David Selby

When my mom was younger, she was interested in this television soap opera called Dark Shadows.  It's been getting a lot of attention lately because of Tim Burton and Johnny Depp.  My mom always liked Barnabas Collins as her favorite character and later on, when it returned to television on reruns in the early 90's, my sisters and I used to watch it with her.  Even though I always told her Barnabas was my favorite, I secretly always liked Quentin more.  This flies in the face of my general interests.  In the debate of vampire vs werewolf, I'm totally a vampire person.  And yet, Quentin (the werewolf character) was somehow superior to Barnabas in my opinion.  Go figure.

Years later, after seeing the movie, I suddenly decided to find out what happened to "Quentin Collins".  It turns out the actor, David Selby, has done quite well for himself.  Apparently he's in the Batman animation "The Dark Knight Returns" part one and two as James Gordon.  This may be something I will have to look into tracking down, if only because I'm apparently something of a fan girl...and unobservant.

So even though David Selby is likely to never read this blog...here's to you David Selby!  You're totally awesome!  The best werewolf ever!


  1. That was confusing. I thought you were talking about the Dark Knight Rises. He's doing voice acting in a Batman cartoon.
