Oscar-winning actor Richard Dreyfuss says he considers himself an honorary Canadian. After all, his first major film role was as the younger son of a Jewish immigrant family in Montreal in the hit 1974 Canadian film The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz. Dreyfuss calls that movie the The Catcher in the Rye of Canada. Now,  Dreyfuss is starring in another Canadian film called  Astronaut which hits theatres Friday in Toronto and Vancouver.

Shot in Brampton, the drama sees the 71-year-old Dreyfuss playing a lonely widower and retired civil engineer who wins a competition to journey on the world’s first commercial space flight.
