Mystic Force voice actors, Stuart Devenie (voice of Imperius, Mystic Force) & Geoff Dolan (voice of Koragg, Mystic Force) teamed up nine years before their Power Rangers roles on an episode of "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys." In one of the series' more comedic episodes, titled "...And Fancy Free," Hercules finds himself accepting a dance invitation from a local outcast who wishes to find her place in the spotlight. Intending to stop Hercules so his daughter can win, the village's Magistrate (played by Stuart Devenie) sets out to end Hercules' dance career any way he can. This usually involves sending his lead henchman (played by Geoff Dolan) into battle against Hercules on several occasions, only to be defeated at every turn. In the end Hercules and his young partner, Althea win the contest. This was Dolan's second appearance on "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" to be featured on the blog.
Season 4 of "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" is available on DVD
Power Rangers voice actor Brad Hawkins (voice of Trey, Zeo) played a supporting role in this 2008 television movie. The film continues the story of the UK crime drama "Wire in the Blood," sending its main character, Dr. Tony Hill (Robson Green) to Texas, where a young soldier who served in Iraq is accused of murdering his wife and children due to post-traumatic stress disorder. Hawkins plays that young soldier, Darius Grady. Along the journey of his case, Dr. Hill begins to think that Darius might actually be innocent of the crimes, despite his confessions and their volatile past when Hill investigated the allegations that Darius had raped a teenaged girl when he was stationed in the UK, another act blamed on post-traumatic stress. Things get even more complicated when Darius attempts to commit suicide, haunted by his young daughter's last moments. A full zip of Brad Hawkins' screencaps is available to download below.
