Have you ever sat down to watch an episode of Wheel of Fortune? Probably yes. In fact, most definitely yes. Then, you’ll recognize the voice of Jim Thornton. He’s the man behind many voices, including the announcer in Monster’s Inc. Jim was so kind by sitting with me for an hour and discussing his life, his career and other topics. I loved listening to his insight on current radio, as well. But one thing I made sure to ask him was, ‘How does somebody “make it” in voice acting?’.
Jim discusses how he moved out to LA at the age of 19 to pursue his career in voice work. It is such a great story, because it makes you realize that it takes ambition, dedication and sacrifice to make it in the world of entertainment. I hope you enjoy the episode and if you’re pursuing a career in voice acting, or just want to line up a gig to see what its like, then this is the episode for you.
Thanks for letting me interview you, Jim!!! I really enjoyed it!!!
Anyways, I hope you enjoy the episode.
