#SPOTTED: DAMIAN LEWIS IN TORONTO FOR “RUN THIS TOWN”
He’s the talk of the town! Playing late Toronto Mayor Rob Ford in upcoming Ricky Tollmam Feature RUN THIS TOWN, Primetime Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Damian Lewis has just wrapped production on the highly-buzzed Film.
Run This Town follows a young journalist (Ben Platt), desperate to prove himself, who catches wind of a scandal involving a flashy, unpredictable politician with no filter (Damian Lewis). Political aides (Mena Massoud and Nina Dobrev) attempt to keep their boss in check – and the story under wraps – in order to save their jobs. The Film tells the story of the Millennial generation while spotlighting the power dynamics operating in today’s workplace.
The English Actor known best for his work on Series Billions and Homeland, has been in the City for the past week hard at work filming into the wee hours, generating a lot of conversation about his drastic transformation into the controversial politician.
We are thrilled to have met the incredibly-kind Lewis right before his wrap as he is England-bound.
