Actor Varun Saranga is having the busiest summer of his professional life this year, and he’s relishing every moment of it. The Scarborough, Ontario native recently joined the ensemble cast of the SyFy and Space original series Wynonna Earp (airing on Fridays at 10pm) for the second season, and it was recently announced this past weekend that it would be returning for a third next year.

Space has released a clip of our “favorite” “mayor” “Rob Ford” from his appearance in Sharknado 2: The Second One. No, that’s not the real Rob Ford, of course, but it’s still worth a chuckle.

Monsters and creatures of the night come in all shapes and sizes, although not if you’re talking about werewolves.

The season finale for Space and BBC America’s Orphan Black airs this Saturday, June 1 at 9:00 PM, and in it, Sarah (played by Tatiana Maslany) comes to a crossroads with her “former partner” Art (Kevin Hanchard), while she must also deal with the crazed Helena.
