Tino Insana, Voice of Bushroot on Darkwing Duck, Has Died
Posted by Kristy Sproul on June 2, 2017 at 10:25 PM





The official Facebook Page of the Chicago-based improvisational theater group, The Second City, has reported that troupe alum and voice actor Tino Insana passed away Wednesday evening at the age of 69.

According to the group's tribute, "Tino was 'discovered' by producer Joyce Sloane when he and his friends Steve Beshekas and John Belushi were doing shows under the name of the 'West Compass Players.' Apparently, the trio was performing entire scenes that they had seen at Second City as part of their act. Instead of sending a cease and desist, Joyce and Bernie Sahlins hired John and Tino to be part of The Second City ensemble."





In the world of voiceover, Insana was best known for bringing to life the characters of Dr. Reginald Bushroot on Disney's Darkwing Duck and Uncle Ted on Bobby's World. Other notable voice credits include Pig on the Back to the Barnyard film and series, Mr. Grouper on Bubble Guppies, and Barf on Spaceballs: The Animated Series.

On-screen, he can be seen in such classic films as "Three Amigos, Beverly Hills Cop III, and Who's Harry Crumb?.

HASCON adult tickets start at $60 for a single day and run up to a whopping $642 for a three-day, VIP experience which includes a "Goodie Bag" filled with surprises and souvenirs, various evening activities, a green screen experience, and reserved theater seating for the Main Panels.

Posted by Kristy Sproul on November 3, 2016 at 5:30 PM




Back in March, Disney XD announced an animated series adaptation of Disney's Academy-Award film, Big Hero 6, would be coming to its channel sometime in 2017. Now we know that the upcoming series will also reunite much of the film's original cast to voice the lead characters in the show.

Reprising their film roles are Scott Adsit as Baymax, Ryan Potter as Hiro, Genesis Rodriguez as Honey Lemon, Jamie Chung as Go Go, Maya Rudolph as Aunt Cass, Alan Tudyk as Alistair Krei, David Shaughnessy as Heathcliff the Butler, and even Stan Lee as Fred's Dad.

Wasabi, voiced by Daymon Wayans Jr. in the film, will be voiced by Teen Titans Go! voice actor Khary Payton, and Saturday Night Live cast member Brooks Wheelan will take over voicing Fred in the new series.

Also announced as part of the series are guest stars Jenifer Lewis as Professor Granville, Andrew Scott as Obake, comedian Andy Richter as Globby, Diedrich Bader as Bluff Dunder, Susan Sullivan as Fred’s mother, Sean Giambrone as Richardson Mole, John Ross Bowie as Mel, and Haley Tju as Karmi.

The animated series picks up right after the events of the movie, following the adventures of Hiro, Baymax, and the rest of the Big Hero 6 team to protect the city. In his day-to-day life, Hiro faces academic challenges and social trials as the new prodigy at San Fransokyo Institute of Technology. Kim Possible creators Mark McCorckle and Bob Schooley will executive produce the show, along with Nick Filippi.

Keep an eye out for the new Big Hero 6 animated series coming to Disney XD next year.
