The Canadian Cousin
Although is first professional role was in 2005 in Cheaper By The Dozen 2, it was just last week I was introduced the beautiful Robbie Amell. While flicking the dials, I stopped on Hot In Cleveland, a show I usually choose to skip. The cast is appealing enough, but for some reason I groan, more than laugh, at the little I have seen. But a brief scene with Valerie Bertinelli being romanced by a young doctor (Amell) had be sticking through the entire 30 minutes.
It is funny that sometimes when you see an actor, you suddenly see them everywhere. After the sit-com, it seemed Amell was everywhere, especially in the promo's for the upcoming CW series The Tomorrow People. The series, which premieres in October, follows a group of people with special powers. CW is scheduling the show to follow Arrow in the fall.
This will mean we will two hours of Amell Anatomy come Autumn. Although born in Michigan, Robbie spent much of his childhood in Toronto where his cousin Stephen Amell (Arrow) also lived and worked. The CW has been a good landing strip from actors coming down north of the border and The Tomorrow People looks like a vehicle which could propel another Amell into the spotlight.
