D.C. Douglas will forever be known as the sinister voice of Albert Wesker (“Resident Evil”), screaming “Chriiiisssss” as he melts in a lava lake. This is a far cry from his other roles, such as the persnickety alien Zepht in “Star Trek: Enterprise” or the logical Legion in the “Mass Effect” videogame series. He's been in all sorts of video games, as The Master in “Buffy,” “The Vampire Slayer,” AWACS in “Ace Combat 6,” Archangel Michael in “Might & Magic Heroes VI,” Raven in “Tekken 6″ and “Street Fighter X Tekken,” and Albert Wesker in “Resident Evil: Umbrella,” & “Darkside Chronicles,” “Mercenaries,” “Capcom Versus Marvel 3” and “Resident Evil 5.” He gave voice to the Geth as Legion in “Mass Effect 2 & 3.” Douglas’ anime credits include President Paradine in “Tales of Graces f.” Alexei Dinoia in “Tales of Vesperia.” Kelvin Garr in “Tales of the World,” Grimoire Noir in “Nier Replicant,” Gabi & Taihaku in “.hack Vol1 & 2,” Genji Kamogawa in “Hajime no ippo,” and Shori Shibuya in “God, Save Our King!” Recent television appearances include “Castle,” “Workaholics,” “Criminal Minds,” “NCIS: Los Angeles,” and “2 Broke Girls.” Highlight credits for fans of sci-fi, horror and fantasy include “Star Trek: Enterprise,” “Charmed,” “Passions,” “Titanic II,” and “666: The Child.” Douglas can be seen in the upcoming sci-fi thriller, “Apocalypse Kiss” as the serial killer Adrian (an homage to Albert Wesker) starring alongside Troma Pictures legend, Lloyd Kaufman.
Brooklyn born and raised singer/songwriter Eric Stuart is a special blend of talent. He has successfully combined the world of music, voice acting and directing for many years. Besides starring in hit shows including Pokémon (Brock, James) and Yu-Gi-Oh! (Seto Kaiba), Eric has toured with such rock legends as Peter Frampton, Ringo Starr, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Jethro Tull, Chicago, Hall & Oates, Dave Mason, Julian Cope, Dave Davies, The Alarm, John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band, and Jeffrey Gaines.
The Eric Stuart Band released their latest album, Lipstick and Barbed Wire, in June 2013. This is their sixth full-length release on the indie label Widow’s Peak Records and it features Grammy winning guitarist Peter Frampton.
In the summer of 1997, Eric’s classic rock and roll style was noticed by Ringo Starr who invited him to open the Ringo Starr and His All-Starr Band tour, featuring Peter Frampton, Jack Bruce (Cream), Gary Brooker (Procol Harum) and Simon Kirke (Bad Company). That exposure served as a springboard for Eric to open for the Lynyrd Skynyrd, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Paul Rodgers tour that same summer. Since then, Eric Stuart has been touring on a regular basis including two U.S. tours with Peter Frampton. In 2000, Frampton produced Eric’s next album, Blue, Dressed In Black, along with John Regan and Harvey Jay Goldberg.
Now living in Nashville, Eric’s songwriting talents have given him the opportunity to begin co-writing with some of Nashville’s finest songwriters. The band’s great live show of all original, guitar-driven rock/pop has made the Eric Stuart Band a must-see in the area. Other projects in Eric's impressive career are Viva Piñata, Ultimate Muscle, Dinosaur King, Kirby, Slayers, Chaotic, Sonic X, TMNT, GoGoRiki, One Piece, F-Zero, Magical DoReMi, Fighting Foodons, Shaman King, Descendants Of Darkness, Labyrinth Of Flames, Valkyrie Profile, Tama And Friends, and voicing many national radio and TV commercials and audiobook narrations.
