Fred first became known to the Canadian public on a daily basis as host of 161 episodes of Mailbag and Movieweek for Superchannel, the first Canadian Pay TV channel. These brief infomercials played nationwide several times a day. His job was to explain to a skeptical public the advantages of the then-innovative concept of discretionary television viewing... having the consumer (viewer) plan, pick, and pay for specific movies and special programs.
Fred played nasty Vancouver City Councilor Jack Pierce for four seasons on CBC's DaVinci's Inquest and in the one and only season of DaVinci City Hall. He has had principal or guest star roles on The X-Files, Millennium, Criminal Minds, Dead Zone, Supernatural, Dark Angel, Battlestar Galactica, The 4400 and other television series. His feature film appearances include principal roles in Slapshot 2, Air Bud III, Final Destination, Santa Clause 2 and Walking Tall.
