Most of you know Mike Pataki as the brilliant voice behind George Liquor.

Or the best Klingon in Star Trek.
He is also a movie director and he has just made a film of world shattering import that explains everything. If you are wondering why everything sucks in the world and why you just can't seem to get a break, you'll have to see

By the way, say hi to Mike and let him know how you feel about him. He doesn't have internet, but I will print your comments and love out and bring them to him.

I never thought of you as a Star Trek kind of guy, John!

J.R. Spumkin said...

Oh, and didn't Harris Peet do George's voice in "Man's Best Friend?"

Niki said...

Is there at least a preview?

M. R Darbyshire said...

It has Michael Pataki, Ed Asner and exposed breasts by a fireplace-- Too bad oscar nominations are already decided!

M. R Darbyshire said...

Pass some love and affection on to Mike, for me.

Peet did George's voice in Season 1. Pataki did George's voice in Season 2. Pataki's voice somehow fits the character better.

Also, Pataki voiced the detention director in that one Dexter's Lab episode.

Michael's voice work is absolutely brilliant! He was born to play George!

I also loved his stuff on "Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures" with The Cow and many others.

Semaj:

I knew that voice sounded familiar! And here I was thinking I was having a stroke...probably am.

He got a Vulcan haircut when he was a small lad.


I'm sooooooooo excited to see the episode with some Pon Far action!!!

Trevor Thompson said...

I had no idea Pataki knew about the Illuminati. But yeah, they're out there and they control it all. Kinda makes me wonder why folks still vote.

Tell Mike I love his passion and acting, and one of my favorites was used on an episode of Mystery Science Theatre 3000 ( "Sidehackers" ). We love you Mike!!!

And say John, how did Mike come to perform voices on Bakshi's Mighty Mouse?

- trevor.

Go Mike! The only Klingon with Kahones enough to pick a fight with Scotty. The movie looks interesting. Finally something different out of Hollywood. Hope the audio is better than the trailer.

Sven Hoek said...

So THAT was Pataki in the Klingon gear? I remember that guy now. wow, what a great voice he uses for George.

What a talent. All hail Mike Pataki.

Yes sir!

Michael Pataki came into Cartoon Network last year for the Hoots Burley role in Out of Jimmy's Head, such a class act he was. Could tell what a seasoned pro he was by how well he took direction.

Rick Roberts said...

He was also that OTT Russian guy in Rocky IV and sadly, he was the best thing about that crappy film.

J.R. Spumkin said...

"He got a Vulcan haircut when he was just a small lad."

The mental image...astounding, is it not?

Peter Bernard said...

He also once played a kickass 1970s vampire.

Peter Bernard said...

Oh I checked his page, now I see why he got cast as George Liquor. Even my political operative friends have given up trying to say the Dems are the same as the Republicans since Obama closed Gitmo and is eradicating Bush's policies. I know one podcaster who still holds to that silly Republican-sponsored line of bullshit. Ask Pataki this-- if there's no difference between the parties, how come the Republicans spend so much money and time trying to steal elections in the US?

Mark Borok said...

He also directed one of my favorite movies ever, the R-rated (or X-rated) musical version of "Cinderella" ,starting Rainbeaux Smith, in 1977.

I've been dying for them to release this on DVD.
