Jon Cor is a twenty something year-old living himself to death in Toronto, ON.
He booked his first audition for a major film franchise while courting multiple agencies at the end of the second year of the Theatre Arts and Performance program at Fanshawe College in London, ON.
He may or may not have graduated.
Since then he has won roles on the hit TV series Degrassi: The Next Generation, Twisted Pictures’ Saw 3D and Zed Filmworks’ The Boy She Met Online. Currently (August 2011), Jon is working on SyFy’s Being Human (US) in Montreal, Quebec, E4’s Beaver Falls (UK) just outside of Stellenbosch, South Africa and voicing Brick – a cartoon character – on Teletoon’s Total Drama Island.
He is also a writer, a martial artist/acrobat, musician and – with great relief – no longer a Ford model.
His ambitions include publishing his first novel (In Heat), which was originally drafted when he was just nineteen years old, and a collection of short stories (A Murder of Prose).
His short stories, novel excerpts, poetry, essays and reviews have been published internationally – both online and in print – in literary journals such as Black Heart Magazine, Citizen Brooklyn, Mad Swirl, Literati, Haggard & Halloo and phati’tude; an award-winning New York-based publication at which he once contributed regularly as a columnist.
