This is mainly for x_erikah_x
and for everyone else who would be interested in seeing Vic Mignogna in many different roles, some bits and pieces he played in movies, but especially all kind of funny video clips he posted himself. Some real gems in there! I won't embedd the videos, as the post would take too long to load. Just click on whichever link you like! I'm putting the time running at the end, most are only a couple of minutes.
I'll add more to the list when I find more so keep checking back!
The first two are hilarious. Watch them, and then tell me - how long did it take for you to notice what's up? Seriously! Vic's apology for not being able to come to Metrocon:
2006 Part 1: Metrocon apology 1
2007 Part 2 (one year later): Metrocon apology 2
Are you a fan of Lord of the Rings? Then you have to watch this clip. It's called "Todd of the Rings" and is a parody, but still so well done and faithful to the original. Vic is Frodo, and if you thought he only can play Shatner playing Kirk, then you are wrong. I love how different he is in this, so small and cute. I've also seen behind-the-scenes - the campfire scene was done entirely on green screen. Amazing. The scenes in the Hobbit village were done on original location in New Zealand! This was part of a contest with Todd, where each of them would do dedication videos about the other. Highly recommended!
2012: Todd of the Rings
I searched and found some other movie clips. This one is called "Holly's Story" and about a teenager who gets pregnant and then gets an abortion, but has trouble to deal with it afterwards. Here's the clip where she is telling her parents - Vic is the Dad, and again I am marvelling how "real" he is with his emotions. I am serious, this guy needs some roles in some real movies or series!
2004: Clip from "Holly's Story" - talk with parents
2004 Clip 2 from "Holly's Story" - In the clinic
The whole movie can be watched here, it's in English but with Dutch subtitles. Vic's scenes start at 00:30 (scene in the kitchen), 10:10 (scene from clip 1 above), 15:50 (scene from clip 2 above) and 30:05 (Holly comes home late in the evening and gets a dressing down from her parents). That's it.
2004: Holly's Story - whole movie
He was also in a 20 minutes short movie which I haven't been able to find in full yet. If you know anything about how or where to get this, please let me know! It's called "Singularity" and is about a guy inventing a computer intelligence. Vic is a nerd, right with glasses and everything, and again so different. Watch the trailer and then tell me you don't want to see the whole thing!
2012: Trailer Singularity
While we are on the topic of short movies, there will be another one which is still in development - or as a series even. It's called "R.U.R. Genesis" and has aside of Vic some other familiar faces - Chase Masterson and Kipley Brown for example. Director is James Kerwin who also directed two "Star Trek Continues" episodes. I love how they all know each other and work on each other projects! I'm not quite clear what it is exactly about, but the trailer is very atmospheric. Watch it if you want to see Vic as a bad buy (weapon's dealer or something?) - speaking French!!! He appears around 1:59 if you cannot wait.
2013: Trailer R.U.R. Genesis
There are two more projects in the pipeline which are supposed to come out this year according to IMDB - yay! I'm always happy to see him and not only hear his voice over an animation!
One is called "Broken Spirits"
- here's the official description: "Four young people are pulled into an alternate dimension through a portal in a sweat lodge. On the other side four murderous spirits of centuries-old gold hunters await to steal the young peoples' bodies and return to the living world."
No trailer yet, but there is a nice video with interviews where the actors talk about their biggest fears and what truly scares them and it is nice to see them so open about it:
2011: Behind the scenes Episode 1: Fears
Not sure about the other one, if it is a TV movie or a series even, I thought I read somewhere something about the British TV? It's an independent production though. On FB they call it "Sci-fi thriller". No plot description yet but lots of names attached. Check them out at IMDB. The name is "Humber City: The Rising Tide"
. No trailer yet, just several videos with the different actor's talking about their roles. Here's the one with Vic:Humber City: The Cast Speak... #9 - Vic Mignogna
I'm following all those productions on Facebook to keep up with any news. Seeing for how long they are in development already, such things take time apparently!
Any Firefly fans among us? He was also in a Firefly fanfilm. Vic appears at 8:40.
2014: Firefly Fanfilm: The Verse
Finally, here's how it all started - Vic as a child, having sewn his own Star Trek uniforms on his mother's sewing machine, and having built his own props, and then shooting small Star Trek videos with friends. It's called "Vic's Vintage Voyages". I don't know which one is the one he showed us on Fedcon and pointed out how he was doing up his zipper in one scene LOLVics Vintage Voyages 1
0:42Vics Vintage Voyages 2
0:59Vics Vintage Voyages 3
2:40Vics Vintage Voyages 4
3:16Vics Vintage Voyages 5
And if Vic didn't have enough talents already with producing, directing, writing, editing, sound designing, composing and playing the piano, he also played soccer in college. Here he is with Brit, who apparently is a world class goal keeper, and Vic is shooting. You can see him and his muscly legs in short pants and Italian soccer shirt. I love how he is always excited when he scores. Really cute ;)
2009: Soccer showdown 2009
2009: Soccer showdown II
The rematch six years later:
2014: Soccer Showdown 2014
While we're in the sports section - here he is singing the "Star spangled banner" at Houston Dynamo vs. Colorado Rapids on May 10, 2008
2008: Vic singing the Star spangled banner
And if you want to see Vic as he is, pure, without any acting, watch the "Lindbeck & Lee" episodes. Absolutely hilarious. He plays with action figures, he spontanously sings, he's doing all kind of funny stuff and looking so cute and like a little boy there it's hard to believe that he is over 50. I also more than once thought "this could have been John Barrowman as well". Apparently I do have a type ;)
My favorites are:
2015: Episode 3: The Love list
2015: The Easy Bake Oven episode part 1
2015: The Easy Bake Oven episode part 2
And just for convenience the rest of the links:
2015: Episode 2: Love, Tea and Tears (The ending is so cute!)
2015: Episode 5: The Smashround Interview (very funny!)
2015: Episode 6: The big interview (serious for a change)
2015: Promo: Vic gets lucky
And now a few I've posted before but it's worth having in here as well: Vic singing a love duet with Michael Rosenbaum (Lex Luthor from Smallville). Vic is Diana Ross. 'nough said:
2014: Vic and Michael sing Endless Love
Vic and Todd Haberkorn having a swimming race like their characters in the animé series "Free". Whom of them will win? Is that a serious question? I never had any doubt!
2016: Swimming Race
And a look into the past - if he only had known back then what he would achieve one day!
1986: College Trek - Vic is Kirk (what else?)
