Callum Keith Rennie as Rick Felder
Callum Keith Rennie was born in Sunderland, England, raised in Alberta, Canada and was first struck with the passion to act while living in Edmonton. Starting out in university radio and working his way to the renowned Shaw Festival, Rennie moved to Vancouver and quickly caught the eye of producers and directors.
Further to his many early television appearances such as My Life As A Dog winning a Best Actor Gemini Award, Twitch City, and Due South for which he was nominated for a Best Actor Gemini Award. Rennie landed his first independent feature film role in director Mina Shum's Double Happiness, for which he garnered a Best Supporting Actor Genie Nomination, and continued to star in many other Canadian films including Kari Skogland's Men With Guns and Bruce McDonald’s critically acclaimed Hard Core Logo.
Rennie went on to star in many other feature films of note including Christopher Nolan’s Memento, David Cronenberg's Existenz, Lynne Stopkewich's Suspicious River, his second feature film with filmmaker Bruce McDonald Picture Claire, and Last Night directed by Don McKeller which earned Rennie a Best Supporting Actor Genie Award. He then starred in Flower & Garnet from director Keith Behrman, Falling Angels opposite Miranda Richardson and in Daniel MacIvor's Wilby Wonderful. He would join Carrie-Anne Moss, Sigourney Weaver and Alan Rickman in Snow Cake and then again opposite Carrie-Anne Moss in director Carl Bessai's moving feature Normal. His work in Normal won him his second Genie Award in the Best Supporting Actor category. Rennie worked on David Goyer's The Invisible opposite Marcia Gay Harden and, shortly thereafter, Chris Carter's much anticipated feature film sequel The X-Files: I Want To Believe and Case 39 opposite Renee Zellweger. Shortly thereafter Rennie would find himself opposite good friend Paul Gross in the western comedy Gunless, a role that gave him yet another Genie Award nomination for his supporting performance in the film.
Rennie's many television credits include the multi-award winning miniseries Tin Man from director Nick Willing, which broke several viewership records for the SyFy Network, and the hit SyFy series Battlestar Galactica with Rennie playing his now infamous Cylon role of "Leobon" for four seasons. Rennie's critically-acclaimed turn as rock producer "Lew Ashby" in Showtime's Californication opposite David Duchovny generated a great deal of buzz and was subsequently followed up by several recurring appearances on FlashForward, FOX's 24 (going toe to toe with fellow Canuck Kiefer Sutherland), ABC's Rookie Blue, and Alphas, again for SyFy.
Most recently, fans enjoyed Rennie's new one hour series Shattered from eOne Entertainment and Canwest Media, in which he starred as a seasoned police detective dealing with his own multiple personality disorder. The role earned Callum a Leo Award for his riveting work on the series and was followed by a recurring role on AMC's Emmy-nominated series The Killing and television mainstay CSI: Miami.
Next Rennie begins production on the new eOne, Paramount Television and Sony Pictures Television series The Firm, based on the bestselling John Grisham novel and motion picture of the same name. The Firm is expected to bow on NBC and GLOBAL in 2012.
