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.
In advance of Sunday’s Big Game, see first this new Trailer for TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT.
Synopsis: The Last Knight shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise, and redefines what it means to be a hero. Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Saving our world falls upon the shoulders of an unlikely alliance: Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Sir Anthony Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Laura Haddock).

You already know ’em and love ’em! Handsome and widely-recognizable Stars Josh Duhamel (Vegas, Safe House) and Dean Winters (30 Rock, Oz) are in Toronto today in support of their new Series fron CBS, Battle Creek. Set in the titular Michigan town, the Show is driven by the mismatched pairing of an FBI Agent, Milton Chamberlain (Duhamel) and Detective, Russ Agnew (Winters). Funnymen Kal Penn(Harold & Kumar) and Patton Oswalt (Young Adult) star also.
Both Duhamel and Winters were spotted in unforgivingly cold – no really, it tickles the throat even to talk outside – conditions outside KISS 92.5 Studios this morning, generously taking photos with Fans. The Pair appeared on KISS 92.5‘s The Roz & Mocha Show earlier, before heading over to 98.1 CHFI. Amidst the clamour for new Daddy, Duhamel, I managed to slip right in and get a snap with Winters who was making a rare visit. Surely he’s made you laugh hard as Liz Lemon‘s (Tina Fey) completely oblivious Boyfriend Dennis Duffy on 30 Rock or drawn you in as Ryan O’Reily in Oz?
Duhamel was last in the City for the Canadian Premiere of Safe House February 2013 and we were there too! Yup, he’s still pretty damn alluring.
eOne Films and Mr. Will Wong are thrilled to give Readers a chance to win Double Passes to an Advance Screening in Toronto to SAFE HAVEN. The Screening takes place in Toronto on Monday, February 11, 2013 at Cineplex Yonge & Dundas, 7:00 PM.

Safe Haven is everything. It is suspenseful, romantic and heartwarming at once. eOne Films releases on Valentine’s Day.
The fun just don’t stop! Josh Duhamel and Julianne Hough graced the Red Carpet at Scotiabank Theatre tonight in celebration of Safe Haven, a Romantic Thriller adapted from the bestselling Nicholas Sparks Novel of the same name. Its Story centers on a Woman (Hough) who arrives in Southport, North Carolina with a mysterious past. She meets a Widower (Duhamel) and falls in love with him passionately, only to realize that as their relationship progresses, it becomes increasingly difficult to veil her deepest, darkest Secret.
A large crowd of Fans and Media lined the Red Carpet, the first ever for Alliance Films under the eOne Films Brand, and after just appearing across the road at MuchMusic‘s New.Music.Live, both Stars hurried-over to the Theatre, masking any trace of a super-quick Wardrobe Change. The handsome on-screen Couple wowed Onlookers – Duhamel gorgeous in a gray Suit and and Hough picture-perfect in pink, as the latter’s proud Hair Dresser admired her gorgeous creation, snapping Photos on her iPhone from the side.
Both Stars generously divided their time between Fans (believe me there were any in particular for Duhamel!) and giving quick Interviews to Media. One Autograph Collector tells me, “Duhamel has a photographic memory. He saw me earlier in the day and told me one only, but still was a nice Guy about it!”.
I had the absolute pleasure of fitting in a question each with both Actors and quizzed Duhamel on his Canadian Ancestry and what it is like to be the self-proclaimed, “The 267th Most Interesting Man in the World”. He jokes, “Well, I’ve got a lot of room to move, you know what I mean? There’s only room to move-up!”. Duhamel also breaks-down for me exactly how much a Canadian he actually is. Meanwhile, Hough details for me what inspired her to choose a heavier Role compared to some of the more lighthearted fare we’ve seen her in so far like last year’s Rock of Ages and 2011’s Footloose Remake. An admitted die-hard Sparks Fan, Hough tells me, “I relate to Katie. In my life I tend to be guarded and in my life I tend to find the joy in life, so it definitely makes sense for me to do this.”.
Watch Clips of my Chat with Duhamel and Hough below:
Following tonight’s Premiere, Duhamel and Hough were amazing to spend a bit of time chatting with Fans via a Q&A moderated by KISS 92.5‘s Taylor Kaye, where we learned that a good portion of Safe Haven actually is improvised. Duhamel, who is married to Popstar Fergie, reveals to us also that he had her full blessing on filming love scenes with Hough, as Fergie was all for whatever would make Safe Haven a better Film. Another interesting tidbit is that Hough actually is v. good Friends with the Villain in the Film, played by David Lyons. She commended him for making her feel comfortable enough to tackle some of the Film’s more uncomfortable moments. And before heading out for the night, Duhamel walked right over to me and gave me a high-five. How cool is that?

