NeilKaplanNews

Kaplan grew up in San Jose, California. He got his start as a comedian doing impressions of presidents such as Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon. He also impersonated a little known journalist at the time, Dan Rather. He then started work on video games, including many Star Wars titles. From there he went on to do such shows as Power Rangers, Digimon: Digital Monsters, and most recently, Transformers: Robots in Disguise.
One of his most famous voices is Hawkmon from Digimon. His favorite role was the “utility guy” on a show called The Mouse and the Monster, which aired on UPN in 1996–1997. He played stomachs, ghosts, and Sappy the Clown, among dozens of other characters on that show. Kaplan was also once a contestant on the popular comedy game show, Street Smarts. On that appearance he showed off some of his other impressions, including one of Gilbert Gottfried.

JasonMarsdenNews

With a career spanning more than 25 years, Jason Marsden has been affectionately referred to as… “that guy from that show.” The seasoned actor has worked in film and television with the best and the brightest, including Ridley Scott (White Squall), Robert Downey Jr. (Ally McBeal), James Woods (Shark), Billy Crystal (Mr. Saturday Night), Jim Carrey (Fun with Dick and Jane), and countless others. With more than 150 credits to his name, Jason Marsden has defintely made a dent in the entertainment industry.

Originally from Warwick, Rhode Island, Jason and his parents relocated to California when he was 11 years old. For the next few years, Jason co-starred in numerous television shows. His “teen-hearthrob” status earned him another recurring gig for two years on the popular TGIF series Boy Meets World. Shortly after, he joined the cast of Step by Step (starring Suzanne Somers and Patrick Duffy) for their final two seasons. The silver screen soon called to Jason and, at age twenty, he was offered a role appearing opposite Jeff Bridges in White Squall. This snowballed and led to many other film and TV credits.

Somehow, amongst all of his on-camera work, Jason has also managed to amass over 100 credits behind the mic. He has lent his voice to some of animation’s most beloved characters in cartoon series, feature films, radio programs, and more. Jason has played a wide range of roles—from the main character in the Academy Award-winning Spirited Away to the son of one of Disney’s favorite dogs in A Goofy Movie. He voice the role of Haku from one of Miyazaki’s hit movies Spirited Away. At present, he is wrapping the first season of Hasbro’s GI Joe: Renegades for the HUB network, Fairly Odd Parents for Nickelodeon, and The Garfield Show on Cartoon Network. If you’re a video game fan, you’ve probably heard Jason in such epic games as Fallout New Vegas, Knights of the Old Republic, and the title role in Tak and the Power of Juju.

While working on his current projects, Jason is studying the Charles Conrad Method at the Steve Eastin Studio and enjoying the role he was born to play…loving husband to his wife, Christy and awesome dad to his son, Clark Otis.
