We definitely didn’t sleep much last night and now we’re up and at it again!
After spotting him out and about last night, Colin Hanks was up and at ’em early this morning doing a Photo Call for his TIFF ’13 Film, Parkland in which he stars as one of the Doctors responsible for trying to save President John F. Kennedy. Not much Fan love though today as he was quick to throw a handwave and go. Saving it for the Red Carpet tonight perhaps?
Canadian Actor Ben Cotton was all smiles walking over to his Photo Call for Family Drama Cinemanovels, debuting tonight at Scotiabank Theatre.
Jennifer Beals certainly hasn’t aged one bit since her Flashdance days. She stars in Cinemanovels, which premieres tonight and was gracious to stop to sign some Autographs for Fans, wishing them a great day.
Canadian Beauty Lauren Lee Smith stopped to chat with Fans before arriving at a Photo Call for Cinemanovels, premiering tonight at TIFF ’13, sporting an amazing new Haircut.
Double Academy Award-Nominee Jacki Weaver just might get another nomination for her intense performance in Parkland, starring as the Mother of JFK‘s Killer, Lee Harvey Oswald. Here she is arriving at her Photo Call.
Zac Efron without fail always draws screams wherever he goes and such was the case as he surprised at a Photo Call for Parkland, premiering tonight at TIFF ’13. Efron plays a Doctor in charge of saving the late JFK‘s life and he was great to stop to sign some Autographs for Fans after promising to do so after a rushed arrival.
Funnywoman Kristen Wiig always brings a smile to our faces, and did just that today arriving at the Premiere for her latest Film Loveship Hateship at the Princess of Wales Theatre. What a Beauty! Too bad she missed half of the Fans who lined-up hours to meet her when signing Autographs.
Sami Gayle might seem an unfamiliar face, but the Blue Bloods Star surely appears to be developing quite a Fan Base judging by the cheers and screams for her as she arrived on the Red Carpet for the Premiere of Loveship Hateship. She was lovely to make time for many of her Fans, crossing the road amidst Street Car Traffic to greet them.
The breathtakingly beautiful Nicole Kidman presented her latest Film, The Railway Man starring Colin Firth tonight at Roy Thomson Hall and after the Premiere, we caught up with the Oscar Winner at her Afterparty where she basically made my dreams come true by taking a Photo with me and my Buddy Christine. She’s even more tall and elegant in person. Goddess.
The Man of the Hour certainly is Director Jason Reitman who has created somewhat of a new Tradition at TIFF with his Live Readings with All-Star Casts of some of our favourite Films. Last year it was American Beauty, this year it is Boogie Nights. Held at Ryerson Theatre tonight, Reitman managed to nab the likes of Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning, Josh Brolin, Olivia Wilde, Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde, to participate in the Reading. Reitman is represented at TIFF ’13 with Labor Day which already is garnering major Awards Buzz.
Like Father, like Son. Ivan Reitman came out to support his Son’s Boogie Nights Reading at Ryerson Theatre. Known best for his Films including Ghostbusters, Hitchcock and Kindergarten Cop, it’s great to see a Filmmaker as accomplished as him still make time for his younger Fans.
Funnyman Dane Cook was a late addition to Jason Reitman‘s Boogie Nights Live Reading and his Fans were given a rare chance to interact with the Star of Disney‘s Planes. He is an absolute pleasure to see in person, Fan-friendly, while some of the others were quick to leave and disregard Fans.
Few can complain that Josh Brolin is a great sport. The Star of Labor Day, which premieres tomorrow night at Ryerson Theatre, he partook in Jason Reitman‘s Boogie Nights Live Read, reuniting him once again with the Director. Despite signing-up a storm of Autographs for Fans on his way into the Screening, he equally was amazing on his way out. He looks amazing, don’t you agree?

One of the most eagerly-awaited Films to debut at TIFF ’13 is Peter Landesman‘s Parkland.

This Film follows a handful of individuals forced to make split-second decisions after an event that would change their lives and forever alter the world’s landscape.
