Originally Aired: 01/31/20 – We give our Best Films of the Decade. We talk with actor Gabriel Darku of October Faction and with actor Nelson Leis of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
We talk with actor Gabriel Darku. Gabriel plays Geoff Allen on the new Netflix series October Faction. We had star J.C. MacKenzie on last week to talk about the show. Now we find out more from the guy that plays his son on the series this week! Gabriel Darku was born in Saint John, New Brunswick and raised in Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories, Canada. Gabriel’s interest in acting started when he was cast in a McDonald’s commercial in 2012. His first big break came when he was cast as a lead role in REBOOT: THE GUARDIAN CODE. Gabriel has appeared in several major film and television productions including SHADOWHUNTERS: THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS, PRIVATE EYES, AMERICAN GODS, SLASHER, and IMPULSE, among others. Coming up next, you can catch Gabriel as Geoff Allen in the new highly anticipated Netflix series OCTOBER FACTION which follows the adventures of a retired monster- hunter and his family.
This episode is one week away from our Tenth Anniversary on the air! As a pre-celebration, we give our picks for the best films we’ve reviewed over the past decade. There have been so many films that we have reviewed, previewed or discussed on the show for interviews it made the selections difficult. However, we both managed to come up with our Top 5 movies after a decade of Geek Hard. Sadly there are some films that are not on the list because of our rule that it had to be a film that was previously released and on the show in the past decade. Between us, we have seen over 1000 films in the last decade we needed a way to help cut that list down to a more manageable selection. Tell us what you think and what we missed on our lists.
We also talk with actor Nelson Leis. If you heard last week’s show, you know we gave our review of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 3. Most of the season takes place in Hell. Nelson appears throughout the show as Beelzebub, one of the Demon Kings of Hell. Nelson Leis is a dynamic character actor with a diverse and extensive resume. Not only is he accomplished in the worlds of film and television but over the years his brilliant energy has also been seen on stage. Up next Nelson will reprise his recurring role as the demon Beelzebub in part three of Netflix’s wildly successful series “Chilling Adventure of Sabrina” out January 24th. Nelson has had the pleasure of working opposite huge talent such as Kevin Bacon in the Lifetime film “Story Of A Girl” directed by Kyra Sedgwick, Steve Zahn in Nat Geographic Channel’s “Valley of the Boom”, Rainn Wilson in FOX’s “Backstrom”, Freddy Highmore in A&E’s “Bates Motel” and Joel Kinnamen in AMC’s “The Killing”. He has also guest-starred on The CW’s “Supernatural”, “The Flash” and “Arrow”.
