Stuart Devenie on "Jack of All Trades" (2000)

The short-lived action comedy "Jack of All Trades" debuted in 2000. From the minds behind "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" and "Xena: Warrior Princess," the adventure series follows Jack Stiles (series star Bruce Campbell) who is sent to Palau-Palau in the 1800's on a quest to stop Napoleon's plans for world domination. The first episode of the series features Mystic Force villain Stuart Devenie (voice of Imperius, Mystic Force) in the role of Croque, the governor of the island and brother to Napoleon. Devenie appears in several scenes of the episode as Jack & his new partner, Emilia Rothschild, infiltrate the governor's mansion with hopes of stealing sensitive plans about Napoleon's next strike. When their ruse is almost uncovered, Jack masquerades as the mythical Dragoon, a masked persona he would call upon throughout the series. "Jack of All Trades" ran for a total of 22 episodes over two seasons. The first episode also featured Ninja Storm alum Charles Pierard (Mr. Bradley, Ninja Storm).

"Jack of All Trades" is available on DVD
