The Real Batman
This is amazing! Kevin Conroy and Tim Daly (aka most iconic voices of Batman and Superman in movies/TV/video games).
My life is complete
I got a job at a mailroom in Manhattan the summer that I was 17, and I was one of the guys who pushes the carts through the city streets. I saved a lot of money and while I was there, I auditioned for Juilliard at the mailroom. And the guys would see me prepare my audition material and all these guys were young fathers, immigrant kids, living in the kids in the Bronx in Brooklyn, and there’s this 17-year-old kid coming in on the train to save money to try and get out of the insane house he’s living in, working on plays to audition for Juilliard.
"You’re never going to get into Juilliard! You crazy, man? You’re gonna get into Juilliard? That—they don’t—that—Juilli-ARD?" So they started calling me "Shakespeare". "Hey Shakespeare, what you workin’ on today, Shakespeare?"
I was so unquestioning about this; “I gotta do this”, I gotta do this to get out of my house, and the only ticket out of here is through Juilliard. And to make it harder, they’re going to have to give me a scholarship.
So I’m cramming these lines in the mailroom with these guys going “Shakespeare, you’re not gonna get into Juilliard!”. The day I got the letter saying I got in, they went crazy. They started chanting “JUILLI-FUCKING-ARD! JUILLI-FUCKING-ARD! SHAKESPEARE GOT INTO JUILLI-FUCKING-ARD!”. So they took me out to lunch that day; they were the greatest guys.

They’re so adorable.
Zachary Quinto is back on the show tonight! Last time he stopped by, he had some vocab to explain.
