Orphan Black's Kristian Bruun proudly runs 'the gamut of masculinity'
Orphan Black fans will recognize Kristian Bruun as schlubby, suburban dad Donnie Hendrix — but there's a lot more to Donnie than a soft underbelly.
"For guys my size they're just happy to see someone on screen like that," he says.
But Brunn has certainly run the gamut of masculinity, from "dadbod" to military boarding school ━ a place he credits for teaching him the art of comedy.
"I quickly saw that those who had a sharp tongue and could diffuse a situation with humour would not only survive but be protected."
Today he joins Shad to discuss how masculinity is depicted in 2016, and the deeper layers of Donnie.
