#SPOTTED: REBECCA ROMIJN & JON TENNEY IN TORONTO FOR “KING AND MAXWELL”
After having filmed its Pilot in Toronto last Fall, King & Maxwell soon gets its introduction to Canada premiering later this week on Showcase. Its two Stars Rebecca Romijn (Michelle Maxwell) and Jon Tenney (Sean King) are in the City today promoting the TNT Series centering on two disgraced former Secret Service Agents who solve crimes privately as Private Detectives.
Beginning with an appearance on KISS 92.5‘s The Roz & Mocha Show both Actors looking impeccable, were all smiles greeting Fans upon arrival, kindly taking their time to stop to pose with Fans before later heading to Global Television’s The Morning Show (National Edition). On the latter, Tenney describes the Series’ two main Characters, stating “I’m a Man of Words, she’s a Woman of Action”. The Duo electrified during a Chemistry Read together, him getting cast first and her next. Romijn praises her Co-Star for being wonderful to work with, revealing that he quickly has become her Childrens’ favourite person. “I think they like him (Tenney) more than they like cake.”, she jokes. On the most challenging thing about filming the Series, both Stars recall long 18-19 hour work days. “Working out-of-town away from the Family, that’s definitely the hardest thing”, admits Tenney.
Last Fall we were lucky enough to run into Romijn‘s Husband, Jerry O’Connell out and about while she was filming. More on that here.
King & Maxwell airs Thursday, August 22, 2013 on Showcase in Canada at at 10:00 PM EST. More details on that here.

#SPOTTED: JERRY O’CONNELL IN TORONTO
The best surprises are always the ones you least expect! After spending the weekend in California enjoying Horse Racing’s Championship Day, the Breeders’ Cup at Santa Anita Park, I spotted Funnyman Jerry O’Connell here in Toronto of all places at Queen Station. My Best Friend Fran was out with me at the time, and the timing was perfect since we are huge Mariah Carey Fans (O’Connell starred in her amazing Heartbreaker Video) and we both also love the campy Thriller Obsessed in which he stars as stalked Idris Elba‘s Co-Worker. He could be heard chatting with his Mom on his Cell Phone just as he entered the Station and was gracious to stop for a couple Photos for us Fans.
Many might wonder why the Actor, known best for his work on Series like Sliders, The Defenders and My Secret Identity, is in-town and as announced recently his Wife – Actress Rebecca Romijn – currently is in-town filming TV Pilot King and Maxwell till mid-November. Just down the street from Queen Station, Romijn was hard at work as bright lights lit-up the Financial District during the Night Shoot.
McConnell was seen only recently on NBC Television Movie Mockingbird Lane, which aired before Halloween starring alongside Wife of Ellen DeGeneres – Portia de Rossi – and Eddie Izzard.

#FILMING: REBECCA ROMIJN TORONTO-BOUND FOR “KING AND MAXWELL”
Great news, Toronto! Beautiful Actress/Model (and former Wife of John Stamos) Rebecca Romijn has just been cast in upcoming TNT Pilot, King and Maxwell. Centering around a Pair of former Secret Service Agents who use their skills to fight Criminals. Maxwell (Romijn) is forced to resign from the Secret Service is driven to prove herself once again, while King (Jon Tenney) plays her Counterpart. We can expect some explosive Chemistry between the Duo.
Several parallels already are being drawn between King and Maxwell and Series Moonlighting (1985-1989), which made Bruce Willis a Household Name. This of course isn’t the first time Romijn‘s been here as 2000 Blockbuster X-Men, which had her starring as Mystique, was filmed mostly in-and-around Toronto. That Role since has been taken-over by Jennifer Lawrence.
The Shoot will be fast and furious, taking place in Toronto between November 3-15, 2012. Thanks Michelle for the heads-up!
