Bob Cole

I'm currently living in Colorado and am working at Shallots Restaurant, where the service is amazing and the customers rave over our menu and our baked goods.

CHARACTERS PERFORMED

I played Frank Thomas. It wasn't easy connecting with Frank for me at first because he is an angry homophobe that abuses his wife and kids and I don't think I have a hateful bone in my body. But once I realized that this is acting, I felt his character and enjoyed the many laughs frank brings.

FAVORITE DBB CHARACTER

Wow! That's a tough question. I've read the book and loved and learned to hate so many of the characters, but because I recorded with Christy Hartranft and watched her own the character of Frank's wife, Mary Jo Thomas, Crazy Mary Jo, became my favorite.

FAVORITE DBB ART

Cross-Eyed Knife Warrior. Be careful looking in the windows of that drawing or you just might learn what Seven Mile is all about.

FAVORITE LINES

Frank has a lot of great lines and some of my favorite lines are lines from some of the other awesome characters that kept me laughing. I really enjoyed Momma's Kitchen Knives. Frank really lets his hypocrite friends have it in that chapter.

HOW DID YOU LEARN ABOUT DEVIL'S BACKBONE: THE INVISIBLE WALLS OF SEVEN MILE?

I met the author, George Caudill when I was homeless and living in a field. George and my friends back home rescued me from those cold desert nights. About a year later, out of the blue, George called and asked if I would be interested in playing a character in his fabulous production.

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO BECOME A VOICE ACTOR?

 My voice I guess. George told me I had a strong voice and offered me and my wonderful friends, Roger and Christy, a part in the audio play.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THE BOOK?

Incredibly funny, but at the same time, sensitive and serious enough to make you realize that good and evil really do exist.

HOW WAS YOUR EXPERIENCE IN THE STUDIO?

Very professional with what appeared to be a very high-tech studio, but was also entertaining at the same time. George, Brandon, and Lisa put us all at ease as we enjoyed listening to our takes. We all felt a closeness like family for sure. Brandon and George are very gentle and professional. They directed us in such a manner that after a while, I started believing I was actually Frank Thomas.
