We talk with actor Mark Rolston! Chances are you’ve probably seen or heard him in the past 40 years as he’s popped up in some of your favourite movies and t.v. shows. From Aliens to Shawshank Redemption to Star Trek, he gets around. He’s also had the distinction of playing both Lex Luthor and Norman Osborn in voice over roles! Mark Rolston has created such iconic roles as Pvt. Drake in Aliens, Bogs Diamond in The Shawshank Redemption, the original Alistar on Supernatural, and recently as Clive Davis in Whitney, and as Admiral Ernest King in Midway. You also know him as Walter Pierce on Star Trek: The Next Generation. He later appeared as Kuroda and Magh in Star Trek: Enterprise. Marks’ work in motion capture video games includes Norman Osborn in Spider-Man and will be starring in a follow-up game later this year. Mark also has numerous credits in the Voice Over arena, as Lex Luthor on Young Justice, and Commander Kolivan on Voltron.

Our review of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 7 Episode 1 starring Clark Gregg, Chloe Bennet and Ming-Na Wen. Coulson and the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are thrust backward in time and stranded in 1931 New York City. With the all-new Zephyr set to time-jump at any moment, the team must hurry to find out exactly what happened. If they fail, it would mean disaster for the past, present and future of the world.

We also talk with comic artist Adam Gorham. Adam’s been a long time friend of the show and has even won an award for it. Adam will be on to talk about his current cover work and his upcoming TMNT series that he is working on. Plus we get to have a good laugh at his hair and how bad his memory is.

It was a great show!
