Never sat through an episode of Futurama, but this short/long vid of Billly West tickled my chesters. I particularly agree with his stance on casting non voice actors in animated roles. This is why Dreamworks animated movies usually pale in comparison to Pixar films, beside the total, inimitable brilliance of Pixar storytelling. Take Shark Tale for example, why would I want to see an animated movie starring big names like Will Smith if all I’m going to be able to imagine when I hear that voice is Will Smith instead of a rapping shark? Some actors translate to voice quite well, naturally, since they are total performers, but others simply aren’t trained or skilled in vocal performance.
Then that Phil Hartman section’s great too. WMYTWJY.
