Matt Frewer



  1. Robin Williams, Aladdin, 1991.   Disney’s voice choices for the blue Genie included Frewer, Albert Brooks, John Candy, John Goodman, Steve Martin, Eddie Murphy, Martin Short… As if anyone could match Williams’ dazzling 16 hours of improv. (So much ad-lib finished on screen, the toon was denied any adapted script Oscar nomination!). In typical whirlwind manic brilliance (at union scale!), Williams used everyone from Ethel Merman to Groucho Marx, William F Buckley to Carol Channing, Nicholson to De Niro!   “Good but not great,” noted Chicago critic Roger Ebert, “with the exception of the Robin Williams sequences, which have a life and energy all their own.” Indeed.
  2. Paul McGann, Doctor Who (The Movie), TV, 1996.
  3. Eric Roberts, Doctor Who (The Movie), TV, 1996.
