Background
Younger Days
Grew up in Cleveland in the 1950s. 
Went to an all boys school.Got in a class play at the all girls school. Mr. Bumble in Oliver; learned to like acting 
Read comic books - his mother threw out his comics and baseball cards - still a sore spot for him. Fan of Star Wars. 
Getting into voice acting 
Great timing - in Toronto, Canada when animation business started to grow
Major break: Chief Chirpa from Star Wars: Ewoks, the 1985 animated show.
He was able to go from one guest gig to another 
X-Men: The Animated Series
Projected didn’t have the title - had Project X; he saw he was reading for a character called Beast and put it together
For most shows, recorded individually. For X-Men, cast recorded together as much as possible 
X-Men didn’t gear to small kids; like doing an adult series
He didn’t need to do research because  scripts were tight and concise and rich
English major; some references were familiar; some were made up by the writers
Favorite - Beauty and the Beast; all about sacrificing his feelings to avoid pain for Carly
Playing Beast taught him about control. 
Was a big kid; could take out a kid; did once, faced the consequences
Bullied as a kid; he became the one who told the jokes
Beast used peace over violence; violence only when necessary
X-Men film
He got a call from his agent
At the audition, someone recognized him as the voice of Beast
Singer was at the table and said that they were grateful for X-Men the Animated Series because w/o show, probably no X-Men movie
Got hired to play the Trucker on the spot
5 days of work with Anna Paquine and Hugh Jackman
Impact of the show
He’s not on social media
Had no idea of the impact the show had until he started doing conventions in 2019
Understand if you felt disenfranchised then the show would resonate
