Meeting Quinton Flynn Tomorrow (Question Suggestions)

#1 Posted by mscupcakes (612 posts) -

So I've managed to fandangle myself a press pass for a convention this weekend so I'll get to hang with Quinton Flynn. I'm not going in any official capacity but it seems like a good opportunity to talk to a voice actor. I'm planning on bringing a copy of Sonic Generations for him to sign as a joke since I'm sure everyone else will have him sign Metal Gear Solid merchandise so I'll hope he'll see the humour in that. I'm thinking of doing a short interview with him so I'm looking for suggestions for questions to ask him which he won't be expecting (i.e. nothing about being Raiden). So far I've found out he did the voice of Christopher Walken in a short film so I'll be bringing that up for sure.

Ask him if he'd be interested in taking part of Rob Paulsen's Talkin Tunes podcast.

Ask him is he single, then pass this back to me.

@Dagbiker: He's a voice actor, most people know him as the voice of Raiden in Metal Gear Solid 2 and 4 and maybe Kon in Bleach.

Where's this at?

@eroticfishcake: It's ArcadeCon here in Dublin. (Ireland)

Ask him if he knows what so special about April 30th.

@mscupcakes: Ah right, thanks. I suppose I would've went to this if it weren't for the fact they're are other special guests that I've no idea who they are...that plus I live in North Dublin so Southside is completely alien to me. Doesn't help that I've a crap sense of direction but, eh. Maybe next year.

@eroticfishcake: You can get the number 4 and 7 buses from town to the D4 Hotel and ask the driver to tell you where to get off. :) And if you do decide to come we can hang! Just look for the Catherine cosplayer with the press pass! It is €35 for the weekend though. (which is pretty expensive compared to how cheap cons used to be)

@mscupcakes: Ah balls. Now I feel obliged that I should go just to see your Catherine cosplay. T_T But alas, I will be occupied over the weekend painting my sister's apartment (why she can't do it herself is a mystery to me.) Ah poo. Take some pictures if you can though, I've always wanted to attend these cons around Dublin though I've never had the chance. Cheers for the heads up though.

@eroticfishcake: Don't worry I'll have some pics and we can hang another time anyway 8)

Sneak your way through the con then choke him out and steal his clothes. Bonus points for hiding him naked in a locker. Everybody will then believe you're Quinton Flynn and you'll be able to punch people in the dick with impunity.

You're...a man?!?

@mscupcakes: Please ask him if he had any involvement or a script regarding Metal Gear Solid: Rising or was he only asked on-board when Platinum had started on Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance? Thanks.

@FLStyle: Hey I just got back from the con now and I'm really sorry to say I left before I saw your post. :/ I think I asked him some other interesting questions though. I'll be posting the interview tomorrow(-ish) if you want to check it out anyway :)

@mscupcakes: Ugh, fair enough, not your fault. I'll keep an eye out for it.

"Have you managed to avoid drowning?"

"Did you say 'nerd'?"

You should probably ask him about his role as Henry Cooldown in No More Heroes. Being that this character is Irish and the "cool, handsome foil" to the main character, Travis Touchdown.

@mscupcakes: Ask him what they cut out of Son's of Liberty after 9/11

Edit: Damnit, didn't see i was already too late.

Ask him if having a name like Quinton Flynn makes up for being Raiden. Nah, I'm kidding. Of course it does.

(There are conventions in Dublin?)

@Daneian: Sorry! If I ever manage to get an interview with David Hayter or Hideo Kojima I'll save that question for them :D
