Talk-show Tango Jan. 16-20: Man on a Ledge, Haywire and Kathleen Edwards

In television on 01/16/2012 at 9:27 am

Only hours after the Golden Globes, in which The Descendants and The Artist split the top film honours – and the hard-to-watch-legally-in-Montreal Homeland nabbed best actress and best TV drama – it looks like a big week for the movies Haywire and Man on a Ledge. You’ll see Ewan McGregor and Sam Worthington, respectively, all over the place, with their costars. But let’s highlight Ottawa singer/songwriter Kathleen Edwards, who’s playing on Letterman this week, promoting her new album Voyageur.
