First photos surface from Rob Ford movie shoot in Toronto
Suave British actor Damian Lewis is in Toronto this week filming for his upcoming movie Run This Town, a political drama set against the backdrop of Rob Ford's last year in office.
Not a whole lot is known about the film just yet, but Lewis did reveal earlier this month that he'd be wearing prosthetics to portray Toronto's famous late former mayor.
Now, thanks to some photos that you simply can't un-see, we know what he looks like in full RoFo regalia.

TMZ reports that Lewis spent a full seven hours in makeup ahead of an overnight shoot on Monday.
The normally-svelte actor was unrecognizable when he emerged from his trailer in Toronto around midnight wearing a Ford Nation t-shirt and some sort of disturbing fat suit for one's head.
Etalk shared some photos of Lewis that were captured a few hours later, at 3:30 a.m., in full costume, "grey suit, blue dress shirt, striped tie and all.
Do not be alarmed.
