Raymond S. Persi voices the character of Flash in Disney's ZOOTOPIA, the fastest sloth in the DMV (Department of Mammal Vehicles), but he's no ordinary voice actor. Persi is actually a story artist for Walt Disney Animation Studios and an Emmy Award-winning director (for the 2006 "Simpsons" Episode: "The Seemingly Neverending Story"), and fell into the role by accident. CineMovie sat down with Persi to talk about voicing the slow-speaking character, and how he was recruited for the role.
Raymond S. Persi has worked as the story artist on Disney's WRECK-IT RALPH, FROZEN and the Oscar-winning animated short, FEAST for which his two dogs served as his models. His talents extend to the recording booth having played roles in WRECK-IT RALPH as Gene, the martini-swilling Nicelander.
ZOOTOPIA is now on Digitial Download, Blu-ray and DVD.
