Breakfast & a movie: Andy Garcia chats with BT during film shoot

A man in a trench coat walked back and forth in front of the Citytv building in downtown Toronto Tuesday morning, his collar turned up against the cold.

As he paced along Victoria Street, Breakfast Television hosts Dina Pugliese and Kevin Frankish took note – and then it all made sense.

The man in the jacket was Godfather III actor Andy Garcia, in Toronto to film The Truth.

“I’m not getting into the premise – we’re still in the process of shooting it!” he said live on Breakfast Television, adding that he has a soft spot for Toronto.

 “I like Sotto Sotto and the fact that you can get a nice Cuban cigar, every so often,” Garcia said.

He was here before, to shoot Joe Mantegna’s Lakeboat, and has attended the Toronto International Film Festival.

The independent movie – co-starring Eva Longoria and Forest Whitaker – is also being filmed in Sudbury.
