Jamie Kennedy declares TIFF “too serious”; TIFF unfazed

At first, we were a little confused about why low-brow comedy star Jamie Kennedy is at TIFF; his film, Heckler, premiered more than a year ago at the Tribeca film festival, and he’s not in any of the movies playing in Toronto. Why is he here? Why do we care? Why the red carpet treatment? Oh, right, he’s here to promote the DVD release of Heckler, which came out yesterday (September 9) and a copy of which he shamelessly held in his hand on the red carpet at The Other Man party at Casa Loma on Sunday. Apparently he’s witnessed no funny business in town so far. “It’s too serious,” he said of TIFF. “It needs more humour. Show some comedies.”

We thought Kennedy would surely spread some gossip, but he wouldn’t name any names. All he gave us was a hint that something crazy went down at the dessert table at the Holt Renfrew party, further deepening the mystery and curiosity of the untouchable cakes.—Melita Kuburas
