Apple / Intel's new voice... drum roll, please!
Remember when I asked you if you knew who the new voice of the Apple / Intel TV advertisement was? Well, it's time to reveal the identity of the celebrity voice talent behind the microphone.
The celebrity voice over was performed by Kiefer Sutherland, a professional actor with deep Canadian roots. Did you know that his maternal grandfather gave Canadians our Public Healthcare System (Medicare)? Thank you Tommy Douglas! Kiefer's grandfather was also voted the Greatest Canadian on a CBC - Canadian Broadcasting Corporation - program in 2004. His Canadian parents, Shirley Douglas and Donald Sutherland, are acclaimed actors and national icons.
Some of Kiefer's voice-over work includes:
Television commercial voice-over for MGD (2003), television commercial voice-over for MCI (2003), television commercial voice-over for The Los Angeles Mentoring Partnership (2005), Narrator of "The Flight That Fought Back", and most recently, and a television commercial voice-over for Apple Computers (2006).
Kiefer's voice will thrill audiences again this Spring in the new Disney animated feature film, "The Wild", to be released in April 2006.
Thanks for reading!
Until next time,
