Darth-Vader-to-be draws big crowd in Toronto

Hayden Christensen is being mobbed by reporters and photographers in Toronto, where his latest movie, Life as a House premiered at the Toronto Film Festival on Sunday, according to a Reuters report. The film was produced after Christensen finished work on Star Wars: Episode II, in which he appears as Anakin Skywalker (who eventually becomes Darth Vader). “It was important to me to get a film out before Star Wars and really be unrecognizable with the audience,” Christensen told a news conference in Toronto. His co-star in the film, Kevin Kline, commented. “Everyone has been pretty cool here and pretty much ignoring me and swarming all over Hayden.”
