August 26, 2010: Ed Asner Returns as Granny Goodness in "Superman/Batman: Apocalypse"

Granny Goodness Voices From Krypton has an interview with Ed Asner, the voice of Granny Goodness in the upcoming "Superman/Batman: Apocalypse". Asner previously voiced Granny in "Superman: The Animated Series", "Justice League", and "Justice League Unlimited". Asner is best known for playing Lou Grant on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" (and "Rhoda") and on "Lou Grant". He has won more acting Emmys than any other actor (seven total) and is the only actor to win an Emmy for the same role in comedy and drama. Asner explains in the interview why he enjoys doing cartoon voice work:

    It's always a trip a joyful trip to come into the studio, and especially working with this group. Andrea (Romano) is a delight to work with, and Bruce (Timm) knows this genre better than anybody. Plus, it's the ability to let your imagination take flight - to take chances, to plunge and to soar. That's something you don't get to do as an actor. You get to do it as a kid. So I grab the opportunity as often as I can.
