D.C. Douglas, voice of Chase on Transformers: Rescue Bots, joined the Best Damn Video Game Podcast to talk about Rescue Bots, his voice acting career, and more. (Please note that there is some language and adult discussion in the video, so be aware if you choose to watch from work.)

Transformers News: D.C. Douglas Talks Rescue Bots, Voice Acting, and More

Douglas gives a great overview of Rescue Bots, and how the show is a great introduction to the Transformers universe for young kids. He mentions that on Rescue Bots, there is no death, destruction, or Decepticons, which is an issue for some people. But he feels the series is a great start for young kids who are not quite ready to see the conflict of some more mature Transformers series, to get them interested in the franchise. But, Douglas says, Rescue Bots isn’t necessarily just for kids.

Once you’ve watched like, 3 episodes in a row, you kind of like, get into it, you know it’s like, for a 6 year old, but ah… the writers write the show...for what makes them laugh. So it’s stuff that works for kids but it ALSO works for adults.


D.C. Douglas talks about voice acting, and knowing that he wanted to be a voice actor as young as 7 years old, and became involved in community theater by 11. By age 19 he was in Hollywood doing auditions, where he met with a woman who he believed was auditioning him for an acting workshop. He was actually auditioning for a voice-over workshop, and the woman told him that he should consider studying voice acting, as it would help every facet of his acting. D.C. took her advice and studied voice acting, and made an effort at on-screen acting. After some time of small parts and extra roles, Douglas got into a group that handled crowd noise for commercials and the like, and he then segued into a variety of other commercial work, which evolved into anime work. He started doing some work in video games, becoming well known for Resident Evil and Mass Effect, among others.

He goes on to discuss how he ended up doing the video game voice acting he has done, as well as some motion capture work. Douglas covers a range of topics including how he feels about and relates to his fans, charities he likes to work with, what his life was like growing up, and more. Douglas also shares his advice for advice for aspiring actors, or people who are interested in voice acting:

If it’s your dream, and you want to do it, do it no matter what anybody else says. It’s, it’s-you don’t know how long you’re going to live. And so money is never a guarantee, you will figure all that stuff as you go...


The video is a little over an hour, so take a little time and give it a watch.

Jeff Kline Confirms New Transformers Series is in Production

We've known a new series for Transformers is in the works for a while now, and rumours keep coming our way about its intended younger audience. Now, in an interview with KeepMeCurrent.com, producer Jeff Kline has confirmed that the new show is indeed happening, and is, in fact, 'in full-blown production'! Read the whole interview here, or check out the relevant parts below.

Q: Of everything you’ve done, and everything you could do, why comic books?

A: Well, I’ve been almost five years going back and forth between the coasts. I’d like to live here more full-time. But it’s really hard to run a show from 3,000 miles away and, for the time being anyway, it seems like it’s going to be a hard time to get the networks to let me run an animated series out of Portland. I do still have a development deal with Hasbro. I have another “Transformers” series coming; that’s in full-blown production right now. I have a documentary I executive-produced that’s coming out this year, as well as other TV and movie projects, but I’ve been looking for something I can do from here. With comic books, you don’t have to be on a studio lot. It’s a lot of working with freelancers who can be anywhere in the country. It’s a business that’s very used to happening not in person. So, it’s a good business to start from my home in Cape Elizabeth.

The Official Transformers Facebook has posted another excerpt from the Transformers: Retribution novel by David J.Williams and Mark S. Williams. This one is scheduled to release tomorrow, but for now you can check out the brief excerpt mirrored below. The pre-order from Random House can be found by clicking the following link:

Transformers: Retribution - $7.99


“So what did the Quintessons promise you?” asked Optimus.

Megatro nshrugged. “The Decepticon Matrix of Leadership.”

“And you believed them?”

“Wha tdid they tell you?” snarled Megatron.

“That if I couldn’t convince you of peace, they could control your mind.”

“What? And you believed that?”

And suddenly Optimus realized that he really did. And that the Quintesson shad already been doing that. But not to Megatron.

To him.

A way to influence circuitry…. make the subject more malleable… Optimus knew in that instant what he had to do. Something that his whole being rebelled at. Something he never would have contemplated doing until now. He reached into his chest-cavity.

And switched off the Matrix of Leadership.

As the software went dark ,all of his doubts fell away. None of it was left—just him. He had no idea where the All-spark was. No clue as to what Prime really wanted. But he knew for certain that he faced a foe far worse than the Decepticons: an ancient enemy that had once enslaved his race and that had almost enslaved him—and somehow managed to corrupt the Matrix itself…
