19 Jul 2017 Mireia || Ghost Wars, News, Tv

Syfy has made a deal for Ghost Wars, a paranormal action series that will reteam the network with Van Helsing producer Nomadic Pictures. Vincent D’Onofrio, Kim Coates, Avan Jogia, Kristin Lehman and Meatloaf topline the 13-episode series, which like Van Helsing will premiere in the U.S. on Syfy and elsewhere globally on Netflix. A 2017 bow is planned.[..]

Ghost Wars is not just a contemporary homage to classic psychological horror, it’s also an opportunity to tell stories about human politics and how we shape our beliefs and lives based on our individual perspectives and biases,” Barry said. “Science, Humanism, Religion and the Paranormal all get a seat at the table. I’m grateful that Chad Oakes and Mike Frislev have assembled such a wealth of talent, both in front of and behind the camera, to hopefully elevate this genre series beyond expectations.”

04 Dec 2016 Mireia || Conventions, Interview, Officer Downe, Public, Videos

In the world of cinema, there are certain actors and roles that fit one another like a glove, especially within genre entertainment. Much like Robert Englund and John Jarratt inhabited the roles of Freddy Krueger and Mick Taylor with the greatest of ease, the same can be said of Kim Coates and the titular protagonist of M. Shawn Crahan’s OFFICER DOWNE. Produced by Mark Neveldine of the chaotic film duo Neveldine/Taylor, OFFICER DOWNE is ultraviolent, over-the-top, and fun as hell, and at last month’s New York Comic Con, FANGORIA spoke to Coates about taking on his most kick-ass role to date!

For those unfamiliar, here’s the official synopsis for the OFFICER DOWNE…

16 Aug 2016 Mireia || Interview

Actor and Saskatoon native Kim Coates can’t wait for a night of frolicking with rock band One Bad Son on Saturday night at the Capitol Music Club. The event will raise money for Creative Kids, and VIP tickets will offer the chance to hang out with the Sons of Anarchy star. The Saskatoon StarPhoenix caught up with Coates to learn why Creative Kids is important, how his career is faring post-Sons, and why Las Vegas is a tough place to be. This interview has been condensed and edited.

Q: How did you get involved with Creative Kids?
A: Creative Kids I hold very dear to my heart for many reasons, but mainly because it’s a Saskatchewan non-profit, charity organization that tries to give back to all these incredible boys and girls that maybe don’t have the financial wherewithal to take acting classes or singing or dancing.

Q: To be clear — are you performing with One Bad Son, or just taking in the show?
A: Do you think I can sing, Jonathan? Do you think I can actually play a freaking guitar?
