Well, the project I had alluded to before, where I got to record with Billy West and Grey Delisle has been airing. And I got a heads up about it actually by reading on tech websites. Its the Verizon commercial featuring the Island of Misfit Toys. The iPhone shows up to the island and is told that it’ll fit right in there since its coverage map isn’t as great as Verizon. I recorded as the choo choo train, but unfortunately got cut from the spot. He’s in there but only in a long shot amongst other toys in the background. Have to admit, I’m pretty bummed, but I got paid, and ultimately that’s the important thing. Its still a recording memory I will cherish forever. Meanwhile, as always, auditioning constantly so my voice is being heard. Something will stick eventually. Always does.
Now onto more positive news. Got several projects you can hear me on:
“Monster” : airing on Syfy. I voiced Maurer, the journalist. I will come back in a later story arc as another episodic character.
“Naruto: Shipuuden” : on Disney XD. My character, Kiba, will show up a few months from now.
“Blade of the Immortal”: based on the manga. The first volume is out on dvd. I voice Shido.
“Dragonball Z: Raging Blast” : While the rest of the world is going gaga over “Modern Warefare 2″, the Saiyans are back, including myself as teen Gohan and the Narrator. Out now on PS3 and Xbox360.
“Magnum Farce”: this CG spoof of “Dirty Harry” featuring myself as Blivit the Sniper, is screening at the LA Comedy Festival, this upcoming Monday evening at the Acme Theater in Los Angeles. For more info, visit www.LAComedyFest.com.
Lastly, my final appearance of the year will be at Another Anime Con in Nashua, New Hampshire. My podcast cohosts, Otherworld Steve and Marc Swint will be on board as well. We’ll be recording a Big Bald Broadcast panel on Saturday afternoon at the con at 2p. Its happening next weekend! If you’re in the Boston area, truck on over. Would love to see ya!
