Ryan Kennedy

Ryan Kennedy on new series ‘Tin Star’, Canadianisms, and working with Tim Roth

Many male actors get stuck playing a variation of the same role over and over again. Those options frequently range from the dependable best friend and the jock, to the action hero and the funny slacker or the jerk. Ryan Kennedy has managed to avoid that pitfall. The Canadian native broke into the business as "Med Student" in More Than Meets the Eye: The Joan Brock Story. Since then, he's racked up 45 other credits including guest shots on Blade: The Series, Smallville, Flashpoint, V, Caprica, Mistresses, and Motive. He's enjoyed recurring roles on Defiance, Hellcats, and Whistler.
Victor Zinck Jr.

‘Motive’ star Victor Zinck Jr. talks Detective Mitch Kennecki and series finale

CTV's procedural drama, Motive, experienced a changing of the guard in season four. Warren Christie's Sergeant Mark Cross disappeared, while Victor Zinck Jr. joined the series' homicide team as Detective Mitch Kennecki. The son of District Commander Walter Kennecki, Mitch's cocky attitude and brash work demeanour initially rubbed Detective Angie Flynn [Kristin Lehman] the wrong way. He's been missing in action lately, but Mitch Kennecki returns in a major way in August 23's "Chronology of Pain" and for the series finale, "We'll Always Have Homicide", on August 30.

Author Terry Brooks

Terry Brooks chats ‘Sorcerer’s Daughter’, ‘Shannara Chronicles’ & ‘Magic Kingdom for Sale–Sold!’ adaptation

Terry Brooks was one of the first authors I read as a teenager, and between Magic Kingdom for Sale--Sold! and The Sword of Shannara, he helped hook me on fantasy. Flash forward a couple of decades and Brooks is a hugely successful best-selling author and an executive producer behind the adaptation of his series, MTV's The Shannara Chronicles.
12 Monkeys showrunner Terry Matalas

Once upon a time, on the set of ’12 Monkeys’ season 2

The Emerson Hotel has a spacious lobby, some charming rooms, and if you know the right route to take, a time machine connected through a few back hallways. Sound intriguing? Well, it is, but it's not a funky themed hotel in Toronto, it just happens to be the impressive set of 12 Monkeys, and late last year I took a little staycation there for the afternoon, with a quick visit to the all-important Suite 607.
