Making his second visit to a blisteringly-cold Toronto in just under a year, Actor Geoff Stults is back for his latest Film, 12 STRONG. He is known best for his work on Grace and Frankie, 7th Heaven, The Finder (Co-Star Maddie Hasson also is in town filming) and last year’s juicy Thriller Unforgettable in which he starred alongside Rosario Dawson and Katherine Heigl.
Busy doing the TV circuit in Los Angeles last week in support of 12 Strong, Stults toughs the polar opposite temperatures locally armed with earmuffs. He was amazing to stop for a quick Snap leaving CITY’S Breakfast Television where he got to cuddle with an adorable dog, before continuing his day of interviews which also sees him return to Global’s The Morning Show.
The Drama centers on a Special Forces Team assigned to take down the Taliban under a new captain, post-9/11. They must however, work together with an Afghan warlord to accomplish the mission. Michael Shannon, Austin Stowell, Michael Peña, Trevante Rhodes, William Fichtner, along with real-life couple Elsa Pataky and Chris Hemsworth, also star.

Warner Bros. Pictures Canada x Mr. Will want to give Readers a chance to win Run-of-Engagement Pass to see 12 STRONG starring Chris Hemsworth.
Synopsis: Chris Hemsworth and Oscar nominee, Michael Shannon, star in 12 STRONG, a powerful new war drama from Alcon Entertainment, Black Label Media and Jerry Bruckheimer Films.
Set in the harrowing days following 9/11, a U.S. Special Forces team, led by their new Captain, Mitch Nelson (Chris Hemsworth), is chosen to be the first U.S. troops sent into Afghanistan for an extremely dangerous mission. There, in the rugged mountains, they must convince Northern Alliance General Dostum (Navid Negahban) to join forces with them to fight their common adversary: the Taliban and their AlQaeda allies. In addition to overcoming mutual distrust and a vast cultural divide, the Americans—accustomed to state-of-the-art warfare—must adopt the rudimentary tactics of the Afghani horse soldiers. But despite their uneasy bond, the new allies face overwhelming odds: outnumbered and outgunned by a ruthless enemy that does not take prisoners.
Directed by Nicolai Fuglsig and based on the acclaimed “Horse Soldiers” book by best-selling author Doug Stanton, 12 STRONG also stars Michael Peña, Navid Negahban, Trevante Rhodes, Geoff Stults, Thad Luckinbill, Austin Stowell, Ben O’Toole, Austin Hebert, Kenneth Miller, Kenny Sheard, Jack Kesy, Laith Nakli, Fahim Fazli, Yousuf Azami, Said Taghmaoui, Elsa Pataky, William Fichtner and Rob Riggle.
