I’m The Droid They’re Looking For!


It will be a day long remembered! Next Wednesday, February 27th, at 7pm at Meltdown comics in Los Angeles, I will have the honor of being inducted into the legendary “501st,” a global organization which raises money for charities through it’s appreciation, celebration and awareness of STAR WARS, as displayed through it’s legion of quality-costumed SW characters. And since it took me a half hour to construct that last sentence, I will let Meltdown comics say the rest at their site here. But please, “Join me! (Said in my best Darth Vader) And we will rule the evening with helmets and guns!” Then catch the season three finale of MAD on Monday, March 4th for our reality series spoof, STAR WARS EARNED STRIPES. 8:30pm on Cartoon Network.


Monday Mornings premieres Monday Night on TNT

Monday Mornings

What do Alfred Molina and I have in common? Well, besides both of us being in the Robot Chicken: DC Comics special and besides the fact that we both love Raiders of the Lost Ark, we will, more importantly, both be in tonight’s episode of “Monday Mornings,” David E. Kelley’s new hospital drama airing tonight (Monday, February 4th) at 10pm on TNT. The good news is that my character comes back in a few episodes, but the great news is that Alfred Molina is a regular on the series, along with Ving Rhames, Jamie Bamber from Battlsestar Galactica and a slew of talented people including Keong Sim and Cara Pifko who I had the pleasure of sharing my scenes with. So tune in tonight and set those DVRs!

A Good Groundhog’s Day to have to repeat!

Last night Seth and I were presenters at the 40th Annual Annie awards, handing the award for Best Voice Acting In A Television Production to Kristen Schaal for “Gravity Falls” and Best Voice Acting in An Animated Feature to Alan Tudyk for “Wreck It Ralph.” In addition to presenting, I was also nominated against myself in the category of Best Animated Television Production, having worked on both MAD’s Halloween episode and the Robot Chicken: DC Comics special, so I knew it was going to be an awkward drive home since at least one of me was going home empty handed. As it turned out, Robot Chicken took the prize, giving us our third Annie award. All in all, a good day to have to live through again if there’s any truth to this Groundhog thing.


First Hostess, Now Scooby Snacks

In light of losing Hostess recently, it got us to thinking that some companies are just not meant to last.

The Scooby Doo Gang’s Halloween

Why the Scooby Doo gang isn’t invited to more Halloween parties. From last year’s MAD Halloween special.

The future is looking Grimm

As a teaser for the upcoming season of GRIMM, TV Guide used a photo of my darker… or should I say, more prickly side, as evidenced by my guest spot on the episode titled “Quill.” The actual episode airs Friday, September 14th on NBC. This may wind up being my new headshot.

MAD gets its first Emmy nomination!

I’m a little late in posting this since the news came out a week ago, but MAD has been nominated for a 2012 Emmy award in the category of OUTSTANDING ANIMATED PROGRAM SHORT-FORMAT for our Halloween episode, and I couldn’t be prouder; of the cast, of the crew, of the animators and of the writers. Knowing how hard everyone works day after day leaves me little hesitation in saying it is well deserved. I was interviewed about my reaction to the nomination by both The Hollywood Reporter and Variety and the follow up question is always, “What do you think of the competition?” Which is funny because in this case they’re all friends or acquaintances. The “they” being ROBOT CHICKEN (where I continue to contribute as a writer and voice actor, although not for this particular episode.) ADVENTURE TIME and REGULAR SHOW (who share the 8 – 9 o’clock time slot with us Monday nights on Cartoon Network) and PHINEAS AND FERB (with whom I don’t actually have a relationship, but who we’ve parodied many times on MAD.) So it’s all very familial (Seth actually plays Gordon Ramsey in our nominated Kitchen Nightmare Before Christmas sketch) and the feeling is basically, “Hey, we all got a ticket to the same party!”

That being said, I hope they’ll all have the good sense to forfeit 🙂
