#SPOTTED: MARK STRONG + JESSICA CHASTAIN IN TORONTO FILMING “MISS SLOANE”
English Thespian Mark Strong was a late addition to drama Miss Sloane, but a welcome one indeed! We last caught up with the star in 2011 when he visited for the Green Lantern Press Tour. He just last year was voted one of GQ‘s Best Dressed Men of 2015, crediting the late David Bowie as his own style icon. We were thrilled to see him just as gracious as we remember him!
Miss Sloane began filming in Toronto last month and continues to do so through April. Starring Jessica Chastain, the John Madden (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Shakespeare in Love) Film centers on an ambitious lobbyist up against a powerful gun lobby in an attempt to pass gun control legislation. Alison Pill, Michael Stuhlbarg, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Jake Lacy (!!) also star.
A busy man indeed, Strong was just in Los Angeles promoting new Comedy The Brothers Grimsby in which he stars alongside Sacha Baron Cohen and immediately returned to work this week. The crew and cast have been busy working late into the night in Financial District filming interior and exterior scenes.
Strong’s résumé continues to wow with roles in important recent releases like Kingsman: The Secret Service, The Imitation Game and Zero Dark Thirty, the latter reuniting him with Chastain. The two appear to be colleagues at the same firm here as per what we saw. But we’ll know perhaps Awards Season?

We just caught up with Chastain in Los Angeles a couple weeks back at the Independent Spirit Awards. Tired after a long week of filming, she lit it up for the Fans who queued at Santa Monica Pier for a chance to see her. And she didn’t disappoint!
