#SPOTTED: BILLY MAGNUSSEN + MACKENZIE MAUZY IN TORONTO FOR “INTO THE WOODS”
The names Billy Magnussen and Mackenzie Mauzy may have you scrambling for the IMDB App on your phone, but come Christmas, millions around the World will fall in love with them. The two Actors are in Toronto for a two-day Press Tour in support of Rob Marshall‘s INTO THE WOODS, which is set to pull-in huge numbers at the Box Office.
Being fresh faces among a v. seasoned and well-recognized Cast surely isn’t an easy challenge, but the Pair who play the Prince and Rapunzel in the Brothers Grimm Pastiche strung together by the Music of Stephen Sondheim, actually are quite great. Fans of the Broadway Music on which this Film Adaptation is based and Movielovers will be delighted by some phenomenal performances by the likes of Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Anna Kendrick, James Corden, Emily Blunt, Chris Pine and several more! And did we mention just how fantastic Streep is as The Witch? Even she flexes some new muscles here!
Mauzy who is most recognized for her work in Soap Operas like The Bold and the Beautiful and Guiding Light gets the opportunity to utilize her theatre chops and excels. Magnussen, whom we met while filming The Divide in Toronto earlier this year, is dashing here and expect big things to come as he appears in Steven Spielberg‘s still-untitled Cold War project starring Tom Hanks.
I caught up with Magnussen and Mauzy on one of their stopoffs, Global Television‘s The Morning Show, where they had a friendly couch chat with Liza Fromer. Despite being in a rush to leave, they still took time out to pose for a quick Photo and Mauzy despite her Handler being clear about her one autograph policy, was giving, signing as she walked her way to her Car.

#FIRSTLOOK: NEW STILLS & TRAILER FROM “INTO THE WOODS”
I’ll always remember INTO THE WOODS as the one Musical I didn’t make the cut for in High School. I bawled my eyes out. Nonethless, I still am excited to see the Feature Adaptation of the popular Musical with Music/Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and directed by Academy Award-winning Rob Marshall.
See these gorgeous brand-new Stills and Teaser Trailer from the Film starring Johnny Depp, Emily Blunt, Billy Magnussen, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Meryl Streep and several more! Its Story intertwines several of our favourite Characters from The Brothers Grimm Fairy Tales, an interest which undoubtely was sparked by the popularity of the Series Once Upon a Time surely.

#SPOTTED: BILLY MAGNUSSEN IN TORONTO FOR “THE DIVIDE”
His name probably doesn’t ring a bell just yet, but Billy Magnussen‘s profile is rising fast. The New York-born Actor/Songwriter/Singer/Guitarist has an extensive background in Theatre, having made his debut on Broadway in 2007. Did I mention he’s a TONY Award Nominee?
Currently in-town filming eagerly-awaited WEtv Series The Divide from among others, Executive Producers Richard LaGravenese (P.S. I Love You, Beautiful Creatures) and Tony Goldwyn (Scandal, Ghost), he is dividing (pardon the pun) his time between here and New York City – where he plays with his Band Reserved for Rondee.
Magnussen has padded his profile with roles on As the World Turns and Indie Darlings like Damsels in Distress and The Brass Teapot, but his Big Break would appear to be a prominent role in upcoming Musical Into the Woods as Rapunzel’s Prince, opposite Mackenzie Mauzy who of course plays, Rapunzel. The Film also stars a few little-known Actors like Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Johnny Depp, Emily Blunt and some Newbie named Meryl Streep.
I spotted the Actor flying back to Toronto tonight and after checking-in with guitar-in-tow, he was amazing to stop for a quick Photo, all smiles. Excited to see what’s next for this Rising Star!
Into the Woods hits theatres via Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures on Christmas Day.
