David Sutcliffe, pictured above as detective Aidan Black in a publicity still from the CBC series, Cracked. When he was young, Sutcliffe was only interested in sports but while playing on the University of Toronto basketball team he suffered a terrible back injury that ended any hope of a career as an athlete. Turns out his roommate was a budding playwright looking for actors. Sutcliffe auditioned and ended up being a successful actor with a degree in English literature. Moving to New York, he broke into television acting by doing commercials. He played the role of Christopher Hayden in 37 episodes of Gilmore Girls between 2001 and 2007. He returned to that role in the 2016 mini-series, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.
