A has-been rock manager from Van Nuys, California stumbles upon a once-in-a-lifetime voice in a remote Afghan cave in Rock the Kasbah, a dramatic comedy inspired by stranger-than-fiction, real-life events and directed by Oscar winner Barry Levinson. Richie Lanz (Bill Murray), dumped and stranded in war-torn Kabul by his last remaining client (Zooey Deschanel), discovers Salima Khan (Leem Lubany), a Pashtun teenager with a beautiful voice and the courageous dream of becoming the first woman to compete on national television in Afghanistan’s version of “American Idol.” Richie partners with a savvy hooker (Kate Hudson), a pair of hard-partying war profiteers (Danny McBride and Scott Caan) and a hair-trigger mercenary (Bruce Willis) and, braving dangerous cultural prejudices, manages his new protégée into becoming the “Afghan Star.”

VVS Films release ROCK THE KASBAH on Friday, October 23, 2015!
So you might’ve heard I was in New York City this past week enjoying the Met Gala(see the Photos!) and it was an amazing thrill seeing the Fashions and the Celebrity in-person after admiring them online for many years now. Red Carpets and flashing Cameras are something I vow to never get sick of! Promise. Hoping to visit again next Spring!
Although I did get to meet Met Gala Host Rooney Mara in-person and she was lovely to stop and say “hi” and blow me a kiss, unfortunately she didn’t do the Photo but I still will have the memory! One day I’ll have my Gwen Stefani and Anne Hathaway moment! I did get Photos with Jennifer Morrison (Once Upon a Time) and Tommy Hilfigger but unfortunately they just didn’t turn out:(
Fortunately, most of the Celebrities I met were more than obliging and here are some of the Stars I got to get Snap with below. And yes, that is KYLIE MINOGUE!!!! She is just as lovely as I’d dreamed! Ditto for Kelly Ripa!! Armie Hammer too!! And I don’t believe Zooey Deschanel said “yes”! She never does!!
From MuchMusic to the Big Time! Many of us remember Hannah Simone from her days as a VJ on Canada’s Music Television Station, but the Host-turned-Actress now stars on FOX‘s Hit Series The New Girl as Cece Meyers, the gorgeous love interest of Max Greenfield‘s Schmidt. The Role of Cece garnered Simone a Teen Choice Award last year for Choice TV Breakout Star – Female. Although the on-screen Couple affectionately known by Fans as “Schmece” currently are not together, Schmidt definitely still is trying to win Cece‘s affections currently in the second season of the Series.
Simone in addition to being back in Toronto from Los Angeles, is here to talk about New Girl and also Gillette’s Kiss and Tell Social Experiment, spawned from a Survey that showed 39% of Women would kiss more often if a Guy were clean-shaven. She will be appearing at Eaton Centre at 11:00 AM as part of the Festivities, timed perfectly for Valentine’s Day.
In addition to appearing bright and early on KISS 92.5‘s Roz & Mocha Show, Simone looked stunning with her signature bangs, to talk about her appearance later today for the Men’s Grooming Brand. Right after, she head over to City, appearing on multiple feeds of Breakfast Television across the Country.
I caught-up with Simone quickly, although her Handler was quick to decline a Photo Op, being in a rush. Fortunately Simone was amazing as expected, making an exception, visibly not being okay turning a Fan down. “Let’s take a Photo, but it’s gotta be quick as I don’t want to get in trouble!”, she tells me. It’s always great to see one of our own gain success abroad, but even better when you see they still are humble about it!
New Girl airs Tuesday nights at 8:30 PM EST on City.
