You Don't know Jack! or do you..

May 19, 2017

 

Ah impersonations,  mimicking famous voices from Hollywood movies. I've done my fair share and have been hired on occasion but never really took it too seriously, (focusing more on creating my own characters). But I couldn't resist when I got an audition asking for a 'Jack Nicholson' voice. It was not a direction suggestion (of merely his style), they wanted a soundalike. I've never really done a Jack Nicholson voice before, but I figured my voice is in the same range and he's all about attitude so why not? First off I went to You Tube and did a search on Jack and saw other celebrities impersonating him! Funny stuff and I did get a few tips but I needed to dig deeper. I watched a few clips, but 'Five Easy Pieces' was the clip that stood out. Classic Jack with his smarmy smartass attitude,  giving the waitress a hard time just for fun. I watched his facial expressions and noticed his voice placement then took to the mic. I did a few passes and then landed on one performance where I also adopted his persona as the Joker from Batman, "Wait till they get a loadda me" line. I sent off just one take. A couple days later I booked the gig and couldn't believe they hired me to be the voice of a bug with Jack Nicholson voice! Its for a national TV Spot for Zodiac Infestop.
