Harland Reesor Williams (born November 14, 1962) is a Canadian-American actor, comedian, author, artist, musician and radio personality.

Biography

Harland Reesor Williams was born on November 14, 1962, in Toronto, Ontario, to Lorraine Mary (née O'Donnell), a social worker, and John Reesor Williams, a lawyer who served as a member of the Ontario legislature from 1975 to 1985. He is the middle child of five with two older and two younger sisters.

Harland holds dual citizenship with Canada and the United States.

He is an author and illustrator of his own series of children's books involving a little brontosaurus named Jimbo. Williams' love of art drove him to create the series, in which the curious, young dinosaur embarks on a series of amazing adventures and learns important life lessons in the process. The artistically inclined Williams had refined his passion for drawing and painting at Canada's Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario. Finding a creative outlet in poetry and painting while working as a forest ranger for five years after dropping out of Sheridan College, Williams set his goals to leave the forest as a stand-up comic and actor, soon moving to Los Angeles to pursue his newfound calling.

Williams is cousin to Barenaked Ladies keyboardist Kevin Hearn, and together they have a hobby band called The Cousins.

La famille Addams, qui vivait jusque-là retranchée dans leur demeure, juchée en haut d’une colline brumeuse du New Jersey, se prépare à recevoir des membres éloignés encore plus étranges qu’eux à l’occasion de la Mazurka de Pugsley. Une cérémonie aux allures de rite de passage qui doit se dérouler devant la famille au complet et où le jeune garçon doit prouver qu’il est prêt à devenir un véritable mâle Addams. Mais ils ne savent pas que leur voisine du bas de la colline — la décoratrice d’intérieur et animatrice de télévision aux dents longues Margaux Needler — est en train de mettre sur pied un quartier préfabriqué, tout en couleurs pop et en perfection. Quand le brouillard se lève, révélant la demeure des Addams, la sombre bâtisse semble se dresser entre la jeune ambitieuse et son rêve de vendre toutes les maisons du quartier pour devenir la personnalité la plus plébiscitée que la télévision ait jamais créée.
