Corin Nemec is probably best known for his role as Jonas Quinn in Stargate SG-1 and as Christian Campbell in Supernatural. This amazing actor has also appeared in the 90’s classic teen sitcom Parker Lewis Can’t Lose as Parker Lewis, in Smallville as Jude Royce and in many more great productions.
Stargate SG-1 fans will remember Corin Nemec as Jonas Quinn, the Langaran scientist with a mind that works as smoothly and consistently as a clockwork. A beautiful asset to the Stargate team. Even the audience seemed to like it. Not an easy task when you know that his character had to fill the hole that the beloved Michael Shanks left when leaving the series at the end of season 5. That requires serious skills.
If you’d like to see him shine in a lead role, then we can recommend watching Parker Lewis Can’t Lose, a 90’s teen sitcom that has launched his acting career. And if you’re willing to dive deep into movie history, the cult classics MosquitoMan/Mansquito (2005) and Sand Sharks (2012) are quite cool in their own way. But the list of Corin Nemec’s achievements doesn’t stop there.
