Voiceover Like Jake Johnson
Voiceover That Sounds like Jake Johnson
“Who’s that girl? (Who’s that girl?) It’s Jess!”
Now that the theme song from New Girl is stuck in your head, let’s move on to someone we will forever see as Nick Miller: Jake Johnson. Best known as Nick Miller on the show New Girl, Jake Johnson, alongside Zooey Deschanel in the role of Jess Day, perfectly played one-half of the roommate-to-relationship storyline. His relatable, goofy, and charming character had audiences tuning in every week. (Did they get together or didn’t they? Don’t worry — we won’t include spoilers here.)
Funny, Confident and Sarcastic Voices
Not only has he connected with audiences in front of a camera, but, as a male voiceover talent, he’s lent his voice to Peter Parker in the animated film Into the Spider-verse. His portrayal of a confident, funny, and sometimes-sarcastic middle-aged Peter Parker helped the film win an Oscar for Best Animated Feature in 2018.
