Mark Millar and Frank Quitely‘s Comics JUPITER’S LEGACY gets the Netflix treatment and has been filmimg around Toronto since late June. The Series starring Josh Duhamel as leader Sheldon Sampson, centers on the original generation of superheroes who surface in the 1930s. Their descendants in the modern day however have a difficult time filling the shoes of their ancestors. Filming through November, the Series also stars Leslie Bibb, Elena Kampouris, Andrew Horton and Ben Daniels.
We spotted Duhamel working hard in his costume in this humidity and he was seen even last weekend filming in record temperatures. Today he was filming a scene on the streets amidst some wreckage, squaring-off with a female villain. Showing support was his proud son Axl Jack (son of Fergie) who during filming breaks would run up to see his dad, tagging along with him at the end of the day as he removed makeup and costume.
Duhamel was great to stop for photos with Fans after a long day, fresh-faced and out of wardrobe! We also spotted Co-Star Andrew Horton, (seen below) who plays his on-screen son Gordon Sampson.
Busy, busy! Toronto continues to be bustling with starpower as several stars continue their latest projects and some approach a wrap!
LET IT SNOW
Kiernan Shipka (The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Mad Men) had some fun at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards this weekend, enjoying a break from the cold! She even got slimed, but she assures us it was easy to wash off! She returns to complete work on Netflix‘s LET IT SNOW. She is the sweetest!
Model and Actor Matthew Noszka (Star) made his way back to the City along with Shipka too to complete work on the Holiday Feature! He equally was in great spirits too!
We spotted Isabela Moner, who stars as Dora in upcoming DORA AND THE LOST CITY OF GOLD returning also from the Kids’ Choice Awards with her dog Pluto. As always she’s the sweetest. Her dog is so social and friendly, always curious when he sees other playmates! We’re curious about new Music from Moner which she has been at work on in Miami, as we love what we’ve heard on Spotify so far.
And Anna Akana got lots of acclaim for her upcoming Film GO BACK TO CHINA at SXSW, the Singer and Actress also was spotted getting ready to wrap on LET IT SNOW!
Netflix‘s Figure Skating Series SPINNING OUT also continues to film and we’re totally waiting for recent cast addition, the delightfully-funny Jonathan Van Ness of Queer Eye, who was added recently!
We are thrilled to have spotted Sarah Wright(The House Bunny, Mad Men) around with her baby and nanny! She was everything I thought she would be! Sweetheart.
Coincidentally, Glamorous singer Fergie was just in town too last week! We spotted the stunning Eva Longoria hard at work after working through the weekend on her directorial debut, GLAMOROUS. The CW Pilot stars Ben Pierce as a gender non-conforming teen who lands a job with a cosmetic company after panning their products on the Internet. Longoria was amazing as we remember her, and she expressed excitement seeing someone bring a still to sign from upcoming Dora The Explorer, in which she stars. The Film’s star Isabela Moner just was in the City filming LET IT SNOW also!
Eight-time Grammy winner Fergie is in town to spread a little Fergaliciousness to Toronto. The former The Black Eyed Peas Vocalist and successful Solo Artist rang-in her latest collection from her Fergalicious women’s shoe line sold at The Hudson’s Bay Co.
Appearing at a Meet-and-Greet at the flagship Queen Street location, she met with fans, posing for photos and offering hugs for all their ardent support.
Fergie‘s collection offers versatility and style with several options which fit day and night, herself donning a pair at the event hosted by Liz Trinnear.
In addition to being a big annual fixture in New York for the past couple years, iHeartRadio‘s Jingle Ball also has become the ultimate music event to take place in Toronto kicking-off the Holidays. More star-studded than ever, this year’s edition was headlined by the likes of Backstreet Boys, Kelly Clarkson, Fergie, Fifth Harmony, Noah Cyrus, Cardi B, Post Malone and several more! In addition to musical guests, presenters also included Camren Bicondova (Gotham), Patrick Schwarzenegger (Midnight Sun), Tom Ellis (Lucifer), Shay Mitchell (Pretty Little Liars) and supermodel Hailey Baldwin.
Running in tandem at its venue Air Canada Centre, the annual CP24 CHUM CHRISTMAS WISH TOY DRIVE took place, doing a bit of good for the community in addition to all its dazzle.
We caught-up with some of the stars in-town for the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball.
At long last! We’ve been wondering about where Fergie went and with marriage and childbearing to blame (how absolutely unacceptable! jk!) and before the end of 2014 it looks like we are getting one of our biggest Pop Music wishes, a return of The Duchess!! The globetrotting Track gives love to Cities around the World well, because basically The Duchess is adored all around the World, naturally.
The Songstress, who now goes credited as Fergie Duhamel, teams with Dijon McFarlane (DJ Mustard), Shomari Wilson, Royce Thomas Theron Thomas on the Track which sounds more like a warm-up to things to come, now that we’re complaining. We’re just happy to hear new Music. We LOVED her 2006 Solo Debut, so this is a bit of a victory for us.
Check-out L.A.LOVE (la la) below:
The Track is now available on iTunes. Download here.
