This was another interesting thread over at ComicFury, so I thought it could be something we could discuss here as well.

Now granted, I myself have never been particularly interested in seeing VAMPIRE GIRL animated (I have played with the idea of adapting it into a live-action short though), however I have been asked occasionally over the years what sort of voice actors have I ever had in mind for the characters, and admittedly, it is something that I've thought about from time to time, and I do believe I have an ideal voice cast in my mind. . . .

  • Levana: Nika Futterman; I definitely hear her Mike (from MIKE, LU & OG) voice in my mind whenever I read Levana's dialogue - it's not exactly one of her more feminine voices, but it's also not one of her more husky voices either.
  • Laura: Kat Cressida; honestly, just her natural voice would suffice for me (on an unrelated note, she was supposed to appear out our local con this year, but she canceled for unknown reasons).
  • Dr. Charmin: Tom Kane; like Professor Utonium, but just a little higher, but sometimes Professor could have that smooth sort of a voice, which would definitely match Dr. Charmin's charming demeanor . . . unfortunately, since Tom had a stroke a few years ago and can no longer do voices, I can't really think of any other voice actor whose range is similar enough to sound like him. Maybe Jeff Bennett? Not sure.
  • Vampire Hunter: Michael Dorn; just Michael Dorn, nuff said.
  • Goofy Idiot Sidekick: Rob Paulsen; likewise, just seems to be a natural fit, since he's great at those kind of nerdy/neurotic sort of voices.
  • Sigfred N. LeRoy: John Byner; specifically his Jackie Mason impersonation that he used to voice Blue Aardvark in those old THE ANT AND THE AARDVARK cartoons.

If one of my comics was animated I'd do all the male voices myself. Those guys on South Park and Family Guy can do it so can I.

Live action I'd be one of the Grey Guys. I'd have it written into the contract. I actually read a lot of the dialogue out loud to tweak flow and cadence.

((thinking, lightbulb))

This is for some of the characters I have in mind.

Karumtoo - This robot sheriff has his own gruff voice with either a southern accent (like Warden Chalmers from WordGirl voiced by Tom Kenny) or just a flamboyant American accent of any kind. I could do this voice myself or get an actor to do this.

Rexo - Basically Stan Smith from American Dad! (voiced by Seth MacFarlane), albeit slightly higher due to his superhero-like voice. Another voice actor or I could do this sort of voice because I don't want to afford MacFarlane anyways. I'm gonna slap a Not Safe for Work warning due to thematic material that is in the video I posted.

Tank and Ms. Dorothy - I can't find the right voices for these two at the moment, so I can voice Tank (the bull) and Wanda Sykes can voice Ms. Dorothy (the cow).

Perry Dermis - A Tom Cruise voice impression. This daredevil/stuntman matches a voice impression close to his seriousness or goofiness.

Martha McCoy - I'm picking a random actress for this one. Let's say Sally Carrera from the Cars movies, shorts, and TV series (Bonnie Hunt).

Kerra {Tina} Cytes - Debi Derryberry for now. Not a Jimmy Neutron-like voice. Let's just say a serious teenage girl voice.
A.K.A Karumtoo-Rexo.

Considering I'm from Tennessee, and many of my non-southern friends are quick to point out I have an accent (albeit apparently an inconsistent one that seems to come and go), I could probably do such a voice, lol. But otherwise, a robot with a flamboyant American accent sounds like such an amusing concept.
