HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
Jason Douglas started acting at the age of eight with a Radio Shack tape recorder, a wild imagination, and too much unsupervised playtime. 'My friends and I used to improvise action and sci-fi adventures on tape with KISS records playing in the background as our soundtrack,' he admits.
Originally from rural Arkansas, Jason eventually settled in Houston, Texas, and attended the University of Houston School of Theatre, where he studied with distinguished faculty members Jose Quintero and Edward Albee. Throughout the 1990s, Jason was actively involved in the vibrant Houston theatre scene, and in 1997, attracted the attention of what would become the largest distributor of Japanese Anime in North America, ADV Films.
Jason's now prolific career (100+ titles) as an anime voice-actor became the springboard for work in the commercial, industrial, and video game fields. Clients have included Subway, Shell, Continental Airlines, K&G Men's Stores, BMC Software, Houston Chronicle, ESPN, Halliburton, RUUD, Funimation, Ion Storm, Landry's Restaurants, Time-Warner Cable, and more.
In addition to his work as a Voice Actor, Jason is also a working professional actor on-screen, from industrial spokesperson to supporting and guest roles in major television and feature films. Some highlights:
*No Country for Old Men
*A Scanner Darkly
*Prison Break (FOX)
*Friday Bight Lights (NBC)
*The Lost Room (SCI-FI)
*Into The West (TNT)
In December of 2008, Jason will guest-star in the third installment of the popular TNT film series "The Librarian," starring Noah Wyle.
Confident and articulate natural baritone, with strong character and comedic variations; goofy nerd, fishing buddy, loveable-but-clueless husband, tragically hipster, dynamic "movie trailer guy."
Especially at ease with complex technical jargon, particularly in the medical, petrochemical, and financial industries. (Clients have remarked that I make their tough-to-read spec-heavy copy "easy to understand"). Also well-suited for educational projects, presentations for children, animation, and English dubbing (ADR) of previously recorded foreign titles (live action or "Anime").

I know you’ve been a member of Voiceover Universe for some time, but I wanted to introduce one of our groups to you.
I hope you'll check out and join a group called MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT. It's a group dedicated to discussing ways we can market ourselves - what works; what doesn't. You’ll find some very interesting ideas and concepts there! And we would appreciate your input. Click here for the link: MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT!
Thanks for your time! I trust our paths will cross soon!
Thanks for the reply and for the comment. Yeah, no worries on the delay of the response. Its good to take a break away from things from time to time.
My daughter and I were in Houston recently to attend Oni-Con. It was surprising how big the con was. Houston was cool though. Not much different than Sacramento, outside of the humidity. My daughter is a big fan of yours and we'll have to look you up next time. I'll keep and eye out for an Cali appearances you may have.
Jason, Its great to see you here. You have a great voice.
I've caught your parts in Sin City and Second Hand Lions and although they were a bit short, you still did a great job. Why is it that Voice Actors are either drivers or getting beat-up in movies? Such a shame.
Since Anime has been mentioned, I love your work in Saiyuki and Papuwa. Liquid was just real funny.
Hey Jason! Thanks for the compliment! I'm a little late commenting back, but thanks for the add too! Hope you're enjoying your summer......and if you're coming to Voice 2008 I'll see you there! --Trish
Awesome! If you're ever in SoCal, drop me a line and I'll meet you for lunch! I can probably pass you BangZoom's number so you can call them when you're in town if you're ever interested in getting back into anime.
Actually, I've always lived in California! I'm friends with Mike Mc and was visiting friends in Dallas when he was recording for the movie, so he called me in while I was there. :) It was just little one-liners and walla.
