Voice Actor D.C. Douglas recently posted a blog about how Leonard Nimoy's Spock character influenced his role as Chase on Transformers Rescue Bots and Mass Effect's Legion. He posts his audition for Chase and call back audition for Legion.

D.C. Douglas wrote:And then there’s Chase! He was a challenge once we started recording the first episode. The breakdown (description of the voice the producers wanted) was that of Friday from “Dragnet.”




D.C. Douglas wrote:Here is my audition for Legion. It’s actually my call back. The first one was a monologue a la “friends, Romans, countrymen!” You’ll notice in this call back recording that I’m leaning heavier on the facts and less on the thoughtfulness. It’s subtle, but anyone who knows these games will hear it:




D.C. Douglas wrote:But once in the recording session, the creators realized it was just a bit too limiting and began shaping Chase with more of Spock’s Mother’s tendencies. Over the course of 3 seasons Chase has evolved into quite a lovable character.

And now the post “Spock Archetype” performances:

Chase has been my favorite Rescue Bot from the start.
Love the laugh at the end.
