SPECIAL GUESTS


David Kaye!DAVID KAYEíS voice over career began with General Hawk in the DIC animation series, G.I. Joe in 1989. Working as an on air talent for radio station CKLG (LG73) quickly became less interesting as both on camera and behind the mic roles started taking up more time. Over the next decade and a half, Davidís on camera burgeoned along with his voice career. On camera opportunities came in the form of guest roles on numerous TV series and movies such as the X-Files, Battlestar Galactica and Happy Gilmore with Adam Sandler.

Also during this time, David was being cast in some of the first, of what soon would be hundreds of, animation shows and video games. So many, in fact, this now became the main focus of his career and heís never looked back.

Davidís biggest moment was when he was cast as Predacon Commander Megatron in 1996, in the hugely popular series Beast Wars ("Beasties" in Canada) that would go on to run for three seasons of "the most fun you could ever have!" says David. Thus began an almost twenty year relationship with the "Transformers" franchise, from his role as the Decepticon Megatron from the Armada series, crossing over in 2007 to voice the Heroic Autobot Optimus Prime in "Transformers: Animated", thus becoming the only actor in the history of the franchise to play the lead villain AND the lead hero, to his most recent role as the Insection Hardshell in the award winning series "Transformers: Prime."

After twenty-plus years AWAY from the part that started it all, David found himself returning to the franchise where it all began... G.I. Joe! In the Renegades series, he could be heard as Scarlettís father, and he also introduced every episode as the expo voice during the opening titles!

As the work keeps coming in, Davidís voice can be heard in Insomniacís "Ratchet & Clank" video game series as the loveable robot Clank. He's also been featured in "Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions" as "Mysterio," "Nick Fury" and "Captain America" in "Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2," "Missing Link" in "Monsters vs Aliens," the game and many more.

David is now working on another highly popular series "Ben 10" as the lead villain, as well as working with the great JG Quintel on "Flap Jack" and "The Regular Show."

With on-going commitments for movie trailers, network promos for ABC, Fox, CW and a host of radio and television affiliates and a lot of commercial work, the days get a little tight from time to time. So much so that he even has a unit that he can use to record from his car. "Donít worry, I actually have to pull over," he says.

The projects continue to line up and unfortunately, the days donít get any longer. David says, "You wonít ever hear me complain, though. Iím working with the coolest people on the planet and deeply love what I do... I have though put in a request in for a 28 hour day!"
