Flynn seamlessly shape shifts from the deep, sinister and sexy, mad-scientist, Dr. Krankcase – Skylanders: Trap Team, to the polite and earnest Silver The Hedgehog in the Sonic game series! And his twisted Irish hitman Sir Henry Cooldown provided the right spice in the action-adventure hack and slash video games No More Heroes 1 & 2. He also lent his vocal gymnastics to – Star Wars: The Old Republic, Avatar The Last Airbender, Crash Bandicoot, Mass Effect, World of Warcraft, Batman Arkham City Origins, Lord Of the Rings and Pirates of the Caribbean to name a few.
Flynn’s Fan Favorite, the lovably nerdy Sheldon Lee, is back in My Life As A Teenage Robot on Amazon Prime! The resurgence of interest in that Nickelodeon animated gem also features Quinton as the heroic Sliver Shell and the despicable Don Prima + more than 50 other incidental voices!! So, Get In Like Flynn!
