Jack on “Ultimate Spider-Man”

As we announced before, Jack will be voicing Doctor Strange in Ultimate Spiderman Sunday, July 8th at 11 a.m. EST. Here are a few excerpts of Wired.com’s article about it, and a little Youtube clip!

From the article:

I had the opportunity this week to talk to Coleman, who plays Dr. Strange, the master of mystic arts, and Greg Grunberg, who is guest-starring as Uncle Ben, this week about their voice roles. Both, of course, were in Heroes, and Loeb was a co-executive producer on the show. Adrian Pasdar, another Heroes alumni, has voiced Iron Man on the show.

Grunberg and Coleman both said it was a pleasure to be working with Loeb again and that they were happy to be involved with the show. [...]

Unlike Grunberg, Coleman is less familiar with voice work and his first try at it did not breed confidence. He was the voice on the other end of the phone breaking up with Meryl Streep in the movie Music of the Heart. Coleman said the multiple Oscar-winning actress was watching him record the scene and that it was very intimidating. And then, he said, they cut his voice work because it worked better with just Streep in the frame, “We get used to, as actors, to tying the words in with our actions. Voice acting is a very different art form and I have tremendous respect for those who do it very well.”

He said Loeb made him feel comfortable on set and he tried reading the lines several different ways. When he went back in to re-record and finalize the voice, he said he was able to get the performance up to where it needed to be.

Coleman said he’d love to do more voice work, especially with Spider-Man: “The world of Spider-Man was one of my first comic book loves. I loved the complexity of it, that Spider-Man was a hero who could’t solve everything, and that Peter Parker had problems as well. He’s always been one of my faves.”

Looking forward to hearing Jack… it’ll tide us over until Fall…
