In the 1960s, my favorite program was The Invaders with Roy Thinnes. Did he do any movies or TV after that show, and are there any plans to release it on DVD?

Thinnes, 70, has worked continuously since the classic TV sci-fi drama—the first season of which was released on DVD in May—went off the air in 1968. You may have seen the Chicago native through the years on Falcon Crest, General Hospital and the 1991 remake of Dark Shadows, or cropping up briefly in The Sopranos, The X Files, Touched by an Angel or dozens of other prime-time favorites. More recently, he appeared in Law & Order and its spin-offs, Criminal Intent and Special Victims Unit, and the Russell Crowe movie A Beautiful Mind.
