People were wanting to hire me for their voice over projects merely because they saw me on television!
Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) May 14, 2012
There is something to be said for celebrity endorsements, whether from the celebrity themselves or a character they play. It can have a huge impact on the public as well as the endorsed one. Such was the case for actor and voice over talent, D.C. Douglas.
While Douglas was rehearsing his scene for CBS’ “2 Broke Girls” last month, the show’s star, Kat Dennings, commented on how nice his voice was. He admitted that he also does voice over in between his film and TV work. The next day the writers had worked in a few references to his dulcet tones.
A month after the “2 Broke Girls” episode aired, Douglas was still getting inquiries through his web based voice over business, My Voice Over Guy, because of that one scene.
“It was one of those things that I got a kick out of in the moment, but I had no idea how much it would actually affect my voice over business once it aired,” says Douglas. “People were wanting to hire me for their voice over projects merely because they saw me on television. It’s a wonderfully strange business I’m in.”
In addition to providing voice overs for commercials, documentaries, web content and corporate projects through his home studio and website, he also has a notable career in Hollywood. Videogame fans know Douglas for voicing Albert Wesker in the “Resident Evil” franchise and Legion in the “Mass Effect” franchise.
His national commercial credits include a couple of “Real People” Geico campaigns, a McDonald’s “Be The Sizzle” campaign, and he can currently be heard as the tiger in the animated Netflix commercial. Also in the animated world, Douglas voices Chase the police car in The Hub’s “Transformers: Rescue Bots” cartoon.
Douglas's on-camera credits range from “Criminal Minds” and “NCIS: Los Angeles” to “Raising Hope” and “Hot In Cleveland.”
“I usually try to keep my two careers segregated,” Douglas says, “but the ‘2 Broke Girls’ thing was such a big national jolt of business that I decided to incorporate the episode into my voice over sizzle reel. That’s a first for me.”
