Expatriate Canadian actor Christopher Plummer is mad at organizers who got him to participate in last week's nationally broadcast tribute to retiring Prime Minister Brian Mulroney.
Plummer, visiting Toronto from his home in Connecticut, said no one told him the live broadcast was part of the leadership convention where Mulroney's successor was being picked."I was invited to introduce him for a tribute," Plummer, who's perhaps best known as Baron von Trapp in "The Sound of Music," told a Toronto writer. "I only found out a week before that it was connected to the convention, or I would have said no. I never do political stuff. Never. They have this trick of not telling you. Maybe they assume you know, but I live in America, and I assure you there was no mention of the leadership race in the U.S. news."
