UPDATE - 9/24@11:05AM: Here are some photos of Alex from the Suck premier: [photo 1] [photo 2] [photo 3]. And here's a bootleg video of Alex at the Suck after party at the Phoenix Theatre in Toronto. He joined the band Burning Brides onstage for the song Flesh and Bone which appears on the movie's soundtrack (thanks RushFanForever).

The podcast of their appearance is now up on the station's website at this link (thanks RushFanForever). You can download it here or listen using the player below. The interview begins at around the 26 minute-mark (counting down) and runs 9 minutes or so. There's very little mention of Rush and no news at all regarding any of the band's immediate or future plans.

The film's trailer was released last week and Alex Lifeson's border guard character made an appearance. Suck was shot entirely in Toronto and also stars Malcolm McDowell, Dave Foley, Henry Rollins, Iggy Pop, Moby, Carol Pope, Jessica Pare, Alice Cooper and his daughter Calico, and Dimitri Coates. The film is slated for theatrical release sometime in October but you can get a sneak peek of it at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival. For theaters and show times check out the TIFF website.
