I'm going back to 2013's theme again this year - an alphabetical listing of 26 interesting people A-Z from pop culture.
And we'll kick the whole thing off by revealing...
A is for Ace Mask!
I first took notice of Ace Mask when I watched Jim Wynorski's wonderful 1988 remake of Not of This Earth. He is very funny in the movie as Dr. Rochelle.

I then started to see him in other movies - usually directed by Jim Wynorski. Across 20 years - 1986-2006 - Ace Mask racked up 26 credits - initially in genre pictures like Return of Swamp Thing and Transylvania Twist, and eventually - under the name Wesley Mask - as a guest star on several TV series like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and The Bold and the Beautiful.
I asked Jim Wynorski about working with him - here's what he had to say..,
"I loved working with Ace Mask on my early pictures. Whether he co-starred or was just featured, I could always count on Ace for a knockout performance."
I don't know much else about him - but I've always enjoyed his work and I hope to see him in a new project one of these days.
Until tomorrow - you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!
