Douglas Bell

Douglas Bell is featured in the following program(s):

Douglas Bell returns to play Allen, the self-loathing segment producer, and once again to collaborate with Finkleman as a creative consultant on the third season of THE NEWSROOM. Bell is a Toronto-born journalist, film critic, book reviewer, broadcaster and, of late, actor. He was first cast in Finkleman's made-for-television film Escape from the Newsroom and followed as Allen in the season two of The Newsroom.

Bell has spent the bulk of his time over the last fifteen years writing for newspapers and magazines. While he's won a National Magazine Award for humour, he's also tackled difficult subjects with flare and substance, producing a definitive piece on hospital restructuring for Toronto Life Magazine and a wild and colourful ride through the imposition of a capitalist free-market economy in Poland for Saturday Night Magazine, among others. He's also worked for The Irish Times, The Globe and Mail, ROB magazine, The National Post, Toro, Canadian Business, CBC Radio and Television. His first book Run Over (Random House Canada) was short listed for the 2002 City of Toronto Book Award.
