John Largent

Gruff, southern gentleman, wacky, character specia

Voice Description

My natural voice has a definite southern twang, however through several years of dialect training, I am able to create a non-dialect voice (for industrial and corporate video VO) as well as many other styles from a small child to a brooding evil, over the top villain.

I have hosted a political talk show as well as extensive work of several documentaries, including a couple of recent Civil War project in which I was used for 5 different roles.

I have also been featured in a couple of animated shorts as a large, dopey cat and an evil ferret.

I also perform as a ring announcer for several large boxing, mixed martial arts and wrestling events, so I have developed a style for that as well.

Overall, I consider myself a character voiceover talent and am able to produce a wide rage and variety of vocal stylings.
