His fair looks have made Callum Keith Rennie Canada’s answer to Brad Pitt, but it’s the actor’s dark quality that attracts his ardent fans. Known for playing broody characters, he is best known for his role as a tormented music producer on Californication and as the lead character in Shattered, a police drama about a detective with multiple personalities. His downtown Vancouver loft, like his roles, is layered and full of character. The cement floors are battered, the enamel is chipped, the leather is cracked, and there’s an animal skull here and there. This home is a perfect launching pad for an actor who needs to slip easily between light and dark.
