Testament’s Chuck Billy was featured in a new episode of Marvel’s “What If…?,” titled “What If… Doctor Strange Lost His Heart Instead Of His Hands?.” The frontman was said to have provided “additional voices” to the Disney+ series.
Billy discussed the experience during a recent appearance on Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta’s “The Jasta Show”:
“That was an experience, because the producer was actually a TESTAMENT fan, and he actually seeked [sic] me out. And it was so great and made it so easy. I’d never done that for a movie and action part. So when you go in there, they got this — it’s like a barricade you stand in front of, a padded barricade, and there’s the screen and the microphone. So you can use the barricade to kind of move and get into character. And I was doing a lot of flying and yelling and fighting and shit like that. So it was great, ’cause the producer was, like, ‘All right, so on this part, do the ‘Demonic’ voice.’ And I’m, like, ‘Oh, okay.’ So I’d do that. ‘Okay, on this one, do the ‘Practice What You Preach’ voice.’ It was so cool that he could give me direction like that. It was the easiest thing. And I had a blast. And it was right the middle of COVID.”
He also added:
“It’s gonna be out on the Disney network channel, so I went down to Disney in L.A. Total protocol. At least I got to go in there and do my own thing with them. But it was really cool. And if it goes well, I’m gonna get second season. So that’s something I’m looking forward to. It was badass. I think people are gonna dig it when this comes out.”
