2018 Toronto International Film Festival - Days 3,4 and 5 - featuring - Lady Gaga, Emilio Estevez, Melissa McCarthy and more
The 2018 Toronto International Film Festival has ended, and here is my reports on the festival.
This is part 2, day 3 to day 5.
For part 1, day 0 to day 2, go HERE
For part 3, day 6 to day 8 go HERE
Day 3 started for me later than I had hoped as exhaustion was setting in already. I wanted to do a late morning premiere, but didn't get there in time to have a chance at it, so I started my day instead at an afternoon premiere for Can You Ever Forgive Me, starring Melissa McCarthy, Richard E Grant & Christian Navarro. Pleased to say, a rare occurrence at the fest, all of the cast I was there for were quite accommodating. Richard and Christian signed everything asked of them, while the big star, Melissa, signed a pretty notable amount. I managed to get everything done by Richard & Christian, and 1 from Melissa.
I left that premiere feeling like I had a solid start. I went then to the premiere for "Everybody Knows" with Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz. Unfortunately, this premiere killed my early high. I got 1 Cruz, and 0 Bardems, despite having a really good spot. After such a good start, this was a bit of a gut punch.
My next choice was an easy one for me. My top want of the fest, Mandy Patinkin, was going to have a premiere at the same venue I was already at next. The premiere for Life Itself had a pretty large cast, but it was Dead Like Me star Mandy Patinkin that had me choosing it over others going on at that time which included the likes of Hugh Jackman and Julia Roberts at other venues. I managed to get 1 autograph from Patinkin, keeping my streak of getting my top want of every fest together. I also managed autographs from This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman, Annette Bening and Olivia Cooke, while Olivia Wilde snubbed our area entirely, and seemingly only really interacted with young girls, and Oscar Isaacs no showed. Still, getting Patinkin was worth it for me.
I took a very short break from that venue, to go across the street from it to see if there was any action at the Julia Roberts premiere for Ben Is Back. I was mostly hoping to track down Kathryn Newton, but it was becoming quickly obvious the stars for the film weren't going to leave early, which is something that happens more often than not. I knew I couldn't wait this one out for its end, AND get a good spot in line for the next one I was going to do, so I abandoned my spot at that one to go line up for my next event.
For my 3rd time that day, I found myself at a premiere at the Roy Thompson Hall, this time for Widows. Another movie with a major cast of notable names. I should have done great at this as I had a really great spot. But instead, the unwillingness of the cast to sign soured that. While many DID sign, Viola Davis, and Liam Neeson did NOTHING, and Daniel Kaluuya did little to nothing. I did manage an autograph from the legendary Robert Duvall, as well as some autographs from Colin Farrell, Michelle Rodriguez and Elizabeth Debicki. But even with all those successes, the amount of outright non-signers at the premiere really dampened the excitement for it. At least Liam came over to the crowd to explain he wasn't going to sign because of a wrist injury (whether true or not, at least he made SOME effort to explain himself)
I then headed to the last event of the night, the premiere of Halloween. If you were a fan of Danny McBride, this was a good night for you. If you were a fan of any of the main cast, you went away disappointed, and perhaps, even disgusted. The shows two main leads, Jamie Lee Curtis and Judy Greer both refused to come and meet fans. With JLC going as far as to give the fans the finger when they booed her for walking away from them. Ms. Greer at least didn't flip everyone off, but she did beeline right into the theatre, but in her defense, I believe she was told to do this by the staff at the theatre, as they did stand around her car talking to her inside it for well over a minute before she got out. Disappointing end to a day that started pretty well, and featured me getting my top want of the festival. Andi Matichak also came over to sign, but seemed at first she was not going to either, and got a smaller chorus of boos than JLC did, and in turn came over after a quick photo shoot, whether for PR or a legitimate sense of feeling bad that she didnt first, at least she came over. While producer Danny McBride was good and signed for everyone, I hate to say it, I hope his film flops because of JLC. This former TV actress really thinks more of herself than she actually is.

