Guest TV Roles
Colm Feore (born August 22, 1958) is an American-Canadian stage, film and television actor.
Feore was born in Boston, Massachusetts to Irish parents who lived in Ireland for several years during Feore's early life, subsequently moving to Windsor, Ontario, where Feore grew up. After graduating from Ridley College in St. Catharines, Ontario, he attended the National Theatre School of Canada in Montreal, Quebec and University of Windsor in Windsor, Ontario. He is also fluent in French. Feore lives with his wife, choreographer Donna Feore, and their three children, Jack, Tom and Anna, in Stratford, Ontario.
Feore honed his acting skills as a member of the Acting Company of the Stratford Festival of Canada, North America’s largest classical repertory theatre. He spent 16 seasons at Stratford where he rose from bit parts to leading roles, including Romeo, Hamlet, Richard III, and Cyrano. He returned in 2006 to star in four productions, including Don Juan in both English and French and as Fagin in Oliver!. More recently, in 2009 he played the main role of Macbeth in the play "Macbeth", and the main role of Cyrano in "Cyrano de Bergerac" both performed at the Stratford Festival Theatre.
In Canada, Feore’s most famous roles were as Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau in the critically-acclaimed television mini-series Trudeau, a role for which he won a Gemini Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Dramatic Program or Mini-Series, and as by-the-book anglophone detective Martin Ward in the box-office hit Bon Cop, Bad Cop. He also played a crazed marketing executive imposter in the second season of the popular Canadian TV series, Slings and Arrows, a role that continued for several episodes. The show has run in the United States on the Sundance Channel.
Outside Canada, Feore has appeared in numerous film and television roles. He is perhaps most famous in the United States for his supporting roles in such Hollywood films as Paycheck, National Security and The Chronicles of Riddick. He also appeared on Broadway as Cassius in the production of Julius Caesar starring Denzel Washington as Brutus. Off-Broadway, for the Public Theatre, he was Claudius in a Hamlet that starred Liev Schreiber. He has portrayed the First Gentleman Henry Taylor on the seventh season of 24. He was the crooked Los Angeles Police Chief James E. Davis of Changeling in 2008. In September 2009, it was reported that Feore has been cast in an unknown role in the upcoming live-action superhero film, Thor.
