That's a shame.

Watched so many Canadian films and TV productions with him in it. He was great in Whale Music (won a Genie) and enjoyed him in a few Egoyan films.

I always thought it was cool that throughout his career he kept moving around between film and TV work on Canadian and US productions.

Oh man, that blows. He was way too young to die, dammit.

Boiling water soaked into a grit faster in his kitchen than anywhere else on the face of the earth.

Who could forget his iconic turn as Huey, River Rat Leader in the seminal Meatballs III: Summer Job?

Wow, I had a major misread of the title. I misread it as Macaulay Culkin.

It seems he had kidney problems.

Most recently saw him in Blindness with Julianne Moore. He had quite a prolific career.

Terrible news. I really enjoyed his guest appearances on "Entourage".
