    I'd been curious to see some of his standup for a while, I just hadn't seen any until now.

    It really shows his ability to do voices. You wouldn't think such a big guy sould do a shrill voice like starscream?

    I don't know which is better, Latta's standup or Shatner's jacket.

    Haha, awesome. I've also wanted to see his standup, never thought I'd get the chance considering that's been decades ago (didn't think any was floating around). Very hilarious guy. It is crazy to pin his face to the voice of Starscream and ol' Cobra Commander. Long live Chris Latta (the REAL Starscream), cheers.

    He's also in the movie Roadhouse - I never would have believed in a million years he was the voice of Starscream from looking at him.

    He also played a Klingon in the Star Trek: TNG episode "A Matter of Honor." It was years before I knew "Christopher Collins" was also Chris Latta.

    Holy shit, he's hilarious.

    "Now you may be saying "Chris, that's a racist stereotype.' True, but those were the Irish kids."

    Rest in Peace.

    That was very cool.I wonder why he changed his name from Latta to Collins.

    :rip 

    Yeah, such big guys shouldn't be able to do Starscream... But, then again, I know a big guy who can do an ax kick over his head. Never judge anything on appearance.

    I didn't even know he did stand up. I only knew him as Starscream... Then later, in Season 3 recognized Ol' Snake as Cobra Commander & made the connection.

    Collins is his real name. Latta he used as his Stage name, at least according to his TFWiki page.
