  • These movies were the first to offer a greater variety of story and character, and, together with films which had a psychological or social theme, became known as "adult Westerns." Red River (1948) dealt with postwar disillusionment, High Noon (1952) was a reaction to the McCarthy era, and Broken Arrow (1950) treated the subject of racial tolerance."

    Celebrity Voice Actors: The New Sound of Animation
    Joe Bevilacqua investigates viewpoints on celebrities as voice actors. [Animation
    World Magazine]

  • Robin William's sheer exuberance as the Genie in Aladdin created a memorable and entertaining character.

  • One of the current trends in the American animation industry is to cast major movie stars to voice animated characters.

  • They properly recognized that you couldn't send an animated character out there to Entertainment Tonight to promote your movie." But voice actor Bob Bergen counters, "If you look at Disney's history, they've always used the celebrities of the day for their cartoons.

  • No [other] time in film has there been so much animation being produced." While in the past Disney used an occasional celebrity (Phil Harris in The Jungle Book , Bob Newhart in The Rescuers ), today all their major characters are portrayed by celebrities, leaving those who make a living at voice acting to fight over a handful of supporting roles and crowd scenes.

  • "[Studio execs] gravitate towards celebrities, " says voice actor Corey Burton, "so that they have actors who have already developed a persona they can draw from to fill out the character, whereas a multi-voiced person is waiting for their idea to produce the particular voice.

  • In fact, the reason, the whole reason that they're celebrities is because they're such wonderful thespians, and, of course, any director, animation or live-action, just wants the best available." The implication, Seibert suggests, is that "voice actors are not really actors, they're merely voices who can't hold onto a character." "I don't think anyone in this business seriously, deep down, believes that you necessarily get better performances from celebrities than from professional voice actors...but it may give the show a special status as something above an ordinary cartoon.

  • He prepared himself physically for the role by spending months and rigorously in order to achieve Bateman’s physique, even going so far as to distance himself from the cast and crew in order to preserve the darker side of Bateman’s character.

  • Famed American critic Roger Ebert seemed to condemn the film at first, calling it “film ” and “the most loathed film at Sundance, ” but gave it a favorable review, writing that Harron “transformed a novel about blood lust into a movie about men’s vanity.” Of Bale’s performance, he wrote, “Christian Bale is heroic in the way he allows the character to leap joyfully into despicability; there is no instinct for self-preservation here, and that is one mark of a good actor.” On, , finally released American Psycho in theatres.
