PLAYS: Sheriff Jack Carter, who polices the surreal goings-on in a town of geniuses. The show’s July debut earned the Sci Fi Channel its highest ratings for an original series.
ON THE SHOW’S SUCCESS
It’s not like we’re on one of the big networks people normally hit when they surf. You have to make an effort to find us and tune in. So it feels really good when it swings your way. I’m stoked.
ON HIS TRI-CITIZENSHIP
My stepdad was in banking, so I grew up in Montreal, Hong Kong, England and Connecticut. I have British, Canadian and American passports. It’s very Jason Bourne, I know. I sort of wonder sometimes, “Is this illegal?”
ON HIS BIGGEST PRIOR SERIES, AND FLOP, NBC’s COUPLING
It was such a good experience and such good exposure, I’m very grateful. All the checks cleared.
