Miami Heat star Chris Bosh swapped the hardwood for the recording booth last August, and it looks like he could have a post-NBA career lined up already.
Bosh guest starred in an episode of Cartoon Network's animation 'Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H' and the results are pretty impressive.
In the 55 second clip you can see above, Bosh's voice sounds pretty cool and according to the big man it took some work to get right.
“You kind of have to get your vocal cords loose a little bit I found out,” he said. “You do quite a bit of yelling. But we watched parts that we were talking in, we went over the script, and after we did all of that we were able to lay the tracks down for the voice.”
“It started out just talking in my own voice, Bosh said. “And then I got more instruction as it went on, and we just finally found a happy medium that really works for the character, and once I found that, it was a little bit easier to just keep going and read my lines.”
Bosh went on to provide a bit more background info on the project and why he got involved:
“I’ve been really interested in doing things like this, so I wanted to really get out there and kind of get my feet wet and have a little bit of fun,” the center said. “Disney XD, they were very nice in extending the opportunity, and I just wanted to kind of take it and run with it.”
“The character I play is Heimdall,” Bosh told FTW. “He’s a super-serious guy. He’s the protector of Asgard, one of Thor’s buddies. The episode I taped, they’re hosting the Hulk and his fellas to their place.”
“I love reaching out to kids, and I just kind of wanted to show them that you can do other things,” he went on to add. “And you know, I like being a big kid myself. So just having the opportunity to just sort of have fun and not really worry about a lot of things, this was a perfect opportunity for that.”
The 29-year old still has quite a few years of professional basketball ahead of him, and while his focus for now may be on winning more titles with the Heat, at least he has options for when the time comes that he will call it a day.
