Biography

Très jeune, il déménage au Canada et grandit à Toronto. Grand sportif, il s’illustre dans le domaine de l’athlétisme et de la natation : il fait même partie de l’équipe de natation nationale junior canadienne. Mais il devra abandonner le sport de haut niveau à cause d’une blessure au cou. Il se tourne alors vers la comédie et obtient le premier rôle dans un court métrage : Can I Get a Witness ?, présenté au festival international du film de Toronto en 1996. Puis, il obtient le rôle principal dans le film Kitchen Party.

On le retrouve par la suite à la télévision américaine dans la série Felicity, dans laquelle il interprète le rôle de Ben Covington. Après la série qui l'a révélé, le comédien reprend sa carrière au cinéma avec le film Duos d’un jour, aux côtés de Gwyneth Paltrow. Puis il joue un flic novice qui collabore avec des ripoux dans Dark Blue sorti en 2002. Un an plus tard, il se transforme en loup-Garou dans Underworld de Len Wiseman.

A veteran of World War II, Edwin Boyd (Scott Speedman) is disillusioned and barely getting by as a Toronto bus driver. With his wife Doreen (Kelly Reilly), whom he met in England during the war, and two young children to support, he finds it increasingly difficult to make ends meet. Adding to his dissatisfaction, Boyd has deep, unfulfilled dreams of making it as a star in Hollywood, a desire frowned upon by his retired policeman father (Brian Cox). Cox’s portrayal shows a man who disapproves of his son’s life and terrible decisions but is made more poignant by his sad attempts to maintain a father-son relationship.

The film opens with a Spartan elder inspecting an ugly, talking baby (an ogre from Shrek the Third); it is abandoned to die for its deformity. A second baby, who is Vietnamese, is adopted by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Baby Leonidas is then inspected, having a six-pack, biceps and beard from birth. He is accepted as a Spartan and prepared for kinghood through his childhood training, from fighting his grandmother to enduring torture (a la Casino Royale). Leonidas (Sean Maguire) is then cast out into the wild, and survives the harsh winter and a gangsta penguin (Happy Feet). Returning a king for his inauguration wearing a penguin skin hat, Leonidas sees Margo (Carmen Electra) erotically dancing and asks her to marry him, to which she responds by giving him the combination to her chastity belt.
