Edward DeRuiter

Guy next door, romantic comedy lead, anime hero

Voice Description

Animation voices vary with project, but am most often employed for heroic lead roles or Han Solo type anti-heroes.

While I can do multiple voices and accents, my every day speaking voice is typical guy next door American, very similar to those found in romantic comedy movies or TV sitcom leads.

For fast food or beer commercial, I add a slightly gravelled "a guy's guy" quality to my natural speaking voice.

Luxury commercials are done with a Mid-Atlantic, Fraiser Crane-esque intellectualism.

Professional presentations are typically played serious and sharp, the character that got the executive job many years before his peers by being the best.