Day 4 saw me start with the premiere for The Public. This was one I was eager to get a good spot for, as I had a couple items for one of my friends to try and get done. Thankfully, for the person I needed.... it paid off. Things started off with Christian Slater and Alec Baldwin showing up at almost the same time, which is pretty rare at this venue. While I managed a couple autographs from Mr. Slater, I was shut out on the sporadically signing Baldwin who skipped large chunks of the carpet to hasten his arrival time at the media pit, despite the fact they were both 20 minutes before any other cast. I got 1 autograph from the person I went there for, former Breakfast Club and Mighty Ducks star Emilio Estevez. I also managed 1 from Jena Malone, which was rare there as she ignored most requests, and got two autographs from The Wire star Michael Kenneth Williams. Sadly Mr. Baldwin was not the only denial I received there, as Taylor Schilling, Gabrielle Union and Jeffrey Wright also didn't sign in the area I was.
From there, I headed to another premiere, but once I got there I was told of a different event that was going on soon at a venue close to it, so I headed there instead and that turned out to be a pretty great decision.
Before the event happened. They obviously had to let out the movie prior, which to my luck was for Burning starring former The Walking Dead star Steven Yeun. Luckily I got a couple autographs from him as he left. I also helped one other grapher get autographs from another person with the movie, Lee Chang-dong. Its always nice stumbling into bonus autographs, something I would have a bigger one of a bit later.
A live reading of The Breakfast Club took place at the Ryerson Theatre. Every year they do a live reading of some older movie, and they bring in a variety of actors in town for the festival to do the roles, but they don't announce who till the day of. This year, they had Aaron Paul, Christina Hendricks, Jesse Eisenberg, Bel Powley, and a couple others. I managed a couple autographs each from Aaron and Christina. But was of course denied from the always unfriendly Jesse & Bel. If you had told me I'd get 4 autographs there, and still not get two of the people I had stuff for, I would have nodded my head in understanding & known exactly which two I would & wouldn't get.
After that little bonus event, I went back to the theatre I was originally going to to try and get the cast of Her Smell. When I got there, I was a bit surprised how large of a crowd was waiting, as I assumed it was just 1 cast member there, but was told not only were 4 of them there, but the 2nd screening for A Star Is Born had already started showing up.
Like I said a few paragraphs earlier, a bigger unexpected autograph would fall into my lap. When the cast for ASIB came in, I managed to get a few, Dave Chappelle signed 1 for me, Sam Elliott signed two for me, and the biggest "I wasn't expecting to get them at all" one Lady Gaga I got 1 from. Nice extra bonus. Also seen at the showing for ASIB were Salma Hayek and Michelle Rodriguez, BOTH actresses ignored all requests from fans.
A bit later, the cast of Her Smell finally started leaving. I managed a couple Elisabeth Moss autographs, but the rest of the cast Amber Heard, Ashley Benson and the always miserable Cara Delavigne just speed walked out into their awaiting vehicles and left.
After the ASIB cast left, I went around front, just in time to get 1 autograph from Abbie Cornish on the red carpet of her premiere for Where Hands Touch. Unfortunately the movies other star that came Amandla Stenberg ignored all requests and went straight to the carpet.
I ended the night with Sofia Boutella at the premiere of Climax. She was terrific, knocking out all the items I had within just a couple minutes.

Day 5 was a far too short of a day. While lots was going on, remnants of a hurricane made their way through the Toronto area, pouring lots of rain down on the area for most of the day. So I started my day off late.
I first attempted to work the 6 PM premiere of The Death And Life Of John F Donovan. This was such a failure, that I left before the cast had even finished leaving. All I saw of the cast was Kit Harington, who signed a couple autographs, but not a lot, and Susan Sarandon who didn't sign at all... but I couldn't really blame people, as it was still raining pretty hard.
There was ONE event that SHOULD have been a slam dunk, and at a dry place. SO I went there. Every year CBC hosts 3 or 4 talks with individuals. This year, they started with Mahershala Ali, the Academy Award winner from Moonlight, and as I know him, Cottonmouth from Luke Cage. Unfortunately, this was NOT a slam dunk, as other hounds that arrived, got pushy (which isn't rare) but when the entertainer tells you to stop... you are supposed to stop. They didn't, and he handed the pen back after just a couple autographs and went inside.
