Wesley is currently filming with Liam Neeson for the feature film Hard Powder
Standout Canadian actor/musician Wesley MacInnes continues to make a name for himself on both screen and stage. In a newly imagined version of the wildly popular hit series, Power Rangers, Wesley MacInnes (Supernatural, The 100, Smallville) plays a cruel antagonist in denim cut-offs. The first chapter of the film paints its heroes as a group of strangers, without any special powers, going head-to-head with a bunch of high school misfits, helmed by Colt Wallace (MacInnes). He is vindictive and unrelenting as he targets Billy the Blue Ranger (RJ Cyler), menacing him in the confines of the school halls. Power Rangers, which centers on a group of high-school kids with unique superpowers, stars Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott, RJ Cyler, Ludi Lin and Becky G as the Power Rangers. Elizabeth Banks and Bryan Cranston round out the key cast of the film, which is currently playing in theatres worldwide.
Next up for Wesley is a role in the Liam Neeson feature film titled Hard Powder. The project, currently in production in Alberta and British Columbia, Canada, stars Neeson along with veteran actors Laura Dern, Emmy Rossum, and Tom Jackson, and is being directed by Hans Petter Molland.
Wesley pours his passion for performing into every new project. He has a long list of television credits that include: iZombie, Motive, The 100, Supernatural, Continuum, Smallville, Heartland and The Vampire Diaries. He has also taken on roles in films, including: Magic Beyond Words: The JK Rowling Story, A Dog Named Christmas, Girl House, and The Phantoms.
As a musician, MacInnes is widely recognized by his stage name Wes Mack. He has opened for the likes of Florida Georgia Line, Dierks Bentley and Miranda Lambert, and performed with Shania Twain across the nation on her “Rock This Country” farewell tour. Mack broke into the country music scene in 2013 when he released his debut single “Duet”, which reached number nine on the Billboard chart and the video (directed by him) went on to earn two CCMA nominations for Video and Video Director of the Year. Mack continued his successful run behind the camera, directing 11 music videos including four of his own, which earned him multiple CCMA and BCCMA nominations for Music Video and Director of the Year.
2013 also saw Mack win the inaugural CCMA Discovery Program as well as the Unsigned Only Music Competition, besting some 10,000 artists from around the world. Following these milestones, Mack exploded outward in 2015, releasing two top 20 singles and picking up his eighth CCMA nomination. Later that year, Mack released his debut album “Edge of the Storm” which was nominated at the 2016 CCMA awards for Album of the Year and debuted at number four on the iTunes chart. Between festival performances, Mack spent much of 2016 in Nashville writing for his second album, which is currently underway.
Wesley is a Calgary native, who currently resides in Vancouver, where he continues to expand his ever-growing resume of impressive credits. From the largest stages and arenas to the director’s chair, from writing hit songs to creating characters as an actor; Wesley has established himself as a creative force of many forms.
Wesley has worked to give back to a number of institutions to which he owes much of his life. As a young child, MacInnes underwent heart surgery to correct a congenital heart defect. Now, as an adult, he has paired with the Cardiac Kids (in connection with the Sick Kids hospital in Toronto) and the Alberta Children’s Hospital in an effort to raise awareness and money for these organizations.
Wesley MacInnes is available for interviews and photographs upon request.
