Chad Rook is a man of many talents who plays to those strengths. The 35-year-old actor from Alberta has been in many popular shows over the years, such as Supernatural and The Flash. Rook has even covered other aspects of filmmaking besides acting, like directing and producing other films in multiple genres from comedy to drama. In terms of his work schedule, Rook has a sufficient amount on his plate and never feels that he should stop.
For Dana Gaier, voice acting originally didn’t seem like something she’d be suited for. “I never really thought that my voice was unique or distinct,” Gaier said. “Until my agent started sending me out for voiceover auditions.” Gaier has provided the voice for Edith in all three Despicable Me films, and she’s found voice acting to be something she really enjoys. She said that for the first film in the series, it was mostly a combination of excitement and anxiety throughout her recording sessions.
Ah, yes it’s summer (as if you already didn’t know). While it may be the perfect time to head to the beach and soak in some Vitamin D, it’s also the time to binge watch as much on Netflix while you can. Squeeze in all you can before the Fall TV series sneak their way back and before school starts again so that way you could be in the loop on all conversations. Whether you’re a first time binge watcher or you’re the type of person glued to Netflix, here’s what you need to see. Time to get cozy! We put an asterisk next to our picks.
While it does show improvement from the previous film, the fifth installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean series proves that some studios will keep beating a dead horse or, in this case, a dead pirate, for money.
This film brings back the old swashbuckling gang of Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp), Captain Hector Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush), and their lovably dim-witted pirate crew and introduces young newcomers, Henry (Brenton Thwaites) and Carina (Kaya Scodelario) into the mix. There’s also the new mythic villain of the film, the ghostly Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem).
It wasn’t long ago that Netflix made its way into our homes via DVD deliveries. These days, we are flooded with options available at the tip of our fingers which is a double edged convenience.

Fear not, fellow Netflixers! We have put together a short list of some of our favorite documentaries that are available now. These films are sure to please, whether you are an artistic soul, a true crime fanatic or a music buff!
Paterson was released late in 2016 and flew under the radar, but is certainly not a film to miss! It depicts the everyday life of a blue collar poet, beginning on a Monday.
