Batman Voice Actor Jason O’Mara On Bringing Something New To The Role

Posted by October 8, 2017 Comment

Daniel Celko writes from New York Comic Con 2017:

He hasn’t been part of the DC animated universe as often as others, but that doesn’t mean Jason O’Mara hasn’t had a part. He’s played Batman in seven of the 30 movies, but playing such a larger-than-life character comes with its own struggles. Since so many people have played this role, O’Mara has had to work extra hard to make his version of Batman unique. His approach, however, is a similar approach he takes to crafting any character.

Jason O'Mara

“The only way to find your version, truthfully and honestly, is to allow the character to affect you as an actor and as a human being. Then you, in turn, bring your own feelings and emotions and history to the character and slow and surely a performance comes out.”

The huge disc set is due out November 7th and retails at Amazon for $211.39. Here is a complete list of all
