- TNA star Hulk Hogan's voice is featured in the Second Season of Adult Swim's "China, IL" cartoon show, which premiers Sunday night. Spinoff Online talked to the show's producers about working with Hogan to provide his voice for the show.
"He is excited about Brooke (Hogan)’s involvement, as well. He loves it. It’s really great that we have Brooke, and that she’s so talented. That gives him an additional investment," said executive producer Daniel Weidenfeld. "(Producer) Brad (Neely) had to go to Tampa to record him once, but for the most part, he does all of his recordings in Tampa remotely. He came here (to Los Angeles) once, and I’ve never seen anything like it." [ LINK: Full Interview HERE ]
- A new trailer has been released for the Hulk Hogan fandom documentary "Sadermania," which chronicles a Hogan fan turning his life around and becoming friends with Hogan. Hogan is featured in the new trailer.
The director, Adam Gacka, is attempting to distribute the film to reach a wider audience after the movie initially premiered at the Chicago International Film Festival in 2011.
