Hello, everyone. I'm looking for voice actors for a pretty ambitious animated series I'm working on. If you want to read all about it, you can go here:
But here's what you need to know:
Giant Radioactive Rabid Rubber Moose
The show is about a high-school loser named Stevil. He has a horrible life and incredibly bad luck. He is constantly picked on by students and teachers alike.
One day, He wishes for his life to be better, and a rubber moose toy comes flying out of the sky and into his lap. Now, seemingly at random, the moose transforms into a giant, radioactive, rabid, rubber moose with the power to crush stuff, eat stuff and generally do the things giant, radioactive, rabid, rubber mooses are renowned for.
Stevil is unappreciative of the moose, and tries in vain to get shot of it several times, but is unsuccessful. While always acting with good intentions, the moose tends to cause more problems than it solves, leaving Stevil in a lot of sticky situations involving horrible demons, monsters, aliens and all-round bad stuff.

From left to Right: Stevil, the Moose, Raina, John, Bill, Ms. Morgan, Sam, Alice, Malachi
Bio: Stevil is a loser and a misfit. He hates his life and everything around him and isn't afraid to sulk and moan about it. He's at times arrogant, ignorant and self-centered and at other times moreso. Stevil has incredibly bad luck and it seems that if someone dropped an anvil off a building from 3 blocks away, it would stop in mid-air and wait for stevil to walk underneath it before it finished dropping. When the moose comes into his life Stevil wants nothing to do with it, but eventually comes to form a bond with it. Although the series is named after the moose, Stevil is really the main character. He's a very weird loser, a cartoon version of Rivers Cuomo and an unlikely hero, who still manages to be loveable despite all his faults.
Voice type: Average american teen. Slightly whiny and arrogant. Possibly like Fry from Futurama.
Audition Line 1: "Stupid Ms. Morgan! Who does she think she is?! And that moron Bill! One of these days I'm going to - to give him a good tongue-lashing!"
Audition Line 2: "Tell you what John, why don't you wait outside while I go find Raina, because I believe you are seriously starting to give me a brain tumour."
Role type: Main character, so pretty major. 20 lines in the first episode with more in subsequent ones.
Bio: Stevil's, sort of, best friend. He sits next to Stevil in the cafeteria, and in the classroom. He is a very strange young man, and many people want to send him to an insane assylum. John has some sort of brain disorder rendering him incapable of achieving much of anything except eating candy corn (his favorite candy), and generally doing things to make Stevil's life more difficult.
Voice type: Slightly high-pitched, stupid sounding teenager.
Audition line 1: "Y'know Stevil, when I was little, whenever I felt down, my uncle used to always sing me this song --"
Audition Line 2: "Man, I can't wait to go see "Dim Veisel Versus the Dirty Rotten Commies" today, I even bought Dim Viesel magazine, it's the highest authority on Dim Viesel anywhere in the world!"
Role type: Fairly prominent. Not many lines in the first episode, but more in subsequent ones.
Bio: Bill thinks Stevil is a loser. At least twice as arrogant and self-assured as Stevil, Bill is the most popular guy around, and loves to pick on "losers" like Stevil.
Voice type: Loud, sarcastic, cruel, has been smoking since he was eleven.
Audition Line 1: "Tell you what, loser: Meet me at the flagpole after school and we'll settle this like men!"
Audition Line 2: "Oooh, Stevil-Mc-Stupidface just gave me the evil eye! I'm gonna crap my pants!"
Role type: Pretty minor. Pops up now and again.
Bio: Inept spy sent by a shadowy organisation to apprehend Stevil and capture the moose.
Voice type: Slightly nerdy, eager and naive. Doesn't have to be american, can be from anywhere.
Audition Line 1: "Well, I think someone's been using this computer to look at porn again, because it's full of spyware and stuff."
Audition Line 2: "Class, I'm your new substitute teacher, Mr. Smith, but you can call me Sam."
Role type: Fairly major in the first few episodes. Doesn't appear after that.
Bio: Sam and Alice's boss. A huge imposing guy, but very cultured and soft-spoken.
Voice type: Deep, soft-spoken voice like James Earl Jones or Samuel L. Jackson.
Audition Line 1: "Do you know what this means?"
Audition Line 2: "This thing, where is it?"
Audition Line 3: "Yes, but - where will it come down?"
Role type: He only has those three lines! May pop up again some other time, but not likely.
Bio: Only appears in shadow. Sam and Alice and Malachi's boss.
Voice type: Deep, calm and evil.
Audition Line 1: "...and so, we've managed to track this things radiation signature down to the house of an ordinary suburban family. I simply want whatever this thing is found and brought here. So, of course, I would want my best technician on the job.Unfortunately, Mister Malachi has holiday time booked for today. So, you it is, Sam."
Audition Line 2: "oh, and if this nice suburban family should get in your way, do be a dear and eviscerate them for me, won't you?"
Role type: Appears occasionally. Only 3 lines in the first story.
Bio: Raina is a smart, confident yet tom-boyish teenage girl who doesn't really fit into any particular social circle, and is thus left with social misfits Stevil and John. For all their faults, Raina is nevertheless fond of them, yet often despairs at Stevil's arrogance and John's overwhelming stupidity. She is both the brains and the heart of the operation, and when she discovers Stevil has found a rubber floating moose as a pet, she forms an instant bond with the creature.
Voice type: Standard american teenage girl.
Audition Line 1: "You think Stevil's been acting weird lately? I'm a little worried..."
Audition Line 2: "Stevil, are you having another one of your "episodes"? Like when your Mom found all your midget porn?"
Role type: Appears regularly. Very few lines in the first episode.
Slightly less inept spy sent by the same shadowy organistion as Sam. Not very tolerant of Sam. Aspires to be a kick-ass action heroine. Typically angry and sarcastic.
Voice type: Sarcastic, short-tempered, average american female
Audition Line 1: "Listen, have you ever actually been on a field mission before? Had any first hand experience whatsoever at this whole spying thing, ever, at all?"
Audition Line 2: "Right, precisely, why don't you go to this kids school and see if he knows anything? or just go drown or something. I don't care."
Role type: Appears a good bit in the first story.
NOTE: She is a female character, but due to the rough nature of her voice, could be played by a man.
Voice type: Raspy, bitter and indifferent. Like Patty and Selma from the Simpsons.
Audition Line 1: "Today, class, we're going to be going over some of Shakespeare's most famous plays and highlighting all of the homoerotic text. I hope you all brought your industrial strength highlighters."
Audition Line 2: "Stevil, would you care to share with us just what it was which made you scream like a little sissy girl with pigtails, hmmm?"
Role type: Appears every now and then.
Bio: The moose is almost like Stevil's pet in the series. More or less it's own character with no real ties to Stevil --it just chooses him because it's too lazy to find a better home. Like a pet that takes care of you more than you of it. It doesn't talk, however it does quack. Essentially a care-free, fun-loving creature, the moose can transform to the violent, Giant Radioactive, Rabid Rubber Moose at times of great strees, and can do great damage, often to Stevil's dismay.
Voice type: It just quacks like a duck to communicate. So, for samples, send a sample of realistic quacking noises in varying emotions - angry, happy, sad etc...It's a bit off the wall, but try to think of it like Chewbacca in Star Wars.
Thanks in advance to anyone who auditions.
