Toronto: Michael Fassbender Tears up Dance Floor at 'Fifth Estate' Bash
Between Benedict Cumberbatch and Bill Condon holding court and an army of hungry suits scrounging for clientele, the celebration of the opening film was entertainment in itself.
Instead of an official afterparty for Toronto opener The Fifth Estate, Anonymous Content manager-producer Michael Sugar hosted a cozy late-night bash at Soho House’s Toronto club along with vodka brand Grey Goose. The film’s Benedict Cumberbatch, Daniel Bruhl and director Bill Condon held court, while most of the other bold-faced names in town mixed about, including Colin Hanks, Paul Giamatti, Michael Fassbender, Juno Temple and filmmaker Steve McQueen.
A phalanx of agents, managers and lawyers congratulated UTA agent Billy Lazarus for booking his client’s Toronto trifecta (Cumberbatch also co-stars in 12 Years a Slave and August: Osage County). Several power attorneys, in particular, jockeyed for position as Cumberbatch is currently lawyerless. Fassbender, who arrived after midnight, treated the crowd to a dance display, grooving on-and-off for an hour with various people, including his obliging publicist and Hanks.
