Creator: Colm Feore
Colm Feore (born August 22, 1958) is an American-Canadian stage, film and television actor. In 2013, he was made an Officer of the Order of Canada "for his contributions as an actor of the stage and screen, notably by bridging Anglophone and Francophone cultures as a fluently bilingual performer". Feore is in...pretty much everything, being a talented and in-demand character actor who can always be depended on to give a strong performance.

Tropes

  • Bald of Awesome: Thinning hair of awesome, anyway.
  • Chronically Killed Actor: It comes with playing so many villains.
    "I'm pragmatic. If this is going to make sense, get me a job and in the end let me put my kids through school. I'll play killers. But my kids always ask me "do you die in this one too, Daddy?"
  • Fake Nationality: Averted, actually. He's American-Canadian, so when he can play both Canadians and Americans, uh, 'honestly'. He's not a native-born Frost Giant, though.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Feore has been in pretty much everything.
  • Its Pronounced Tro Pay: His first name is pronounced 'Column'.
  • Mean Character, Nice Actor: He may play sinister and frightening characters, but his co-workers speak of him as being an absolute blast both on and off the set. Two noteworthy examples from The Chronicles of Riddick are given: During filming, he didn't realize the camera was rolling during one take, and when a dead body is tossed in front of him, he looks directly at the camera and tosses off a Bond One-Liner. Another time, during a party, one of the cast or crew members makes some mention that he's never seen one Shakespeare play or another, whereupon Colm gets up and performs a 5 minute rendition of the play form beginning to end, playing multiple roles simultaneously.
  • Large Ham: Feore has the impeccable instinct to know exactly what kind of movie he's in, i.e. when to deliver an emotionally complex and layered performance or when to go crazy and ham it up like someone slipped bath salts in his drink.
  • Rule Of Sean Connery: Regardless of the quality of the film, play or show he's in, Feore is more often than not the best thing in it.
