Another major role was his portrayal of Brian Curtis, a crooked cop, in the popular, award-winning Canadian series Da Vinci's Inquest. He reprises the role of Brian Curtis in the 2006 sequel series, Da Vinci's City Hall. He appeared as Steven Lefkowitz in the short-lived jPod and in several episodes of The L Word. Recent appearances include the Canadian series Flashpoint, where he plays Ed Lane's brother Roy, as John Pope on Falling Skies, and in Sanctuary, where he plays the husband of a biologist friend of Henry Foss.
