Manage episode 207070533 series 1252326
This week, as we're still recovering from the wonderful mania that is MCM Comic Con, we're bringing you a treasure trove of interviews from the con, including ‘Deadpool 2’ stars Brianna Hildebrand & Stefan Kapicic, ‘The Walking Dead’ stars Khary Payton & Cooper Andrews, plus the legend that is John DiMaggio, the voice of Futurama's Bender!
Khary Payton plays King Ezekiel on the zombie drama, leader of The Kingdom, and (until recently), owner of a pet tiger called Shiva. Along with that, he’s also well known for his voice work which includes a mass of video game characters, from Azrael in the Batman ‘Arkham’ games to Blade in ‘Marvel Heroes’, and characters in ‘Call of Duty’. However, the characters he’s best known for on the animation front are ‘Teen Titans’ hero Cyborg and Aqualad in ‘Young Justice’… A role which helped him first bond with his co-star, as you’ll hear.
Cooper Andrews stars as ‘Walking Dead’ fan favourite and sidekick to Ezekiel, the eternally happy, axe-wielding, Jerry. His other work has seen him appear as Yo-Yo in ‘Halt and Catch Fire’, and he’s soon to pop up in the new DC movie ‘Shazam!’
Brianna Hildebrand first appeared as the kick-ass Marvel character Negasonic Teenage Warhead in the 2016 film ‘Deadpool’ and she returns to reprise that role in this year’s ‘Deadpool 2’. Her other work includes the web series ‘Annie Undocumented’, Kerem Sanga’s ‘First Girl I Loved’, and the tv series adaptation of ‘The Exorcist’.
Serbian actor Stefan Kapicic provides the voice and motion capture for the CGI character of Colossus in ‘Deadpool’ and ‘Deadpool 2’. Stefan has starred in a number of Serbian movies, and popped up on US tv in episodes of ’24’, ‘The Event’ and ‘Counterpart’, and will soon be seen on the upcoming season of ‘Better Call Saul’.
Legendary voice actor John DiMaggio has provided vocals for a huge range of animated characters in shows such as 'Ben 10', 'Lego Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures', 'Samurai Jack', 'Rick and Morty', 'Justice League Action' and 'American Dad!' However, the two characters he's probably best known for are Jake in 'Adventure Time', and of course, sociopathic robot Bender in 'Futurama'. He can soon be heard providing voices on Matt Groening's new Netflix show, 'Disenchantment'.For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy
