Seth Green’s creative versatility is by no means breaking news. The lively actor, writer and producer has gained notice for his amusing roles both in animated creations and on-screen. Even so, the 40-year-old was “thrilled” to find out early Thursday that he had been nominated in the Emmy voice-over category for “Robot Chicken DC Comics Special II: Villains in Paradise.” “Robot Chicken” was also nominated for short-format animated program.
Where were you when you found out about the nominations, and how did you hear?
I was just waking up. The call coincided with my alarm. It was really confusing, actually. I tried to get at the gym at 6:30 a.m. and thought it was my alarm.
I forgot that it was happening. It’s sad to be waking up so early to go to the gym. But I was thrilled. It’s thrilling for us to be nominated. You never expect it. It’s comforting. We work all year on the show, and it takes a lot to make it. You don’t know if anyone pays attention to it, let alone like it. To be considered is such an honor.
