Published: April 20, 2014 at 8:26 PMAny article that mentions both Aaron Sorkin and the walk-and-talk is tops in my book! (Sports Night may have been the best show not named Babylon 5 or Firefly to ever grace my TV screen). Great stuff, Bryan. Informative as well as an excellent change of pace. Thank you!
Published: April 20, 2014 at 10:37 PMGreat article Bryan. It's interesting how a little bit of the outside world sneaks its way into the secluded Disney world. But I would feel remiss if we didn't mention the great Gary Sinise and (especially) Eric Idle, found at Mission Space and Imagination respectively.
Oh, and I hadn't known that NPH was the voice on California Screamin. Probably the only good thing you can find on that ride.
Published: April 21, 2014 at 4:33 AMThanks guys. James Rao, "Sports Night" is one of my favorites, too. (I can never hear "Eli's Coming" without thinking of that show.) James Trexen, good call on Sinise and Idle. Epcot is a magnet for guest stars. There's also Jamie Lee Curtis, as Judy Peterson, on Ellen's Energy Adventure.

Published: April 21, 2014 at 6:23 AMNot many people notice (or maybe just don't know) Ken Marino. Well done.
Published: April 21, 2014 at 10:21 AMGreat article!!
What about Gary Sinise (aka Lt. Dan) doing Mission: Space at epcot?
Personally, I was always a bigger fan of hearing Jeremy Irons on the Spaceship Earth voiceover. Nothing like hearing Scar or Simon Gruber telling me about the history of communication.
Published: April 21, 2014 at 12:10 PMThey are mostly WDW attractions. Disneyland Resort has some infamous celebrity stars like Rosie O'Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg narrate some attractions. Thankfully, Whoopi is gone along with Golden Dreams, while Rosie is still there in the Boudin Bakery tours.
While at the Disney Cruise and Hong Kong Disneyland, you get to see CEO Robert Iger in the Golden Mickeys show. I think most people don't know who he is although I do and thought it was just weird to see the CEO in the show.

Published: April 22, 2014 at 3:53 AMI am officially on TPI strike... how can you leave off the finest actor the world has ever known???
Published: April 22, 2014 at 3:22 PMIf we're going to count "Under New Management," we should also include Elizabeth Shue and Tim "Otter" Matheson on the defunct "Body Wars" attraction.
Of course, if we include Body Wars, we'll also have to include Cranium Command and that might take a while.
