    Worked with Marcus one time. Some of the better spots on my reel. He certainly wasn’t well received by the creative team on the gig, but he and I got along just fine. Lightening fast on the set.

    Nice–as someone who’s had many long and rambling conversations with M.N. over many years–he always surprises me–that brain never stops–
