Reardon became a fan favorite with his supporting roles in the Wayansʼ brothers hit film “White Chicks” and slasher comedy “Scary Movie 4.” He also made his mark in the film world with a role in the blockbuster film “Tron: Legacy” with Jeff Bridges and Olivia Wilde.
Reardon played the role of Blake Laviolette for the three seasons of “Arctic Air” on CBC. Set in Yellowknife, the series portrays renegade bush pilots at work and play in Canada’s north.
