I know you’ve noticed it: Mark Sheppard is everywhere. Keith thinks he noticed it first, but we’re all on top of things. We don’t miss a trick, nope, not us. I don’t know about you, but I love that Mark Sheppard is everywhere.
Since Keith has written his post about Mark Sheppard invading his TV, in multi-episode roles on shows such as Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, Leverage and Dollhouse, he’s shown up on even more shows we watch — Warehouse 13, Supernatural and Chuck.
It begs the question, does Mark Sheppard just know how to pick a great role, or does he just bring something so special to the table no matter what role he gets? Probably it’s a combination of both, but I know that every time I see him pop up on another favorite show, I get giddy. I love this guy.
If I had to pick a favorite role, I’d have to go with Sterling on Leverage (though Crowley on Supernatural might be tied for the win….). He helped make season one the masterpiece that it was and even Ivey says we need more Sterling to make season three not suck (his word, not mine).
How about you — what’s your favorite Mark Sheppard multi-episode role?
