Pop Goes The News — Kevin Zegers is back in his native country to start work on the film Someone Else’s Wedding.
The 32-year-old actor, who hails from Ontario, was spotted Sunday afternoon walking in Old Montreal after enjoying an Americano at the Maison Christian Faure bakery.
Zegers was decidedly casual in an Under Armour hoodie and sweatpants over a white T-shirt, black gloves, and a Toronto Maple Leafs cap under a pair of black wireless Beats headphones.
He arrived in Montreal this weekend from Los Angeles, where he lives with wife of three years, Jaime Feld, and their 15-month-old twin daughters Zoë and Blake.
One of Zegers’ first stops in the city was an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. Last May, he marked five years of sobriety.
The star tweeted about the local AA experience.
Zegers is starring in Someone Else’s Wedding, a Canadian indie written and directed by Pat Kiely, an actor who had a recurring role in the made-in-Montreal TV series Being Human and appears in the Montreal-shot movie Arrival.
The film, which is in production until Dec. 20, is a romantic comedy about a family forced to deal with the things that divide them while attending the eldest son’s wedding.
The cast includes Kathleen Turner, Jessica Paré, Wallace Shawn, Frances Fisher and Luke Kirby.
Zegers rose to fame in a series of Air Bud movies before breaking out in the acclaimed 2005 Transamerica opposite Felicity Huffman. He has returned to Canada to make several projects, including the 2013 films The Colony and Mortal Instruments: City of Bones and the 2014 mini-series Gracepoint.
Zegers recently wrapped work on the ABC series Notorious. The last episode airs Dec. 8.
Maybe while he’s in Canada, the actor will submit a claim for the $21.21 he left in a Woodstock bank account in 2001.
