(On the late Chris Latta)

"Chris is a strange, interesting, eclectic guy. We were friends. He was this terrific creative force, but like a lot of creative forces he a lot of energy pent up that came out in different ways. He was a powerhouse, on mic and off the mic, and I only have happy memories of working with him. I've seen him lose his temper in character and out of character, but that's where that energy springs from. He was a terrific guy."

(On acting)

"I like them all for different reasons... I think they all require translations, they're all different sizes. On camera, certainly in Hollywood, is the land of being told repeatedly to do less. Voice-over and Animation is the land of being told to do "Whatever you want". The more you give the animator, the more the animator says "Thank you". The technical aspect of on camera work, and even stage work, no matter where they want you, that's where you are supposed to be. Now the difference between stage and television or film, traditionally, is you actually have time to do it, run it, add tech elements... The joke in television is the day that a series is canceled and you go looking for your parking space the next day and it already has another name on it. Everything happens fast, production happens at breakneck speed. The assumption is that you will be there ready, with lines on marking. Everything happens so fast that if your mind is not on full alert the whole time, it will run over you. It's a very pressured situation. If you're recording something on tape, audio wise, if it goes wrong, or somebody laughs, or something falls and makes some noise... it's all retrievable, there is a safety about it. On a TV or film set, you've got 500 people all waiting for you to get it right so they can move to the next location. That's a very pressured situation... Not that it's not fulfilling, but I love voicing, I love it."

(On Voice Acting)

"I'm all about diving into the character and trying to see the world through the character's eyes, so I can't even answer the question. I think I share elements with every character I've ever done, but for me its all about putting on new clothes and see what those clothes feel like."

I know it's a day late, but Happy Belated Birthday Gregg Berger!!

I do hope he continues to gain more voice over work in the future, since he does a good job voicing characters like Grimlock, Odie, Orson the Pig, among many others.

Happy Birthday Gregg Berger!

Another great VA's who ruled most 80's kids childhood and still continues to voice act to this day.

Obviously Grimlock is my favourite role of his, his work in the Sunbow cartoon is classic and hilarious and his work in the more recent games has been phenomenal. Personally I prefer the more Hulk-like Grimlock voice he did in Fall of Cybertron and Rise of the Dark Spark, but both performances and takes are awesome in my books.

I also loved his performances as Long Haul, Skyfire, Outback, Lockdown, Odie, Orson, Herman Post, Spirit, The Thing, Mysterio, Mole Man, Beast, Blob, Kingpin, Kraven the Hunter, Hunter the Cheetah, Ripto, Leo and he does make a good Eeyore all things considered.
