Default Looking for the right Destro voice!

Hello there fellow aspiring voice actors! The name is Derek "Hendercrazy" Henderson and I'm looking for the right Destro voice!



HERE'S WHAT I'M DOING:
I'm putting together a fun little satirical video short that will be posted on YouTube once it's completed. This project involves a short interaction between Cobra Commander (voiced by me) and Destro (perhaps voiced by you if you have what it takes). If you're not familiar with the characters at all... Cobra Commander and Destro are both main villains from the original 1980's G.I. Joe cartoon series. Google them if need be and listen to them on YouTube as well to get an idea of how they interact.

HOW IT WILL BE DONE:
All vocals for this project will be FREELY RECORDED and added later to existing still frame pictures... but ran in a special order in a video format. So... no vocal matching/dubbing required! Make's it easy, right?

WHAT YOU GET OUT OF IT:
This project is non-paying but should be a fun experience and entertaining to do. You'll also be given credit at the end of the short (including your name [and/or internet handle] and your voice website/host [if you have one]). Again, this is just for fun and who knows... IF the video catches on (notice the big "if")... perhaps it could bring you a little bit of exposure too.

THE DESTRO VOICE:
Now, what I'm looking for is your best rendition of Arthur Burghardt's original Destro voice. The more accurate the voice and good acting skills that you can bring to it... the better!!!

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO AUDITION:
Record the following Destro line for me in your best Destro voice and apply the emotions associated with that line.

Line 1
[Emotion:Very Angry/Mad]
"You've got to be kidding Cobra Commander! You're waaaaay out of your league here."

Line 2
[Emotion: Jokingly/Light Hearted]
"You've got to be kidding Cobra Commander! You're waaaaay out of your league here."

Line 3
[Emotion: Very Serious/Composed]
"You've got to be kidding Cobra Commander! You're waaaaay out of your league here."

Also, feel free to record some of your own Destro lines displaying your best Destro voice and use various emotions!

Record them in a WAV or MP3 format and you may either post them up here in this thread or e-mail them: directly to me and make the subject line "Destro's Audition Lines".

AUDITION DEADLINE:
All audition entries must be in no later than June 22nd, 2012. That's a little over a month from today's posting.

FINAL OUTCOME:
I'll announce this thread closed when this deadline hits. I'll also announce if I've selected anyone for this project or not. If I haven't found the Destro voice after this time... there are some other options I might pursue.

Thanks for your time and interest!

May the best Destro voice step forward!!!

- Derek "Hendercrazy" Henderson
