The Interview [Timestamp 41:20]: You may not get to see his face very often, but there’s no doubt you’ve heard Ben Giroux’s voice – especially if you’ve tuned into Nickelodeon any time in the last ten or so years. He’s had audiences giggling (and sometimes cowering in fear) from adult baby supervillain, The Toddler in the Henry Danger series and many other credits as both in front of the camera and behind the mic. Now, Nickelodeon has tapped Giroux to voice the titular character in their upcoming Paramount+ animated series, Big Nate. The 22-minute animated series is based off of the globally popular comic and book series and is set to follow Giroux’s Nate Wright as he navigates the ups and downs of middle school. Join Johnathon and Coryon as they virtually sit down with Giroux learning more about his passion for creating, the feel good vibes behind the scenes at Big Nate and whether or not he stalks fan comments on Reddit!
