Media contact: Holly Carinci, HollyWords Publicity Inc


TV series, DVDs, and a Feature Film all on the slate
VANCOUVER August 30, 2004 One of the busiest actors in North America, David Kaye has recently added a Feature Film, two new anime series, three new award-winning games, a Guest Starring role on a television show, and another reprisal of his famous "Megatron" character to his daily schedule that includes voice imaging radio stations and television networks in over 120 markets around the world. One of the busiest, most sought-after voice-over artists in North America, Kaye is represented by some of the best agents talent can get Kaye"s reps at William Morris out of both New York and Los Angeles keep him plane-hopping weekly, but the Canadian-born actor still does most of his work from the studio he had built into his home by industry specialists.

Kaye became well-known for his animated character "Megatron" in the last three Transformer series, Transformers-Beastwars, Transformers: Beast Machines and Transformers Armada. His character has been reprised for the newest installment, Transformers Energon. A great line that Megs has in this newest Transformer series is "Join me and I will send you to battle. Defy me and I will send you to oblivion",laughs Kaye. That's my Megs! Kaye is also the voice behind Megatron in the Atari game Transformers for PlayStation 2 that went gold earlier this year and was released worldwide on May 11th. Reviewers of the game wrote: Graphically, Transformers is one of the most impressive PS2 games I have seen to date." - PSE2; "Transformers is a damn fine videogame." - Official PlayStation Magazine; "Transformers is looking like one of the PS2"s most exciting new action titles. Plus it has freakin" Transformers in it! - Game Informer.

David Kaye"s character "Clank" in Ratchet & Clank, is the popular, diminutive robot that can interface with any computer or droid. Insomniac Games developed both Ratchet & Clank (2002) and Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando (2003) for PlayStation 2, and both have garnered seven PlayStation 2 "Game of the Year" awards and 12 "Best in Genre" awards from media. These accolades do not include the "Readers"/Editors" Choice" awards, recognition from leading industry organizations and additional media accolades for outstanding technical achievements. Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal, the third installment to the Ratchet & Clank series, will launch in November 2004.

And then there"s the sequel to Splinter Cell titled Pandora Tomorrow which went gold for XBox and PC earlier this year. In the game David Kaye plays the main bad-guy, "Suhadi Sadono", the leader of Anti-US guerrilla militia acting with the unofficial support of major corrupt factions of the Indonesian government.

Kaye"s first feature film work in his career has arrived in the form of a Universal Studio production, Ant Bully in which he plays the entertaining character "Fugax". So far I"ve just laid what"s called the scratch track, says Kaye. I can only pray they don"t cast Brad Pitt or someone in the role before they release it! Ant Bully is currently in production with no set release date as-of-yet.

Kaye was also just cast in two new anime television series, Human Crossing and Tokyo Underground. In the latter of his newest series, Kaye plays the main bad guy (I"m getting type-cast, he jokes) "Pairon". Throughout the series, his character pursues the three protagonists, "Rumina Asagi", "Chelsea Rorec" and "Ruri Sarasa" in-and-around a forgotten, sealed world where they have escaped to, deep under the ground in Tokyo.

With all of this voice work, Kaye was surprised when he recently landed an on-camera Guest Starring role on the popular USA Cable Entertainment/SCI-FI Channel Battlestar Galactica. Playing the character "James McManus" in the episode Colonial Day, he is still a voice to be reckoned with, however. A blowhard host of a broadcast news show, Kaye"s character is adrenaline-charged and speaks his mind with machine-gun rapidity. He"s all fired up and makes it clear about who his alliances lie with, until a guest appears and takes the wind out of his sails. Says Kaye about the on-camera role: Well, I"m kinda tired at the moment.but it"s a fun tired. It"s nice to be back on set and be involved in something I grew up with. Now if you"ll excuse me, I"ve got to get back to outer space.
