Actor Logan Lerman had to re-route his plans to get to the Toronto International Film Festival in Canada after he forgot to pick up his passport in Los Angeles.

The Three Musketeers star almost missed the premiere of his new film The Perks of Being a Wallflower when he realized he didn't have documentation and there wasn't enough time to run home and get it.

Co-star Nina Dobrev reveals, "He forgot his passport in L.A. so he had to go to Buffalo and walk across the border and then they drove him to Toronto. It was quite dramatic, but he rallied."
