One of his first major acting roles was on local television series My Hometown in 1996. From 1997–1998, he co-hosted Popular Mechanics for Kids with Elisha Cuthbert. After appearing briefly in Cameron Crowe's Oscar-winning Almost Famous, Baruchel won the role of Steven Karp on Judd Apatow's acclaimed yet short-lived television series Undeclared, where he starred alongside Seth Rogen, Carla Gallo, Charlie Hunnam, and Monica Keena. He then appeared with James Van Der Beek in Roger Avary's The Rules of Attraction.
In 2004, he played boxing hopeful Danger Barch in Clint Eastwood's Million Dollar Baby, which received an Oscar for Best Picture the following year. Baruchel was among those thanked by Eastwood during his acceptance speech.
He then starred in Nemesis Game and Fetching Cody before appearing opposite Don Johnson on the WB's Just Legal in 2005 and guest-starring on CBS's Emmy Award-nominated Numb3rs in 2006.
Baruchel appeared in the films Knocked Up (which reunited him with Judd Apatow, Jason Segel, and Seth Rogen), I'm Reed Fish, and Just Buried and the Ben Stiller-directed Tropic Thunder alongside Jack Black, Nick Nolte, Steve Coogan and Robert Downey Jr. He co-starred with Seth Rogen in the 2007 pre-pre-production trailer Jay and Seth vs. The Apocalypse, a film created by Rogen and Evan Goldberg as a strategy to garner interest and funding. In 2008, he appeared in Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist.
He starred in the 2010 film She's Out of My League (co-starring Alice Eve), and will appear in How to Train Your Dragon and a live-action Disney adaptation of The Sorcerer's Apprentice. He is developing a screenplay, The Goon, with Evan Goldberg, and will play Johnny Klutz, a character of his own creation, in a film of the same name. Baruchel will also star in and direct the comedy/horror/slasher film Pig.
