I remember in high school thinking that I wanted to be a lawyer and now I realize I saw that movie And Justice for All when I was a kid and thought Thats what lawyers do and I want to get up and yell and scream in the middle of a courtroom.
When I was fourteen years old our family drove all the way from Vancouver to Newfoundland and back. Ive been all across the great land of Canada. I absolutely love the Maritimes and Im very excited to go back particularly in the fall when its one of the most beautiful places on Earth.
I would be the worst acting coach ever because I have no idea what Im doing.
My mom says that when I was a little kid I always used to say I wanted to be an actor but I dont remember that.
I have a new show now called The Bridge where I play a guy whos a real-life guy. My characters based on the life of a guy named Craig Bromell who was a cop for 12 years and then became head of the police association so basically the president of the union for 85000 cops.
The great thing about Battlestar was that it was basically Star Wars but once a week as opposed to waiting for three years for the movie to come out. I was a huge Battlestar fan.
My buddy tells me a lot of interesting stories about what goes on in prison – it just makes my head spin about what they deal with on a day-to-day basis.
As an actor were unemployed a lot so Im familiar with the stress of trying to get a gig and sometimes you take shows that you dont really want to do to keep the money coming in.
I dont like shows that are predictable. I like it when youre shocked and you have no idea whos about to die.
I grew up playing hockey and some football and I always think about the first time you walk into the locker room on a new team. The cliques are looking at you funny and you make one friend but then theyre trying to stab you in the back.
Im a chubby middle-aged white guy with short hair. I think thats it really. I kind of have a look. Right now Im not fat enough to be the fat friend but Im not thin enough to be the leading man so I look like a cop.
I love going to conventions and I love spending time with the fans and going to parts of the world where I wouldnt normally go.
I do miss Battlestar the cast and crew. That was a pretty well-oiled machine. Its sort of like you dont know what youve got till its gone. But I go to a lot of sci-fi conventions and I love going and talking about the show.
Star Trek put sci-fi on the map and changed television and Battlestar has changed it in another direction by making it a little more mainstream and acceptable to people who wouldnt normally watch sci-fi.
