Changing Career Paths With Derek Mears

Off The Track with CJ Ecalono

Caught up with an ex-teammates of mine from Robert Morris University. We talked about our time at RMU, Leadership, and his Career change. He graduated RMU with a Sport Management degree and excelled early on after college working for the Orlando Magic. However, he wasn't happy and after a few other jobs here and there and a move to NY, he eventually went all in to become a teacher. To say this is his calling card, would be an understatement. Anyone who crosses paths with Derek becomes a better person. He truly has one of the most infectious personalities ever! He is now working as the Dean of Students at his school!

Ep 10: Derek Mears - Swamp Thing

justsaying with...

The new Swamp Thing has his roots in villainy. With a tough, imposing, and frightening presence -- accentuated by his muscular build, deep-set eyes, and bald head, Derek Mears fit the bill for some of the most menacing roles in Hollywood.   Mears' career culminated with the remakes of two iconic slasher movies: The Hills Have Eyes 2 (2007), in which his appearance seemed to evoke the presence of Michael Berryman's Pluto from the two original Wes Craven Hills movies; and producer Michael Bay's remake Friday the 13th (2009), where he played the hockey mask-wearing, machete-wielding serial killer Jason Voorhees.  Mears now takes on the role of DC's elemental superhero - Swamp Thing. Derek Mears chats with us on taking up the mantle of Swamp Thing, his career and what he thinks is the elemental hero's greatest superpower.   The ten-episode superhero horror drama series is now available on Warner TV. A new episode airs every Wednesday.   #SwampThing #DerekMears #WarnerTV
