Transformers voice actor Daran Norris to attend TFcon Los Angeles 2019
I wonder if someone will ask him to do the voice of Venom from the PS1 Spider-Man game from 2000. I’d be surprised if he remembers it.
I saw him on stage at LA Comic Con in 2017 but couldn't get an autograph from him (he wasn't at his table after the panel for some reason), so this announcement makes me very happy, thanks TFCON! Daran is also Cosmo from Fairly Oddparents and is in Veronica Mars and iZombie.
Cool. I never seen any of those shows but I knew he was that Cosmo guy because a YouTuber by the name of GodzillaMendoza (Who I totally recommend you watch, he has great and hilarious content) said in the first episode of his Spider-Man video games retrospective that he was that his mind was blown due to the fact that Daran Norris was the voice of Venom in the first game he reviewed and Cosmo. At TFCon, I hope someone asks for the “Surf the web! Surf the web!” line from the game.
Also did Timmy's dad too.
Indeed, he is a prolific and underrated VA and character actor.
In particular, his rendition of J. Jonah Jameson in The Spectacular Spider-Man series is second perhaps only to J.K. Simmons. And I loved him in the bizarre, quirky Nickelodeon show, NDSSG - and I wasn't in the target demographic for that program.
If you've never seen Veronica Mars, you have homework. The first two seasons were AMAZING. The movie & novels are good, too. They're doing a revival this year on Hulu, and IIRC, the original seasons will be on Hulu too, probably in advance of the revival's debut. If you enjoy snark and/or noir/hardboiled detective stories, you need VM in your life.
And Daran Norris is delightful in that show.
I never knew he did the voice of Jameson in The Spectacular Spider-Man. And I’ll put it on the list.
I hate living so far.... I would have loved to get my Knock Out signed by him.
Steve Blum (tfp starscream) married Daran's ex-wife.
I think it would save time to only list who ISN'T going to be at TFCON at this point.
You are so lucky to have these meetings. I will have to attend one of these once in my life.
Two I'm surprised about are Judd Nelson and Susan Blu. But then if they're focusing on 1st and 2nd seasons that makes sense. This one looks like a huge event and I'm so fortunate that it's happening so close to me. I won't be able to afford to see everyone so I'm going to get my list together.
The doctor is in the house. Nice, jealous of those who get to go!
Give us TFP Masterpiece line!
He also played Armada Red Alert in the PS2 game. It was his Transformers debut!
As the Prime line was winding down, I picked up a Knock Out figure in the hopes that he might show up at the then-forthcoming final BotCon (2016). He didn't, but I'm pleased to discover that I still have the package unopened on a hook on the side of my bookshelf. I can finally get the figure signed now!
