We’re proud to announce our new guide to finding voice actors in on-screen roles!
We love putting faces to the voices. We get a real kick out of seeing our favorite voice actors playing in live action.
With some voice actors, that’s pretty easy. Mostly the ones who would be considered “celebrity casting”, like Zach Galifianakis as the Joker in the new Lego Batman. Those aren’t so much voice actors in live action roles, as they are live action stars in voice acting roles.
For the rest, like the people from Bob’s Burgers, or BoJack Horseman, or even My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, it’s not so simple. It’s surprising how difficult it can be to just look up, say, where to see the actress behind Ahsoka Tano flexing her acting chops in the flesh.
In video games, it’s even worse. Resources like IMDB are often incomplete for video games. Complete cast lists just aren’t always listed there, and if they are, the actors’ filmographies might be incomplete.
Don’t even try to dig into the cast list for TV episodes. The interface is downright inscrutable.
Why Are We Doing This?
What this means overall is that we saw a need for a way to simply look up an animated project, and see other roles for the actors involved in it.
We plan to expand this guide regularly. Right now, we’ve got 10 shows up and running, and you can expect to see a few more.
Ultimately, we hope to include every voice acted movie, TV show, and video game in recent memory.
To start with, we’ve got a list of every cartoon currently in production on TV (or streaming services like Netflix), and we’re going through them one by one.
Is this a strange Sisyphean task, worthy of Don Quixote himself?
Is it a labor of love?
Hope you enjoy it.