While his event went on, I had decided the rain had lightened up enough to risk trying for autographs outside, and went to do the premiere for Driven. WHAT A SHIT SHOW! There was LITERALLY 11 fans on the red carpet, so this should have been the easiest thing ever. But between the fact they would have had to cross an active street (although it was closed down when vehicles arrived for a few moments), in light rain none of the cast bothered. Eventually a clunker of a Delorean showed up at the premiere, and two guys who looked like failing film students got out, and they were filming the car, and had Jason Sudeikis pose with it, and a few of the production people took photos and videos of the car.... fine, now get the clunker out of here. NOPE... lets leave it sitting there, doors open on an ACTIVE STREET for OVER TEN MINUTES! The fucking imbeciles that pulled off this moron riddled idea left their car there for 10+ minutes, while City Of Toronto Cops had to hold up traffic at both ends to accommodate this idiocy. In the traffic being held, were two cars for the premiere, including that which had Lee Pace in it. At some point Judy Greer and Cory Stoll both arrived, but not from the front, did quick photo shoots, and went back inside without coming over on the closed street to the whole 11 people there. When Lee finally showed up, he hurried across the street, signed for my buddy and me, then went right back across the street, leaving the other 9 people there with nothing for their time at possibly the most scarcely attended red carpet in this theatres history. Like I said, shit show. AFTER everyone was in, the fucktards who drove their shitmobile to the front of the theatre attempted to get it out of there.... and to top off the worst red carpet of the year.... the pile of shit would not start.... so they had to literally push it down the road. Fucking losers. If these idiots were not fired for this shitshow, the producers of Driven should never be allowed to make another film again just for guilt by association.
After that debacle, I went back to the CBC event, and thankfully, it was a much smaller, and calmer crowd on his departure, and I managed to get 2 autographs there.
I then hurried back to the venue with the terrible red carpet to see if I could get any of the cast leaving. I managed to snag two more Lee Pace autographs (in a dying/dead pen), and 1 Judy Greer, but was still snubbed by Cory Stoll and Erin Moriarty for some reason.

2018 Toronto International Film Festival - Day 0, 1 and 2 - Featuring Chris Pine, Olivia Munn and Julia Roberts + more
The 2018 Toronto International Film Festival has ended, and here is my reports on the festival.
This is part 1, day 0 to day 2.
For part 2, day 3 to day 5, go HERE
For part 3, day 6 to day 8 go HERE
Day 0 was, as it usually is, pretty underwhelming. While lots of people came through, we had a pretty tough time being in the right place at the right time for them. A lot of missing happened day one, and at the end, there was only 3 successes for anyone.
Isabelle Huppert was the first name to be noticed coming in for her film "Greta". The French actress signed a considerable amount of photos for the handful of autograph hounds there with items for her. I did not have stuff for her, but did take a photo of the star taking the time to sign.
During the long gap between TIFF names, we stumbled across former NFL star Emmitt Smith coming thru the airport. While Mr. Smith seemed nice enough early on, he quickly got annoyed with the amount of attention he had garnered and soon cut off all requests for photos with after doing a couple.
Quite a bit later, we ran into the only 3 other people we'd see there for TIFF all within a few minutes. First up was Amber Heard, who was there to promote "Her Smell". Amber signed quite a lot, in fact, she might go down as 1 of the top 10 signers of TIFF.
Shortly after she left, the final two to come in while I was there arrived. Sam Taylor Johnson and Aaron Taylor Johnson arrived. While a few fan girls got photos with Sam, most people asked Aaron to sign, and the former Kick Ass star did so willingly. The pair were there to promote "A Million Little Pieces".
My day 0 autograph total was - 5

My first actual day of my final TIFF started with me happening to stumble upon the hotel that the cast for The Predator was staying at. I first saw Jake Busey, he took the time to interact with everyone at the hotel. Shortly after we saw Boyd Holbrook. I managed to get 1 autograph out of him. Keegan Michael Key came out a bit later, before we saw the person getting the most attention from the cast for her work in calling out a registered sex offender who had gotten a role on the film, Olivia Munn. Having had met Olivia a few times in Vancouver while the film was shooting, I knew she would be terrific, and she didnt disappoint. Truly one of the sweetest stars there is right now. I managed a couple autographs from her before she left. While I was there, I also managed to run into "Suits" star Patrick J Adams, he had stopped by there to get some TIFF credentials/passes done, as he had a film later in the festival to do.
From there I moved on to the back of the Princess Of Wales Theatre for my first "officia' TIFF hounding event.
The cast for "Outlaw King" went to POW to introduce the movie before they moved across the street for their "official" premiere at Roy Thompson Hall. All I got there was 1 Chris Pine autograph as the others I needed from the film did not show. Aaron Taylor Johnson and his wife Sam Taylor Johnson showed up there, and signed for all those who asked.
