Watch Detroit’s Own Rob Paulsen Hilariously Improvise Cartoon Characters
His name is Robert Paulsen. Actually he goes by Rob, but I wanted to get any references to Fight Club out of the way. Remember the first rule?
Vanity Fair recently sat down with Detroit, Michigan native Rob Paulsen and in addition to having him give a sample of his most famous character voices, they also placed pictures of new cartoons in front him. Paulsen then brilliantly not only comes up with a couple different versions of the character, but explains the creative process behind it.
If you've never seen a voice over artist work, you'll enjoy this video. Pay attention to the way his posture, gestures, and facial expressions morph as he takes on the persona of these new avatars.
