  • - I have jagged teeth,

  • and I eat angel birds.

  • They are your souls [gobbles].

  • Hi, I'm Phil LaMarr.

  • I've played a lot of different characters.

  • I played Hermes on Futurama.

  • the samurai known as Jack on Samurai Jack,

  • the Green Lantern in Justice League,

  • Bolbi on Jimmy Neutron, Ollie Williams.

  • - It's gonna rain.

  • - On Family Guy.

  • I'm about to play some new characters,

  • based on some images I have never seen before,

  • so hopefully it'll be voices you've never heard before.

  • The man alone in bed, awake at 3:20.

  • Oh, this is the third act of that Pixar movie.

  • I am wrought with guilt.

  • Everything is not going to be right.

  • I can't sleep.

  • I can't even close my eyes.

  • Or, maybe he's a little calmer.

  • Maybe he's just more of this guy.

  • Well, there we go.

  • I'm just gonna be up,

  • 'cause I just got home from the club.

  • And until I come down off all of these drugs,

  • I'm just gonna lie here in my pajamas.

  • Honey, turn out the light in that bathroom, would ya.

  • All right, now we've got a young probably a teenager

  • in his karate gear.

  • There's two ways we can go with this one.

  • He can be a real black belt.

  • Yeah, hi-yah.

  • I have studied the martial arts since I was four,

  • and I can break all the boards.

  • Or, he might be the dude

  • who just like watching karate movies,

  • but he's not actually [mumbles].

  • Uh, no, I ain't never actually done karate

  • or spelt it, but I love it, man.

  • Ka, don't you look at me wrong.

  • I'm a karate chop your butt.

  • Now we've got our stereotypical, cartoon, smart kid.

  • I'm guessing he's not our hero.

  • He's somebody who's in our heroes class,

  • and always gets the A's when our hero doesn't.

  • He doesn't understand what you need to be socially cool,

  • so he speaks in equations [gasps] sigma [mumbles].

  • You know?

  • Or, he might be a little bit cooler,

  • 'cause you know nerds are running

  • all the studios now [laughs].

  • Sure, I can do that, Mrs. Watkins.

  • Can I have the chalk please [mumbles].

  • R squared pi [inhales].

  • Can I go the bathroom, please?

  • And now we have

  • a big, goofy, hairy monster.

  • This of course makes us think of Cookie Monster.

  • But that's copyrighted,

  • so we gotta go a different direction.

  • We've got the one big guy.

  • So maybe he's a little off,

  • but he's got a big smile [laughs].

  • Hi, is everybody ready for dinner?

  • He could be something that we encounter in the woods.

  • Maybe he's a little scary, huh [laughs]?

  • Don't worry, I won't hurt you.

  • I just going to chew you a little.

  • This is an owl.

  • But he looks very sort of Old World,

  • so you have to have sort of a black and white voice here,

  • something in the continental realm,

  • plus the fact of all of that detail and cross hatching.

  • This is someone that you take very seriously.

  • This is a man of breeding and wisdom from the Old World.

  • I've got a top hat behind my back,

  • so you know that I have status

  • and I will not deal with foolishness.

  • Or, he might be a little softer.

  • He could be, even though he looks very serious,

  • he could also be a comic character.

  • Hi, I am your silly uncle [laughs].

  • Oh, I'm sorry I accidentally signed over

  • the deed to the castle, we're homeless.

  • Now you've got a guy with a grill

  • who's very happy to be grilling.

  • I mean, he's not George Foreman, but he might be.

  • I can't afford a George Foreman grill,

  • so I got a Forge Georman grill.

  • How ya' doing?

  • I'm Forge Georman, and this here is my little tiny grill.

  • You can only fit one burger on it,

  • but it's one good burger.

  • He's your uncle, who's running the cookout,

  • that's also the family reunion.

  • Hey, boy, where you been?

  • I ain't seen you in so long.

  • Get on out here and bring me that ketchup.

  • I'm gonna make my special sauce [chuckles].

  • And tell you momma to bring me out some my special drink,

  • the purple one.

  • Now we have a great, big,

  • white Sasquatch, guerrilla type guy.

