Mike Paterson – Playing the Mob Boss, our villain.
It’s very likely you have seen or heard Mike before without even realizing it. His résumé is so full of comedy, music, film, TV, theatre, and commercial work, it’s a little bit intimidating. He’s a fourteen time Just For Laughs comedian, hosts live shows at Comedy Works in Montreal every Tuesday, and you can catch him on CBC Saturday mornings as the supermarket “Grosser” Mr. Gross on the children’s game show Surprise! It’s Edible Incredible! He’s appeared in the SyFy Network series Being Human, the Bob Dylan film I’m Not There and TV commercials for Rona and Cage aux Sports. The guy on the radio touting how cheap and convenient it is to buy cases of beer or Red Bull from Couche-Tard? Yeah, that’s probably Mike, too. Check him out at mikepaterson.ca

As the Writer / Director of this film, this story is something that I am incredibly passionate about. It's genesis started years ago as a crazy idea for a story that turned into a script for a screenwriting class. It's Fight Club meets A Fish Called Wanda, a dark comedy about a fish that goes missing that focuses on the characters surrounding the fish, plunging you into a surreal world of illegal betting, organized crime, and kidnapping all over a tiny swimming fish.
