|Originally thought to be some bad meat from his father's cooking, fetus Aaron refused to be washed away by the Alka-Seltzer and went on to spend ten and a half glorious months in his mother's womb. It was then that he first felt the warmth of the limelight. He knew at the ripe young age of negative zero, that he would one day go on and become ... an actor. It was in this stage, in this womb, that he was the show, he was the center of attention and coincidentally the center of his mother. |
Aaron was born in New Westminster on a beautiful summer day in the evening of August 8th and then again on the morning of August 23rd to the amazing woman Arlene Elliott. Arlene would go on four years later to write the sequel for Aaron, Christopher John. Christopher, mainly known for his athletic prowess (known as Chris "pretty good moves for a big man" Douglas), would taunt his older brother and use his quickness and cat like bounding ability to escape the wrath and flying objects launched by Aaron. After escaping from that infernal Bastille Aaron went on to further glory with such memorable performances of "Toddler slipper wearer," "pre-school toy monitor," "8 year old rides bus by himself," and the unforgettable "The goalie has to pee but there is 7 minutes left in the second."
After leaving the Lower Mainland as a cagey veteran of 10 human years Aaron continued his teacher/parental torture in the 1 1/3 horse town of Creston, BC. There, Aaron's acting career really got started when after burning down a house he stood with matches and gasoline in hand and told the firemen, "It wasn't me." This tremendous performance was but a preview to his "12 year old caught riding dirt bike on road." After the RCMP officer made his expected u-turn, he came upon a stone faced Aaron pushing his Kawasaki 80 along the side of the road while explaining to the officer that it must have been someone else that he saw, as Aaron would never disobey the law nor would he besmirch his good name by lying to the police. This Golden Globe performance won Aaron his freedom and a stern warning that should he ever see that other boy riding on the road again he was to tell him to stop and report the incident to the police. Aaron saw that boy many times after that but never turned him in.
In high school, Aaron continued his stellar play in the nets playing Ron Hextall and Billy Smith in what was really the first real life reality show that could have been named, "Get out of my crease or I will break your ankle." On stage Aaron wowed the audience with such breakthrough performances as greaser number 2 in the Prince Charles Secondary Schools production of Grease. He followed that up with the memorable (to his mom) adaptation of "Oh you were that guy?!?" in The Pajama Game at the same institution. After he moved his parents to Kelowna for his 12th grade year so his father, Michael Douglas, could take a teaching position at the university, Aaron did his best to create an atmosphere that would ultimately lead to the quitting of the drama teacher at KLO Secondary School. His solo performances with the police continued throughout his most senior year and were some of his strongest work. There was "not my car," "I wasn't driving," "who would burn that in to the field?," "my face feels shiny," and the exceptionally played "She wouldn't have been pregnant if the truck wasn't blue."
After high school, Aaron spent several years pretending to be someone else. He was a floor layer, a video store attendant, a computer software marketer, and a sports nutrition marketer and rep. All of these jobs and the inordinate amount of time that Aaron spent watching television ultimately led him back to his true talent and profession: lying to those around him. So Aaron quit all of his jobs and went to the William B. Davis Center for the one-year full time program and supplemented his student loan by telling customers at Earl's on Robson that the food is the best and then bringing it to their tables. Once again Aaron's skills of deception came to the fore. (Actually, Aaron's skills were so sharply honed that he still eats at earls very regularly.)
After acting school, Aaron wandered into the world and began his life as a full time fooler. When asked to reflect on the path that his career has taken Aaron simply replied, "My cats breath smells like cat food." Cat food indeed, Aaron. Cat food indeed.