From there, I tried to see if I could get Mr. Pine again at the RTH premiere, but I was unlucky with that effort.
Next up was the 10 PM premiere of "Kursk" at POW. Unfortunately, this was a failure for me. The two people I went for, 1 did not come, and the other only signed on the opposite side of where I was. I managed 2 autographs from Matthias Schoenaerts, but I went there for Colin Firth and Lea Seydoux, and came away with nothing from them, as Mr.Firth did not come, and Ms. Seydoux only signed for `1/2 the carpet.
I tried to redeem my evening by seeing what I could get at The Predator premiere. Luckily, it was alright. I managed to get 5 cast members on 1 item, Trevante Rhodes, Keegan Michael Key, Thomas Jane, Augusto Aguilera and Boyd Holbrook on it. I also managed to snag two Thomas Jane solo signed photos, so this made the premiere not bad. I missed Olivia showing up, because she showed up so long after the rest of the cast, I thought I had somehow missed her coming in. One notable exclusion was Sterling K Brown and Yvonne Strahovski no showing the premiere. Really was hoping one or both would come. Would have been nice to substitute one of them for Shane Black, who was nothing short of an ass to the fans who asked him for a photo or to sign. Guess he was in a bad mood still for his registered sex offender friends news coming out.

Day 2 started off with one of the "you know its going to be pointless, but you still have to try" type of events, as Vox Lux was having a premiere, which means fighting for placement to try in vain at getting 1 of Hollywoods least willing signers, Natalie Portman. I actually managed to get an "okay" spot, which still did me no good for the elusive Mars Attacks actress... but at least this time, after seeing her twice before at premieres, I saw Ms. Portman actually sign this time... a whole 6 autographs, before she scurried away. Saving the event was Jude Law, who did sign more, and I managed to get 1 out of that at least.
I hurried over to the premiere of Teen Spirit. I managed to get director Max Minghella to sign 1 and got a couple Elle Fanning "autographs". It was a bit of a shock to see the "L loop" autographs Ms. Fanning was handing out considering just a year or two earlier, I got full first name & a few letters of her last name when she signed. Adding to the disappointment was to see no sign of Elizabeth Bennington or Jamie Bell there.
Next up was probably the biggest star name of the day at the same theatre, as Homecoming had its premiere next. Julia Roberts arrived and signed a fair amount, I managed to get two there. Sadly Sissy Spacek showed up pretty late & did not sign going in. Emmy Rossum showed up to the premiere, and completely snubbed all requests of her, whether for autographs or photos.
On the way out for Homecoming, again Rossum ignored all requests, while Julia understandably didnt sign as 1 side of the barricades came almost completely down just before she was coming out the door. Thankfully Sissy Spacek signed on the way out for everyone that needed her, I managed 2 autographs from the Carrie star before heading away from there.
My next event was still at the same theatre, with a 9 PM showing of White Boy Rick. Very few cast of note showed up, but I did manage 1 Matthew McConaughey autograph there. The always unwelcoming Bel Powley signed little, if anything at the premiere.
I then went to the last premiere red carpet of the nght for Nekrotronic. I managed to get aol 5 photos I brought there signed, although Monica Bellucci did make it a bit more difficult than it should have been, but I eventually got all of hers done, as well as my 1 Caroline Ford and my 1 Tess Haubrich.
On my way back to the bus, I passed by the back of a theatre to find out Patricia Clarkson had not yet left her premiere, so I stopped there for a few minutes, and managed to nab 1 from her before I headed off back to Hamilton.

THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS PHOTOS AND A WRITE UP FOR THE SEASON 3 PREMIERE OF THE CW HIT DRAMA "RIVERDALE" THAT IS TITLED "LABOR DAY". If you do not want to read or see any possible spoilers prior to the episode airing, Do not continue on with this article.
For the start of season 3 of the hit teen drama for The CW/ Netflix "Riverdale" the show finds most of the cast filming scenes for the show at the Vancouver Art Gallery earlier this month.
On a funny (and probably planned) fluke, the last time I was at this location for the show, there was an altercation between the shows star Cole Sprouse and a local busker, Babe Coal that made the entertainment media rounds. Well, she was back out there playing on both nights the show was filming inside..... but this time, the production sucked it up, and ignored her.
