No Comments

From the Niagara Falls Review:

With help from some friends, Niagara comedian David Green has found the funny side to being lost in the woods.

Director Sobol brings it all back home, again

From the Niagara Falls Review:

As tensions rise between the border guard and suspicious driver at the Rainbow Bridge, Jonathan Sobol can’t keep a straight face.

He’s watching on a monitor ten feet away as the guard, played by Canadian comedian Mike Wilmott, asks the driver – actor Jay Baruchel – what’s in the trunk of his car. With every take, Baruchel changes his answer.

“Smugglers,” he responds. “I am smuggling smugglers in my trunk.”

It goes on for a half dozen takes, the crew smirking with each one, careful not to laugh and ruin the scene. Finally Sobol yells cut and everyone breaks for lunch. He asks Baruchel which take he liked best.

“That’s up to you, dude,” he says.

Sobol gives his star a hug, and all is well on the set of The Black Marks, the Niagara Falls director’s follow-up to his 2010 dark comedy A Beginner’s Guide to Endings, also filmed locally.

Did Dan Aykroyd just diss us?

From the Niagara Falls Review:

Dan Aykroyd, you’ve got some explaining to do.

Local fans might be wondering who they’re gonna call after the ‘Ghostbusters’ and ‘Saturday Night Live’ star called Niagara Falls, New York “a little prettier” than its Canadian counterpart during an appearance across the river Saturday.

Aykroyd was promoting his Crystal Head Vodka at Supermarket Liquors on Niagara Falls Blvd. when he praised the American city as “one of the unpolished gems of American architecture.” As he received the key to the City from Mayor Paul Dyster, Aykroyd raved about the city’s infrastructure, original office buildings and power dams.

“In Canada, we say we have the longer Falls and maybe the prettier ones,” he said. “But I think the city of Niagara Falls, New York is a little prettier than Niagara Falls, Canada.”

It’s a comment which made Niagara Falls Tourism chairman Wayne Thomson chuckle.

“Well, he is a comedian,” he cracked.
