Gregory Smith as Slick
Canadian-born Gregory Smith has accomplished a lot in his 26 years. As an actor, he has starred in 25 feature films, including “The Patriot,” opposite Mel Gibson and Heath Ledger; “Closing the Ring,” directed by Richard Attenborough which premiered at the 2007 Toronto Film Festival; “Small Soldiers,” opposite Kirsten Dunst and produced by Steven Spielberg; “Nearing Grace,” opposite Jordana Brewster and David Morse which opened the 2005 L.A. Film Festival to critical acclaim; and “Book of Love,” opposite Frances O’Connor and Bryce Dallas Howard and which premiered at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival. Additionally, he has starred in over 100 episodes of television, most notably as the protagonist in The WB’s hit series “Everwood” which aired for four seasons.
Smith is also an accomplished producer and photographer. In 2008, he developed and produced a comedy for Sony Screen Gems, which starred Kenan Thompson, Zachary Levi and Fran Kranz. As a photographer, he travels all over the world photographing the different people he encounters.
As an entrepreneur, Smith co-founded theU.net – an immersive student network that releases high production value, high energy youth oriented video tours of the most popular colleges in the USA. He and his partner raised $1 million to both develop and execute the concept. He also structured a deal co-branding theU.net with AOL Time Warner subsidiary, The WB. He will launch his next technology startup company imminently.
Last year, he starred in Reginald Harkema’s “Leslie, My Name is Evil” which had its world premiere at the 2009 Toronto Film Festival. The movie was released in Canada in May.
2010 has been a busy year for Smith. In Jim Sheridan’s “Dream House,” Greg stars opposite Daniel Craig as the gothic young man who is obsessed with the unsolved murders of Craig’s family. In Chaz Thorne’s “Whirligig,” he plays the lead “Nicholas” in a coming of age story about a lost young man whose shameless lies lead him all the way to discovering the truth. Greg also filmed a segment of Josh Stolberg’s anthology film “Conception.” In the film, Greg stars with Julie Bowen as one of nine couples dealing with sex, love and the almost inevitable consequence: pregnancy. Most recently, he filmed “Hobo With a Shotgun” which was directed by Jason Eisner.
Greg can next be seen starring as “Dov Epstein” in the new ABC/Global television series “Rookie Blue.” This series follows a group of recent graduates from the police academy as they try to navigate their ways as rookie officers. The show will premiere simultaneously in Canada and the U.S. June 24, 2010. Smith currently splits his time between Los Angeles and Toronto.
