#SPOTTED: TONY DANZA AT BURLINGTON PERFORMING ARTS CENTRE
A star of screen and stage, Tony Danza is a beloved American treasure. The People’s Choice Award winner has delighted audiences for years, whether it be his work on Who’s the Boss, Taxi, The Practice or eponymous The Tony Danza Show.
Though he was to star in Mirvish Productions‘ Toronto production of Honeymoon in Vegas in 2012, ultimately that wasn’t to be after a scheduling conflict. We’ve been waiting for his return ever since!
Danza was back in Toronto – or a bit west of it – playing the Burlington Performing Arts Centre last night, his second of two Canadian dates on his Standards and Stories Tour. Playing Ottawa also earlier this week, he delivered about 90 minutes of anecdotes from his storied career and classics by the liked of Bobby Darin and Tony Bennett.
Looking fit, Danza is in great form and was kind to stop for some photos with fans after a Meet & Greet following his Show. He even was asked about his popular namesake racehorse Danza, whose yearlings are just surfacing this year and it’s clear he is an ardent fan of racing! He still is proud of his third-place finish in the Kentucky Derby even after a bad bump!
See our Snap with Billy:
What a dream come true! We spent our childhood wishing he was our dad and that he and Judith Light‘s Angela on Who’s the Boss would wind-up together!
Danza currently can be seen on Netflix Series THE GOOD COP alongside Josh Groban!

#TIFF13: “DON JON” STARRING JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT, SCARLETT JOHANSSON & JULIANNE MOORE
“I was just reading e-mails…”
Joseph Gordon-Levitt tries his hand (pardon the pun) at Acting/Writing and Directing in Don Jon, a Porn Addict from New Jersey who tries finding happiness with a Girl who potentially could be “the one”. Although it wasn’t formally announced at last week’s list of Films to premiere at TIFF ’13, this Comedy was later confirmed by Canadian Distributor Mongrel Media to screen at this year’s Festival.
Don Jon features a superb Cast including Julianne Moore, Scarlett Johansson, Tony Danza and I think we even see a Cameo from Anne Hathaway in there! It is said Gordon-Levitt wrote the part of his Girlfriend specifically for Johansson.
Watch the Trailer below:
Remstar Films releases Don Jon on Friday, September 27, 2013.
