Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 04, 2012
This past month, a trailer for the upcoming "Resident Evil 6" revealed that the villainous Wesker, voiced by actor and voice over talent, D.C. Douglas, would not appear in the popular video game. Nathan Narain, one of Douglas' biggest fans, took action; if he had to miss out on Douglas' voice in a zombie video game, then he would at least try to see him on a TV show about zombies. Narain led a petition on Twitter aimed at executive producer Glen Mazzara and the Bialy/Thomas casting agency to cast Douglas in an on-camera role on an episode of AMC's cult hit, "The Walking Dead."
Although he is also known as the voice of Legion in "Mass Effect" 2 and 3 and Chase on The Hub's "Transformers: Rescue Bots," Douglas has been a film and television actor for over 20 years. Most recently he appeared on NBC's "2 Broke Girls," ABC's "Castle," and TV Land's "Hot in Cleveland."
"It started as a simple question on Twitter," explains Douglas. "Nathan asked if I had ever been on 'The Walking Dead' and I told him I haven't. When he enthusiastically said I should be on the show, I joked back that I'd sign a petition like that. Next thing I knew, there was an actual petition!"
Fans jumped online to sign the petition, giving a variety of reasons for Douglas to be on the show. For instance, Samantha Linnert explains, "He's always given so much for the fans and I think he'd do wonderfully on 'The Walking Dead,'" while Kara Jones is more direct: "The voice actor of Albert Wesker on 'The Walking Dead?' Two words..... Hell, yes!"
"I have no idea if it will work," says Douglas, "but I'm tickled some of my Twitter fans are augmenting my agent's job! They have a special place in my cold, black heart. Zombie fans unite!"
Douglas can be seen guest starring on CBS's "NCIS: Los Angeles" May 8th and Comedy Central's "Workaholics" in June.
Douglas is represented by Dave Secor of the Daniel Hoff Agency for film and television: (323) 932-2500. AVO Talent represents Douglas for voice over.
