#SPOTTED: JOEL KINNAMAN IN TORONTO FOR “ROBOCOP”
Meet your new RoboCop. Swedish/American Actor and Model Joel Kinnaman might be a familiar face – especially if you’ve visited an H&M of late – but he v. much is on his way to becoming Hollywood’s Next “It” Boy. Currently in Toronto filming José Padilha‘s Remake of RoboCop, Kinnaman has kept a low profile since arriving in the City a month ago.
Just last year, he appeared in David Fincher‘s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and he is known for his work in acclaimed Swedish Thriller Easy Money, which opened here in limited release late August. TV Audiences know him for his work in AMC‘s now-defunct The Killing, which Fox Television Studios currently is in talks to renew for a third season on alternative networks.
Carrying a copy of Christopher Hitchens’ Mortality in-hand during a chilly filming break today University of Toronto-ish, Kinnaman was nice enough to stop to greet a small number of Fans. A Stills Photographer even captured the moment also! The $100-million Blockbuster from Sony Pictures features an impressive Cast including: Abbie Cornish, Gary Oldman, Jackie Earle Haley, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Keaton and Jay Baruchel. Due for an August 2013 release, RoboCop films in Toronto up till January 2013.
The charming Kinnaman can be seen next in Auteur Filmmaker Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups alongside Natalie Portman, Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Isabel Lucas and Joe Manganiello.
