Dante Basco

With a career spanning over two and a half decades, Dante Basco is a Hollywood actor who has become a cult classic and pioneering figure in Asian American cinema. He was first introduced in Steven Spielberg’s fairytale movie Hook, as “Rufio”, the leader of the Lost Boys. He quickly jumped to leading roles like Newline’s Take the Lead, opposite Antonio Banderas, and The Debut, which became the voice of a Filipino American generation. 20th Century Fox executives were so mesmerized by the uniqueness of Dante’s look and ability that they gave him a development deal for his own series and he starred in a pilot for Touchstone/ABC, The Chang Family Saves the World, written and produced by John Ridley and directed by Paris Barclay. Ever versatile, he’s “Jake Long” in Disney’s animated series American Dragon: Jake Long as well as “Prince Zuko” in Nickelodeon’s phenomenal hit, Avatar: The Last Airbender and most recently as “General Iroh” in The Legend of Korra.

Rob Paulsen

Originally from Detroit, Michigan, Rob Paulsen “loved cartoons like most kids” and aspired to be a professional hockey player. “Fortunately, I learned pretty quickly that I had neither the talent, temperament nor dental insurance to pursue a career as a pro hockey player”. Ironically, acting was something to “fall back on” and Rob has voiced beloved characters in several iconic animated series: Yakko Warner in Animaniacs and Carl Wheezer in Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius, but may be best known to animation fans the world over as the voice of the boisterous and energetic laboratory mouse Pinky in two hit series Steven Spielberg Presents Pinky and The Brain and Pinky, Elmyra, and The Brain for Warner Brothers.

Maurice LaMarche

Maurice LaMarche has been doing character voices and impressions since his childhood, has played hundreds of roles. He is perhaps best known as ‘The Brain’ in ‘Pinky and The Brain‘, and most recently as Morbo/Kif/Calculon/The Donbot/Clamps in Futurama. You might have even heard him voicing Toucan Sam, and as the voice of Lexus automobiles.

Jordan Weisman

While you may not know Jordan by name, you will know his work. He has created the game franchises of MechWarrior,Shadowrun and Crimson Skies as well as the game format used in HeroClix. Along the way he has founded or co-founded over 5 game related companies, most of which he has sold. He oversaw the creation of several Alternate Reality Games such as “I Love Bees,” during the launch of Halo 2, “Why So Serious” forDark Knight, “Year Zero” for Nine Inch Nails, along with many other landmark ARGs. Most recently Jordan foundedHarebrained Schemes which made history when they released Shadowrun Returns, the first seven figure Kickstarter campaign to be successfully delivered to excited backers and positive reviews.
