HELLSING ULTIMATE and KURO KIIRO FESTIVAL

It’s been a long wait for “Hellsing Ultimate” fans, but the gory smash anime has finally hit high-def with all episodes currently in release.  I voiced a mercenary member of the Wild Geese and with the all new second volume, you’ll also hear me as Christopher Walken.  Yep, THAT Christopher Walken.  It’s a brief appearance, but it’s always nice to get to put an impression to good use.  “Hellsing Ultimate” is available  now in two volumes, as a blu ray/dvd combo pack.

This weekend I am making my way to Pittsburgh for KURO KIIRO FESTIVAL.  If you have a smart phone, you can save the complete program guide digitally via the free Guidebook app (iOS and Android).  As of now, here is where you can find me:

 

FRIDAY

8p  Geek Talk

 

SATURDAY

1:30pm  Video Game Voice Acting

2:30pm  Autographs

5:30pm  Q and A

 

SUNDAY

(to be announced, so check Guidebook app or KuroKiiro.com for updates!)

 

Lastly, thanks so much to all the fans who messaged me about cheering during my cameo/credit appearance as Ryu in “Wreck-It Ralph”, and for sending me video clips and screencaps.   To say this is a career highlight is an understatement.  I’ve seen it three times (not just because I am in it) since the movie is pretty darn awesome.  Don’t miss the gorgeous Disney short in front of it, called “Paperman”.   Brilliant blend of 2D drawing and 3D depth.  As of this past weekend, “Wreck-It Ralph” held a sturdy #2 at the box office and continues to rake in a huge chunk of change for Disney.

WRECK-IT RALPH #1 and ANIME BLAST CHATTANOOGA

“Wreck-It Ralph” made a whopping $49.1 million in it’s debut weekend.  And deservedly so!  Hope you get a chance to check it out.  It’s very funny, touching, and overflowing with nostalgia.  Think “Toy Story” for gamers.  I am so blessed to have gotten to contribute a couple lines as Ryu in the opening.  Getting to voice in the #1 movie at the box office thanks to a cool loophole (Disney wanted actual game voices for their respective cameos)—who’da thunk?

Next stop for me is Chattanooga, Tennessee this weekend for ANIME BLAST CHATTANOOGA.  Other VA guests include Brittney Karbowski, Eric Stuart, and Aaron Dismuke.  Hope to see you there.  Here’s my panel/signing schedule:

Friday:
4PM – 5PM  Video Game Voice Acting 

5PM – 6PM  Opening Ceremonies

6PM – 7PM  Autographs

12AM – 2AM   Dragonball Evolution Roast (18+)

“WRECK-IT RALPH” & ANIME NEBRASKON

It’s a moment I’ve been awaiting for decades:  to be a voice on a Disney animated feature.  Granted, it’s just a cameo (Ryu from Street Fighter), but this is a huge personal achievement for me.  It’s the next step on the long and winding path of my voice over career.  My connection in the game world as the voice of an iconic character managed to land me a tiny slot on a major animated movie set in the video game world.  Talk about luck!  I had the pleasure of seeing an advance screening of “Wreck-It Ralph” (in theaters this Friday, November 2), and am happy to report that the film is not only a loving homage to old school games, but a well done story with characters that make you laugh and have emotional resonance.  “Wreck-It Ralph” is a ton of fun and I recommend it to anybody, regardless of my minimal involvement.   Gotta be honest, it’s gonna be a while coming down from this particular high.  I’m thrilled, not only for the opportunity, but for where this notch on the resume will lead.   Hopefully bigger roles on other mainstream animation projects.  Meanwhile, the auditions continue!

If you’re in Omaha, Nebraska, or nearby, I’ll be headed to ANIME NEBRASKON this weekend.  I’ll be catching “Wreck-It Ralph” again and, of course, doing panels and signings:
