On my last Friday night at Toronto I happened on the “Star Schmooze” at Queen and John. After a long wait and a long talk with a random stranger I was ‘rewarded’ by the appearance of (among others):
- Billy Talent
- Sarah Polley
- Eugene Levy
- Mr. “motherfucking snakes on this motherfucking plane” Samuel L. Jackson
Clad in a yellow sweat, black jeans, beret and yellow-soled sneakers it was obvious that Samuel L. Jackson had a “bee” thing going. After an interminable wait he was finally allowed to walk the red carpet – which he did, all smiles and waves.
You’d be surprised at how ad-hoc the entire affair was.
