COMIC BOOK BIN (through Christopher Moshier): Same question for the actor who plays Troubleshooter...and tell him he is beautiful also!
SEAN ROURKE: Oh God...don't give him a big head. :)
Seriously, Jack is a natural. He's a born performer, and he really excels ON SCREEN. The subtlety he's able to get across really makes TS the lovable character he is. Jack and I were roommates in College, and even when I was writing the original back in school, I was basing TS off of him. It was like this Karmic fulfillment to have him actually wind up playing the part of Troubleshooter on the web series. Essentially, the Troubleshooter you know is actually Jack in real life. That's why I asked him to write the Troubleshooter episode. I was like, "Dude...it's your life...write it.
And if I may take a moment to sing praise to a few of our other male actors...
Brian Stevenson who plays Corey Dooner or the IMC, is one of the unsung heroes of the show. This guy has got a natural acting style that usually gets overshadowed by the fact that he plays one of the bad guys. This dude is the real deal. Every time he's on camera, he is solid, and we can't wait to make his character's involvement more intrinsic to the show.
Gaston Bitar plays the formidable Xander Dyson, head of the IMC. You wouldn't know it in real life, but he is actually one of the nicest guys in the world. A totally different person when he's smiling, which is all the time. But dang...you get him into his tough-guy face and bam...you do not wanna even get close to him. When he's in character on the set, I find myself calling him, "Sir." The guy plays a GREAT bad guy, and sometimes I feel bad about that. He's capable of so much more, but we need him to be a super villain
Then there's Ethan Keogh, who we just recently added to the Bad Guys' roster as Captain Sinai. Ethan is another classmate of ours from school, and again, a really nice guy, but when he gets his game-face on...damn...step off! He's the Uber-creep! We wanted someone who could play the shady CIA spook type who appears nice enough when you first meet him, but when he's slappin' the cuffs on, it's a whole different scary.
We've also had a host of guys who have played one-episode parts like Kevin Sage who played Stinger's creepy boyfriend Chance; Jim Trudell who played the inept Sultan Hardwire; Scott Galbreth who played the cop in Episode 5; Edgar Scholz who plays the Hacker talk-show host, Sputnik; Andrew Johnston who plays Corey's IMC sidekick and ex-hacker turned white-hat, Brother Sigma...all these guys are really good, and there are a number of others who I could spend more time praising, but suffice it to say that the powerful women we have on this show are well supported by the men in their lives.
