I am Justin Roiland, writer, producer, director, and voice actor. Probably best known as the voice of Lemongrab(s), and creator of “House of Cosbys.” Soon to also be known for co-creating the upcoming Adult Swim animated show “Rick and Morty” with...
Hey guys! I’ve been hopelessly addicted to Reddit for a little over a year and never thought to do an AMA until last week. I look forward to answering as many questions (hopefully all) as I can. I’m also excited to start some early buzz on my Adult Swim show “Rick and Morty” as well as spread the word on my new website www.roilandtv.com which features a ton of my previous work, with new and/or old stuff being added every Friday (or at least, that’s the plan)
EDIT: Okay, alllll done for real now. Still had no time to draw anyone anything. I will come back at some point and post links to some drawings. Or I won't. You'll just have to hang tight and see.
A bit about Rick and Morty: It’s a half hour animated Sci-Fi comedy that premiers on Adult Swim this December. Rick (voiced by me) is a nihilistic scientist who drags his stupid grandson Morty (also voiced by me) on insanely dangerous adventures across the universe. Meanwhile, Morty’s mom (Sarah Chalke), dad (Chris Parnell), and sister (Spencer Grammer) hang around and have wonderful story lines of their very own. Sometimes the story lines even cross over! You won’t believe it! They often cross right into each other! We have some pretty incredible guest stars/ series regulars spread across season one: David Cross, Dana Carvey, Claudia Black, Virginia Hey, Nolan North, Phil Hendrie, Richard Christy, Tom Kenny, Rob Paulson, Maurice LeMarche, Tress MacNeille, Jess Harnell, Brandon Johnson, Cassie Steele, Aislinn Paul, Echo Kellum, and many others.
I must thank NBC for letting me borrow Dan for a year to run the writers room and get all the stories and scripts Harmonized. His time away from Community (season 4) was very well spent, trust me.
That’s it for my shameless plugs! Lets do this!
