SAG Foundation Gives Actors Chance to Hold ‘em, Fold ‘em With Robert Hays

The star of “Airplane!” will captain the SAG Foundation’s annual poker tournament, which is set to take place Aug. 23 at Museum of Flying in Santa Monica. Money raised from the annual Poker Classic goes to support the Don Lafontaine Voice-Over Lab. "I once went up to Don Lafontaine to say hello and he said, 'Oh! I did the "Airplane!" trailer.' So we had worked together and I didn't even know. Boy, he was remarkable," Robert Hays said. "It's so wonderful to have the Don Lafontaine Voice-Over Lab at the SAG Foundation, where voice artists can learn the craft, polish the craft, and make their own work. It’s also remarkable." Paul Pape, who co-founded the Lab, said the late Lafontaine, who was famous for his trailer voiceovers and using the phrase "in a world," would be “pleased” with Hays’ selection as host. “Especially when we run the 'Airplane!

Now You Can Be Frozen In Carbonite Just Like Han Solo

My favorite character in the Star War saga is, hands down, Han Solo.  That is because Harrison Ford is a perpetual bad ass and someone that I wanted to be like.  With his cool swagger, his ability to jump into action faster than you can say warp speed and his awesome sidekick, who wouldn't want to be like him? 

Thanks to Paul Pape you or I could turn ourselves into Han Solo.  The only catch is that it would be the Han Solo who gets frozen in carbonite.  Pape will specially design a mini-model of you frozen in carbonite.

Thankfully he can do it without the painful freezing process or the temporary blindness after thawing out.  All you have to do is send a picture of yourself to Paul at paulpape@gmail.com and you get a model made like the one below in your likeness.

A Room for the Voice

In March 2009, voice actors Paul Pape and Joe Cipriano joined engineer George Whittam to honor Don Lafontaine, their late friend and a voiceover legend, who voiced more than 5,000 movie trailers. With the Screen Actors Guild Foundation, the three worked to create and build the Don Lafontaine Voice-Over Lab, where voice performers can work on their craft and record demos and auditions. The lab is located at the SAG Foundation Actors Center in Los Angeles.After Pape approached Marcia Smith, the foundation's executive director, about the idea, start-up funds were raised over the course of a weekend through contributions from Lafontaine's close friends and co-workers. These contributors later became the lab's advisory board.The SAG Foundation was the perfect partner for turning this idea into reality, says Casey Lewis, construction project manager and the Actors Center's director: "Basically, our mission is to assist, educate, and inspire actors. That's what we do through our programs.
