Howdy there, Scream Freaks! If you wait long enough to catch the credits at the end of our shows, you’ll see names zippin’ by of some very talented voice actors. Most of them joined the show when we added a whole new roster of characters in Season 3, but with the epic war-torn story we’ve got for season 4, we had to reach out to even more talented folks gracious enough to lend their voices. While original characters are a cake walk to cast, it’s an entirely different beast findin’ folks who sound like a particular actor or character fans have expectations for. The hardest of these to cast were Jeffrey Combs’ Full Moon characters and the Toxic Avenger.

Luckily, after months of auditions, we finally found a couple of guys who could act and thankfully sound like these characters. Doug Powell plays all three of Jeffrey Combs’ alter egos (Dr. West, Dr. Tillinghast, and Dr. Mordrid), and Jason Underwood voices Toxie. It can be tricky impersonatin’ an actor playin’ multiple roles, but Doug pulled it off beautifully and far exceeded our hopes for capturin’ Combs deadpan theatrics we love so much. As for Jason, he was a natural for playin’ a hideously deformed creature of superhuman size and strength.

As Troma fans know, there’s two ways to play Toxie. Boomin’ and heroic like in Toxic Avenger and Citizen Toxie or eagerly light-hearted like in Toxic Avenger 2-3 and the Toxic Crusaders cartoon series. It was a  tough call for which approach to take with Toxie, but we grew up watchin’ the cartoon series and simply enjoy Ron Fazio’s performance as the monstrous hero in parts two and three the most. With that in mind, we thought Jason was a shoe in for voicin’ New Jersey’s first superhero. We knew Jason had a genuine knack for comedy after seein’ him perform improv with his group Alchemy Comedy, fellow filmmakers showed us he could act in their short films, and he’s tall. Why’s bein’ tall matter? We think it helps sell Toxie’s voice more if comin’ from someone close to Toxie’s size and build that can deliver lines with the same resonance.

Anyway, Jason has a weekly podcast he does with his friend Evan Harris called The Bearded Ones, and unbeknown to us, he’s been promotin’ Screaming Soup! and sharin’ behind the scenes exclusives on playin’ Troma’s cash cow from time to time. We had to call the big guy out on this, and immediately return the favor with a shout out on our weekly blog here. If you’re needin’ a humorous podcast to listen to, give them a listen as they poke good fun at anything and everything they can talk about from all things pop culture and history to science and even the Gingerdead Man at They’re good honest guys who just want to entertain and inspire while helpin’ other creative artists get their voices heard.

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! Once again we find ourselves coming face to skull with the curious cats surfing the net wanting a conversation with the web’s #1 animated horror host show, and we were all too willing to shoot the shit. This week we’re interviewed by our friends over at the Earth Station One Network who are hot on reporting all things geek! In retrospect, we probably didn’t talk enough about the show itself which is our bad, but live and learn you know? We’re sure they’ll be more to come. Click HERE to listen to this exclusive interview from earlier in April’15.

This interview was made possible from our brush with ESO co-host Michael Gordon who we first heard about after reading his indy comic “Tiki Zombie” which is a fun story he came up with about a bartender named Tiki Z who is cursed with a giant tiki head and protecting the island he lives on from all types of crazy characters with bad intentions. You should contact Michael directly and get a copy today! Below is our artsy thank you we sent him for bringing us onto the show with Tiki Z having to break up a drunken brawl Deadwest has in his bar. Michael was so impressed, he said he’d print it in his next Tiki Zombie comic he’s working on. Cool, huh?

Other than that, be sure to catch up on all the latest Screaming Soup! episodes so far for season 2!
