Max & Shred

Many of my ‘parent’ friends had told me they saw me on YTV but I kept on missing the episode. I finally caught it. Fun little scene with the super talented Emilia McCarthy and Asha Bromfield on season 2 of “Max & Shred”.

I Want My MTV!

So Toronto got hit with its second winter storm of April today and we broke the all time record low for April the other day… time for me to pilgrimage south for a while!

Still months away from riding to Wasaga Beach or eating Jerk Chicken at Cocos in Grand Bend me thinks! But get the grill fired up anyway Mick!

ROOM Movie Poster

Cross your fingers while watching the Oscars tonight for the film “ROOM” which was mostly shot in Toronto. The lead Brie Larson has already swept all major award shows (Screen Actor Guild, Golden Globes, Independent Spirit Awards, Critics’ Choice and BAFTA) for her wonderful performance can Oscar be next? I should also mention the young boy Jacob Tremblay also won the Critics’ Choice as well.

I was honored to work with both actors in a small scene for this film… keep your eyes peeled for me in a brief but rememberable appearance! The ROOM is still playing in theaters and available on pay per view – support it!

It is nominated for BEST PICTURE, BEST DIRECTOR, BEST LEAD ACTRESS and BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY.

The film “BROOKLYN” is also up for best picture and was mostly shot in Montreal Canada.

Torontonian Rachel McAdams is up for BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS in “SPOTLIGHT” and as well fellow Torontonian The Weeknd is up for BEST SONG for “Earned It”.

Go Canada! Watch the Oscars and go see the “ROOM” and “BROOKLYN” as soon as you can!
