Actor Andrew Airlie cast in Seth Rogen's upcoming untitled comedy
Inspiring actor Andrew Airlie has worked on over 100 television and feature film projects during his extensive acting career, and isn’t slowing down anytime soon. Coming up next for Andrew is the role of Dr. Ross in the highly anticipated feature film ‘Untitled Seth Rogen Project’ starring Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The film follows Adam Schwartz (Gordon-Levitt) and his best friend Seth (Rogen). After being diagnosed with a rare type of cancer, Adam is forced to come to terms with the overwhelming challenge of beating cancer, and learning to appreciate what he has in life. Andrew, as Dr. Ross, is Adam’s oncologist with an unorthodox bedside manner.
Andrew will also be seen on the small screen this fall, appearing in the CW’s new television series ‘Hellcats’. He also plays Professor Harris in ‘Dear Mr. Gacy’ a true story from the producer of ‘Monster’, starring Charlize Theron. The drama is based on the experiences of 18-year-old college student Jason Moss and his relationship with notorious serial killer John Wayne Gacy.
The in-demand actor is also currently working on an MOW entitled ‘Killer Mountain’, also starring Emmanuelle Vaugier and Aaron Douglas. Andrew plays Walter Burton, a wealthy industrialist who sponsors a climbing expedition in Bhutan. The mission goes awry and he has to hire another expert climber to rescue the members of the first climb team. With ulterior motives at play, danger and mayhem ensue. ‘Killer Mountain’ is produced by Chris Bartleman and Jeff Schenck, and directed by Sheldon Wilson. Filming is taking place in Hope and Squamish, British Columbia, this spring.
One of the roles that Andrew is most proud of is his recurring role as Mike Goss on ABC/CTV’s ‘Defying Gravity’. The program followed the adventures of eight astronauts onboard the international spacecraft Antares, on its 6 year mission through the solar system. The lives of the astronauts onboard are constantly recorded and broadcast back to Earth, both as part of an ongoing documentary and as part of mission monitoring. Mike Goss is at the centre of the mission’s true purpose, a secret that he hides from the astronauts until after the mission is launched.
Born in Glasgow, Scotland, Andrew moved to Toronto, before putting down roots in Vancouver. The well-rounded performer completed a number of impressive scholarly programs before venturing on his acting career: He attended the University of Toronto, Ulster College (NY) and George Mason University (Virginia), and graduated with a BA (History and Political Science) and a Master’s Degree (International Relations), both from the University of Toronto.
