What are some of the weirdest creatures or inanimate objects you’ve ever played as a voice actor? Karyn O’Bryant played a headless chicken (in our Recent Work folder), Lee Gordon played a boneless chicken, and a 65 million year old turtle is one of mine. How about you?

I'm pretty sure that toenail fungus tops my list.

Besides the boneless chicken, I've also played an old discarded paint can, and several ping pong balls in a lottery machine. And there was the time I played two leaves in a commercial for one of those gutter guard devices. The leaves were named Oakey and Fred. I tried to get them to change Fred's name to Russell, but they didn't get it.

I’ve played a lot of objects that were facing death. I was one of several leaves that were afraid of being raked up by this new fancy rake, and a roofing tile in need of replacement. I played a chicken and a pig as featured ingredients in Nylabone Nubz Buds dog biscuits. I was also the announcer, but luckily that character survived that experience.

One of our members is well know for playing a pig in the past, and now he's playing a famous bird in a current movie.

I noticed elsewhere our UK friend Darren Altman played a strawberry for an hour and a half. Sweet deal.

I was flushed with pleasure to play... a toilet tank.

It was an end-cap point-of-sale video for Menard's, touting the benefits of the Danco HydroClean(R) Water-Saving Toilet Fill Valve.

Oddly, the character was not named John... but Tank.

A potato in a padded cell, driven mad by the delusion that he was not a potato but a grain of rice found in delicious Rispinos snacks.
