Rachel McAdams was in Toronto on Saturday for Canada’s Walk of Fame event. She wore black and white for the awards and then red inside at the dinner. And she had several members of her family there with her, that’s how exciting the honour was for all of them, not only because of course she’s Canadian, but because it was happening in her own city. Full Story

Keanu Reeves was in New York for the premiere of John Wick on Monday night, the same day he was on Reddit for an AMA. I wasn’t paying attention the last time he did an AMA but there’s a quirk. A Keanu Reeves quirk: he answers a lot of questions with “today”. Example: how do you like your eggs? Today, I like my eggs over-easy. Full Story

Variety reported today that Rachel McAdams is very close to signing on to True Detective season 2. Her name came up after Elisabeth Moss was rumoured, and then they apparently ended up auditioning several other actors because of a scheduling conflict; she’s also working on a film called Spotlight and they had to negotiate so that she could take on True Detective without giving that up. Full Story

One of the earliest rumours about the True Detective Season 2 casting was that Ellen Page and Kate Mara would replace Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. I was excited about that. I didn’t really care for Season 1 but if they’d set it up like that for Season 2, I was in. Didn’t happen. Full Story

W Magazine’s cover feature this month: The New Royals There are several women who’ve been chosen. The best one, to me anyway, since we’re keeping with a Canadian Maritime theme today: Ellen Page, born in Halifax.

US Weekly reports exclusively that Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling's baby girl arrived on Friday, September 12. No name has been announced. Which is not surprising.
