Join me as we take a journey into the life of actor David Sobolov and learn all about his fascinating career in voiceover. 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.

Join me as today we take flight with a different cast member from the Spider-Man The Animated Series. Today we are speaking with Nick Jameson who is best known as Michael Morbius and Richard Fisk the Kingpins son. During the course of the show we see a human Michael turn into a Vampire due to a neogenics experiment gone wrong. We also see a relationship blossom with Michael and learn of his undying love and passion for Felicia Harding aka Black Cat. The character of Michael Morbius we placed in my mind by the one and only Nick Jameson. He brought such a unique character to life with his amazing and very talented voice and Michael Morbius is defiantly a favorite of mine because of his portrayal of the character. I was also surprised to learn that not only did he voice Michale Morbius but he was also the voice of the sinister Richard Fisk son of the Kingpin of Crime. Richard isn't see a whole lot in the series but when we do see him whomever crosses his path is in for a world of unexpected and unwanted villainy. The (1994) Spider-Man was just one of many projects Nick has lent his voice for he also played Sheriff Lewis on the animated movie Clifford's Really Big Movie, and played another super evil villain called Palpatine/Darth Sidious on the (2003) Cartoon Network show called Star Wars: Clone Wars not to be confused with Cartoon Networks, Star Wars: The Clone Wars yes the "The" is the only difference well and the animation style and about half or so of the cast being replaced but yes lol the show names are almost identical. Anyways, todays adventure is sure to get your blood pumping but beware there is a vampire on the loose named Michale Morbius. I hope you all really enjoy this in-depth look at Nick Jameson on my 63rd episode, Enjoy!!
