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.
Toronto was “it” today as some of the star-studded Cast of TAG were in the City promoting the much-buzzed Comedy. Here today were an A-List trio of Jon Hamm (Mad Men, Baby Driver), Jeremy Renner (The Town, Avengers) and Ed Helms (The Hangover, The Office) who star in the Jeff Tomsic Film about a group of five highly-competitive friends who go all-in when it comes to their playing tag, a tradition for them since the first grade. When one of them (Renner) who happens to be undefeated at the game, gets married, the other four look at this as the perfect opportunity to dethrone him – but not without a fight from him! TAG also stars Hannibal Buress, Jake Johnson, Leslie Bibb, Isla Fisher and Rashida Jones.

Hamm, Renner and Helms did the rounds today in a hectic morning which saw them at TV stops like Breakfast Television, CP24 Breakfast, Your Morning, The Morning Show (National Edition), plus also a Facebook Live session. Fans queued the elaborate Red Carpet which lined the perimeter of the lobby at TIFF Bell Lightbox, the Canadian Premiere of TAG. Some lucky contest winners got up close and personal to the Trio of stars who were happy to stop for Autographs and Selfies, much to their delight!
Hamm, Renner and Helms were in great spirits despite a long day already at 2:30 PM, bringing smiles and cheers from the crowd. Contest winners also got to see the Film early, which we’re hearing is “hilarious”! Local Media came out in full force for this the Cast’s last stop on their press tour.
Our Amanda Gilmore (@GilmoreAmanda) will be sharing his Review shortly. Stay tuned.
