LINEUP CHANGE: Paulsen Postponed, Matt Hill Announced

Rob Paulsen, who was originally set to appear at this weekend’s Forest City ComiCon, is disappointed to announce that, due to unforeseen professional commitments, he will be unable to attend the event.  The organizers of the Forest City ComiCon have moved quickly to fill the voice-over actor’s spot and are pleased to announce the appearance of Matt Hill, best known for his roles in the live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III, Ed, Edd n Eddie, Gundam Seed, Transformers, Dino Trux, Care Bears, My Little Pony, and more.

Hill boasts has an extensive resume that spans film, television and voice over work around the world.  Using his love of athletics, Matt jumped into the role (and suit) as everyone’s favorite Turtle in the half shell, “Raphael”, in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III.  His voice-over career started in 1989 when he won the title role to play the voice of “Kevin” in Captain N the Game Master for NBC. That first magic studio experience blew the doors wide open to the world of cartoons. For almost 30 years he’s made millions of kids laugh around the Planet, being the voice behind characters like: “Ed” on Ed, Edd n Eddy, reprising his role on another Turtles project – voicing “Raphael” on Fox Kids – “Turtles the Next Mutation.”

He’s been the voice of “Tender Heart” on the “Care Bears”, “Metal Head” on “GI-Joe Extreme”, “Finn” on “Storm Hawks”, and recently got to lend his voice to the classic children’s story of “Peter Pan” voicing “Peter”.  He’s just started season three playing “Ton Ton” on the new Dream Works – Netflix series “Dino Trux” and is a part time part of the cast on “My Little Pony”, playing the voice of “Soarin.” He just finished season one playing “Tyler” on Scott Fellows – “Super Noobs” – on Cartoon Network and just wrapped season two on Scott and Julie Stewart’s, “Kate & Mim Mim – playing “Tach”. Matt had a blast voicing school bully -”Skeebo” on “Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures” and landed the title role of “Kom” with English screen legends, Sir John Hurt and Michael York in the animated feature “A Monkey’s Tale”.

Matt has also lent his voice to some of the world’s most popular Anime characters such as: “Kira” on Gundam Seed, “Kero” on Cardcaptors, “Ironhide” and “Carlos” on Transformers, “Bankotsu” on Inuyasha, “Ryo” on Ronin Warriors, and “Kevin” on X-Men. He’s just completed recording a new 52 episode Anime series which will be announced in the near future.

Matt Hill will drop into the Forest City ComiCon’s schedule filling the originally announced and scheduled appearances for Rob Paulsen.