Much of the cast was on hand over the two days. Cole Sprouse, Lili Reinhart, Camila Mendes and Madelaine Petsch joined K.J. Apa on set over the two days, along with a variety of other regular & recurring cast including Luke Perry, Skeet Ulrich, Madchen Amick, Robin Givens, Ashleigh Murray, Alvin Sanders, Casey Cott, Martin Cummins, Mark Consuelos, Jordan Connor and more.
There was very few chances to really see them around the set, as they stayed inside for most of the days. The only times they were seen outside was when they went for smoke breaks or for their lunch breaks. Since it was all interior, nothing is yet known about the filming of the scenes. What we do know is.... Penelope Ann Miller has been added to the cast in a role that she probably took on that day, since her role is as a District Attorney that is prosecuting Archie Andrews.
A few of the cast met with fans over the two days, but considering how many cast were there, the meetings were few & far between. Cole Sprouse, Skeet Ulrich, Mark Consuelos, Madchen Amick were among the more notable names to stop while I was around.
Riverdale season 3 premiere airs Wednesday October 10, 2018 on The CW or on Netflix the next day.

THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS PHOTOS AND A WRITE UP FOR THE SEASON 4 FINALE OF THE CW HIT SCI-FI SHOW "IZOMBIE". If you do not want to read or see any possible spoilers prior to the episode airing, Do not continue on with this article.
For the 4th consecutive year, I caught iZombie filming scenes for their season finale.... and for the first time ever, Robert Buckley was NOT on set for it (but a Robert was).
On this day, I caught them filming on a side street near Victory Square in downtown Vancouver. A lot of extras were playing the part of an angry moderately armed mob with bats, wood planks and more. At the time of watching it, I obviously had ZERO idea what was going on since this show is filming their entire season before even one episode has aired. Of course, seeing it now, I suspect one of two things was happening in the scene.
On set was Robert Knepper as Angus McDonough, sitting on top of a horse with his now trademark hammer in his hand. It seemed the new reverend was considering riding into the situation that those earlier mentioned mob members were running towards. David Anders, as Blaine Debeers was also there, and in the scene it seemed like he was trying to convince his father to not do it, and reminding him that it was him who made zombies happen, not god. A little while later, they shot scenes with a stunt double riding the horse at a decent pace up the street. The next day, they shot more scenes with the Reverend on the horse, in the Downtown Eastside. I missed that day unfortunately.
iZombie season 4 finale airs Monday night on The CW or on Netflix the next day.
For more past behind the scenes photos of iZombie you can find my posts HERE (season 3 finale) and HERE (season 1 thru 3)

Deadpool 2 is in theatres TODAY - Some Ryan Reynolds photos from DP2 - along with Zazie Beetz and Julian Dennison
With the 2nd installment of the incredibly popular Marvel movie Deadpool coming to theatres today, May 18, 2018, it seemed like maybe it was time for me to start posting some of the photos I took at the set back when it was filming last summer.
These photos see Ryan in & out of his DP suit on set just a day after the production had to shut down after the death of their new stunt driver S.J. (Joi) Harris Needless to say many of us were shocked to see them pick right back up. But, there they were, doing more scenes, along with stunts at the location under the Granville Bridge that has been used by many productions over the years..
On the day I was there, they shot almost exclusively with Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool. They did stunts, but those were apparently super early in the morning, to avoid inconveniencing people too much. A bit later, they did scenes with Julian Dennison as Russell, along with a stunt person in a suit that clearly is going to be CGI'ed over for the scene.
Favorite part of the day was the 1 crew member (its always just one.) who was OBSESSED with me & the pap that was there to the point he followed us around photographing us.
So since he was eager to be famous, I gave him his wish today. Congrats generic dude. You made my blog post.
Also at set was Zazie Beetz dressed as Domino. But I never saw the scene she was shooting, as it was clearly later in the day.
Deadpool 2 is in theatres RIGHT NOW!
Deadpool 2 hits theatres May 18, 2018 - Heres some BTS of Josh Brolin & Zazie Beetz as Cable and Domino, oh and Deadpool too.
With the 2nd installment of the incredibly popular Marvel movie Deadpool coming to theatres on May 18, 2018, it seemed like maybe it was time for me to start posting some of the photos I took at the set back when it was filming last summer.
