So let’s talk about your most important and most beloved role first. E-123 Omega in Sonic the Hedgehog.

(Kidding! For those that somehow don’t know you, can you tell us some of the titles you’ve been in?)

Jon

Most recently: Star Trek:Online, Guild Wars II, DoTA II, D&D Neverwinter, and just last week I voiced parts for a new game called Space Noir. Oh yea…and Duke Nukem since 1995.

mattmagician

Awesome! So, speaking of Sonic. What was it like having worked on Duke Nukem, and switching to the different Sonic characters?

Jon

Not as strange as recording The Candyland Adventure Game directly after doing Duke 3D! So I went from Duke to Lord Licorice, Gloppy, and Jolly! Weeeee!

I’ll straight up ask it. What do you think of Duke Nukem Forever? Was it worth the wait? How often did they talk to you about production?

Jon

I knew nothing about DNF until a few months before it was released, so there was no anticipation, or anxiety if that’s what you mean. I had figured it would be a cold day in hell before another Duke game ever came out at that point.

You’re SUPER active on your Facebook, and you more often than reply to a fan’s messages. How do you make time for work, conventions, and still being so awesome to your fans?

Jon

I just make as much time as I can…it can be overwhelming sometimes trying to respond to everyone’s messages. Sometimes I don’t respond, but I think fans understand that.

mattmagician

I’m sure they do! What one situation would you drop Duke in if you could? If they came to you and asked what you’d like to see in the next Duke Nukem game, what would your answer be RIGHT now.

Jon

More weapons available at more times. Duke can handle any weapon, so let him at ’em!

mattmagician

You seem to really love all the roles you’ve done, not just Duke. But it’s fair to say that Duke is the king, right?

Jon

Always bet on Duke.

mattmagician

What’d you think of Midwest Media Expo’s first year? Have any instant memories?

Jon

Lovely, polite, nice, people! I enjoyed the fans over there so much.

mattmagician

Alright, so I saw that you’re trying to get Duke on Robot Chicken? Tell me a little bit about this, how can your fans help?

Jon

Hit Seth Green up with messages. Point him to my facebook post about this. Duke would be great ripping off somebody’s head, don’t you think? Maybe Big the Cat’s head!!

mattmagician

I could see it! Alright man, Anything else you want to say to your fans? Plug, anything like that?

Jon

Thanks so much for buying and playing the Duke Nukem games…help me keep Duke alive…show your support!
