    Wonder if he feels the same way about “The Pagemaster” and “Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius.”

    That’s great! I’m surprised he didn’t mention his involvement with The Prince of Egypt, actually. That movie was quite moving as well.

      I was glad they got him to play Yuppa for Disney’s dub of “Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind” myself.

    Oh, that’s so wonderful to hear animation being appreciated by such a wonderful and respected actor! I’m getting curious about the film that he’s going to be providing a voice for; I hope that it’s a good one.

    HOWEVER, someone needs to call Brad Bird – whoever was in charge of coming up with the headline/subheadline for that CNN video called animation a GENRE. They’re due for a punch in the face. :D

    Hey now he knows several bad films won’t stop his career. He’s been appearing in more and more animated projects every year, and I’m so glad a Shakespearian-trained actor is showing praise for it.

    Let’s not forget he voices a recurring character on “American Dad.”

      That has to be one of his greatest roles IMO.

    Way to go, Cool Old Guy!

    Now if only Hollwood would realize they could bring ALL the surviving TV Star Trek cast back for a CGI animated anthology series set in Roddenbery’s universe, the franchise could recover some of it’s dignity and intelligence.

    Oh, and funny how the opening ad featured the Shat.

    Thanks, Patrick. Live long and Prosper.