Parkland stars Paul Giamatti, Billy Bob Thornton, Colin Hanks, James Badge Dale, Jacki Weaver, Zac Efron and Marcia Gay Harden.
Watch the riveting Trailer below:
Remstar Films releases Parkland in Toronto on Friday, October 4, 2013 with additional cities to follow. You have two opportunities to see Parkland at TIFF ’13:
Friday, September 6, 2013 at 9:30 PM – ROY THOMSON HALL Sunday, September 8, 2013 12:30 PM – WINTER GARDEN THEATRE
His Career couldn’t be any hotter right now! Yes, that’s James Badge Dale, known also as Badgett Dale, whom those of us who grew-up in the early ’90s will remember him from Boys-turned-Savages Thriller, Lord of the Flies. After a bit of a hiatus which saw him focus on Hockey, fate could not be avoided as his Star would rise once again with successive Blockbusters lined one right after the other.
Although he’s in town to promote Gore Verbinski‘s The Lone Ranger which has him starring as Ranger Dan Reid alongside Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp, he also has a little Zombie/Apocalypse Movie called World War Z coming out this weekend. That Film is expected to debut huge with Brad Pitt front-and-center, going head-to-head with Disney Heavyweight in Monsters University. And did I mention the record-breaking success of Iron Man 3, in which Dale stars as the villainous Savin?
The Actor arrived at KISS 92.5 Studios super-early this morning, casual in a Button-Down, Jeans and Toque, bringing some of that effortless New York City Style to our City. Although strapped for time, he still made time to stop for a Photo, heading right over after greeting Roz & Mocha Show Producer, Maurie Sherman. Shortly after, he head over to City‘s Breakfast Television to chat with Jennifer Valentyne, singing the praises of Co-Star Johnny Depp stating that The Lone Ranger will be a complete surprise for Moviegoers.
A busy day of Press is scheduled ahead for Dale in advance of the Wednesday, July 5, 2013 release of The Lone Ranger from Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
Dale can next be seen in Parkland, produced by Tom Hanks, about the Events of Parkland Hospital the day John F. Kennedy was assassinated. Colin Hanks who also stars in that Film, also currently is in town filming RomCom, No Stranger Than Love.
In town starring in upcoming Nick Wernham RomCom,No Stranger than Love, Colin Hanks is turning heads around the City with that familiar face of his. The Son of Tom, who himself has built a pretty impressive Résumé thus far including Orange County, The House Bunny, W. and King Kong. Hanks arrived in Toronto the other night and like his Co-Star AlisonBrie (Community), whom we met back in February, he has been out enjoying the City. Although on the Series at different times, both Actors have appeared on AMC‘s hit Drama Mad Men.
Official Synopsis below:
NO STRANGER THAN LOVE follows Lucy Sherrington (Brie), a heart-breakingly attractive High Sschool art teacher in the small, secluded village of Spot Valley, where there is not a male in town who is not secretly or openly in love with her. And who can blame them? She is kind to everyone, and helplessly sympathetic, yet romantically she keeps them all at a polite distance…until tonight. Tonight she has agreed to a rendezvous with Clint Coburn (Hanks), the married High School Football Coach who’s been on a lustful quest in Lucy’s direction for the last five years. Just as they are about to begin their affair, Clint disappears down a hole that opens up in Lucy’s living room floor. But this is not just any hole. It is an inter-dimensional, one-way hole of infinite darkness that leaves Clint stranded and floating in oblivion.
Our Sources tell us Hanks was seen at Hey Lucy Cafe this weekend on King Street, an area where Kit Harington and Rachel McAdams also were seen Friday night! After heading-out with some Friends tonight for Dinner on the recommendation of a Staffer at his Hotel, the Actor was out for a bit of a break, stopping to pose for Photos graciously.
Hanks next can be seen in Parkland this Fall, a Drama set around Dallas’ Parkland Hospital on the day JFK was assassinated. Zac Efron, James Badge Dale, Jacki Weaver, Billy Bob Thornton, Paul Giamatti, Jackie Earle Haley and more star, while Tom Hanks produces.
