David Hornsby

Mr David Hornsby’s lengthy resume includes acting gigs in the feature films Flags of Our Fathers and Christmas with the Kranks. On TV, he’s appeared on Six Feet Under and The Joe Schmo Show (he was ’the Asshole’). He’s played Matthew Mara on Eric Robles’s favorite show, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, a project on which he’s also been story editor and supervising producer. While he’s been busy lately on the new FOX pilot Boldly Going Nowhere, David’s destined to be best remembered as the voice of America’s most-beloved cartoon character, Fanboy. Here, we tried his patience with this brief but wildly informative interview.

Frederator: What’s the David Hornsby Story, in 150 words or less?

David: I’m a Southerner. I grew up going to private school in Houston, Texas where, in high school, we’d wear what we call a ‘Texas Tux’ to proms. (Top half tux, cummerbund, bottom half jeans and boots.) At one point when I [Read more…]

Frederator: What was your favorite cartoon growing up?

Meet Mairghread Scott

Mairghread Scott and Itai Grunfeld
Mairghread Scott puts the clamp down on writer Itai Grunfeld. TREAD!

Frederator: Describe your chores on Fanboy & Chum Chum, please.

Mairghread: My job is Executive Assistant to Eric (Robles) and Steve (Tompkins), so I’m in charge of making sure the guys know where they’re going, which people asked them for what (and when they need it by), and in general handling the chaos that comes with cartoons. And yes, I do keep a pad of paper by me to write it all down.

Frederator: Where did you grow up?

Mairghread: I grew up in Dearborn, Michigan. It’s a nice town right outside of Detroit where everything is named after the Ford Motor Company. Oh, and I’m told we have the largest Arabic population in the country, so there’s that too.

Frederator: What was your favorite cartoon as a kid?

Mairghread: Batman: The Animated Series (and if no one’s around, Sailor Moon).

Frederator: Did you go to school to be doing [Read more…]
