First of all, why don't you introduce yourself to those of us who don't already know you?


My name is Ed Gage. Iím an actor, musician, martial artist and stuntman in Los Angeles, CA.


From what I know, you're currently preparing to play none other than the Batman in an as-of-yet untitled fan movie - so what can you tell us about that project, and about playing Batman to begin with?


Well, without going into too much detail itís a short that will have action and thrills that will be mind-blowing especially for a fan film. And of course fight scenes. Getting to be able to play the character is amazing. Iíve loved Batman since I was a little kid. Fan film or not, Iím so stoked to be portraying the Caped Crusader!


Interestingly, early in your career you played the Joker in two Batman shorts - so could you talk about those for a bit, and did they prepare you in any way for playing the Batman now?


Those were my beginning steps in acting long before I made my journey to Hollywood. I was 17 when I landed the first Joker role. I think it prepared me for a lot of things. Even though I feel it typecast me for a bit, I managed to break out that. Even though Iíve been a protagonist before. Now I get to be the superhero.


Any other current or future projects you'd like to talk about?


I have one film called Wired Fire that has a short treatment and we want to turn it into a full length feature and hopefully get potential B-list names involved. Iíve also gotten involved in other productions including War Gene II, Hellican and Dying For Living amongst others!


What got you into acting in the first place, and did you receive any formal education on the subject?


When I saw Back to the Future as a kid, I immediately knew what I wanted to be in life. Something extraordinary. I wanted to play music and act. Throughout high school and college I took many courses that related to film, acting and even music.


How would you describe yourself as an actor, and some of your techniques to bring your characters to life?


Well, I never method act. Normally I like to get into character before we do the take. I feel I save the energy of the character before doing so. Thatís just me though. Every actor has their way of bringing a character to life.


Over the years, you've also time and again taken over production duties on films, as well as other jobs behind the camera - so what prompted that move, and which side of the camera do you prefer, actually?


Well, I honestly love to be in front of the camera. Thereís no doubt about that. But if me working behind the scenes means helping others get to the next step in their career then by all means Iíll always be willing to be a helping hand. I love seeing my friends and colleagues in film progress and do well. 


What can you tell us about your past filmwork, in whatever position?


Oh man, I have so much I can list. As an actor and stuntman Iíve done so much. Getting to work on The Mandalorian was and still is one of my highlights in acting and stunts. Same with Westworld. Also getting to land a lead role in a music video for Cypress Hill was another highlight.


Besides making movies, you're also a musician - so what can you tell us about that aspect of your career, your preferred style of music and musical influences?


As I had mentioned previously, Back to the Future played a huge part in that. It introduced me to Eddie Van Halen. Then it got me hooked on my future favorite bands like AC/DC, KISS, Iron Maiden, W.A.S.P. and many more. I love metal and rock, those are my go to genres. But I enjoy new wave, synthwave, music scores (especially 80s and 90s scores and soundtracks), some old school 90s rap, and believe it or not new age and ambient music.


Actors, filmmakers, musicians, whoever else who inspire you?


Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Dolph Lundgren, Jean Claude Van Damme, Steven Spielberg, James Cameron, John Carpenter, Bruce Dickinson, Paul DiíAnno, Ace Frehley, Gene Simmons, Angus Young, Eddie Van Halen, Sammy Hagar to name a few. 


Your favourite movies?


Top ones, especially franchises, would be Terminator, Rambo, Halloween, Friday the 13th, Rocky, Predator, Back to the Future, Jurassic Park and so many more.


... and of course, films you really deplore?


To be quite honest, I never try to rip on movies. I feel we deal with too much criticism in this industry as it is that I feel sometimes that opinions about films are better left unsaid.
