When you were growing up, you may have dreamed of having an awesome tree house. Mike Holmes did too — so he built one when he was a kid. He also rewired his family's house. Oh, and finished their basement by the time he was 12.
We kick off the week with Mike, whose new book is called The Holmes Manual.
First up, it's Missy Peregrym, who stars as Officer Andy McNally in the hit cop show Rookie Blue.
Then British marine-turned-actor Lance Corporal Cassidy Little joins George to talk about his transition to acting — and The Two Worlds of Charlie F., a play about the cost of war in which he plays the title role.
You may find yourself looking at Tom Wilkinson and wondering: "Where have I seen him before?" The answer: everywhere, from Batman Begins to Shakespeare In Love. His latest is the Australian crime drama Felony, in which he plays a veteran cop impliated in a cover-up.
Adam Driver plays one of the most divisive characters on TV — Lena Dunham's loyal, frustrated and decidedly odd boyfriend on Girls. The former U.S. Marine also stars alongside Daniel Radcliffe in the smart new Canadian film The F Word (also known as What If), and is slated to appear in Star Wars: Episode VII.
After that, it's Against Me! singer Laura Jane Grace, who made headlines in 2012 when she came out as a transgender woman in 2012 in a Rolling Stone article. The band's latest album is Transgender Dysphoria Blues, and she talks to George about that experience.
Jake Gyllenhaal made his name with this the cult classic Donnie Darko and earned A-list fame by the time he was in Brokeback Mountain. In Enemy, his latest film, Gyllenhaal plays a man who fights against his own doppelganger. Cas Anvar will also be on this episode to teach us something about Canada.
