Exclusive: Brad Anderson on the Darkness of ‘Vanishing on 7th Street’

Posted by admin with 8 Comments

Hayden Christensen leads a cast as Luke, a local TV personality who becomes the de-facto leader of a small group of survivors.

This is a pretty unique cast of characters. Can you discuss the casting choices?
The first one on board was Hayden. He just responded to the mystery of the story like I did and he was looking to play more of a merciless character that he hadn’t really played before. And I wanted to assemble an ensemble that was diverse and felt like they could be a cross-section of Detroit. Different ethniticies and classes of people so that the story took on a fable quality. It wasn’t just four frat boys trying to survive, but these were four kind of everyday people in this American city struggling to join forces to survive against this threat. Continue Reading ?

Finding solace in the face of tragedy

Posted by admin with 13 Comments

Ian Smyth loved Star Wars, so when actor Hayden Christensen spent 15 minutes speaking with him at Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto, it was a treat that bolstered the teen’s spirits.

Smyth, who passed away last month, was at the hospital recovering from a double-lung transplant.

When he was five years old, the Greater Sudbury youngster was attacked by a virus that seriously damaged his lungs, and by the time he was 13, he needed a transplant. Read All ?

Zigomanis has Blue and White fever

Posted by admin with 6 Comments

Mike Zigomanis isn’t sure what the bigger thrill was — playing for his hometown Maple Leafs in the season opener on Thursday night, or playing on a line in minor hockey with Anakin Skywalker of Star Wars fame.

Of course, when Zigomanis was 9 and playing on a line with childhood buddy Hayden Christensen, he had no idea at the time that his skinny winger would some day become a Hollywood big shot — though he did figure that his other winger on that Markham AAA squad, current Vancouver Canucks forward Raffi Torres, would make it to the NHL.

“Raffi was definitely better than me,” said Zigomanis, with a laugh. “He was really good. I had to try to keep up with him. I just basically tried to dig out the puck and get it on his stick in the slot, that’s about it.”

Zigomanis, 29, played with Torres with teams in Markham and North York, from the time they were about 8 until about 13, and he played with Vancouver-born Christensen for a couple of seasons as well.

“He was good, better than me,” Zigomanis said of Christensen, who beat out a certain Leonardo DiCaprio for the role of Anakin Skywalker in the 2002 Star Wars flick, Attack of the Clones. “I was the weak point on the line. They carried me on their back a lot growing up.”

Vanishing on 7th Street Premiere Article

Posted by admin with Comments Off

Verifiably real at the TIFF hot spot was Hayden Christensen, who calmly socialized in the lounge, and his Vanishing co-star Thandie Newton, who looked like a million in a loose magenta top and matching sequined skirt. Ladies at the party were swooning over the newly single Christensen, who built his dream home in Uxbridge with his now ex-fiancée Rachel Bilson. “He looks like James Dean!” a woman in her mid-40s gushed as she watched Christensen smoking outside. Great—now we have a James Dean imposter! Source

Will Packer presents ‘Takers’

Posted by admin with 2 Comments

From Will Packer can breath a sigh of relief now that his long-awaited action flick Takers has had its Hollywood premiere.

“I thought that if we put together a really, really good looking group of guys—sexy bad boys—that women would respond and want to see it. Typically action is a male domain, but I knew that if we casted it and marketed it the right way, we would be able to broaden [our audience] and bring in women as well.”

Paul Walker, Hayden Christensen and Matt Dillion also star in Takers, which reminds us a bit of the Ocean’s series. However Will assures us that Takers is distinctly different, even with its smart-alecky comedy.

“Overall, I think it’s a satisfying movie. I think people will be pleased with it,” Will told S2S, pointing out that the film will be far from predictable. “There’s gonna be some surprises in there. It doesn’t all wrap up the way you might expect it to.”

To see what surprises Will has in store for viewers, check out Takers when it hits theaters on August 27.

K-OS Zambony Hayden Mention

K-os One Step Closer to Knowing Natalie Portman; Watch New Video for ‘Zambony’

If K-os plays his cards right, he’s one step closer to knowing Natalie Portman. The Toronto/Vancouver hip-hop star has recruited Portman’s Star Wars co-star Hayden Christensen for new video “Zambony,” and you can watch it right here.

In the clip, Christensen’s more to K-os than a potential Hollywood “in.” The Vancouver-born actor plays the rapper’s too-cool security detail, though why K-os needs to hire some muscle isn’t entirely apparent, at least until the very end — and even then, we’re skeptical. Maybe, like all of us, he just likes the idea of being chaufferred by a Jedi. Read All ?

k-os – Zambony [Video]

Posted by admin with Comments Off

Brand new video from k-os for the tune “Zambony” off his Yes! album. The video is a Two Three Five Films production and directed by X. Thrilled that k-os decided to make a video for this one.

The visuals for “Zambomy” feature Mississauga natvie Tassja Dawn aka Tassja Kemp Jackson (model/actress/singer) and the young Darth Vader, Hayden Christensen. Truly a song and video that would be appreciated by Canadian fans the most as the song lyrics make it quite clear where the artist is coming from and the video itself is largely centred around Canada’s favourite pasttime, hockey.

How today’s stars will age

Posted by admin with 4 Comments

Hayden Christensen, 29
Youthful good looks. Money. Fame. Talent. A major role in the greatest movie series of all time: “Star Wars.” No wonder women love him and men want to be him. Hayden is a young Hollywood Adonis, with a baby face that will age well over the next few decades. He has a nice head of hair, piercing eyes, full lips and just a little roundness at the tip of his nose, causing him to look like the boy next door that all the girls want to date. Guys like him make normal guys like me look bad.

Thanks Lauren!
