Here are 5 things that you may or may not have known about Robert Clotworthy:
Became Interested in Voice Acting at a Young Age
A lot of people will be familiar with Clotworthy in his role as a voice actor. It is interesting to note that he became interested in voice acting at an early age because of his father, who was involved in the production of commercials for the radio. As a result, Clotworthy got to meet a wide range of talented voice actors at an early age, who inspired him to follow in their footsteps.
Voiced Jim Raynor from StarCraft
One of Clotworthy’s most famous roles as a voice actor is Jim Raynor from Blizzard’s StarCraft franchise. Said character has had an important role in the franchise since the first StarCraft, but has become more and more important over time, culminating in his status as the main character of the Terran-focused installment of StarCraft II called Wings of Liberty. Naturally, Clotworthy also reprised the role for Heroes of the Storm, which features Jim Raynor along with a wide range of other characters from various Blizzard games.
Still Voice Acting in Video Games
Jim Raynor is not Clotworthy’s sole role in the world of video games. For example, he played Marshall Law in the fighting game Tekken 5 as well as its expansion, which was Dark Resurrection. Furthermore, he was involved in The Lego Movie Videogame, which is one of the numerous movie-based Lego video games made by TT Fusion. Recently, Clotworthy has even shown up as the voice actor for the Black Knight on one of Nintendo’s first mobile games Fire Emblem Heroes.
Narrates Ancient Aliens
The Curse of Oak Island is not the first time that Clotworthy has worked with a TV show broadcast on History. After all, he is the narrator of Ancient Aliens, which continues to run on the TV channel in spite of the fact that it started up in 2010. For those who are unfamiliar with the TV show, it is exactly what it sounds like, which is to say, centered around the idea that ancient civilizations were in contact with aliens. Suffice to say that the TV show has met with a less than enthusiastic response from the relevant segments of the scientific community, who have called it out for both its promotion of pseudohistory and its promotion of pseudoscience.
Narrates The Curse of Oak Island
Speaking of History, Clotworthy is the narrator for The Curse of Oak Island, which is one of its most popular TV shows at the moment. Said TV show is centered around the titular island, which has been the subject of numerous stories of secret treasure. Recently, Season 5 of the TV show has started up, though it remains to be seen whether the searchers will find anything interesting in the upcoming episodes as was promised by the promotional marketing.
