Milkshakes are dairy filled treats that people love to enjoy during the summer months. What people don’t usually think they are is lazy and pathologic liars because milkshakes can’t speak. Or at least that’s what they want us to think.
This is not the case for one particular milkshake, Master Shake. One of three main characters on the show Aqua Teen Hunger Force Master Shake is voiced by master actor Dana Snyder. The show is Snyder’s longest running credit beginning in 2000. Snyder started out getting his BFA in Theater and began a career in theater and still continues to do stage acting.
Acting, in any of the forms, is hard to break into. If he didn’t already know, Snyder must have learned that who you know in the business is more important than what you know, when he had his nontraditional audition.
“I went to college with a girl who went to high school with Dave Willis. We were in NY and he called her to ask if she knew anyone for this part for a new show, a crazy character that needed a crazy voice. So next thing I was auditioning at 3 in the morning on their voicemail answering machine and I heard back that the “voice” was exactly what they wanted”(CBS Local).
The next time you’re watching your favorite milkshake on Aqua Teen Hunger Force, remember there is a man behind the Master Shake.
