It must be a disheatening feeling being a male voice actor, sitting at a audition...and see Troy Baker sitting there. That man is literally in every game released now. Dont get me wrong, Troy is a bad Mofo, but they need some new blood in the game. What I'm saying is...Nipsy Russell's great grandson needs a job.

btw, I'm NOT Nipsy Russell's great grandson, I'm his drinking buddy "Ray-Ray's cousin.
