My friend Jason Ruiz has been making his own cartoons since he was a teenager, and they have always been unbelievably funny and original. It was immediately clear to anyone who saw them that he was destined for great things. So, from that perspective, this news has been a long, long time coming. Jason has been working extremely hard for a number of years to make this possible, and it makes me incredibly happy to know that a lot more people will now get to see his talent, on a much bigger scale, as Fox has just ordered 13 episodes of the animated show he co-created called “Murder Police.” I’ve had the unique pleasure to see the show take shape up close because I play one of the characters, Detective John Rushour, the captain of the homicide squad. Some of the other characters are played by Penny Marshall, Chi McBride, Horatio Sanz, Will Sasso, and Jason himself. Murder Police as a pilot presentation has already been a delight to be a small part of, I look forward to seeing what Jason, David, and the rest of the team put together for the series, and I can’t wait to do more. Congratulations, Jason!

Chilly the Christmas Pole
I got to do a voice for this cartoon for the season finale of Web Soup, along with Justin Roiland, Brad Stevens, Jen Goldberg, and Vatche Panos (I play the evil Magistrate trying to destroy Christmas). It was made by the delightful Deanna Rooney and features music by handsome Mike Henry.
My friend Guy made this unofficial music video for The Knife’s song “Heartbeats.” It’s really good.
