We loved him so much in Academy Award-winning Best Picture MOONLIGHT and have been waiting ever since for him to come back! Andre Holland finally returns to Toronto and currently is working on Apple TV+ Series THE BIG CIGAR, directed by Don Cheadle.
Holland gained widespread accolades for his performances as the grown-up KevinJones in MOONLIGHT, Andrew Young in Ava DuVernay‘s SELMA, Rebecca Hall‘s PASSING and also starred in AmericanHorror Story: ROANOKE as Matt Miller. All the while, he has been busy at work on-stage on and off Broadway. And now this deserved starring role as Huey P. Newton in the Biographical Series about the Black Panther Party’s leader and his attempt to escape to Cuba.
So happy I finally got to meet him Holland who was out and about for a stroll. MOONLIGHT is definitely one of my favourite Films of the last ten years, so this means a lot to me.
We are thrilled to give our Readers a chance to win a SPACE JAM: A NEW LEGACY Prize Pack, which includes a pass to see the Movie!
Welcome to the Jam! Basketball champion and global icon LeBron James goes on an epic adventure alongside timeless Tune Bugs Bunny with the animated/live-action event “Space Jam: A New Legacy,” from director Malcolm D. Lee and an innovative filmmaking team including Ryan Coogler and Maverick Carter. This transformational journey is a manic mashup of two worlds that reveals just how far some parents will go to connect with their kids. When LeBron and his young son Dom are trapped in a digital space by a rogue A.I., LeBron must get them home safe by leading Bugs, Lola Bunny and the whole gang of notoriously undisciplined Looney Tunes to victory over the A.I.’s digitized champions on the court: a powered-up roster of profes-sional basketball stars as you’ve never seen them before. It’s Tunes versus Goons in the high-est-stakes challenge of his life, that will redefine LeBron’s bond with his son and shine a light on the power of being yourself. The ready-for-action Tunes destroy convention, supercharge their unique talents and surprise even “King” James by playing the game their own way.
James stars alongside Oscar nominee Don Cheadle (the “Avengers” films, “Hotel Rwanda”), Khris Davis (“Judas and the Black Messiah,” TV’s “Atlanta”), Sonequa Martin-Green (TV’s “The Walking Dead,” “Star Trek: Discovery”), newcomer Cedric Joe, Jeff Bergman (“Looney Tunes Cartoons”), Eric Bauza (“Looney Tunes Cartoons”), and Zendaya (upcoming “Dune,” “Malcolm & Marie”).

Toronto truly got a treat tonight as Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Canada hosted a special Advance Screening of Iron Man 3! Held at Cineplex Odeon – Yonge & Dundas, the most Die-Hard of Fans were gifted with Limited Edition Iron Man 3-D Glasses and Cardboard Do-It-Yourself-Iron Men. Memorabilia also was fully on-display at the Event and an Actor even came dressed as Iron Man ringing-in the festivities. More importantly however, tonight’s Audience had the pleasure of seeing Academy Award Nominee Don Cheadle in-person. The Actor plays the important role of War Machine/Colonel James Rhodes, also known as Iron Man/Tony Stark‘s (Robert Downey Jr.) Right-Hand Man in the Franchise.
After a busy day of Press, a Dressy-Casual Cheadle in jeans, a vest and tie, punctually walked the Red Carpet tonight, meeting a crowded mix of TV, Online and Radio Media. Two lucky Fans even got to pose with their Idol on the Red Carpet after winning a Contest, securing a rare Photo Op!
I had the pleasure of chatting with Cheadle quickly about his experience working closely with Downey and he had nothing but the highest praise of praise for the Franchise Star.“I think we just both got along working with each other”, he says. “There’s a mutual respect there and we appreciate the job we’re doing and obviously Robert is carrying the Lion’s Share of the Franchise for everybody, so it’s really daunting and you want to support him in the best way. So it’s nice that you feel that you have a lane and he provides that. “.
After previewing this third Installment, Fans certainly will not be disappointed with Writer/Director Shane Black‘s witty comedic sense and the Ladies will swoon even more for Downey as his love for Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow)gets tested like never before with the surfacing of destructive and villainous Dr. Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce) and The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley).

With just about a month and a half to go to release date, this brand new Character Poster for Iron Man 3 has surfaced, capturing all the intensity and Drama of the Blockbuster in one. This version merges previously seen individual character posters of all Principals in the Film: Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), Mandarin (Ben Kingsley), Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce) and James Rhodes (Don Cheadle). By far my favourite of the bunch so far!
