Canadian Actor Bingo! is a multifandom vid that illustrates a phenomenon familiar to many multifannish viewers of American genre television produced in the 1990s and 2000s: the same actors, all Canadian, reappearing as guest stars in a wide variety of American television shows. (From a production standpoint, the phenomenon is caused by the growth of the film industry in Vancouver, where television is less costly to produce than it is in Los Angeles.)

The vid includes clips of each actor in several roles, ending with a montage devoted to Callum Keith Rennie, known to his fans for appearing in a ludicrous number of shows and films (many of dubious quality).

Premiered at Vividcon 2007.
