On this week’s Slice of SciFi show #119 we have as our special guest, actor Colin Ferguson who plays Sheriff Jack Carter on the hit SCI FI Channel show “Eureka,” seen every Tuesday at 9/8C.
Ferguson was born in Montreal, Canada but grew up in Toronto, Hong Kong, England and the State of Connecticut in the United States. Having moved a great deal, needing to constantly make new friends and having worked in a variety of occupations actually prepared him for the actor’s life in that it made him ready for sudden changes in his fortune and a good eye for opportunity.
Before landing this successful gig at SCI FI, his resume’ was already very impressive. Colin was a member of the Montreal improv group On The Spot, as well as a founding member of The Second City in Detroit. He has worked on both sides of the camera and his feature-film credits include the Universal movie “Because I Said So” with Diane Keaton, the 1996 Olympic flick “Rowing Through,” the very funny “The Opposite of Sex” with Christina Ricci and Lisa Kudrow and many more. He was a regular on the NBC remake of the hit British comedy series “Coupling” and the ABC sitcom “Then Came You.” You also have seen him guest starring on many television shows such as “Malcolm in the Middle,” “Crossing Jordan,” “Becker” and “CSI: Miami.”
Mike and Summer had a real blast talking with Colin as he shared the fun of working with his fellow cast members on “Eureka” and the three of them had such a good time that they actually ran out of time before he could drop some juicy tidbits about what to expect from future episodes. Don’t be too disappointed though because their exciting conversation will keep you glued to your seat and leave you wanting more.
