    I know he hasn't made his official appearance yet, but I wanted to claim this thread, dammit!

    Xander Berkeley is going to be awesome as Gregory. No doubt about it.

    Express your love here!

    I really like him so far. He kinda reminds me of Dr. House (who coincidentally enough is also named Gregory).

    Gregory seems like that boss we all know who isn't respected by their subordinates, but is also that asshole they need to keep around.

    He was so skeevy. I hated him from the get go, which I was supposed to happen so he did good. I don't remember his comic counterpart being so smarmy from the very beginning but I really didn't pay much attention to him so I might have missed it.

    I've never seen Xander in anything other than Terminator 2, but the moment he opened the doors and said "JESUS, you're back!" I was like, yep this guy is great. It's a fine line to be skeevy but not cartoonish, and he's treading it really well so far; I hate Gregory, but I'm entertained by him. I totally believe him as a guy that is cunning but not a genius, and asshole but so much a coward he's not really a threat. Gregory will be a treat to see every few episodes.

    Xander played the role very well. He's pretty much exactly how I imagined Gregory would be.

    It was great. I could feel the skeeviness and slime the moment he opened his mouth. Freaking brilliant.

    Thought this fit very well here! Gregory made a hell of an entrance! Smarmy, sleazy and creepy....Rick's expression says it all.

    This was a perfect casting. I wasn't too sure at first, but they and he nailed it. He has the whole slimy, sleazy personalily down.

    I haven't read the GN but I remember Xander On 24 where he played an a hole too. I thought Gregory was a scumbag and just sleazy....so good job Xander!
