Chatting with Adrian Holmes and Jared Keeso of Bravo’s 19-2


Everyone likes a great team, and Adrian Holmes and Jared Keeso are just that. The Vancouver boys play the lead characters in Bravo’s new procedural drama 19-2 (a show we wrote about last week), have collaborated tons of times in the past, and, get this, even have the same agent!

Adrian Holmes hails from Wrexham, North Wales, and moved to Canada just before his 5th birthday. Once on Canadian soil, Holmes was introduced to the arts, spending much of his time drawing and performing. He began performing in school plays, all the way from highschool through college. Professionally, Holmes has done a variety of productions, immersing himself equally in the world of film and television. Some notable and recent TV projects include Continuum, Arrow, Motive and True Justice. His numerous film credits include Elysium, The Cabin in the Woods and Red Riding Hood.

Jared Keeso was born in Listowel, Ontario, and currently resides in Vancouver. Keeso has done numerous projects over the years, but is best known for portraying hockey commentator Don Cherry in Keep Your Head Up, Kid: The Don Cherry Story, a biographical 2-part television mini-series from the CBC about the legend. He reprised his role in the sequel, The Wrath of Grapes: The Don Cherry Story II. Keeso’s television credits include Falling Skies, True Justice and Psych. His film credits include Elysium, The Marine 3: Homefront and the upcoming, highly anticipated remake of Godzilla.

19-2 airs Wednesday at 9e on Bravo.
