But he's not all bad, as Colin, who plays the Capt., told reporters in Vancouver, after ABC flew us up to the set earlier this month.

"I see him as both good and bad, depending on the situation," Colin said. "I think he's that type of guy that he will use whatever means necessary to get his own way. You know what I mean? He'll have no problem being a charming gentleman to one person and being completely ruthless with another. And that's the way he is. He's not necessarily outwardly evil, but he's definitely self-serving, completely."
