Red Carpet Recap: Two Ryans, One Simpson, and a Spokeslizard

Man, how many kilometres of red carpet does TIFF roll out each festival? It’s got to be a few. That’s for sure. The glitz continued Wednesday night across town with stars Ryan Phillippe and Malin Akerman making appearances at the premiere of Steven Silver’s The Bang Bang Club, a film about four photographers capturing the spirit and tumult of post-apartheid South Africa. Speaking of Ryans, Ryan Gosling was also in town for the premiere of Blue Valentine, a love story which puts him opposite Michelle Williams (who, sadly, couldn’t make it to TIFF). You’re a lucky son of a bitch, Ryan Gosling. But we’re sure you know that. The scene to beat, though, was the premiere of What’s Wrong With Virginia starring Ed Harris and Jennifer Connelly. Lisa Simpson was even there! Well, kind of.
Also, we saw a half-human, half-lizard corporate pitchman slithering around the perimeters of a few red carpets. And how often does that happen? Rarely.
