#SPOTTED: JERRY O’CONNELL IN TORONTO
The best surprises are always the ones you least expect! After spending the weekend in California enjoying Horse Racing’s Championship Day, the Breeders’ Cup at Santa Anita Park, I spotted Funnyman Jerry O’Connell here in Toronto of all places at Queen Station. My Best Friend Fran was out with me at the time, and the timing was perfect since we are huge Mariah Carey Fans (O’Connell starred in her amazing Heartbreaker Video) and we both also love the campy Thriller Obsessed in which he stars as stalked Idris Elba‘s Co-Worker. He could be heard chatting with his Mom on his Cell Phone just as he entered the Station and was gracious to stop for a couple Photos for us Fans.
Many might wonder why the Actor, known best for his work on Series like Sliders, The Defenders and My Secret Identity, is in-town and as announced recently his Wife – Actress Rebecca Romijn – currently is in-town filming TV Pilot King and Maxwell till mid-November. Just down the street from Queen Station, Romijn was hard at work as bright lights lit-up the Financial District during the Night Shoot.
McConnell was seen only recently on NBC Television Movie Mockingbird Lane, which aired before Halloween starring alongside Wife of Ellen DeGeneres – Portia de Rossi – and Eddie Izzard.

#FILMING: REBECCA ROMIJN TORONTO-BOUND FOR “KING AND MAXWELL”
Great news, Toronto! Beautiful Actress/Model (and former Wife of John Stamos) Rebecca Romijn has just been cast in upcoming TNT Pilot, King and Maxwell. Centering around a Pair of former Secret Service Agents who use their skills to fight Criminals. Maxwell (Romijn) is forced to resign from the Secret Service is driven to prove herself once again, while King (Jon Tenney) plays her Counterpart. We can expect some explosive Chemistry between the Duo.
Several parallels already are being drawn between King and Maxwell and Series Moonlighting (1985-1989), which made Bruce Willis a Household Name. This of course isn’t the first time Romijn‘s been here as 2000 Blockbuster X-Men, which had her starring as Mystique, was filmed mostly in-and-around Toronto. That Role since has been taken-over by Jennifer Lawrence.
The Shoot will be fast and furious, taking place in Toronto between November 3-15, 2012. Thanks Michelle for the heads-up!
