-> ''"[[{{Firefly}} Badger]] [[HeyItsThatGuy sighting]]!"''
-->-- '''[[MemeticMutation The Internet]]''' on Mark Sheppard

A London-born actor and noted HeyItsThatGuy, Mark Sheppard is mostly known for his television work. He's usually a single-episode guest star or a recurring bit player rather than a regular castmember, but his appearances are [[EnsembleDarkhorse always memorable.]]

Sheppard's roles tend towards the villainous, or at least the mysterious and morally ambiguous. (When asked, he'll mention with some pride that he's never played a "bad guy".) If your favorite show featured a sinister and slightly creepy-looking Englishman for a couple episodes, it was probably him.

He also does the voice-over work for BBC America's promos, so it's also possible you'd recognize him from his voice alone. Funnily enough, at [[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E1TheImpossibleAstronaut one point,]] he was doing a voiceover (in his British accent) introducing a show he was starring (in an American accent.)

He is the son of legendary sci-fi genre actor W. Morgan Sheppard.

Not to be confused with Brigadier General Mark Jamison Sheppard, the GDI supreme commander from CommandAndConquer, or Mark Allen Shepard, aka Morn from ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine''.

!!Notable "[[HeyItsThatGuy Hey, It's That Guy!]]" roles:
* ''TheXFiles'': Cecil L'ively, a gardener who starts fires with his mind.
* ''Series/{{Firefly}}'': Badger, one of the crew's regular criminal contacts.
** Interestingly, he's playing a role originally meant for JossWhedon himself.
* ''{{Sliders}}'': in ''Net Worth'' he plays a gang leader among the poor separated from the rich.
* ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''
* ''TheMiddleman'': Manservant Neville, an environmentally-conscious electronics mogul who may or may not be evil. [[spoiler:He totally is.]]
* ''BurnNotice'': Tom Prescott, a bank robber who discovers that spies make bad hostages.
* ''Series/{{Leverage}}'': Jim Sterling, an insurance investigator who used to be Nate's coworker and close friend, now a WildCard antagonist to the team. "Sterling never loses" is an ''official rule'' in the writers' room.
* ''WhiteCollar'': Curtis Hegen, a notorious art forger. Notable for being the show's first villain of the week.
* ''Series/{{Dollhouse}}'': Tanaka
* ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}'': Romo Lampkin. Creepy and ruthless--seemingly even [[AmoralAttorney amoral]]--but [[GoodIsNotNice still one of]] [[DarkIsNotEvil the good guys]].
* ''{{Medium}}'': Dr. Charles Walker
* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'': Crowley, leader of the [[DealWithTheDevil Crossroads Demons]] and new Ruler of Hell.
* ''{{Warehouse 13}}'': Benedict Valda, one of the Regents, the shadowy organization that runs the Warehouse.
* ''TheConduit'': Michael Ford (no relation to [[Series/{{Leverage}} Nate Ford]]).
* ''{{Chuck}}'': The Director of the The Ring
* ''[[Series/{{Jake20}} Jake 2.0]]'': Plays an American, a member of an Army Special Forces unit [[spoiler:which has gone rogue]], in the episode ''Whiskey-Tango-Foxtrot''.
* ''CSI'': [[YouLookFamiliar Twice!]] As a sleazy photographer in the S1 episode 'The Hunger Artist' and a Russian pimp in 'The Lost Girls.'
* ''Series/DoctorWho'': Canton Everett Delaware III, a recently ousted FBI agent brought back into the fold by RichardNixon to deal with a seemingly [[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E1TheImpossibleAstronaut impossible]] [[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E2DayOfTheMoon problem]]. Joined by [[RealLifeRelative his father]] in the same role but [[TimeshiftedActor older]].
* ''Series/TwentyFour'': Ivan Erwich, a recurring antagonist in the first half of season five.
* ''{{Monk}}'': A crooked gravedigger who happens to be the killer of the week, in an episode that was notable for being one of the earliest ones with Monk's second assistant Natalie. He also had a [[OohMeAccentsSlipping little trouble]] keeping his American accent in this one.
