Since Greene is a Canadian actor who has worked in Canadian theater, this is a nice touch. Slings and Arrows is another show that has met my made-up standard for inclusiveness. Namely, if you have 100 characters with speaking parts, make one of them a Native.

The real point
Actually, this posting is just an excuse for me to rave about Slings and Arrows. Here's a brief review from Amazon.com:
Author: cotswoldcutie from United States
You can tell that this TV show came out of a country other the the US because it's so well acted, very funny and just plain brilliant. It's unashamedly aimed at adults with IQs over 10. I've been a huge fan of Stephen Ouimette for years so I expected nothing but the best from him, but what a pleasant surprise to find this show chock a block with actors who actually can act. I watched the first two seasons straight through the night purring like a cat with a saucer of cream. It's great fun seeing how the theatre works behind the scenes--at last a show with a unique theme, original ideas and clever writing. I hope this one lasts and lasts.

Completely agree with you about Slings and Arrows.
