Paul Campbell stars in Preggoland


Happy Birthday to Canadian actor Paul Campbell, who turns 36 years old today! Why not celebrate by checking out his most recent feature, the Canadian comedy, Preggoland - you’ll be glad you did. Released on May 8 this year and directed by Jacob Tierney, this comedy has even more going for it than it’s punny title.

In Preggoland, Ruth (Sonja Bennett), is an immature thirty-five year old who has been ostracized by her friends. She buys the most expensive stroller and gets mistaken for being pregnant. When this misunderstanding leads to job security and a cute guy she meets (Paul Campbell), she decides to run with it. Campbell plays the love interest, who is most known for his roles in Battlestar Galactica, as well as Spun Out and Rusty Steel.

The film also stars Danny Trejo and James Caan, who are some of the most recognizable actors in the film. The film had its world premiere on September 5, 2014 in the Special Presentations section at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival. Preggoland was also screened at the Vancouver International Film Festival, Cinéfest Sudbury International Film Festival and Calgary International Film Festival.
