    Awesome actor, he doesn’t get as much credit as he deserves.

    I remember seeing him on Road to Avonlea years ago and thinking how amazing he was. I’m glad they’re honoring him.

    Bruce Greenwood is a wonderful guy and one of my all time favorite interviews. Check out our chat for his latest movie “Barney’s Version.” He had me laughing the entire time!!!

    He should have come to Canada to get his award. Why are we sending people down there??? Well either way, I think he is a very good actor and is deserved too.
