Thrush Remembers Tootoosis At Gemini Awards

  • WENN
Canadian actress Michelle Thrush paid tribute to her late Blackstone co-star Gordon Tootoosis as she picked up a trophy at the Gemini Awards on Wednesday.

Thrush won the Best Actress in a Drama prize for her role as an alcoholic mother living on the fictional Blackstone Indian reserve, and the star used her acceptance speech to remember Tootoosis, who died in July.

She told the audience at the ceremony in Toronto, Canada, "About 23 years ago when I began acting, there weren't a lot of brown faces on television and Gordon was one of a handful. He urged me as a teenager to get into acting."

Other winners at the annual TV awards included Tracy Dawson, who was named Best Actress in a Comedy, for Call Me Fitz, Callum Keith Rennie (Best Actor in a Drama, for Shattered) and Peter Keleghan (Best Actor in a Comedy, for 18 to Life).

Call Me Fitz was a big winner at the awards ceremony - it landed six other honours including Best Director and Best Writing. The Borgias landed the Best Drama Series prize, while the Rick Mercer Report was named Best Comedy Series.

"I read a script that made me cry, that made me feel, that made me happy to be a human being," Morales told Fox News Latino.

Morales said that the movie deals not with sexual orientation but with gender identity.

Shattered – a stonking showcase for its mesmerising hero

It's all about a homicide detective with multiple personality disorder – and Callum Keith Rennie is just the man for the role

I love Callum Keith Rennie. I loved him in Don McKellar's film Last Night, I loved him as Lew Ashby in Californication, I loved him above all as Detective Stanley Raymond Kowalski in the later series of Due South. I even sat through David Cronenberg's eXistenZ just to see him, and that's a Jennifer Jason Leigh-filled two hours of my life I'm never getting back.

He's a brilliant, mercurial actor, alternately twinkling and smirking, calm and volatile, intense and insouciant, intelligent and suddenly adrift. He turns on a sixpence and it is quite mesmerising to watch.

As such, he is the perfect choice to play the lead in the new police drama Shattered (Mondays, Hallmark). Ben Sullivan is a homicide detective with multiple personality disorder. It's been in apparent abeyance,

Geek shows and movies on UK TV in the coming week

The Pillars Of The Earth. Dave's One Night Stand. Mark Gatiss. Buzzcocks. Sanctuary. The Inbetweeners. Movies. It's a busy week of British telly ahead...

For the second week running, there's a lot to get through over the next seven days of UK telly, so we'll be short and, hopefully, sweet in helping you set your reminders early.

8 Out Of 10 Cats bids farewell to Tellyville tonight, Friday, October 15th at 10:00pm on Channel 4.

Callum Keith Rennie Talks About 'Shattered'

Yesterday, the Canadian procedural drama Shattered premiered on Global, a Canadian TV network. Today, Global released a video which is an interview with Callum Keith Rennie, the show's leading actor.

In this video, Rennie talks to cultural reporter Lori Harito about his character and the show.

In the pilot titled "The Sins of Fathers", homicide detective Ben Sullivan (Callum Keith Rennie) gets a new partner in the person of Amy Sullivan (Camille Sullivan), a detective who just got transferred from the Sex Offences Division of the Vancouver Police Department. As soon as they're bonded, Sullivan and and Lynch are put on a homicide case involving a dead child.

As he sees the body of the dead child, Ben's mind is taken over by his most violent alter. While he and his partner were chasing a killer, Ben (or rather someone else) grabs the killer, but gets thrown to the ground.

Where to catch the cast this fall

August 15 has come and gone with no news about the actors' contracts getting picked up for a second season or any word on what Syfy is thinking these days, but with the cast appearing in about a gazillion other things this fall, the hiatus blues should be getting easier.

If you're in New York some time between September and January, you can catch a short film, Untitled, with Eric Stoltz starring, at MoMA (see article.)

No release date has been set yet for his last feature, Fort McCoy (pic left), but IMDb still says 2010, so fingers crossed.

And this is still unconfirmed, but an extras casting director tweeted yesterday that our daddy Graystone will direct one of the new episodes of Glee. If true, the episode should air in the first half of the season. The show returns on Tuesday, Sept. 21 at 8 on Fox.

Alessandra Torresani has been cast in Playback,

Words on the street are, Jessica Stroup and Dustin Milligan are no longer an item. The twosome, who once co-stars on "90210" with her taking on the role of Erin Silver and him starring as Ethan Ward, seemed to be giving a hint that they might have been heading to splitsville on Sunday, August 15.

On the particular day, 23-year-old Jessica was seen stepping out solo when making an appearance at the Breakthrough of the Year Awards which was held at West Hollywood's Pacific Design Center. 25-year-old Dustin, in the meantime, gushed to Et Canada what he has in mind about being single in Hollywood.

The actor of "Butterfly on a Wheel" spilled, "I, being a bachelor in Hollywood, have always tried to maintain that it would be silly for me to get tied down, just silly." He went on to say, "So I am always keeping my options open. I am

Callum Keith Rennie is ‘Shattered’

Battlestar Galactica and Due South actor Callum Keith Rennie is coming back to TV screens with Shattered, a brand-new detective drama for Canadian cable channel Showcase.

The role should be quite a challenge for Rennie as his character is afflicted with multiple personalities – personalities who all want their own way:

In the first moments of the series, Ben is bonded in blood to his tough, beautiful partner Amy Lynch (Camille Sullivan). While they work to solve the murder cases that cross their desk daily, Ben copes with the fascinating complexities of his secret disorder, and the uncertainty of never knowing which alternate personality will surface, or when.

Pierce Brosnan Joins ‘St. Vincent’

It looked like Walter Hill’s crime thriller St. Vincent had fallen by the wayside when original star Mickey Rourke dropped out of the project – following his Oscar nominated performance in The Wrestler.

Well that’s far from the case, as former James Bond star, Pierce Brosnan, has slipped into the vacated role. St. Vincent is up for grabs at the Cannes Film Festival with shooting starting on July 12th in Detroit.

Billy Bob Thornton, Maria Bello, who starred with Brosnan in Butterfly on A Wheel (or Shattered depending on where you caught it), as well as Giovanni Ribisi have also joined the St. Vincent cast.

According to Variety:

“St. Vincent follows a hitman (Brosnan) who goes undercover as a priest to get close to his target, a gangland traitor (Thornton). The hitman soon discovers…
