TV eh B Cs podcast – Peter Keleghan sounds off on the Canadian TV industry

tvehpodcast

Peter Keleghan got his start at Toronto’s famed Second City comedy training centre and was an active stage performer until moving on to television, where he co-wrote and co-starred in The Comedy Mill from 1986-91. He then moved to Los Angeles and appeared on Cheers, Murphy Brown and Seinfeld and in a recurring but brief role on the daytime soap, General Hospital.

Keleghan returned to Canada and in 1991 he joined Steve SMITH on The Red Green Show as Ranger Gord. He was a heartless film tyrant in Rick MERCER’s Made in Canada and the outwardly affable and hopeless dullard Jim Walcott in Ken Finkleman’s The Newsroom.

The next decade saw Peter Keleghan earn major parts in feature films, most notably Niagara Motel. He also appeared in, among other movies, Ginger Snaps, Coopers’ Camera, Eating Buccaneers and GravyTrain. He currently appears in film comedy Big News from Grand Rock.

He’s been in numerous TV series, including Slings and Arrows, Billable Hours, Murdoch Mysteries, and Saving Hope, and won the 2011 Gemini Award for best actor in a leading comedic role for his part in 18 to Life.
