Our Interview with Jon St. John

Category: Duke Nukem

Q1: How did you first get hired as the voice of Duke Nukem?

While working as the creative services director for a San Diego radio station in 1995, I met Lani Minella, a video game voice casting director, who was in my studio to record some commercial project. We started showing-off doing character voices for each other, and she asked me if I would like to audition for some video game voice work. Naturally I said yes, and Duke Nukem 3D was one of the first games that I auditioned for and booked.

Q2: Did you do any voice work for Duke Nukem Forever prior to 2009/2010?

Only for trailer teasers and a 3D Realms Xmas party spoof video. I wasn't convinced at that time that DNF was actually even going to happen. But in November of 2009 I was contacted and told the game would in fact be finished and that it needed my VO recordings shortly thereafter.

Q3: What's the most outrageous thing that you've ever been asked to say for a Duke Nukem game?

Most everything Duke says is can I pick one? I outta rip out your eyeball and piss on your brain for even asking that question!

Q4: What are some recent videogames that you've provided voice work for?

Jimmy Johnsons' "Anything with Wheels", "Guild Wars2", "Rochard", and a few others that I am not at liberty to mention at this time.

Q5: Have you provided voices for any 3D Realms titles other then the Duke Nukem series?


Q6: Does Gearbox have any super secret Duke Nukem projects in development?

I think they always have secret projects in the works, but as a voice actor, I am not told about them... and when I am, I'm told to keep my mouth shut. Sorry.

Q7: What is the strangest thing you've ever been asked to say in a voice over session?

In the Duke Nukem voice I have proposed marriage to a woman on some dudes behalf.  I guess he DIDN'T have the Balls of Steel for it.

Q8: What is your favorite Duke one-liner?

"I'll rip your head off and shit down your neck."

Q9: Have you completed Duke Nukem 3D and Duke Nukem Forever?

Yes - 3D many times over. DNF - only once. Not enough time to play with myself these days!

Q10: Have you ever thought of opening an answering service?

No, but I do sell custom Duke-voiced ring tones and greating messages. Want some?

Thanks Jon!