Our trusty Helper Michelle, was sweet enough to help nab a couple Autographs from the beautiful Hough. To enter to win one, simply click “like” on this Post at Mr. Will Wong on Facebook before February 22, 2013. All are welcome to enter. Good luck!
Safe Haven opens in theatres on Valentine’s Day via eOne Films’ Alliance Films. I admit it, I cried!
And they’ve arrived – safe and sound. Mega-Hotties Josh Duhamel and Julianne Hough arrived quietly into Toronto last night, up and at ’em early for a hectic Press Day for their Romantic Thriller, Safe Haven. The Adaption of the best-selling Novel by Nicholas Sparks is set to open this Valentine’s Day via Entertainment One‘s Alliance Films in Canada. The Film centers on Katie (Hough), a Woman who arrives in Southport, North Carolina, falling in love with Widower (Duhamel), which forces her to confront her dark, mysterious past.
Duhamel and Hough who looked a picture-perfect Duo together, appeared at KISS 92.5‘s Roz & Mocha Show (listen here) earlier today, before stopping-off at City‘s Breakfast Television (watch here), before completing a morning Trifecta capped-off at CP24 Breakfast (watch here). The Actors will be doing an afternoon of Press out of their Hotel, before appearing on an action-packed New.Music.Live at MuchMusic, which also will see Warm Bodies Stars Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer. A Star-filled Day in the City indeed.
I caught-up with the Stars as they arrived for their Breakfast Television appearance this morning and they both were gracious to Fans stopping to sign Autographs and snap Photos despite being in a crazy rush to their next destination. The Festivities continue at Scotiabank Theatre tonight where the Canadian Premiere of Safe Haven takes place, as Duhamel and Hough walk the Red Carpet. We’ll be there, so stay tuned for our Interview!

Toronto hasn’t seen this much action since TIFF! Next Monday will be a day of epic proportions as the Stars descend upon the City for two of February’s most anticipated Films. I’ve been super-excited about 50/50 Director Jonathan Levine‘s Warm Bodies for quite some time now and the Adaptation of the Isaac Marion Zombie Novel will see both Nicholas Hoult (About a Boy) and Teresa Palmer (I Am Number Four) here Monday, January 21, 2013. The Duo will be at MuchMusic‘s New.Music.Live to promote the February 1, 2013 release for eOne Films. Frozen Yogurt Chain Yogurty’s is giving away Prize Packs and Passes to a Private Screening. Details here.
If that weren’t exciting enough, equally-Hotties Josh Duhamel (Win a Date with Tad Hamilton) and Julianne Hough (Rock of Ages) will be promoting Safe Haven that same day and they are expected to walk the Red Carpet for the Canadian Premiere of the Romantic-Thriller later that night. The Adaptation of the Bestselling Nicholas Sparks Novel also will see the two Actors doing a round of Press earlier in the day in support of the February 14, 2013 release for Entertainment One‘s Alliance Films. Tickets for the Premiere will be made available via KISS 92.5 and also the Alliance Films Facebook Page.
I had the pleasure of meeting both Leading Ladies, Palmer and Hough, back in 2011 and they are both as gracious and lovely as they appear. We are blessed to host them once again and without a doubt, both Films are expected to perform massively.
