Interview wtih Eamon Pirruccello

Eamon Pirruccello is going to be lending his voice to the 2011 reboot of “Thundercats”, which airs on Cartoon Network on July 29, 2011. Eamon is voicing the character of WilyKat in the new series. Movie Mikes had a chance to briefly ask Eamon about his experience working on the new “Thundercats” series in his very first interview.

Mike Gencarelli: Are you excited to be playing WilyKat in the reboot of “Thundercats”?
Eamon Pirruccello: Heck Yeah!  The shows have been really fun to record and the people I’ve met have been really fun!

MG: How did you prepare for the role? Did you watch any of the original “Thundercats” series to get inspiration?
EP: I prepared for it by getting focused before recording a line.  I actually haven’t seen the original show.  I probably will now that I have seen how awesome the new one is.

MG: How many episodes have you recorded so far?
EP: I don’t know actually, because I have not kept count.  I heard that the seasons are 26 episodes though.

MG: When you are recording the voice what visuals do you have? Storyboards? Full episodes?
EP: Normally none but sometimes we record ADR after the rest of the episode, at which point we are all recording to picture.

MG: How did you become involved with the short “Kung Fu Panda Secrets of the Furious Five”?
EP: It started like any other job: With an audition.  When I got the job, I was really excited that I would be a part of something like Kung-Fu Panda (Which now has two great movies and a short.)
