I say: “Hey man, we’re going up north. Wanna come?”
Then the other actor says some weird stuff in a British accent about wanting to enlist the help of wizards and stuff.
Then I say: “Uh… They can come too.. I guess.”
I, of course, will never hear the ad because I only listen to CBC, geek that I am.
It records next week. I’ll let you know more when it’s done. Suffice to say, I’ll be playing a teen type. Yep, when you need a Scotsman or a Teen, I’m your man. Said the 32 year-old Jew.

I’m the guy who says: “Hey there, little guy” to the vicious raccoon. And then the raccoon eats my face. But don’t worry, I wasn’t hurt. It’s “Theatre of the Mind,” as us professional radio actors like to say.
In another spot in the campaign, I’m in the woods at night and I say: “Who’s there?” with a touch of fear. Not enough fear to scare the listener, but enough to add drama and humour to the spot. It’s a delicate balancing act, which is why they needed a truly great actor such as myself.
That’s me saying “A Big Mac, please!” It’s a short line, but I say it with passion and conviction. Never in the history of acting has anyone asked for a Big Mac like I ask for a Big Mac in this radio spot.
I just found out I got a part as a Scottish guy on an episode of an upcoming kid’s show on NBC called “Time Warp Trio.” Show starts airing in July. How exciting is that? Yes, I’m huge with the 6-11 year old demographic.

And hopefully one day soon my name will be up on this site with these esteemed tween actors:
I just stumbled across this “blogger” site when I was googling to see if anything was written about the Hubba Bubba Max commercial that features my voice. Someone had mentioned the gum in their blog. Not my commercial. Just the blog. Still, undetered, and uncertain how to spell undeterred, I decided to start my own blog. Because I’m vain. And a procrastinator. I’m a vaincrastinator. Though it probably doesn’t matter what I write in this thing. Most likely the only person that will ever discover this blog is someone googling “Josh Rachlis” to find me because I owe them money. In which case: “You have the wrong Josh Rachlis.”
