"Paddy" sure knows how to paint a picture
Patrick Warburton has one of the most recognised voices in the world with over 150 movie and TV credits to his name.
He's best known for his roles as "Puddy" in the NBC hot comedy 'Seinfeld', Jeff Bingham on 'Rules of Engagement', Krunk from the 'The Emperor’s New Groove', Buzz Lightyear in 'Buzz Lightyear of Star Command', the paraplegic and overzealous cop, "Joe Swanson," on the hit comedy 'Family Guy' and my personal favourite, "Tick" from FOX's short-lived series 'The Tick'.
And with the all-American actor hitting our shores to attend the Dublin Comic Con 2019 (Saturday, August 10th - Sunday, August 11th), we asked him into Today FM Headquarters for a catch-up.
Baz Ashmawy, who's filling on Dermot and Dave, was very giddy to have one of his "huge man crushes" in studio. He's so smitten, he even tries to invite the big man on a subtle GAA date.
Warburton tells us about how he landed the part of "Puddy" in the aforementioned 'Seinfeld', and reveals how it "it was just supposed to be one episode".
Here's a little something to help jog your memory:
The lads then move on to the topic of family, which leads to Patrick regaling us with the story of a magical trip Ireland, "my wife and I and our 4 kids walked to the Giant's Causeway and we were the only 6 people there for about and hour. There was not another soul, and there was a giant rainbow...it was the most special time as the family together. My idea of heaven".
I still cannot get over how booming his voice is. They say his snoring triggers richter scales, so if you feel any trembles this weekend - now you know why.
