#SPOTTED: ADAM SANDLER, PETER DINKLAGE & JOSH GAD IN TORONTO FILMING “PIXELS”
If you’ve been in downtown Toronto this past week, chances are at some point you’ve noticed a massive overhaul of our Financial District, in what now eerily resembles New York City. Heads have turned and confusion was had as Broad Street signs and Wall Street Subway Entrances surfaced before the eyes of unsuspecting Torontonians bound for another day at work. The reason for all the commotion of course is Director Chris Columbus’ (Home Alone) latest endeavour, Pixels which sees Experts enlisted to help save New York City from an attack of ’80s Video Game Characters!
The Action/Fantasy/Comedy stars an eclectic and talented Cast including Adam Sandler, who currently can be seen on-screen in Rom-Com, Blended. Game of Thrones’ Peter Dinklage also stars, sporting an awesome Mullet, as does Kevin James (The King of Queens) and Josh Gad (Frozen). Sandler, Dinklage and Gad were spotted filming a chaotic scene tonight involving several ambulances and police cars. Sandler was kind to take a moment to say “hi” to Fans at Starbucks, occasionally stopping to play with his adorable two Daughters Sadie and Sunny.
We spotted Sandler earlier after a quick game of Basketball with his Buddies, before heading out for a long night of shooting. We’ve met him once before and had a happy memory of that moment and are glad that things haven’t changed. Sandler truly is the Real Deal and the same lovable guy we see on-screen. During his stay so far, he’s been spotted bringing his Girls out to see the National Ballet of Canada’s Production of Cinderella and this weekend he was seen dining at Sassafraz. A source also reports a rare sight of Sandler and Dinklage goofing around outside of Whole Foods!
