In the new movie Thumper, Taylor brings that talent to a realistic, contemporary story about the American opioid epidemic from the point of view of the underprivileged youth most likely to buy and deal.

Class‘ Sophie Hopkins Explains How Buffy Landed Her a Sweet Gig In the Whoniverse

I'm sure there are plenty of Jack Sparrows who've already watched all of the Doctor Who spin-off, Class, as it was broadcast in Britain. However, it didn't officially drop in the States until last week, after the Doctor Who premiere, and it was extraordinary! While geared toward a YA audience, there's nothing immature or frivolous about Class. Holding it all together is the character of April MacLean, the girl who is literally the heart of the show.

Interview: Alan Tudyk Talks Playing a Lesser Wayne on NBC’s Powerless

As he's proven time and time again from geek favorites like Firefly and Con Man, to films like Death At a Funeral (one of my favorite movies for absolutely no reason), not to mention his facility with rooster voices, Alan Tudyk is very much at home with nerdy comedy. DON'T TELL ANYONE, but I have to say that this was the roundtable interview I was most looking forward to on the set of Powerless.
