High-profile agency alumni
Many of Mary Collins’ actors have gone on to high-profile careers, such as Renee Zellweger, who the agency represented in the 1990s. After booking her on Love and a .45, Renee garnered so much critical praise from her performance that she moved to LA and soon-thereafter shot Jerry Maguire. Other performers previously represented by the Agency have appeared as Guest Stars and Series Regulars on CSI: Miami, 24, Two-and-a-Half Men, Desperate Housewives, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, JAG, Seinfeld, General Hospital, Young & the Restless, in addition to hundreds of roles in television, feature film, Broadway, Off-Broadway and national touring companies.
Interactive Games & Toys
We know how to play the game!
Mary Collins voices can be heard on many of the most popular and successful video games, including Borderlands, Brothers In Arms, Gears of War, the Age of Empires series, Bloodrayne and Roadkill, and Unreal Tournament & Championship. Many of the agency’s voice actors are very experienced in this genre and understand the nuances of the voice reads, styles and delivery required for interactive games. In fact, many of them are gamers themselves! We also provide voices for other games too like Guitar Hero 4 & 5, Trivial Pursuit, Bob-it and Twister Moves, in addition to many animated holiday toys and decorations!
