Halloween season, and Crimson Head Elder Podcast #17 brings very special star guest Xander Berkeley, 'Gregory' on AMC's 'The Walking Dead', into our mansion!

An outstanding actor, famous for his iconic, and eclectic roles across major Hollywood films, including Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Candy Man, Apollo 13, Air Force One, Kick-Ass, Transcendence, and for main cast roles in Emmy awarded television series, including political thriller 24, crime drama The Mentalist, action thriller Nikita, mystery drama the Booth at the End, supernatural horror Being Human, supernatural horror Salem, and post-apocalyptic drama Jericho.

Xander was on top form, his candid answers regarding Gregory's character arc, or lack-there-of, his scenes leading up to & including the fight with Maggie, and ultimate death, made headlines with the grubby tabloids. Xander's response was in-character with the man; quiet, dignified, and he made a point publicly, to praise our community site here at CHE, without any regret.
