The prolific McKellar wrote the book for the multiple Tony award winning musical The Drowsy Chaperone (with Bob Martin), co-wrote, buytadalafilonline20mg with director Francois Girard, the Genie award winning Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould and The Red Violin.

McKellar has a hefty trophy shelf that includes awards for his work on Twitch City, Atom Egoyanai??i??s Exotica, Prairie Giant: The Tommy Douglas Story, and the venerated series Slings and Arrows. In 2011, McKellar and Martin created the critically acclaimed TV sitcom, Michael: Tuesdays and Thursdays starring Martin and Matt Watts (The Newsroom, Slings and Arrows). An international star, McKellar still manages to retain those charming Canuck qualities of self-deprecating humour and deadpan wit.
