A talented Canadian actor [[TypeCasting with a knack for playing]] [[{{Villains}} bad guys]] and [[AntiHero troubled rogues]], Callum Keith Rennie would probably be recognised by most US audiences by his face if not by his name. He's been in everything from ''Film/TheXFilesIWantToBelieve'' to ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' to ''Series/BattlestarGalactica2003'', and had a chance to make it big in Hollywood in the 90s but opted to remain in Canada instead. He's probably best known for ''Series/DueSouth'', and ''Film/HardCoreLogo'' as well as Christopher Nolan's breakout film ''Film/{{Memento}}''; but ''Wilby Wonderful'', in which he plays a character wildly different from his usual type cast, and ''Film/{{Shattered}}'', in which he plays a detective with multiple personality disorder, really put his acting chops on display. But his filmography isn't always quite so illustrious: he's also participated in projects such as ''Slapshot 2''. Whatever the part, you can count on him to make things better just by showing up.

Rennie's turbulent past, bad boy image, and eye-catching charm has earned him a reputation as "Canada's James Dean"--something which he objects bitterly to, describing it as a romanticization of an incredibly difficult period of his life. But that doesn't stop stupid fangirls from admiring that point of his life. Moreover, the media often focuses in on aspects of his alcoholism such as an infamous 1993 barroom fight, but "when I read that it makes me cringe, because it makes it sound like I was a bad ass and I was really just someone who'd got lost in their life and I had sandals on.
