  • This guy is one of the most multi-talented actors out there. From cartoons, to drama, to comedy...the list goes on and on. He needs a show!

    Mr. Z is a rather talented fellow. He has a gift for comedy in any situation. Aside from his obvious acting gifts, I LOVE his cartoon voice-overs! Vinne from Biker Mice is still (10 or so years later) one of my favorite cartoon characters. There is something about his voice that just screams hero. I hope to see or hear him somewhere soon!
