character he created — Johnny Klutz, described by The Hollywood Reporter as “a lovable loser impervious to pain” — to theaters. The film will be written by Rob McKittrick (Waiting….), produced by Red Hour’s Ben Stiller, Stuart Cornfeld and Jeremy Kramer, and released by Universal.
