“If I’m paid to voice a job and it’s never used, does it make a sound?”
Well I’m here to answer “YES!”, and show you some Voice Mime gigs from my own personal forest.
The following are all jobs that I auditioned for, got cast, recorded, and got paid for – that have never been heard until now!
These projects involve celebrity voice matching. Sometimes it is to replace a celebrity voice in a movie or trailer, other times they’re used as scratch tracks until the celebrity has time to record the final version.
- Harrison Ford as Colonel Hyrum Graff in Ender’s Game
- William Fichtner as Shredder in TMNT 2014
- Steve Martin as Captain Smek in Home
Pilot projects are ambitious undertakings. Often funded by the creators, or backed for a limited number of episodes, these are projects that may yet see the light of day…

Each of these projects were underway when for various reasons they were placed on hold or canceled. The future for these may be uncertain, but I’m hoping some come back to life for a full run 😉
