Has anyone else found themselves wishing they could have their lives narrated after watching Jane The Virgin? It can't be just me, right? Jane The Virgin recently received a full-season order from The CW and it's definitely due, at least in part, to the new telenovela-inspired series' perfect narrator. I mean, this isn't the first time I've dreamt about having my life narrated, but now all I want is for Jane's narrator to do voiceovers every time someone dies from being impaled by an ice sculpture in my life. OK, that doesn't happen very often, but you get it. So, who is Jane The Virgin 's narrator Anthony Mendez?
Other than being a totally cool guy who actually answered my inquiry about him narrating my life IRL, Mendez has lent his voice to Showtime, CNN, and a variety of feature films for their promos. But, while he's had a pretty busy and successful career, you might not recognize his voice in these other ventures after hearing him talk about Jane and Rafael's relationship on Jane The Virgin. Because his voice is unrecognizable in these clips, which is obviously the mark of a great voiceover artist (and is also why I'm so stoked that he actually responded to my tweet asking if he'd be interested in following me around and acting as the voice inside my head).
So, where have you heard Anthony Mendez's vocal stylings and who is Jane The Virgin's awesome narrator?
