Colin Ferguson is a Canadian actor best known for his starring role as Sheriff Jack Carter in the science fiction television series Eureka, from 2006-2012.
Born in Montreal, Ferguson grew up in Hong Kong, England, Connecticut and Toronto. He got into improv comedy to make money to put himself through McGill University and was a founding member of Detroit's Second City comedy club while still in school.
Ferguson worked in a variety of occupations before he turned to acting full-time. He taught high school when he was only 19, planted 3,000 trees a day in the Canadian north and even worked as a mannequin in store windows.
When he worked for General Electric (parent company of NBC Universal) on the assembly line at several factories, he never imagined that he would work for the company again as an actor.
Ferguson appeared in the romantic comedy Because I Said So, with Diane Keaton and Mandy Moore, and in the television movie The House Next Door opposite Lara Flynn Boyle.
His feature-film credits also include Rowing Through, The Opposite of Sex, Guy in Row Five and The Surprise Party. He was a regular on the NBC remake of the hit British comedy series Coupling and the ABC sitcom Then Came You.
His many guest-starring roles include Line of Fire, Malcolm in the Middle, Crossing Jordan, Becker and Titus.
His love of travel has taken him to exotic destinations around the world.
