With Filming having begun earlier this week for David Cronenberg's new Film Cosmopolis, much speculation has been made about which Cast members actually are in-town and more importantly, where the Cast has been filming. Robert Pattinson Fans have been growing impatient with the lack of confirmed sightings on Social Utilities like Twitter.
Worries were laid to rest as Pattinson was spotted out and about on Thursday night at Queen St. haunt Horseshoe Tavern, enjoying some Live Music from British Folk Act Johnny Flynn. Luckily, one Fan (@Flinstones1973) managed to snap a Photo together with him outside. Click here to see it.
Earlier today while strolling through Yorkville I crossed paths with one of his Co-stars, a v. tall and ripped Kevin Durand who stars in the Film as Torval. Durand appeared to have been fresh off a jog, walking with a slight limp and sporting an array of Tattoos, visible under this Tank Top.
I had a moment to chat with the Fan-friendly Durand, who described working with Cronenberg as being "really cool!". He also mentioned upcoming $80 million Sci-Fi Boxing Film Real Steel in which he stars alongside Hugh Jackman (also in Toronto this Summer), telling me that much of his part in fact involves Computer Animation. Heading back into his temporary Residence after taking a Snap together, I saw him walk towards his window moments later, where he looked out towards the street, checking messages on his Phone (seen above). Durand apparently arrived last week as sightings were reported as early as then.
Born in Thunder Bay, the 36 year-old Actor has made a name for himself south of the Border appearing in popular titles like The Butterfly Effect, Robin Hood and Wild Hogs in recent memory, plus many memorable roles in Television like Lost, Stargate SG-1 and Dark Angel. Real Steel hits theatres this October.
Stay tuned as more Cosmopolis Cast sightings are surely to come in the next few weeks!
