Alan Thicke, best known as Jason Seaver on the ABC Growing Pains series, is to be feted by the Whistler Film Festival.
Thicke will receive the Canadian Icon Award at the West Coast resort festival, where he will promote his latest movie, Chris Craddock’s offbeat comedy It’s Not My Fault and I Don’t Care Anyway.
Besides Growing Pains, Thicke, as a songwriter, composed and performed the themes for Facts of Life and Diff’rent Strokes. He also starred in his own reality TV show, Unusually Thicke, alongside wife Tanya and 16-year-old son Carter, and recurred on the CBS comedy How I Met Your Mother.
Thicke, father to “Blurred Lines” singer Robin Thicke as well, will participate in an onstage conversation in Whistler about his career on Dec. 2.
Fest organizers will also honor Canadian filmmaker Deepa Mehta with Whistler’s Trailblazer Award. The Whistler Film Festival runs from Nov. 30 to Dec. 4.
