Biography

After many years of possessing a face people recognized yet could not put a name to, Colin Ferguson finally became a household name after he starred on the cult sci-fi comedy "Eureka" (Sci Fi Channel, 2006- ). Prior to "Eureka," Ferguson made his living through countless guest spots on Canadian television shows, before he branched out onto American sitcoms like "Malcolm in the Middle" (Fox, 2000-06), hit dramas such as "Crossing Jordan" (NBC, 2001-07), as well as a string of made-for-TV movies. In 2003, it appeared as though Ferguson had found his breakthrough role, as one of the male leads on the hyped new sitcom "Coupling" (NBC, 2003), a frisky look at the always-changing relationships of six singles who are either dating, have previously dated, or looking to date each other. But critics slammed the series for being a weak imitation of "Friends" (NBC, 1994-2004), and "Couplings" was quickly yanked off the air. The resilient Ferguson kept booking TV guest appearances, until he scored the lead role on "Eureka," as an average-minded sheriff living in a haven for scientists and their wacky inventions. Fans of the show loved the actor's onscreen both funny and authoritative persona, giving the veteran actor long overdue respect and adoration.
