We know it’s the day before Christmas, but we just couldn’t wait to unwrap our present to you…a present that’s going to try to take over the world! Apparently, it’s the same thing he does every night when he’s not being a meanie and trying to throw the book at Twilight’s school for the Equestria Education Association.
He’s the legendary Maurice LaMarche, and he’s several of the voices you’ve grown up with. In addition to playing Chancellor Neighsay on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, just a few of his notable roles include The Brain on Pinky and the Brain and Animaniacs; Kif Kroker, Calculon, Morbo, and many more on Futurama; Abradolf Lincler, Morty Jr., and more on Rick and Morty; Egon Spengler on The Real Ghostbusters, and way too many to tell you about here. Additionally, any time you hear Orson Welles animated, it’s almost certainly Maurice: The Critic, Futurama, The Simpsons, and even dubbed over the on-screen body of Vincent D’Onofrio in the live-action film, Ed Wood. (True story!)
In short, we couldn’t be happier to give you the pony con debut of voice acting royalty.
Maurice joins Tabitha St. Germain and Rebecca Shoichet among our guests of honor, and you can expect many more announcements over the next couple of months, so watch this space.
