If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Hello Spill members,
I have always wanted to post something on here but really didn't know what to. I just had an idea and an oppertunity, so I took it. I am going to start a regular segment called Talented People You Have No Idea Exist. In this I will talk about an Actor,director,writer,etc. I feel is/are extremely underrated. I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I do writing it.
#1 Gideon Emery:
The other day a friend showed me a Tv show called "Moonlight". The show was about vampires and was actually pretty entertaining and had pretty cool takes on the Vampire mythos. There was one character on the show,in the episode 12:04 am, that when I saw the actor's performance as a bloodthirsty cult leader,who was turned over to the police by a girl who witnessed him murder her parents, and became a vampire in order to skip over his death(caused by lethal injection) and come after her for revenge. This man (unlike the girl) blew my mind in his performance. His movements, what he did with his voice, everything. I loved it. After it was done I felt obliged to look him up and see what else he has done. I found out his name was Gideon Emery. Even though the story was kind of lackluster, and some of the lines were awful, I kept watching to see what else Emery would do. There are other lines I should have cringed at but didn't because of how he delivered them. When I looked him up on IMDB there were many things I found out. First of all you probably have seen him before, if not at least heard him. Most of his credits on IMDb are voice credits. beneath are a list of examples.
He played Poseidon in the God of War videogame series.
He played multiple voices in the Halo Wars and Assassins creed II videogames. Not in any big roles but still.
He played the voice of Lott Dodd in an episode of Star Wars: The clone wars. (I never watch that show so I can't say I know how he did but I know there are people on the sight who watch it so they might be familiar with it.) and many more.
Anyone who doesn't pay any attention to voices might also know him in such roles as...
Sean Glenane(Fiona's brother) in the tv show Burn Notice. He does a brilliant Irish accent even though I have heard him in multiple interviews and other shows and he is not Irish.
Although he has not had a lot of big acting roles, he is going to have a small role in the movie "Takers" starring Hayden Christiansan, Zoe Seldana and T.I. I hope to see him in bigger roles. If that article was terrible I am sorry. This is my first time doing this sort of thing. Please tell me what I can fix for future posts.
