On the last day of AWESOME CON, Reel Film News had an opportunity to catch up with comedian/actor, Phil LaMarr. Remembered as one of the original cast members of MadTV, Mr. LaMarr has appeared on tv shows, such as Reno 911 and Castle, as well as film (see PULP FICTION). In addition, Mr. LaMarr has become quite prolific with his voice-over work, providing his talents in cartoons (movies & television) and videogames, such as the Justice League animated series, Samurai Jack, the METAL GEAR SOLID game series, and Family Guy, just to name a few. In fact, his voicing talents, like Mr. Billy West, can also be heard on Futurama, in the form of Jamaican bureaucrat, “Hermes.” In our interview, we discuss the possibilities of MADtv returning, along with other future projects, such as the series Chatroom of Solitude appearing on Stan Lee’s World of Heroes YouTube Channel.
