Jim Freni

Hyde Park, New York, US

Highlights

I am a Versatile, Character Specialist and… the Guy Next Door. My innate acting ability and inborn sense of rhythm enables me to contort my voice into hundreds of manipulations to fit any need:
Easy Going, Announcer, Ethnic, Regional, Cartoon, Middle Class Handsome, Game Show Host, Elderly, Youthful, Feminine, Masculine, Overreaching, Political, Dark, Light, Silly, Ominous, Hip, Street, Rapper, and a little bit of Beatbox.
I am quite a gifted mimic able to perform many familiar character impersonations. These dialects are malleable and can also be applied to various cartoon and " quirky" manifestations.(Variation Example: Drunk, British, Pirate, Lisp can also be Drunk British Pirate with a lisp) I can mix it up, and I love a new challenge.
