How often does one get to go to both the West and East Coast premieres of a movie – if you’re not involved in it, that is? Probably not that often. But I just did, and that was pretty darned cool. This past week, I got to experience the world premiere of I Know That Voice at Grauman’s Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood; and then two days later, the East Coast premiere of the voice acting documentary at The National Press Club right here in D.C.
If you read my columns at all, you’ll know I’m a big fan of the talents of the voiceover industry and of this documentary. So it was a ton of fun to go to the world premiere, because literally 80% of the extensive cast was in attendance, and everyone was really happy to be there.
It was fun to watch the red »

In my apparent continuing quest to interview all the great voice actors living today (because they are the most fun, okay?), I now bring you my interview with the talented and Emmy-winning Maurice Lamarche, a.k.a. The Brain, Squit, Kif Kroker, Morbo, Lrrr, several Futurama robots, Dr. Egon Spengler, Dizzy Devil, Yosemite Sam, Mr. Freeze, Victor von Doom, General Var Suthra, Mortimer Mouse, Chief Quimby, and more.
It was a real pleasure to speak with Maurice, who I’ve been listening to in various guises since I was a wee thing (I was a big Inspector Gadget fan as a child; and then with Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, and Futurama being amongst my other favorite shows through the years, I guess I’ve pretty much been listening to Maurice all my life!). It was also great to see him do many of his excellent voices and impressions both during the interview, »

At Dragon Con a few weeks ago, I was delighted to catch up with voice actor John Dimaggio (a.k.a. Bender from Futurama) once again. John was at the con for several voice actor and Futurama panels, and also to continue spreading the word about his new voice actor documentary, I Know That Voice, which I interviewed him and the other producers about during San Diego Comic-Con. John was actually selling limited collector’s edition/advance copies of the documentary at the con, so not only did I check in with him on further documentary news, but I also snagged a copy of the film! Read on for our short I Know That Voice follow-up interview, and my review of the documentary!
What has the reception to the I Know That Voice documentary been at Dragon Con, and have you sold some of the advance copies?
It’s been really wonderful. »

The highlights from this year's Comic-Con were Tom Hiddleston surprising Hall H as Loki and Andrew Garfield spending a majority of his panel in character as Spider-Man. With the exception of Sacha Baron Cohen and the Spinal Tap crew, actors very rarely make appearances dressed in character. An even rarer sight is seeing voice actors dressed as the animated characters they play. It can be a bit bizarre, but it's always a treat to see. Here are 15 (and a half-ish) actors in cosplay as their own characters.
As part of their panel for Sdcc '13, the cast pre-recorded a bit that had them "forced" to dress up as their cartoon counterparts -- Bill Hader as Flint Lockwood, Anna Faris as Sam Sparks, Andy Samberg as Brent McHale, and Terry Crews as Earl Devereaux.

By the time you read this, I’ll be winging my way out of Atlanta and back home; but as I write, I am still in the thick of the exciting events of Dragon Con! I’ve had some great fun this weekend, and it’s not even over yet!
So, what the heck have I done this weekend? Seriously, guys, what did I do? It’s all kind of a blur. A really fun blur, mind you! But…let me think…
Oh yes! I interviewed Michael Rooker, Maurice Lamarche, Raphael Sbarge, Charlie Schlatter, and Jim Butcher, and checked in with John Dimaggio for more news on his awesome voice actor documentary (which I now have!) so look for those interviews and a documentary review coming your way soon!
I also had some experiences you can only have at Dragon Con—like looking over a food table with Richard Hatch »

Fans of A&E's Western "Longmire," there's some potential good news about a Season 3.
On Thursday (Aug. 29), executive producer John Coveny tweeted the sturdy-rated series was renewed for a Season 3. "Thanks to the 5 million plus weekly fans (live+7). Young and older skewing alike," he writes. "The call just came in: Season 3 for #Longmire is a Go!"
Before you start celebrating, however, it should be noted that the network has yet to confirm the renewal. A Season 3 is likely, thanks to Monday's Season 2 finale and its season high ratings, but let's not put the cart before the horse, as they say.

- As "Futurama" prepares to sign off the good for the second time on Wednesday (Sept. 4), Comedy Central has revealed plans to make the night more of an event. A pair of online companion shows, to be hosted by Chris Hardwick, will bookend the finale, »
Good news, everyone! The series finale of "Futurama" is going out with a bang.

When I heard about Family Guy’s crossover with The Simpsons, my face made what you might call a grimace. I’m not a huge fan of Family Guy; it makes me laugh, certainly, but I could never get behind its particular brand of humor the way most of the show’s fans have. And The Simpsons are such a classic series in my mind that imagining their world meshing with Family Guy’s was not a pleasant process. Now, what does work in my mind is a crossover between The Simpsons and Futurama, which, and thank God for making this possible, is happening. I feel like this is a decade in the making.
Even though Futurama is coming to an end on Comedy Central – technically its second series finale as it’s been canceled once before by Fox – its seventh season finale won’t be the last time we see Bender, »

Appearing in their annual “last Comic-Con panel ever,” the creative talent behind Futurama once again delighted the audience with their own particular brand of off-center hijinks. Gathering the entire voice cast together for the first time, the team treated fans to a table read of the first act of the series finale, followed by a screening of the fully-finished second act. Unfortunately, the third act will remain behind the veil until the finale airs on September 4th on Comedy Central. Until then, be sure to hit the jump and check out our panel recap as this may very well be the last time we get to see Futurama at the Con (though I’m hoping another network will once again swoop in to rescue the beleaguered comedy series). Head writer David X. Cohen and creator Matt Groening introduce their "guests": John Dimaggio, Phil Lamarr, Lauren Tom, Maurice Lamarche, Tress »

Executive producer Al Jean announced at Comic Con on Saturday that both "The Simpsons" and creator Matt Groening’s other baby "Futurama" will team for an episode of the former to be recorded next month.
The story involves Bender arriving in our present to kill Bart because something Bart is about to do will change the future for the worse.
It is currently slated to air on Fox next year and will either serve as the season 25 finale in May, or the season 26 premiere in September.

It is slated to air on Fox as either the season 25 finale in May 2014 or as the season 26 premiere in fall »
