Haha, I didn't know he did voice acting till now.

It's weird how many characters one person can play.

I loved the Hong Kong Phooey joke.
also I can relate to his remark about missing transformer.
As I was interested in transformers for most of my life,
but only got really into it last year.

I liked his performance on Mad TV and Metal Gear Solid 2, he's a great choice for Jazz, "The King Of Cool!"

The thing about LaMarr as Jazz.....I could see him doing a Scatman Cruthers riff...but I could also see Jazz sounding like John Stewart/Black Vulcan....I'm cool either way...Phil LaMarr is one of the greatest voice actors of this generation IMO and it's cool to have him involved with TFs......

I'm really pleased to hear he's gained such a respect for the original source material, and for Scatmna Crothers as well. I'm so psyched about seeing Jazz back on the tube, and I can tell already, this was a great casting choice.

It's kidna funny, I said ages ago when Jazz was announced for the movie that Phil LaMarr would be the perfect choice. I've kinda gotten my wish here.

Who knew Kiwi's held such sway? :P

After reading his bio, I'm waiting with some anticipation to see what he brings to Jazz. I am expecting good things.
