    Eric Peterson's decent portrayal of his characters has been key tot eh shows he's acted in such as street legal and corner gas. Street legal one of the all time canadian greats would never have made it off the ground had it not been for Eric Peterson's amazing portrayal of Leon Robinovich. He portrayed his role of Leon Robinovich to the finest deatail and as though Leon Robinovich was a real charachter. Yet he is so professional that we see him play a completely different Oscar Leroy on the show Corner Gas. Eric Peterson's talent and liveliness are admirable and remarakable. A world class actor!moreless
