Streaming personality Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has announced that he is taking on a voice acting role for a TV show. The news was revealed via the Twitch star’s Twitter.
The announcement tweet reads: “I actually recorded my first voice over for a main role in a TV show today. Although I can’t share more yet, voice acting is so fun. A huge passion of mine that I’m starting to get to live out.”
This may be the star’s first major role, but it isn’t his first TV appearance. After all, he did assume the role of Ice Cream during the second season of The Masked Singer. On the silver screen, he is also set to make a cameo appearance in the upcoming virtual world action comedy title, Free Guy, alongside the likes of industry peers Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys and Seán ‘Jacksepticeye’ McLoughlin.
According to Jessica Blevins, Ninja’s wife and manager, the pair were also due to make an appearance in 2019’s Jumanji: The Next Level, though it was unfortunately canned in the final cut.
You guys remember me telling you that Tyler and I filmed a scene in Jumanji where he was a douche DJ in college and I was at the party with my boyfriend that wasn’t tyler? MEET BRUNO! Haha. Such amazing memories. I hope they release the scene on YouTube. https://t.co/TL2nYTH3D3
