PRINCIPAL CAST

Alan Catlin first made a name for himself as a member of the Second City Tour Company, and then on Second City’s London Main Stage. With his unique dry wit and subtle delivery, he was touted as “the next Bill Murray.”

A favourite with critics and audiences alike, it was no surprise to anyone that he became a multiple-award winning comedic actor for a number of memorable advertising campaigns, and a mainstay on Canadian television screens.

Among his accolades, Alan has won a Kari Award, Marketing Magazine Jury’s Choice Award and a Cannes Festival Gold Lion. As Marketing said in an article about the year’s best commercials, “When you put Al Catlin in a spot, you’re bound to get something worth watching.”

Catlin’s commercial success led to interest from directors wanting to harness his comedic talent in film and television. He has worked on several television series including Wind at My Back, The Newsroom, Sue Thomas F.B. Eye, Life with Derek and Pure Pwnage, but has most recently been cast as a series regular on the soon-to-be broadcast Debra! on Family Channel. The show is being closely looked at by Disney in the US.

After numerous smaller film roles, Alan Catlin will be showcasing his comedic skills, along with his lesser known singing prowess, in a featured role in the upcoming film, Unlucky.

Born and raised in Hong Kong, Jenny Raven has been a child of the performing arts from an early age, practicing as a flautist and training in classical ballet for 9 years. Performing on stage at her church and school sparked her interest in acting and led her to graduate out of the specialized A-Level drama and theatre program. Her first film audition landed her a role in the Hong Kong feature “Men Suddenly in Black”, a film spoken entirely in Cantonese, which she is fluent in.

Moving to Toronto, Canada 7 years ago for school, Jenny has immersed herself in her craft, working on various projects including the Cannes Short Film Corner participant Patient, appearances on Rookie Blue and Lost Girl as well as a series lead on the Teletoon show Majority Rules.

André Sills is pleased to be playing Voice-Box in I Kill Monsters and looking forward to killing many monsters. Other theatre credits include Courageous with New Stages Theatre, Out At Sea with SummerWorks and ARC, Kim’s Convenience with Toronto Fringe, Window On Toronto with Soulpepper, Ruined with Obsidian Theatre, Richard III with Hart House Theatre (Best Actor Nomination Broadwayworld.com), Taming Of The Shrew and As You Like It with Theatre By The Bay, The Nile with Toronto Fringe, A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream with Shakepeare In Action, The Overwhelming with Studio 180 and The Canadian Stage Company, Othello and Radio Golf with The St Louis Black Rep, Much Ado About Nothing with The Canadian Stage Company. He has also spent four seasons at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival of Canada and also did the Birmingham Conservatory under David Latham. He has also appeared in CBC’s Insecurity, CTV’s Dan for Mayor, TMN’s Good Dog and Global’s Rookie Blue. Andre is a graduate of the George Brown Theatre School.

Kyle Buchanan is a proud native of Orangeville Ontario, the town in which is he first discovered his love of entertaining. Many appearances as an award winning step dancer and in local theatre productions brought him to the attention of a Toronto talent agent and he began auditioning for professional work while still in high school. Comfortable in front of crowds from an early age (a Master of Ceremonies at age ten), Kyle’s genuiness and sincerity have become a staple in his work in both stage and film. He recently wrapped on the sci-fi comedy “Dark Rising 2″ (slated to be released in Winter 2011), Disney’s “Sharpay’s Fabulous Adventure as well as making a guest appearance on the new Teletoon series “Mudpit”. Of course, Kyle may be best known as the naive “Tyler” in the Roger’s Wireless Campaign!

When Randy Thomas is not living undercover as the local Sheriff, he can be found @ an internet TV station in downtown Toronto called ThatChannel.com. Being one of the owners of this upstart business (that has made TV production affordable & accessible to everyone) has kept Randy busy between his acting gigs. The opportunity to share his TV & film experience with those who produce shows at his studio has been extremely valuable for ThatChannel.com and very rewarding for Randy.
