After reading the first five or so, I pretty much scrolled to the bottom of the page; the only name I really saw when I did that was Whoopi Goldberg. Not sure if that would work.
Actually, on a semi-related note, there was supposed to be a joke regarding Whoopi and The View in the previous episode, but it didn't make it in.

<Look again, I just put some names in bold. I did think that a woman's voice would be an odd and some what funny choice.>

Hm, some of them could have some pretty funny results, notably Christopher Walken.
Only thing is, I'm not sure if we're going to play the character straight or not. If not, I'll definitely try to find a celebrity impression that fits.

<Of course you have to figure out if your playing him straight or not! After all, your already playing Visser 3 as gay!>
<Really you do need to know how you want them before you match a voice to them.>
<You wouldn't have Whoopi Goldberg doing the voice of a lesbian Rachel, or Robin Williams as super serious Jake.>

That's one of the things that we really go for in the series - voices that match the characters. The only real exception was Tobias, who we pretty much wrote for an excuse to do the voice.

<Yeah, that is important.>

Recently, I've taken to watching animated movies more or less just for the voice acting. A lot of the time, you can tell when an actor isn't comfortable in a role and when one is. That's what really separates some VAs from the rest of the pack.

We should finally write the next episode tomorrow. Hopefully, we can come up with a voice for Ellimist then.

Well, we didn't finish writing the next episode yet, but we do have an idea for how we want to do good ol' Elmie. Sadly, I don't think we're doing any of the celebrity impressions.
