Guest of Honor Announcement: Ben Diskin (Voice Actor)

ben 155

A voice actor since before the universe was born, Ben Diskin has over 13.8 billion years of VO experience.  He spends his Sunday mornings wrestling manticores in the Pit of Despair before driving cross-country to teach a bible studies class to chionophobic Eskimos.  When not engaging in meals consisting of raw concrete and the souls of the damned, Ben is usually on the hunt for more plutonium to power his time machine that he built out of spaghetti and recycled Scooby-Doo chia pets.  Although he has been frequently locked out of his own brain, Ben maintains a firm belief that one day the California Raisins will descend from the heavens to grant him the gift of sweet, sweet oblivion.  During the week, when he isn’t being sponge-bathed by an army of 10,000 delirious, rabies-infested, Slavic, werewolf supermodels, Ben can be found eating a gaping hole in the planet and screaming, “Beat you to it, Galactus!!!!” at the top of his lungs.  The only thing louder than Ben’s voice is the sound of everyone who works at Anime Conji collectively saying, “Okay, seriously, we really shouldn’t let voice actors write their own bios anymore.  They’re all insane.”

Fabricated nonsense aside, Ben Diskin has been in “Hey Arnold!” as Eugene, “Codename: Kids Next Door” as Numbuh 1 and Numbuh 2, “The Spectacular Spider-Man” as Venom, and “Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.” as Skaar.  In anime, Diskin has been in “Naruto Shippuden” as Sai, “K” as Misaki Yata, “Blood+” as Kai Miyagusuku, “Tenkai Knights” as Toxsa, and “Digimon Fusion” as Shoutmon and Cutemon.  Diskin has been in a bunch of video games too, including playing the role of Young Master Xehanort in “Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance.”  He will be appearing in a bunch of new stuff that’s just on the horizon too, so keep your ears out!

Ben Diskin will be signing autographs, holding a Q&A panel, and participating in a karaoke party along with Kyle Hebert.
