The highlight of TIFF tonight is probably the premiere for St Vincent at 9pm at the Princess Of Wales theatre. The festival is honouring Bill Murray. They’re telling fans to dress up as him. And of course, he’ll put on a show, like he always does. All that on top of his performance in the film, said to be one of the best, if not perhaps the best, of his career. Full Story

Lizzy Caplan and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are shooting a movie together in New York about Christmas Eve and old friends getting together. (She’s not with Matthew Perry anymore. Remember that???)
