Voice over

D.C. also works as a voice over performer in television and radio commercials as well as voice-matching celebrities like Val Kilmer and Kevin Spacey. He was part of the first wave of voice over artists at the beginning of this century who built and worked from home studios, and now performs 80% of his work from home.

Recent voice over credits include The Master in the "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" video game, Albert Wesker in "Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles", "Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles" and "Resident Evil 5" Raven in Tekken 6, AWACS Ghost Eye in "Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation", Commandant Alexei in Tales of Vesperia, Legion in Mass Effect 2, Grimoire Noir in Nier (video game), as well as several national campaigns (including the GEICO celebrity TV commercials and the McDonald's "Be The Sizzle" commercials).

In April, 2010, Douglas came under fire from the Tea Party movement for a phone call he made to Freedomworks in which he left an inflamatory voice mail. This led GEICO to drop him from the "shocking news" campaign that was in post-production.[6] Douglas responded by producing a Tea Party PSA for YouTube that was subsequently broadcast on Joy Behar's HLN show with Douglas as a guest.[7]
