Jay Baruchel and Alison Pill seem like a perfect match! Not only are they two Canadians in showbiz, and not only are they both former child actors, but the betrothed couple also share a love for hockey.
And by "love," we mean they are obsessed.
Baruchel, a huge Montreal Canadiens fan, told Habs Eyes on the Prize, "In the past decade, I think I've probably only missed a small, like one-tenth maybe, of all the Habs games that have happened."
And luckily for Baruchel, he won't have to miss any hockey nights to spend time with his fiancée. That's because Pill (best known for portraying Zelda Fitzgerald in Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris") also loves the sport.
"My beautiful fiancée, the love of my life, Alison Pill, is an incredibly passionate Habs fan," Baruchel told the hockey website. "This a girl who, without any of my urging and on her own -- there was no recommendation that I made -- she went and read Ken Dryden's 'The Game' and then the 100 years of the Habs book, one after the other, on her own, in New York, while she was doing her play on Broadway there."
In fact, the couple even met on the set of their new hockey movie, "Goon," which Baruchel wrote.
"Two minutes after meeting her I went to go see my friend Rick, who's my oldest friend in the world, he's in the movie. And I said, 'Ricky, I just met my wife,'" Baruchel remembered.
And their love of hockey -- and each other -- continued off the set and off the ice.
"I'm never prouder of her or more in love with her than when my friends are like, 'Jesus, she really knows her s****. She read the f***ing 'Game'? I'm like, 'yup!'" Baruchel said, adding that his friends frequently comment on how lucky he is for finding Pill. "Like, don't I know it!"
The real question is: Will they have a hockey-themed wedding?
