Another TV star hanging around Vancouver right now is Brandon Routh, who’s continuing to film his part as The Atom in Legends of Tomorrow.
A few days ago, Routh shared a video of his son Leo racing down a Vancouver street against Grant Gustin, who’s in town filming The Flash.
When your dad is #Superman & #TheAtom, but you heart #TheFlash…😜 HUGE props to the crazy talented and genuinely kind @grantgust for being such a great sport! #Repost @grantgust ・・・ Epic shoot day on location. @kimiles shot what will be 2 amazing sequences. The high point for me was losing to Leo. He did get a slight head start though. And I think my leg cramped up a little. Also I think I had the wrong boots on.

Tyler Hoechin’s Superman is the latest addition to Supergirl since the show moved production to Vancouver. Daily Hive got some great shots of him filming in town.

Oscar-nominated actress Vera Farmiga will likely be in Vancouver in September to film TV show, Bates Motel, in which she plays overly protective mother Norma Bates.
Surprisingly, superstar Rihanna may well join Farmiga in Vancouver, for a one-episode role in Bates Motel, playing Marion Crane.
Crane was the character killed off in the book and Alfred Hitchcock’s film version of Psycho, to which the TV show acts as a prequel.
Since this is the final season of Bates Motel, speculation is rife over exactly how much we will see of Rihanna – and whether we will see her meet her comeuppance.
