Hollywood Reacts to Canadian Elections: "Justin Trudeau Is Logan Huntzberger"
"THAT is what Stephen Harper looks like? You can feel the smugness wafting off him."
Canadian-born celebrities have flocked to Twitter in light of yesterday's elections in the Great White North. Between the big news of Labour Party member Justin Trudeau's win and the concurrent reveal of a Gilmore Girls revival, there was much to discuss.
Some, like Orphan Black's Tatiana Maslany, didn't take sides, but merely wanted their fellow Canadian citizens to get out and vote:

Neither Rookie Blue and Camelot star Peter Mooney nor Mara Wilson, lead of the 1996 movie version of Roald Dahl's Matilda, seemed to be fans of Conservative Party member and former Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

Later, however, Wilson also provided the Twitterverse with some Gilmore Girls-inspired Trudeau analysis.

For American-born Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig, the news was a chance to find his Canadian doppelgänger.
everyone in my mentions is telling me I just became the prime minister of Canada. this is like my very own "Princess Diaries"— Ezra Koenig (@arzE) October 20, 2015
New Girl's Hannah Simone recalled rubbing elbows with the new prime minister at a bar 10 years ago.
In the end, though, Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds may have had the most unique comment of them all.
