Big Time Movie stars Trevor Devall as big time villain
After an impressive career in the voice-over industry spanning over 12 years, Trevor Devall has returned to the on-camera world with the lead villain role in Big Time Movie. The film, an anticipated spin-off from Nickelodeon’s hit series, Big Time Rush, is currently airing on the network.
The award-winning Canadian actor plays Sir Atticus Moon, a multi-billionaire James Bond-style villain (right down to the white suit and lap-cat) with an evil plan to rule the world.
Big Time Movie was inspired by the Fab Four and will feature covers of Beatles songs, including “Help!”, “A Hard Day’s Night,” “We Can Work It Out” and “Revolution.” In the film, the Big Time Rush boys (Kendall, James, Carlos and Logan—four hockey players from Minnesota selected to form a boy band) depart for London for a concert, but end up having to team up with spies to save the world instead. It's when their bags get switched at the airport that hilarity ensues.
“It’s a Nickelodeon take on James Bond meets Austin Powers, featuring covers of classic Beatles songs that both kids and their parents can enjoy,” said Nickelodeon’s President of Original Programming and Development, Marjorie Cohn.
A native of Edmonton, Alberta, Devall is a prolific voice artist, having performed in hundreds of animated productions including television movies, series, feature films and video games.
Devall's extensive and ongoing list of animated series work includes the roles of Dukey on Johnny Test, Dad in Kid vs. Kat, Pyro in X-Men: Evolution, Wild Weasel in G.I. Joe: Valor vs. Venom, Moordryd Payne on Dragon Booster, Alpha Q in Transformers: Energon and many more.
When he isn’t on set or in the studio, Devall hosts the popular podcast, “Voiceprint with Trevor Devall and Guests,” which features some of animation’s biggest voice performers. This engaging internet talk show can be heard on Devall’s website or downloaded for free on iTunes.
Devall stays active elsewhere in the voiceover community as well, working as a voice-acting coach at some of Vancouver's finest institutions.
It has been an interesting road to voiceover and on-camera work for Devall, who studied Drama and Classics at the University of Alberta. After graduation, Devall had every intention of pursuing a career as a filmmaker and director, until he discovered a natural fit in the acting realm.
Since then, he has amassed an incredible amount of credits, and continues to expand his skillset within the industry. Devall is thrilled at the opportunity to now tackle the exciting world of on-screen acting again, in Big Time Movie.
