Townsend Colman

  1. Chip Zien, Howard The Duck, 1985.    Everybody wanted to voice Marvel’s Howard T Duck… John Cusack, Jay Leno, Rob Paulsen, Martin Short, Robin Williams. And New Yorker Colman, with close to a hundred voicing credits today from Inspector Gadget in the 80s to (like Paulsen) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in 2014. Zien was not a voice-actor. Howard was the big deal production of the year… massive budget… George Lucas, Mr Star Wars, producing… his American Graffiti writers, writing. And. It. Bombed! Willard Huyck never directed again. And in need of cash for his Skywalker Ranch, Lucas sold to Steve Jobs what became… Pixar!
