If you don’t know who Jared Keeso is yet you better check yourself. Jared blew fans and critics away when he starred as Don Cherry in the CBC biopic Keep Your Head Up Kid, The Don Cherry Story in 2010.
“Jared Keeso’s performance as Don Cherry is so convincing it will have you using partial sentences for the rest of the 2011.” – Jordan, The Whole Ball of Wax
“Keep Your Head up Kid, The Don Cherry Story- starring Jared Keeso, is the most compelling hockey film since D2: The Mighty Ducks – starring Emilo Estevez, and the best biographical film since A Coal Miners Daughter – starring Sissy Spacek.” – Josh, Coming Up Sports
Jared’s portrayal of Don Cherry earned him the award for Best Actor at the 2010 Gemini Awards.
So with that being said we at TNTS are thrilled to announce that Jared is currently back in Manitoba filming the sequal to this TV mini-series.
The follow-up film chronicles Don Cherry’s journey into the world of Broadcasting. Along with Jared, Sarah Manninen will be reprising her role as Rose Cherry as well as Steven McHattie as the memorable Eddie Shore.
Jared has been spending a lot of extra time in the makeup chair this time around as Don entered the broadcasting scene a few years before Jared was even born. Despite the age difference Jared is knocking this one out of the park.
We will keep you posted on when you can catch the sequel on CBC!
