Specializing in voice-over, Andy Roth is one of New York’s busiest casting directors with a career that has spanned over two decades. After several years as the in-house casting director for one of the country’s top commercial talent agencies, Cunningham Escott Slevin & Doherty (CESD), where he did the voice casting for over a thousand projects for animation, commercial, television, film, video games and more, he decided to strike out on his own. Since then he has been working with many of the biggest advertising agencies, casting houses and production companies in the world. He has worked on projects for such high profile companies as Blizzard Entertainment, Disney, Rockstar Games, Calvin Klein, Geico, Fenway Park, Kraft, Bank of America and many more. His handiwork can be seen on just about any network, cable channel, video game system, and all over the Internet.
An award-winning producer, his most recent animated projects “Enchanted Thyme – The Delicious Adventure Series,” and “The Peculiar Adventures of Willow B. Star,” for which he served as both writer and producer, gained him national attention and a prestigious 2016 Telly Award. His first short film “The Lovers” starring Steven Ogg (Westworld, The Walking Dead, “Grand Theft Auto”) and Chris Phillips (Ice Age, Max Payne) was picked up for global distribution by Hypnotic. He then went on to work with “Daily Show” writer, J.R. Havlan to Co-Produce “The Catskill Chainsaw Redemption.”
With a teaching resume that boasts three of the Hollywood Reporter’s top rated college acting programs, Andy is a faculty member at New York University’s Tisch School and is a regular guest artist/speaker at many highly regarded acting programs including Rutgers and Syracuse. His voice-over workshops sell out months in advance, and he was twice voted “Best Voice-Over Teacher in NY” by “Backstage”.
