Animation Stars Step Into the Spotlight in New Documentary I Know That Voice

John DiMaggio

You can say this about voice-over actors: They love to talk. One hundred and fifty of Hollywood's busiest performers and casting agents from the often overlooked industry enthusiastically share their stories in the new documentary I Know That Voice, available on VOD platforms and at iTunes starting Tuesday.

Director Lawrence Shapiro was inspired to make the film when he saw how animated (pun intended) fans became when meeting his friend John DiMaggio, voice of the curmudgeonly-yet-beloved robot Bender on Futurama. "I'll admit it, applause is great," says DiMaggio, one of the industry's most popular and prolific stars, whose résumé also includes roles on Adventure Time, The Penguins of Madagascar and Kim Possible. But outside of fan-centric events like Comic-Con, voice actors work in relative obscurity, which motivated DiMaggio to sign on as producer. "I want my peers to get a little bit of recognition. These are some of the most talented people I know, and some of the most brilliant character actors that I know."

Exclusive: Zatanna and John Constantine Make Magic in Smallville Comic Book

Smallville Comic Book

Smallville is about to get magical. The DC Comics digital series based on the long-running TV show takes a supernatural sidetrack in a new storyline featuring Zatanna and John Constantine.

The magically powered Zatanna, best known for casting spells spoken backwards, returns to the world of Clark Kent and Co. in "Harbinger," a story beginning Friday that runs parallel to the comic's main narrative. Introduced in Season 8 of the TV show (played by Serinda Swan), Zatanna is now in London. "She's taken her show on the road, using her tour as a cover to run down and deal with all the messes/enchanted/cursed everythings her father left behind when he died," says Bryan Q. Miller, who writes the comic book extension of the TV series. "By the time we catch up with her in 'Harbinger,' she's closing in on the final item on that list."

Cartoon Network's MAD Doubles the Funny for 100th Episode Celebration

MAD

To celebrate its 100th episode, MAD is getting "Super"-sized. The animated sketch-comedy series features a parody of the Superman blockbuster Man of Steel in Monday's double-sized show (Nov. 11 at 8:30/7:30c on Cartoon Network). Producer Kevin Shinick recruited Weird Al Yankovic and Henry Winkler to voice Superman and his father, Jor-El, respectively in the sketch, which takes a playful jab at the film's controversial violence.

The network gave Shinick 22-minutes to play with — twice the Emmy-nominated show's typical episode length — and he's stuffed it with a variety of pop-culture parodies and comedy bits. The featured musical sketch, "The Worst Show Ever," is inspired by a certain boy band. "It's One Direction's take on having to watch MAD," Shinick says, emphasizing his series' self-deprecating attitude. Yankovic will voice the band's manager.
