You might remember Dacre Montgomery from Blockbuster hit POWER RANGERS, but since then he’s gained a lot of popularity also on Netflix‘s Stranger Things in a recurring role as lifeguard Billy Hargrove. The Australian star is in Toronto today promoting Season Three of the hit Series along with The Princess Bride star Cary Elwes and together they are doing the rounds on Television in the City.
We snapped the star arriving at Breakfast Television for a taping and he was amazing to Fans, stopping for everyone. We chat with his Co-Star David Harbour earlier this year and he told us that this Season of Stranger Things is about the “summer of love”. Can’t wait! It streams July 4th!
See this new Trailer for Stranger Things Season Three:

Although we’re at the half-way mark at TIFF ’15, we’re nowhere near done! The Town is set to be electrified at Princess of Wales Theatre as the eagerly-awaited Premiere for BLACK MASS shuts down a portion of Entertainment District with Johnny Depp making his way to the Red Carpet.
See some of the stars we spotted today!
Kevin Bacon. The veteran actor was amazing today at the Press Conference for Black Mass, quite literally stopping for every single Fan in-waiting. There’s a reason why he’s adored and we saw it today.
Dakota Johnson already has been catapulted to stardom in a big way starring in the Film Adaptations of the Fifty Shades of Grey series, but Black Mass is what will solidify her standing as a serious Actress. She was wonderful today stopping for Fans. A huge Fan of hers, I even slipped myself in for a Selfie amidst the commotion!
And of course, who doesn’t love Johnny Depp? After a late arrival, he delivered his promised and went around the lined circle of Friends, stopping for Autographs as security cautiously tossed any clipboards thrust towards his face. The cheers were deafening for the King of Cinema and the reviews are fantastic for his performance as gangster Whitey Bulger in Black Mass.
Joan Allen is fantastic in Thriller, ROOM which premieres Tuesday night TIFF ’15. Here she is at a Press Conference earlier for the Film. Film star Brie Larson unfortunately has been v. private this entire trip not interacting at all with fans. What gives?
AP McCoy. The 20-time champion jockey in the UK, made a rare appearance here in Toronto for the first-ever screening of his BBC Documentary, Being AP. He revealed that he made the Documentary for his two-year-old son who will never know him as a jockey following his retirement earlier this year.
After spotting the Cast of Horizon yesterday out and about, today we met the USA Network Pilot’s most recognizable face, Cary Elwes. The British Thespian over the years has starred in instantly-recognizable Titles like Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Days of Thunder, Saw and of course 1987 Classic, The Princess Bride.
The Series centers around an FBI Secretary (Ruth Bradley) who discovers that her Husband might have been killed in a battle with a Spaceship during World War II. She becomes obsessed with finding the truth, soon becoming the only person standing between Earth and an Alien Invasion. Elwes stars as a mysterious Man who leads a double life during the War, unsure if whether he should follow orders what he feels is right. Horizon films till the end of August.
The Actor who looks v. much like he did 26 years ago, was awesome to stop for Fan Photos outside Starbucks earlier today after heading out for lunch earlier. Make no mistake though, Elwes certainly is no stranger to Toronto after having filmed installments of the massively-successful Saw Franchise here.
Elwes next can be seen in Behaving Badly, an upcoming Comedy which stars Selena Gomez, Heather Graham, Nat Wolff, Elisabeth Shue, Mary-Louise Parker and Jason Lee. He also appears in Sylvester Stallone‘s new Drama Reach Me, out later this year.
Following the great success of their Legal Series Suits, USA Network is now setting its sights on a Sci-Fi Pilot named Horizon, currently in production here in Toronto. The Series centers around an FBI Secretary (Ruth Bradley) who discovers that her Husband might have been killed in a battle with a Spaceship during World War II. She becomes obsessed with finding the truth, soon becoming the only person standing between Earth and an Alien Invasion.
In addition to Bradley who is known for her work on the recent Titanic Mini-Series, Horizon also stars Cary Elwes (The Princess Diaries, Saw) as a Man at odds with himself in doing what is right versus following orders. Meg Steedle (Boardwalk Empire), Josh Braaten (That ’80s Show), Taylor Handley (The O.C.) and Mark Famiglietti (Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines) also will have Principal Roles.
I spotted some of the friendly Stars of Horizon (seen below top to bottom, left to right) including Braaten, Bradley, Handley, Steedle and Famiglietti all out for dinner earlier this evening this Long Weekend. Famiglietti asks me, “What is Civic Day anyway? It seems nobody really even knows what it means!”. And he’s right.
Horizon films in Toronto throughout the month of August.
