    I've always liked him. Very funny dude. It's weird how his career veered off in this direction, but he seems to enjoy it!

    Nice. Good to see he's doing some homework about the character. I don't mind people's interpretations in new series', but I love that he's doing something to give the character a nostalgic feel.

    His work as Green Lantern was fantastic. Looking forward to hearing his Jazz!

    I think you're confusing him with Orlando Jones. Unless Phil was a 7-up guy too.

    I really, really like Phil LaMarr's voice and he comes off as such a nice dude in printed interviews that it just adds to his overall awesomeness.

    I hope his Jazz sounds like his Black Vulcan/Green Lantern. In your pants.

    They were both on MadTv but youre right I did confuse him for 7up guy, Orlando Jones. I like Lamarr as the UPS guy, he was hilarious. I could swear I saw Lamarr in a serious role recently but cant remember where; anyone know?

    Phil Lamarr is an awesome voice actor.

    The guy can do Green Lantern talking to Static Shock and you would never know it was the same guy.
    Plus, his exploding brains contributed to one of the funniest scenes in Pulp Fiction.

    I could totally hear jazz sounding like a bisexual-vampire-imaginary-rostafarian-accountant-with a green ring AND a kitana... Awsome!

    Thats the serious role I was thinking about; thanx.

    What about Mark Hamill for Starscream? He did a good Joker

    Good interview, good guy, and very happy to see him researching the history and getting into it.

    Animated will have Wilt AND Eduardo! Hooray! :D

    Mark Hamill is awesome, but Tom Kenney (Spongebob, Eduardo, The Penguin) is Starscream.
    Kenney is equally awesome IMO.
