John Lithgow is in B.C. right now filming his next movie, Rise of the Apes, a prequel to Planet of the Apes, but he’d rather be partying back home than working in the Great White North. After receiving an Emmy nomination today for his performance in the TV thriller Dexter, Lithgow confessed his disappointment to the L.A. Times for having to work with no play in Canada. “I’m afraid I have to celebrate by going to work in about an hour,” he said, “…with a bunch of Canadians who probably don’t even know what an Emmy is, or even care.”