  • But he's also in a good mood,

  • so basically you've got a big primate here, right?

  • Oh yeah, oh, hi.

  • Welcome to the forest.

  • You're looking for the bathroom?

  • It's this tree right here.

  • Or, I love this.

  • This design might work might nicely for a villain.

  • Well, if you come into my forest at night,

  • it's not just good night moon,

  • it's good night you.

  • Well, now you've got a delivery guy.

  • I got a little experience playing these guys.

  • So hey, maybe he's somebody

  • who's just happy to be here, right [laughs]?

  • I got all these packages.

  • Although, I don't know.

  • This guy's got that big man chin.

  • I think he's got a little more ego than that.

  • Oh, don't you worry,

  • I've got your package right here [chuckles].

  • I've got all your packages right here.

  • What, you mean some people

  • make more than one trip [chuckles], amateurs.

  • 'Cause it looks like Patrick,

  • if I ever wore a baseball cap which I never do.

  • Okay, wow.

  • We've got some late night

  • Adult Swim type stuff happening here.

  • Hey, when I created this cartoon

  • I was like a little high [giggles].

  • Don't worry about it, it's cool.

  • But I have created a person,

  • I have antlers,

  • and I have jagged teeth,

  • and I eat angel birds,

  • so try and make sense of that, hey.

  • Oh, and I'm a little bit of the devil.

  • Yeah, see the fire and my trident?

  • Yeah, so these birds, they are your souls [gobbles].

  • Or we could just go, oh, man.

  • I'm up here on this thing

  • and anybody else hungry?

  • So we got cocky guy on a skateboard.

  • [laughs]

  • Who's either got a very crazy path behind him,

  • or yo, man that's my tag, dude.

  • Right, what's up?

  • You see what it says, right?

  • You know I'm an influencer and escape artist,

  • so get with it, dude [hisses].

  • Or, yeah, man maybe it's like this cool cat, right?

  • What you waiting for, let's hit it, yeah.

  • Let's go, olly, olly, oxen free [chuckles].

  • What I'm seeing here is sort of a period guy,

  • and he's got a folder that says secret

  • so he looks like a detective

  • but he's obviously a secret agent,

  • probably one of these hard boiled types.

  • I've got the secret files that I need right here.

  • Don't you worry, Jerry's not gonna get these.

  • We're gonna fight the axis powers, you better believe it.

  • So he's in the '40s, he's got a '40s hat.

  • He's gotta be in the '40s.

  • He's fighting the war.

  • Or if this guy wasn't our hero, if he was the bad guy.

  • Yeah, he's still in that period, sure,

  • but I got what I need,

  • and you're not getting it back

  • till I get some sommeliers.

  • The he just gets a little more edge to him,

  • gets a little more edge, right.

  • Don't make me fill you full of lead, something like that.

  • Now this is something I can relate to,

  • tribal wolf wearing a cow skull.

  • I am a predator,

  • and I live a predator life.

  • All in my tribe we eat meat.

  • Ew, who put these plants in my meat food?

  • You know, a lot of people come up to me and say,

  • "I wanna get into voice acting.

  • "How do you get into voice acting?"

  • I'm like, I don't know.

  • Get on a sketch comedy show on Fox

  • and then do cartoons, probably not the best path.

  • I came from a world that was very different

  • when voice acting wasn't a thing.

  • I didn't choose to be a voice actor, yes.

  • I was an actor who got a job on a cartoon, yes.

  • But with acting, or with anything,

  • the key is find a way to do it.

  • If you have friends who are artists or animators,

  • they're gonna need voices.

  • Go in there, help them out.

  • The thing is you gotta get in your mic time.

  • You gotta get in your practice.

  • Figuring out ways to solve the problem of performance.

  • Every role you're given is a problem to be solved.

  • There's a character on a page,

  • how do I make that real for an audience

  • who is going to watch or listen to it?

  • That's your job,

  • and you gotta practice it to get it right.

  • I'm Phil LaMarr, and this has been my personal take

  • on some really new cartoon voices.

- I have jagged teeth,
