Appearing All Weekend
Kim Coates is a Canadian actor, born on February 21, 1958 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and best known for his role as Alexander 'Tig' Trager in Sons of Anarchy. Growing up Coates never expressed an interest to pursue mainstream acting. He went to the University of Saskatchewan and it was not until he enrolled himself in a drama elective there, that he realized he wanted to become an actor. Prior to that, he had never even seen a play before in his life.
Coates was shortly offered the role of Stanley Kowalski in “A Streetcar Named Desire” and became the youngest actor to play the role of Macbeth in the Stratford Festival in his hometown. Since then, he has been involved in more than 50 plays. He kickstarted his career in the movie industry in 1986, when he was offered a role in the movie, “The Boy in Blue”. Despite the fact that he had a minor part in the film, it still paved Coates’ way into the entertainment business.
His big break came in 1991 when he was offered a part in the movie, “The Last Boy Scout”.
Following that, he appeared in, “Innocent Blood” and “The Client” by Warner Bros; both of which proved to be successful.
Some of Kim’s other works include, “Black Hawk Down” which was directed by Ridley Scott and “Pearl Harbor”, directed by Michael Bay. Both the movies were successful and received Academy Awards. Coates also appeared in the television show, “Entourage”, in the role of Carl Ertz, a shady film producer. His return to the show was the result of direct requests by the audiences who loved his performance in the previous seasons. He also appeared in the television show, “CSI Miami”. Following this, he was also offered to guest star in various major television shows some of which include, “CSI”, “CSI NY”, “Prison Break” and “Cold Case”. With his vast experience and work in television shows, he was awarded a Gemini nomination for “Best Actor in Supporting Role” for his work in, “Dead Silence”. His work in, “The Outer Limits” also earned him a nomination for, “Best Performance in Guest Role”.
Coates decided to make the transition from acting to producing and subsequently in 2007; he produced and acted in the movie, “The Poet”. The movie won awards for “Best Picture” and “Best Director” at the New York Staten Island Film Festival. Coates was honoured with the “Half Life Achievement Award” for his work as an actor, in 2009 at the AOF International Film Festival held in Pasadena. Some of his other awards include “Best Actor” award for his role of Steve Serrano in “King of Sorrow”.
In 2010, Coates appeared in the movie, “Resident Evil Afterlife” which proved to be a huge hit. The next big project that came Coates’s way was in 2012 when he appeared in the comic movie, “Goon” with Seann William Scott, Jay Baruchel and Liev Schreiber. The movie earned him a nomination for “Best Performance in a Supporting Role” at the Canadian Screen Awards in 2013. The movie was also appreciated by both the audiences and critics.
Despite his success in the film and TV industry, Coates is probably still best known for his role in the smash-hit TV show by FX, “Sons of Anarchy” where he played the violent but big-hearted Alexander "Tig" Trager.
