TORONTO — Canadian actor Callum Keith Rennie has built a career out of playing very bad men.
With roles including a manipulative cylon on “Battlestar Galactica,” a bad-boy rocker on “Californication,” a serial killer on “Harper’s Island,” and this fall, a Russian mobster on “24,” the rugged performer says it’s good to be bad these days.
“I’ve played it quite a few times,” Rennie admits in a recent interview from Los Angeles, where he was shooting three episodes of “24.”
“(The bad guy) always has lots of twists and turns, right? You don’t get caught into certain styles of having to play it, so I like doing it.”
