Another Anime Convention announces final round of guests
AnimeCons has received the following press release from Another Anime Convention:
It's that time again, the time when we announce our final (most likely final, at least) round of guests.
This time, we are very excited to be the first New England convention to welcome Quinton Flynn as a guest.
While many of you may know Quinton as the voices of Axel and Reno, Quinton has been a cornerstone of voice talent for nearly two decades. Quinton's voice has been burning up film and television since he first arrived in Los Angeles from his native Cleveland. He is an A-list voice actor, having played such famous animated characters as Jonny Quest, Spiderman, Speed Racer, The Human Torch, Timon, Snowbell in Stuart Little, just to name a few. His television and film appearances include Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, King of Queens, Animaniacs, Woody Woodpecker, Robot Chicken, and many more.
His best known roles in video game franchises have been his work providing the english voices of Raiden in the Metal Gear Solid series, Axel in Kingdom Hearts II, and Reno in Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children the motion picture. If you're hip to the anime scene you'll know him as Iruka-sensei and Deidara in Naruto and Naruto Shippuden, Marcus Damon in Digimon Data Squad, and Carl in Blood+. He is well known in the industry for his skills as an impressionist and improvisationalist, having played the role of Paul McCartney and tested for NBC's Saturday Night Live and Comedy Network's The Daily Show.
In addition to Quinton, we also welcome back AAC veterens Matt Myers and The Wandering Legion of the Thomas Tew.
