Earlier today I was doing some prep work for the podcast and noticed on the Fifty Shades of Grey IMDB page that there was a new cast member listed (Either that or I’m losing my mind). Tom Butler will be playing the WSU President.
I know, the University President isn’t a big part, but I was curious when I checked out his IMDB page and realized he was a very busy actor! I guess with all the work in Vancouver the last few years, being a Canadian helps him get work.
So what has he been in? Highlander, X-Files, Stargate SG-1, Smallville, Flight 93, Shooter, Snakes on a Plane, Freddy vs Jason, Josie and the Pussycats, and Fringe
Something that I’m noticing is that a couple members of the cast were in the show Smallville. I never saw the show, so for all I know there were a ton of actors and actresses in it. Or, it’s where they network and is the gateway to Fifty Shades of Grey.
It’s nice to see another very experienced actor in the film, happy to have Tom on board.
