"...an astonishing performance by John Emmet Tracy... With his sublime agility with words and voice, and a beguiling physical presence, somehow Tracy makes it all darkly amusing... Tracy is one of those rare actors who could recite the phone book— if we still had them."
Colin ThomasThe Georgia Straight
"Because John Emmet Tracy is alert to every nuance of the language, including its dark humour, his performance is a miracle of detail— and gamesome sexiness. Everybody who loves acting should see this piece of work."
Ann ForryCasting Director
"Top notch actor, unbelievable!"
David C. JonesThe Charlebois Post
"John Emmet Tracy is so dynamic that he makes the sociopathic killer repulsive and likable at the same time."
Los Angeles Times
"A comic standout"
Jo LedingamThe Vancouver Courier
"John Emmet Tracy is so wired in performance it’s as if electricity is coursing through his veins; he’s a live wire sparking, twisting and jolting in arcs of violence."
Los Angeles Times
"A standout portrayal by John Emmet Tracy"
"...actor John Emmet Tracy consistently delivers a passionate, thoughtful and honest portrayal...He retains a hint of humor and cultivates sincere relationships..."
The Arizona Republic

The Milwaukee Sentinel
"A superbly understated performance..."
"A splendid performance...downright hilarious"
"Nobody could've played the part better"
"His style is that of a very controlled sense of character and direction..."
"He is the character - winsome, exuberant and sensitive"
"He is the best actor in the world!"
I’ll be appearing in an upcoming episode of the multiple Emmy Award-winning horror-fantasy series R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour. The episode “Lotsa Luck” (season 4, episode 7) gave me the opportunity to work once again with director James Head, with whom I worked on an episode of Stephen King’s The Dead Zone.
I am in the current episode (#307: “Waning Minutes”) of the multiple award-winning series Continuum. It airs on Showcase(in Canada) and on SyFy (in the U.S. and the U.K.). I was thrilled to once again have the chance to work with multi-talented Amanda Tapping who directed this episode and with whom I acted a couple of years ago in an episode of Sanctuary.
