Kevin Conroy

Batman animated

By 1992, Tim Burton had brought Batman back to life. His first two movies were effective, and Warner Bros. wanted, badly, to leverage demand with Batman: The Animated Series, which originally aired in primetime on Fox, paid for with twice the typical budget for an animated show of its kind. This was a darker and more grownup Batman. And the studio needed a voice for him.

A year earlier, Kevin Conroy, a Juilliard-trained Broadway actor, was about to audition — reluctantly — for the role. He was no comic geek, having been raised in a strict, traditional Irish-Catholic family outside New York City, where recreational activities were more likely to include baseball and jigging with his Gaelic-speaking Grandma. Producers gave him a crash-course in the Batman storyline before having him read the script. ``As soon as they described his schizophrenic lifestyle, it bugged me,`` Conroy says. ``I thought, Wait a minute, he is the Bill Gates of Gotham. He is the most eligible bachelor. Everyone knows who he is. And he puts on a cape, and no one recognizes him? Come on.`` In the five minutes he had to prepare, Conroy decided to give the superhero a new dual-voiced reading — the naïve scion's lilt and his alter-ego's deep growl — fundamentally altering the legacy of a comic book he had only passing knowledge of. Now imagine if Bruce Wayne and Batman had exactly the same speaking voice. It seems wrong. For that, the world has Kevin Conroy to thank.

It didn't really matter, in theory. The comics had dialogue bubbles. Live-action Batman pre-Conroy had one voice and a costume change. Conroy felt differently, and used his trick to shade in some psychological background: ``If he sounds that different, where does the voice come from? It has to come from the pain,`` Conroy says. ``I decided that the Bruce Wayne persona, the public persona, is the performance, and the Batman character is who he is when he is most natural. When he's putting on the cape, he is becoming himself.`` Everyone's got issues.

Conroy got the part, but he still had work to do. ``The Batman voice was the voice you've heard. But the Bruce Wayne voice was a high, light, playboy voice with a lot of irony and humor in it,`` he says. ``As the studio finished the animation, they realized the show was so dark that Bruce Wayne's light sound was jarring.`` Conroy was asked to re-record the first five or six episodes, cementing the more subtle voices heard in that series, its spin-offs, and video games ever since

As a member of Celebs4Vets Kevin participated in our Celebrity Build on March 10th, 2018.

Phillip P. Keene

Major Crimes

Acclaimed versatile actor and philanthropist, Phillip Keene is best known as 'Buzz Watson,' the tech savvy member of LAPD's exclusive squad on TNT's hit drama series ``Major Crimes``. In the long running series, with the finale having aired on Tuesday, January 9th, his elite team works on some of the highest priority cases in Los Angeles, including homicides and critical missing person cases and no case could be solved without the critical help of the unit's electronic surveillance provided by Buzz on the day-to-day. Off screen, while Phillip may not be so technically inclined, he has quite the extraordinary path leading him to his storied career as an actor franchise which includes TNT's ``The Closer`` that has spanned over 13 seasons combined.
Growing up between South America and Orange County, Phillip got his first taste of theatre while in middle school, performing in ``Annie Get Your Gun`` and continued his passion throughout high school. After graduation, like most struggling actors, Phillip worked a string of odd jobs until one day when he bought his very first newspaper, flipped through the personal ads and stumbled upon one to become a Pan American World Airways flight attendant. He packed up his things, went to Miami for a six-week training program and then on to London which he would call home for the next few years. When the company folded in 1991, Phillip decided his next move would be moving back to California. He worked another odd string of jobs at a modeling agency, at the local gym, as a travel agent and even as a makeup artist. At this time, he also attended UCLA and double majored in history and art history and taking acting classes on the side. It was only by chance that a friend of his, who worked in the entertainment industry, set him up with his role on ``The Closer,`` and the rest is history!
Phillip's love for his past career with Pan Am never faded, and he has amassed one the largest collectors of the airline's iconic memorabilia. Since he began collection in 1996, his collection has grown to over 3,500 pieces and includes matchboxes, posters, uniforms and tableware.
