SINGLE WHITE SPENNY debuts on June 2 – and as if that’s not enough….

SINGLE WHITE SPENNY – the show I shot last winter in Toronto – finally debuts on Showcase in Canada on June 2nd. The show was a blast to work on – lot’s of room for improv – and apparently the finished product looks really good. The Spenny in the title refers to Spencer Rice (of KENNY vs SPENNY fame). His character is a newly divorced 30-something guy who is entering the dating world all over again. I play his neighbor, Phil, who just wants hang out with Spenny and be a part of his life – as much as humanly possible. Also in the cast are the super-talented Deb McGrath, Nikki Payne and Amy Matysio.

We shot eight episodes back in November/December 2010 in a very chilly Toronto.  And despite missing my family – I had a terrific time working on the show.  My fellow cast members are truly hilarious – every one of them.  And the guest stars for various episodes were a treat to work with as well.  One of them was award-winning actress Fiona Reid.  First of all – what a wonderful actress.  And secondly, what a pleasure to work with her.  Sweet, funny…and hey, her character has a crush on me.  It’s a win/win.

Another guest star on one of the episodes was Colin Mochrie (WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY) – an old pal from theatre school days (that’s Studio 58 for those keeping track).  He was as funny as ever.  The guy could read the phone book and make you laugh.  And to top it off – he is terribly nice.  Not long after he worked on SINGLE WHITE SPENNY, he was off to do a movie somewhere for a few days – and then he was back to Toronto to perform in a live comedy/improv show (THE CARNEGIE HALL SHOW – again – for those keeping track).  Who doesn’t want to work with this guy?!

There is much more news to tell….like working on a school movie written by the hugely popular FUTURAMA’s Executive Producer Mike Rowe, the passing of a wonderful man and actor from the WINGIN’ IT family, a visit to the CBC Museum in Toronto, and getting shot in the head by a wickedly delightful “call girl” in a webisode called NOIR.  That news and more to follow shortly.
