San Diego Comic Convention,-San Diego California, July 19th, 2003
I was a regular for the San Diego Comic Convention, I went every year for many years, back when Comic Con was not the media circus it is now. Cosplaying was also the norm for me. My long-time friend and voice actor, Wally Wingert dressed as Adam West's Batman, I was dressed in the Julie Newmar style Catwoman. I remember hating that mask. Since then we got a better mask for it, this was the first one I used.
Wally is friends with voice actor Jim Cummings since both are in that industry. Jim was there as a guest. He spotted Wally and came up to us. This is the first time I met Jim, I had only heard about him through Wally so this was an awesome treat!
Jim Cummings has done just about everything and anything under the sun when it comes to voice acting, he is amazing!
He had recorded the voice for Frollo in the new Kingdom Hearts game, but then was replaced recently by another voice actor, Corey Burton. Both men are amazing and thankfully there is no hard feelings on this switch.
Wally has done quite a lot of voice acting himself too. Since knowing him for many years I have literally watched him grow in this career. A long way since his DJ days on the radio. He's Almighty Tallest Red on Invader Zim, Renji from Bleach and countless other roles. Wally can be heard every night as the announcer voice on Jay Leno.
