As many of you probably already know, Keir is a 19-year-old Canadian actor best known for his portrayal of of Marshall Gregson on Showtime’s now-defunct “United States of Tara”. As with everything on the show, Marshall’s coming to grips with his own sexual identity over the course of three seasons — and what it means in terms of relationship options — is overshadowed by having to cope with and support the insanity of his mother. Keir’s portrayal of a gay teen, whose personal struggles are forced to be secondary to those of his mother’s, is touching and feels very honest. He also recently appeared in the lead role in the dark comedy “It’s Kind of a Funny Story”, opposite Zach Galifanakis and Emma Roberts. It is a quirky, yet definitely entertaining film about a boy who temporarily commits himself to a psychiatric ward and his experiences there.
