On Day 1 of AWESOME CON, Reel Film News was in attendance to check out the panel for legendary voice actor, Billy West. Unbeknownst to some, Mr. West has been a large part of their childhood, supplying the voices for many beloved characters from television shows such as FUTURAMA, REN & STIMPY, and DOUG, just to name a few….In the panel, Mr. West discusses: his “run-in” with fans, his pet peeve of “Hollywood actors” doing voice-over work, meeting his heroes (such as voice actor Mel Blanc), his stint on THE HOWARD STERN SHOW, and much, much more!! Check it out!
Warning: Some strong language…
During the Q & A after the panel, Mr. West reveals what inspires to create character voices. Also, he reveals the origins of Futurama fan-favorite character Zapp Brannigan.
