Tarantino wasn't scary I'll agree there but he was one of more funny bad guys that we saw on Alias. I admit though I didn't fully appreciate him until I had watched "The Box I/II" for the second time - only then did I see the humor.
Peggy Lipton is the actress who played "Olivia Reed" the mother of "Lauren Reed" in Alias.
Peggy achieved stardom in the 1968 TV series "The Mod Squad". She married producer Quincy Jones in 1974 and left show business to raise their children. Lipton had a career revival in the 1990 TV series "Twin Peaks".
Yeah, it was. Some funny characters in it. Ben Horne, Cooper, Albert Rosenfield to name a few.
It did have a few characters that made you want to gouge your eyes out though, like Nadine, Evelyn Marsh and Richard Tremayne (the actor was actually in Alias, he played Johannes Guthrid, some Covenant head that Lauren kills)
