Greetings, potential voice actors!
Sonic F needs YOUR help! What’s Sonic F? Why, it’s a hilarious parody series and you can check it out here:
Why do we need your help? Although we have our main cast sorted, we need to fill some minor, reoccurring characters. We COULD just fill these characters ourselves, but we’re committed to making an entertaining and diverse show instead of two or three actors playing all the voices.
Bio: The loving maid and cook of the Thorndyke family. She has an ambiguous Latina heritage.
Voice type: Super gruff and low. We’re aiming for a John DiMaggio type. Preferably played by a male actor, but the role is open to females as well. Feel free to try any number of Latina accents with Ella, but it’s not mandatory.
Line 01: “Hello, master Chris! And who are these crazy furry people?”
Line 02: “Oh, sure, I don’t mind cooking and cleaning for four more people, it’s not like I have anything else to do during the day.”
Line 03: “They told me I was crazy when I said the kitchen appliances would try and kill us one day. . . Well whose laughing’ now, baby?!”
Bio: The dedicated butler and self-appointed security guard of the Thorndykes.
Voice type: Medium to low and smooth. You can try with an American and/or an Asian accent, preferably either a Japanese or Korean accent, depending on the direction his character is taken. Male actors only.
Line 01: “Master Chris, I understand your unique hobbies, but the giant stuffed animals are just sad.”
Line 02: “For the last time, I’m Korean-American, not Japanese! The only karate I know is from Wii Fit!”
Line 03: “I am not letting that little snot kick the bucket on my watch! He practically signs my paychecks!”
Bio: Old, elderly, white man. Fat too.
Voice Type: Open to interpretation. We’d like to avoid a George W. Bush impression, but otherwise, go crazy. Male actors only.
Line 01: “These damned, fuzzy, illegal aliens are going to cost me reelection.”
Line 02: “You’re telling me that one pre-pubescent fox child has more firepower in the form of a homemade jet than our entire air force? All right then.”
Jeremy Wise (The President’s aid)
Bio: Whiney, brown nosing, assistant to the President.
Voice Type: High to Medium. Very animated and a little camp, but not over the top. Also prone to fits of RAGE. Male actors only.
Line 01: “Yes, sir, good, sir, fine job, sir! You’re an inspiration to the people!”
Line 02: “That’s right, fat boy, just keep yucking it up for the mouth breathers, and then when everything falls apart, I’ll be the one who gets all the glory!”
Bio: Sweet, sensible girl. Has an unhealthy obsession with puppets?
Voice type: High to Medium. No real direction with her, feel free to experiment. Female actors only.
Line 01: “Oh, yeah, haha, a wheelchair joke. You’re a real humanitarian, Sonic.”
Line 02: (spoken as Barney-like puppet) “Hey-a kids! You can tell me all your fears and worries, I won’t tell anyone, especially authority figures!”
Bio: Eggman’s hyper-active, candy obsessed, messenger robo.
Voice type: High. Can be squeaky or scratchy depending on the emotion. Male and female actors can try this one.
Line 01: “How are fun-sized candy bars fun for anyone? A giant-sized candy bar, now that’s fun!!”
Line 02: “Dr. Eggman wants you to meet him at his base, if you survive my explosion that is. Hahahahahaha!”

Notes: Sonic F is generally a hard “PG” in terms of content and there may be some mild swearing (“damn”, “hell”), but we’re willing to negotiate depending on your situation.
Sonic F is an ongoing series and most of these characters are reoccurring. If you don’t want to commit to the series, than please don’t bother auditioning. Same goes if you have trouble keeping deadlines.
