Join me for an exciting interview with actor Andrew Kavadas the man behind the voice of Arthur King from King Arthur and the Knights of Justice. This was by far one of my absolute favorite animated shows growing up as it dealt with Arthurian Legend, King Arthur. History has always been one of my favorite subjects and that combined with an amazing voice cast, dealing with King Arthur and his Knights in a unique and mythical way was mind blowing as a kid. If you haven't seen this series I highly recommend King Arthur and the Knights of Justice to anyone and everyone. I have always thought the concept of this show would make an excellent live action movie. Anyway, not only did Andrew voice King Arthur aka Arthur King. He also voiced Simon Belmont on Captain N: The Game Master. Last December we had actor Matt Hill on the show who was the voice behind Captain N so I hope you will all check that episode out as well. Andrew has had a very unique and diverse career in voiceover and it was a true honor and pleasure having him on the show. I hope you all enjoy todays 96th episode with, Andrew Kavadas.

David has been a lot of amazing characters during his career but the one you may know him as is probably Gorilla Grodd from the CW's, "The Flash". He is the telepathic Gorilla who has a God complex. As he becomes more and more intelligent he eventually wants all humans to be subject to his superiority. Thats when the Flash steps in to set him straight letting him know that humans are not his to own. Along with voicing Gorilla Grodd if you have little ones they may know him better as Drax the Destroyer from Disney XD's Guardians of the Galaxy. David has voiced iconic characters for the Transformers franchise in two different renditions the first was Beast Wars: Transformers where he voiced Depth Charge who was a Manta Ray which was very unique as he was a water Maximal (Autobot). He later was able to go from voicing a good guy to a bad guy on Transformers Prime as the Decepticon Shockwave who is in my opinion one of the scariest Deceptions ever. Another iconic character David voiced was the Legendary Robocop from Robocop: Alpha Cammando. It was a more comedic take on the character but a very funny one indeed. The last character I will mention today is one from a less highly acclaimed show but one that was really unique, exciting, and very fun to watch. The show was Spider-Man Unlimited which aired in (1999) where David voiced a Humanoid Tiger named Lord Tyger. I really hope you all enjoy Episode #75 with my Special Guest, David Sobolov.