If you remember the end of the first Deadpool movie, you will recall the Merc With A Mouth telling us all that Cable would be coming for the 2nd one... and sure enough, he is. They got none other than Thanos to be Cable. Josh Brolin came on to the project as Cable, and I was lucky enough on 1 day to see him & his stunt double out doing scenes for the movie.
On the day I was there, they had Cable running down the street with his big ass gun. Not a lot of action during the times I was there. But I did get a couple takes of him where he aimed his gun right at where I was. Of course a lot of CGI work has been done after the fact, to make him look more like Cable, and less like Josh Brolin cosplaying as a homeless assassin.... but only a smidge less than what it took to make him look like Thanos.
I also saw upcoming "Atlanta" star Zazie Beetz and her stunt woman (NOT S.J. (Joi) Harris, this was before she came on) filming scenes one day where she simply was driving around. This was before the terrible tragedy that took the life of S.J. Harris, no real stunts of note were being done on this day. Just a lot of driving around attached to the back & front of a film truck.
I had the pleasure of meeting her on two different occasions. First, just before filming started when I stumbled upon her quite literally by accident one day. Another time, part way through filming when she was returning from being out of town. Wondefully sweet both times I met her.
Also on 1 of the days I caught some stunt scenes with Deadpool (not sure if Ryan Reynolds was in the suit for these takes.... i'm inclined to say no since it entailed driving in & around traffic). I will have more Deadlpool photos, including many of Ryan in another blog post soon.
For now, heres a snall teaser to hold you over till the movie gets here later this month.
Legends Of Tomorrow shoots scenes for the 2017 Arrowverse cross over episode Crisis On Earth X with stunt personnel, Dominic Purcell AND Wentworth Miller
THIS BLOG POST IS FOR "LEGENDS OF TOMORROW" SEASON 4 EPISODE 8 "CRISIS ON EARTH X" AND MAY CONTAIN POSSIBLE SPOILERS FOR THE EPISODE.
If you have not seen the episode, and do not want to see or read possible spoilers about it prior to seeing it, do not continue reading the article or viewing the photos below.
Legends Of Tomorrow filmed some scenes last week for their part in the 2017 Arrowverse cross over event.
Just like I said in the prior blog post on this HERE, many cast were on hand from the 4 shows, and just as many stunt doubles. Later in the afternoon, I had the luck of catching them shoot a scene in the made up garden they had built that had Dominic Purcell as Mick Rory filming a scene with a guy I personally hadnt seen on a set in a couple years, Wentworth Miller as Leonard Snart, aka Captain Cold.
As most bloggers and youtube channels had noted, Wentworth was seen on set sporting some new threads.... and, as a few of those who didnt rush to get their articles out were able to also discuss.... he had some new glasses as well. Gone, the old goggles style glasses of years gone by, now Captain Cold is rocking glasses more in line with what his character wears in the comics. Also noticed, some type of weapons on his shoulder/arm area.
The scene they shot was pretty simple. The duo were busy kicking asses, shooting their cold & heat guns at people.Whether its for the good guys, or the bad guys.... that still is yet to be determined. Guess we'll just have to wait & see if this was the Earth X versions of them, or the prime earth versions of them.
Also shooting during the day was a stunt scene that I posted a youtube video of HERE where Rene Ramirez aka Wild Dog goes & saves someone from a field of bombs going off.
Also caught shooting stunt scenes during this time was The Green Arrow and his Earth X counterpart.throughout the afternoon, White Canary & Black Canary stunt doubles could be seen practicing training routines for possible stunts later on.
The most entertaining part of the day had to be when the set decorations guy, Chris, thought he was being clever taking photos of everyone who was taking photos of the action. More adorable was when he went on a TWENTY MINUTE PLUS temper tantrum rant TO ANOTHER CREW MEMBER because the crew member wasnt physically trying to stop people from taking photos, despite that crew member having his own boss to be accountable to and telling Chris "go talk to him if you have a problem with me" on multiple occasions throughout the whinefest....besides what he was expecting the other crew member to do not being legally allowed, he failed to notice that crew member DID in fact on multiple occasions tell people "please dont take photos" which is the MOST a crew member CAN do, legally. Chris was eager to be noticed, so I am giving Chris his 15 minutes of fame. If you want to see photos from the set, you can find them below the photo of set dec for Legends Of Tomorrow, Chris.
Legends Of Tomorrow is airing on Tuesday nights on The CW. The cross over event is scheduled for Novemeber 27th & 28th
