JACKSON PUBLICK (aka CHRIS MCCULLOUCH)

Here's a little treat that we recently unearthed.  Not long after the first season of "Venture Bros." was completed, and before we really knew what was going to happen to the very dead Hank and Dean, Colin got the chance to do a telephone interview with Mr. Publick.

This interview was actually done for Colin's elementary school television station.  Since our guest's "secret identity" of Chris McCulloch was "kinda sorta" still not public(k) knowledge, we couldn't use a photo of him to accompany his answers, as we did with Nick Bakay or James Urbaniak, so we opted to use clips from the show.  It was difficult to find sections long enough that wouldn't have gotten Colin expelled!

But here it is, a Blast From The Past....Ladies and Gentlemen: Jackson Publick!

PHIL LAMARR

When Colin started doing interviews, the one person he most wanted to talk to was "Justice League" voice artist and "Mad-TV" star Phil Lamarr.  After all, this was a kid who dressed up as BOTH Green Lantern and the UBS Guy the same Halloween!

After several years of wishing, he got the chance to talk to Phil via Kaijucam for this fun and informative interview.  Be sure and check out the Actors page for a short bonus clip.


 

 

 

 


 

SEAN SCHEMMEL

To most of the world, Sean Schemmel will be forever known for his star-making performance as Goku on "Dragonball Z".  But at Studio Kaiju, we have a soft spot for another role: the food-obsessed Gonard, a clueless actor playing the embodiment of evil in "Kappa Mikey's" show-within-a-show.

Although bearing a slight physical resemblance to his TV alter ego (sans the purple makeup), Sean is an exceptionally bright and intentionally funny guy. Enjoy!

 

 

 

 

 


 

JAMES URBANIAK

Coming to you directly from his home in Los Angeles, here is the voice of Dr. Thaddeus "Rusty" Venture himself, James Urbaniak!

Possibly one of the nicest guys in the world, James has kind words for everybody, even finding some nice things to say about Rusty's parenting skills!  We would also like to thank James for his support.  Literally moments after he mentioned the interview on his blog, hundreds of people immediately rushed over here to listen.

 

 

 

 

 

 


CORKY QUAKENBUSH

Here's a visit with one of the unsung heroes of "Mad-TV", the brains behind their terrific animated parodies, such as "Raging Rudolph", "CLOPS", and "Davey and the Son of Goliath".  Corky was kind enough to talk with Colin via Kaijucam about the painstaking process that creates those memorable moments.

 

 

 

 


 

CHUCK MCCANN

Here's a chat with a true animation legend.  Chuck McCann is a very familiar figure to those of us who grew up in the 1960's on, serving as at least half the cast of "Cool McCool", and (our personal favorite) The Thing in the "Fantastic Four" segments of "Marvel Action Hour".

This is kind of an unusual interview, focusing not so much on the many, many things he has done but rather on the things that inspired him, including a touching friendship with a childhood idol.

This was our very first Kaijucam interview, and we must apologize to Mr. McCann and to those of you watching for the somewhat muddy picture quality. We've learned alot since then.


 

 

 


 

SAM VINCENT
It was at an Anime convention in Toronto, September 2005 that our little boy found valhalla... walking through a crowded hall he looked over at a nice man sitting at a table with naught but a name sign at his table, but that was enough. How many ten-year olds recognize animation voice artists by name alone... and here he was, face-to-face with his first Ed, "Edd" or "Double D" from Cartoon Network's ED, EDD AND EDDY. Here Sam talks about what it means to be an Ed and also about a little role no one has ever heard of before, Athrun Zala, the pivotal character from the two GUNDAM SEED series.

TONY SAMPSON
Known for his work as "Eddy" on ED, EDD AND EDDY, voice actor Tony Sampson, who livened up a very successful Toronto convention in March 2006 was happy to go behind the scenes with TV's Colin and discuss being an Ed, being in anime, and his life in general.

PETER LAIRD
Perusing our site you'd think you would have to be an animation voice artist to get interviewed by us. But that's just not so. It also helps if you co-created one of the most successful multi-media giants in the entertainment industry. With success in the fields of comics, TV animation, TV live action, feature film production, computer animated feature film prodution, and video games, to name probably just a handful of his accomplishments, we proudly present Mr. Peter Laird (p.s., he's also the employer of site friend Mike Sinterniklaas, but we didn't know that at the time of this interview)

JAMIE MCGONICAL
Some people are truly hard to pigeon-hole with one description. At a June 2007 CollossalCon in Cleveland, Ohio we ran into anime voice artist/Broadway producer/AIDS activist/UN Representative Jamie McGonical. Jamie took a few minutes from his very busy schedule at the convention to talk with Studio Kaiju about his plans which include at this moment (mid-July 2007) spending a month in Nigeria with a group of young volunteers for the United Nations. He's a truly fascinating man who was charming and articulate. By the way, don't expect this to happen too often, but that interviewer is TV's Dad, not TV's Colin. He's apparently never been told about wearing loud shirts on video.... we're sorry for that.

MATT HILL
Always lead off with a strong showcase, and Ironman athlete cum voice artist Matt Hill, perhaps best known for either playing single "D" Ed on "Ed, Edd and Eddy" or Kira Yamato on "Gundam Seed" certainly fits the bill. He's a ball of energy and enthusiasm, and seems to really care about helping others. Here he takes on TV's Colin in interview, threatens to hurt him, and then runs afoul of  Toronto Convention Centre Security. All, of course, in Matt Hill Fashion.


