Wesley is a busy multifaceted performer who is also set to release his new single ‘Never Have I Ever’, under his stage name Wes Mack.
Multi-talented actor/musician/director Wesley MacInnes finds himself caught in the middle of a gang war in the upcoming revenge-driven feature film COLD PURSUIT starring Liam Neeson, Laura Dern, and Emmy Rossum. COLD PURSUIT, an action thriller infused with irreverent humor, stars Liam Neeson as Nels Coxman, a family man whose quiet life with his wife (Laura Dern) is upended following the mysterious death of their son. Nels’ search for justice turns into a vengeful hunt for Viking (Tom Bateman), a drug lord he believes is connected to the death. As one by one of Viking’s associates “disappear,” Nels goes from upstanding citizen to ice-cold vigilante, letting nothing — and no one — get in his way.
Summit Entertainment presents, StudioCanal presents, a Mas production – a Paradox Films production. Cold Pursuit opens nationwide on February 8th, 2019.
Wesley plays Dante in the film – an overly ambitious young man who crosses the wrong men and is pulled into a gruesome chain of events. Wesley and the rest of the cast and crew faced the elements in the dead of winter while filming large portions of COLD PURSUIT on location at Fortress Mountain (the same location used for the Leonardo DiCaprio’s The Revenant). Wesley acts alongside Liam Neeson and Michael Richardson, as well as a large and eclectic cast of actors.
During one of the more pivotal scenes in the film, Wesley and Neeson square off in a very forceful exchange. “From the moment I met Liam, he was just so present both on and off set. He brings a blinding intensity to every single take and just gives so much. We knew there was a lot of gravity to the moments we were playing and it was a pleasure working through them with him,” says Wesley.
Most recently, Wesley appeared on the small screen in the hit CW show DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, playing up his Irish heritage, and hamming it up as a cheeky leprechaun hanging out with Marilyn Monroe in a 1962 Las Vegas Casino. Other recent notable roles include a villain in the 2017 feature film Power Rangers.
Wesley pours his passion for performing into every role. He has a long list of television credits that include: iZombie, Motive, The 100, Supernatural, Continuum, Smallville, Heartland andThe Vampire Diaries. He has also taken on roles in feature films, including: Magic Beyond Words: The JK Rowling Story, A Dog Named Christmas, Girl House, and The Phantoms.

As a musician, MacInnes is widely recognized by his stage name Wes Mack. His debut album, Edge of the Strom, yielded four top 20 singles, 9 CCMA Award Nominations and has had its tracks spun over 7 million times. Mack has toured with Shania Twain across the nation on her “Rock This Country” tour, performing her hit “Party For Two” with her each night. In 2018, Mack released House on Fire, the lead single from his upcoming sophomore album. The song has been spun over 2 million times and kicked off a summer of performances alongside acts like Eric Church, Luke Combs, and Midland. Also in 2018, Mack directed the powerful music video for multiple CCMA and JUNO Award-winning artist Jess Moskaluke on her top 10 smash hit Camouflage. Mack is now poised to release Never Have I Ever(featuring Sons of Daughters – finalists on CTV’s hit show The Launch), a sweeping slow-burning anthem that is reminiscent of the records of Eric Church, The Brothers Osborne, and Fleetwood Mac.
Wesley is a Calgary native, who currently resides in Vancouver, where he continues to expand his ever-growing resume of impressive credits. From the largest stages and arenas to the director’s chair, from writing hit songs to creating characters as an actor; Wesley has established himself as a creative force of many forms.
