A hero’s journey is rife with many perils and obstacles, as actor/singer/superhero Josh Keaton knows all too well.
Josh was blessed by the gods (well, except Hades) not too long after he won the role of Young Hercules in Disney’s Hercules animated film. But that wasn’t enough to satiate his thirst for being awesome, and thus Josh proceeded to work his way up the ladder of being as many superhero voices as he could. He ended up lending his vocal performances to such iconic heroes as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in The Spectacular Spider-Man, and Hal Jordan in Green Lantern: The Animated Series. He sped his way into things such as Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths and DC Superhero Girls as The Flash, and voiced human Jack Darby, in Transformers: Prime.
Recently, Josh decided all that still wasn’t enough for him, he had to have his own giant robot to bring justice to the entire galaxy! And so he stepped into the role of Shiro in the hit Dreamworks series Voltron Legendary Defender, out now on Netflix. He has also started taking on smaller roles, such as Ant-Man in Avengers: Secret Wars.
Yet, despite all of these previous voice over accomplishments and more (Like Revolver Ocelot in Metal Gear Solid 3, King Graham in the King’s Quest revival, Spyro in Skylanders, Valerian Mengsk in Starcraft II, King Anduin Wrynn in World of Warcraft, and Lann in World of Final Fantasy), he just had to give it all up and be the bad guy; namely Norman Osborn in the new animated series Marvel’s Spider-Man.
And throughout his heroic journey across the voice acting realms of animated movies, video games and television shows, Josh has learned one very important and powerful lesson… you either die a hero, or live long enough to see your show get cancelled.
