We are thrilled to announce Henry Rollins as the voice of the Book 3 main villain, Zaheer. Henry did a brilliant turn in this role, taking it very seriously from the get-go, going so far as to conduct an in-depth interview about the character, his background, and his motivations with Mike and me on the phone while he was on a spoken word tour––all before he even recorded his audition. If you aren’t familiar with Henry (likely because you were born in the ’90s or ’00s), he is a legendary punk singer, actor, speaker, activist, and radio DJ. He had a hilarious role in our buddy Kurt Mattila’s co-directorial debut, Lies & Alibis. We heard from Kurt back then how incredibly friendly Henry is and what a pleasure he is to work with, and he exceeded even that glowing report. Hearing Henry’s tales of his fearless travels around the world is a real treat. As Mike says, “He actually is The Most Interesting Man In The World.”
Hanging out with PJ Byrne, the fantastic voice of Bolin, backstage at New York Comic Con. The Korra panel was awesome. The fans were great! We had such a good time. Thanks for a great convention already. Heading to the signing momentarily.
#korra behind the scenes!! #comicon @davidfaustino @janetvarney
P.J. Byrne (voice of Bolin) kept directing these Instagram video clips throughout the day. Mike and I, Luddites that we are, were mostly baffled by the process.
This is P.J.’s official Tumblr, by the way! Get the word out: pjbyrne.tumblr.com
David Faustino, voice of Mako, also in for a Book 4 recording session the other day, and also joining us for the Comic-Con panel, signing, and interviews tomorrow (along with Janet Varney, voice of Korra, though I don’t have a picture of her in a yellow submarine, in a yellow submarine, they all live in a yellow submarine).

Mike and I had lunch with Dante Basco (voice of Zuko & General Iroh the Younger) yesterday. It nice to take a break from the storm and reminisce on the Avatar days and craze, and catch up on the million-and-one things Dante is up to. The guy keeps himself busy. He is on Tumblr too, in case you didn’t know. But if you are into Homestuck, then you already knew that.
