A starry TIFF 2010
Some people thought that Cannes this year was low on celebrity. This will not be a complaint at the Toronto International Film Festival where it’s now known to be a launching platform for an Oscar campaign. It’s TIFF’s 35th anniversary and the star list is LONG.
Some of the notables include:
Robert Redford, Guillaume Canet, Woody Allen, Mahamat-Saleh Haroun, Tran Anh Hung, Alejandro González Iñárritu, Mike Leigh, Julian Schnabel, Im Sang-Soo, Robert De Niro, Dustin Hoffman, Aamir Khan, Ben Affleck, Javier Bardem, Marion Cotillard, Clive Owen, Colin Firth, Juliette Lewis, James McAvoy, Ewan McGregor, Helen Mirren, Edward Norton, Christopher Plummer, Natalie Portman, Om Puri, Ryan Reynolds, Sam Rockwell, Amy Ryan, and Hilary Swank.
Blue Valentine is also coming. Which means Ryan Gosling. Um, RYAN GOSLING. Also... Taylor Kitsch with The Bang Bang Club. And Keanu Reeves for Henry’s Crime. And Emma Stone in Easy A. And Never Let Me Go will be at TIFF which hopefully means Keira Knightley and Carey Mulligan. They’ve yet to confirm their attendance but it’s unlikely that a film making its world premiere doesn’t book its leads to support it.
So while Granny Freeze and Third Lip have yet to add their names, I imagine they’d have a hard time selling Rabbit Hole without Nicole Kidman.
But the quiver...
So much quiver...
McAvoy, McGregor, Clive, Norton, Rockwell, Affleck (if he’s your thing), the aforementioned Gosling, Reeves, and Kitsch, to say nothing of the style porn potential from Keira, Carey, Gran, Naomi Watts, and Blake Lively’s tits if she comes for The Town, and so many more.
It’s two weeks of amazingness in my home town and I’m covering the festival this year for etalk again, my 5th year. We’ll be all over it. September!
