Met up with the wonderful Bill Nighy at a Toronto party for our annual chat about soccer. Bill is an ardent Crystal Palace supporter and is curious to see what new manager Neil Warnock can do to improve the team.
But like me, he thinks Chelsea will be tough to beat this year and admires Jose Mourhino's acquisitions.
Bill is in Toronto to promote his latest movie Pride, a true story about how gay and lesbian activists came to the aid of Welsh miners during the 1984 miners' strike.
"I didn't know anything about it until I read the script and I don't think many other people did either," he says. "It's an amazing story."
