Burn Gorman & Mr. Will-W.
What an amazing surprise it was today to take Billy on a walk and run into British Actor Burn Gorman strolling about Yorkville with a bag of new threads from DieselGorman who has built an extensive Résumé overseas in titles like cult-hit series Torchwood and Johnny English Reborn, is now coming into his own as a bona fide Film Star with two major releases to come this year, including Toronto-filmed Red Lights alongside Elizabeth Olsen, Sigourney Weaver, Robert DeNiro and Cillian Murphy, plus eagerly-awaited Blockbuster The Dark Knight Rises, out July 20, 2012.

Gorman revealed that he has been in-and-out of the City filming Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim and that one of the things he looks forward to most here is the Food.  His favourite spot to get a meal is Tokyo Sushi he tells me, although I recommended Yorkville's Sushi Inn, which he promises to try!  He was smitten with Billy telling me that he grew-up with Shih Tzus at-home, although his Mom's often had black and white markings.  "Let's do this, Dude!", he cued me happy to do a quick Snap on my Blackberry.  Awesome Guy!
