SCREAMING AT THE BEARDED ONES PODCAST!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! If you wait long enough to catch the credits at the end of our shows, you’ll see names zippin’ by of some very talented voice actors. Most of them joined the show when we added a whole new roster of characters in Season 3, but with the epic war-torn story we’ve got for season 4, we had to reach out to even more talented folks gracious enough to lend their voices. While original characters are a cake walk to cast, it’s an entirely different beast findin’ folks who sound like a particular actor or character fans have expectations for. The hardest of these to cast were Jeffrey Combs’ Full Moon characters and the Toxic Avenger.

Luckily, after months of auditions, we finally found a couple of guys who could act and thankfully sound like these characters. Doug Powell plays all three of Jeffrey Combs’ alter egos (Dr. West, Dr. Tillinghast, and Dr. Mordrid), and Jason Underwood voices Toxie. It can be tricky impersonatin’ an actor playin’ multiple roles, but Doug pulled it off beautifully and far exceeded our hopes for capturin’ Combs deadpan theatrics we love so much. As for Jason, he was a natural for playin’ a hideously deformed creature of superhuman size and strength.

As Troma fans know, there’s two ways to play Toxie. Boomin’ and heroic like in Toxic Avenger and Citizen Toxie or eagerly light-hearted like in Toxic Avenger 2-3 and the Toxic Crusaders cartoon series. It was a  tough call for which approach to take with Toxie, but we grew up watchin’ the cartoon series and simply enjoy Ron Fazio’s performance as the monstrous hero in parts two and three the most. With that in mind, we thought Jason was a shoe in for voicin’ New Jersey’s first superhero. We knew Jason had a genuine knack for comedy after seein’ him perform improv with his group Alchemy Comedy, fellow filmmakers showed us he could act in their short films, and he’s tall. Why’s bein’ tall matter? We think it helps sell Toxie’s voice more if comin’ from someone close to Toxie’s size and build that can deliver lines with the same resonance.

Anyway, Jason has a weekly podcast he does with his friend Evan Harris called The Bearded Ones, and unbeknown to us, he’s been promotin’ Screaming Soup! and sharin’ behind the scenes exclusives on playin’ Troma’s cash cow from time to time. We had to call the big guy out on this, and immediately return the favor with a shout out on our weekly blog here. If you’re needin’ a humorous podcast to listen to, give them a listen as they poke good fun at anything and everything they can talk about from all things pop culture and history to science and even the Gingerdead Man at beardedpodsnetwork.com. They’re good honest guys who just want to entertain and inspire while helpin’ other creative artists get their voices heard. If you want the specific podcasts with Jason talkin’ about bein’ on Screaming Soup!, follow this LINK.

SCREAMING AT VOICE ACTORS!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! As always, things have been hectic around here as we continue our never ending efforts to bring you entertaining reviews of some of the most outrageous horror/sci-fi movies this side of the grave for your viewing pleasure. Lately, we’ve realized our show has been growing at a fast pace and have been reaching out to talents in the horror community for help. This mostly has to do with needing more voice talent for our expanding cast, and plenty of people have been quick to respond already. What’s better than being the voice of a cartoon character? Now, if you or anyone you know is interested in providing voices for future episodes of Screaming Soup! just hit us up at screamingsoup@gmail.com (preferably with a demo reel with all the different voices you can do for us to consider). Given you may be half way across the world from us or in another dimension, you will more than likely need access to your own recording equipment if we were to use you. And most importantly (or sadly), this would be pro bono work. With our show still up and coming, the best compensation we can offer you is a credit to add to your resume of work for future gigs that will hopefully be well paying jobs.

We’ve also been contacted by other horror shows out there who requested doing cameos with us which we’re down for as long as we can work it into our production schedule. One such show we’ve had a lot of fun talking with is “Your Final Answer with the Grim Reaper.” This guy’s got a lot of energy and enthusiasm for what he does, and certainly has talent we’re happy he’s lending to upcoming episodes of Screaming Soup! Be sure to support him through Youtube and Twitter.

Other than that, we should have an all new Re-Animated Review up and running within 2 weeks, and are currently working on the final drafts of some new Screaming Soup! Holiday Eeeh!-Cards for those needing some unique cards for birthdays and Valentine’s. These macabre messages for friends and loved ones should be up and available by next week.

As a reminder, be sure to use our social buttons in the upper right corner of the site. Follow our tweets, subscribe to our Youtube channel, like our Facebook, watch and share all our vids, and keep that fan mail coming. I’ll see ya’ later Scream Freaks!
