These days, however, the 35-year-old Canadian actor is starring on The CW's Nikita -- and he's about to be a dad.
Sawa broke the news on Sunday, tweeting a photo of his nursery.

Sawa's rep confirmed the tweet on Monday, noting that the actor and his wife, Dawni, were expecting a boy.
"The baby is due the first week of January," the rep said.
"Thanks for all the well wishes. We are very excited," Sawa said in a later tweet.
