  • Very diverse and extremely talented.

    Dan Payne is the father, John MacLeod, on CTV's "Alice, I Think", and this review is based mostly on that role.

    Dan Payne plays John extremely well; he's the grown up hippy who never really grew up, and is dependant on his wife to support him while he "does his own thing." He's a laid-back character, and likes to drink beer and listen to music. His parenting skills are somewhat lacking, but his wife is always there to help out. In reading his biography, it seems that Dan is extremely talented in other areas as well; having had a few careers before his acting began. It's amazing all that he's done. He should be in more shows.moreless
