Chad Michael Murray & Mr. Will-W
Heartthrob Chad Michael Murray made a welcome return to Toronto this afternoon, bringing some much needed Star Power to the City for the Holidays. The Actor, best known for his work on One Tree Hill and Box Office Hits like The House of Wax and Freaky Friday, is in-town promoting his debut Graphic Novel Everlast, holding a Meet & Greet with 250 of his beloved Fans at Queen Street's famed Silver Snail Comics.

Murray along with his Actress Fiancée Kenzie Dalton, trekked to Buffalo yesterday - his Place of Birth - for a Barnes & Noble Signing where he met over 1,000 Fans. Earlier today they braved the snowy roads, arriving just 30-minutes late in their California-plated Ford SUV for the Occasion.  Needless to say, his Fans were thrilled to meet the budding Graphic Novel Author, some waiting as  8:00 AM in -11°C weather to secure their spots.  And he rewarded them generously by taking his time to chat with them, pose for Photos and sign copies of Everlast plus Memorabilia.  And did I mention how my Old Man Sweater was a huge hit with Dalton?  She was interested in where I got it!

For those curious, Everlast's Synopsis is as follows: "In every city in America there's always that strange man on the street corner shouting out that the end of the world is coming, and only those pure in heart and in their love of God can survive the coming Apocalypse. But what if that man was actually right, and he was the only person who could save us from destroying ourselves? Derek Everlast is that man, and one of the few people who can ferry others to a place called Haven, the one place of safety from the end of the world.". Order your copy here.

Murray can be seen next year in Drama Renee alongside Kat Dennings, Rupert Friend, Corbin Bleu, Rachael Yamagata and Travie McCoy.