...........................................................................................................................................................................................................
NICK BAKAY
Here's another oldie-but-goodie, Colin's 2004 phone interview with another famous voice, Nick Bakay, Producer/Writer of "Sabrina the Teenage Witch", as well as the voice of her not always faithful cat, Salem in both the live action and 1999 animated incarnations. He is also well known as Norbert, the laid back brother on Nickelodeon's somewhat inaccurately named "Angry Beavers". Also remembered for ESPN's "Tale of the Tape", and a brief stint on "In Living Color", Nick shares his thoughts on everything from sports to sharing an office with Jim Carrey to being the voice of...a book!

RICHARD IAN COX
Richard Cox is a popular guest at anime conventions all over the country, where he's fondly remembered for roles as diverse as the title role in "Inuyasha" and Quicksilver, Magneto's wise guy son, in "X-Men: Evolution". At the end of a very long day at a Toronto appearance in 2005, he stopped for a few moments to chat with TV's Colin.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EdfgjtLECeA
............................................................................................................................................................................................................
BRAD SWAILE
Noted voice artist Brad Swaile takes a few minutes to chat with TV's Colin about being among other things Amuro Ray on "Mobile Suit Gundam" and Nightcrawler on "X-Men Evolution". He's a very talented guy who knows how to please the crowds and has a very impressive resume.


............................................................................................................................................................................................................
KIRBY MORROW
Here's yet another "X-Men: Evolution" star, Kirby Morrow, who voiced team leader Cyclops. Before that, he lent his voice to another super-team leader, Leonardo, on the live action "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation". As he was very much in demand at a Toronto show in 2005, we were very fortunate to grab him for a quick interview.

CHRIS SABAT
You know him as Vegeta, the Saiyan Prince from "Dragonball Z". But he's more than that. A talented ADR, a voice-over artist, a sound technician and a producer of documentaries. He's built a decent career in video game sound work and is perhaps the hardest working ambassador to the fans any anime company ever had. He took some time out from charming fans at a 2005 appearance in Toronto, Ontario to discuss his career with TV's Colin.

............................................................................................................................................................................................................
SCOTT MCNEIL
The voice of Wolverine ("X-Men Evolution"), Duo Maxwell ("Gundam Wing") and a whole bunch of other cool animation, Scott is... well, he's an experience. At a 2005 convention in Toronto, Ontario, Scott worked something like 7 hours straight making certain every single person who stood in line to see him felt like they were the most special person in the world. An HOUR after the show ended and security was getting annoyed, the crowd thinned out. We were nervous because TV's Colin really wanted this interview. And Scott kept his promise and delivered a tour de force interview that blew us away. Find out why here...

JOHNNY YONG BOSCH
In Washington DC at the 2005 Katsucon convention we tracked down former Power Ranger Johnny Yong Bosch (if you don't know which one you'll have to watch the clip to find out...) to discuss his anime voice work, his live action work, and his video game voice work. Pretty good considering it was on the fly between events and we had slightly more than three minutes to set up, shoot, and clear out.



.............................................................................................................................................................................................................
MIKE SINTERNIKLAAS (2005)
Also at Katsucon we ran afoul of Dean Venture himself, Mike Sinterniklaas. Known for his work on "Venture Bros." and as Leonardo on the current Saturday Morning Fox Kids' series "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles", Mike introduced us to his world. Of note, in this installment, which was originally made for broadcast in an elementary school, Mike talks about a "Venture Bros." episode spotlighting his character -- Yes, Venture Fans, that one! He mentions Dean's embarrassing malady by name, several times, which caused broadcast to be delayed while school administrators decided whether or not to show it intact. In one of those rare instances where political correctness didn't win the day, it aired just as you see it here!



.............................................................................................................................................................................................................
MIKE SINTERNIKLAAS (2006)
Can't get enough Mike? Here's round two, so big it had to be cut into two parts, from Katsucon 2006 a year later. Here he introduces us to "Kappa Mikey." We weren't really too sure at the time.... but... w'ever. Now we're hooked. And you should be too.

.............................................................................................................................................................................................................
MIKE SINTERNIKLAAS (2007)
Detecting a theme here? in 2006 TV's Colin and Mikey Simon hisself, Mike Sinterniklaas looked at Mom and Dad and in unison begged us to come back to Katsucon in 2007. How DOES one resist those puppydog eyes? So here we are again with a THREE PART interview so loopy and off-card it's a testament to Convention-going and the body's ability to generate motion without any real sustenance. Spoiler warning, by part three it's getting very late at night and both host and guest are getting pretty punchy...

YURI LOWENTHAL
Best known to "Naruto" fans as Sasuke, boy-band haired friend to the title character, Yuri was interviewed at a Toronto convention in 2006 mostly about his work on Kids WB's "Legion of Superheroes" series as Young Superman. He's becoming a quite sought after talent in the animation industry and is also a live action film producer and actor. Two things to know about this weekend - It was the WORST weekend Studio Kaiju has ever endured, and the lighting in that location was tragic, resulting in Dad having to get uber-creative in how to make this look smooth and polished. Yuri, to his credit, will never know exactly how much he saved the day when he agreed to do this interview.


.............................................................................................................................................................................................................
GREG AYRES
In "Nerima Daikon Brothers" Greg sings. You don't get that a lot with Anime voice work. So TV's Colin spoke with Greg about the musical side of things in both Daikon Bros. and "Beck" another new anime with music added. Enjoy...

MIKE MCFARLAND
Vocie artist on "Dragonball Z" and ADR for "Fullmetal Alchemist" Mike McFarland took time out from his busy schedule at 2006's Katsucon in Washington DC to meet with TV's Colin and chat about the intricacies of voice directing.
