If you see a guy with the username "dmnkly" skulking around, it's probably Dominic Armato, (better known as) the voice of Guybrush Threepwood!

If you've got any questions for Dom or just want to say hello, drop 'em here!

Dom answers! Let's take a look...

I don't know when this will end, but that's a lot of answered questions so far! Check those to see if your question has already been answered!

  • Welcome! Glad to have you back Dominic!
  • Not as glad as I am to be back, Nojh :-)

    (Thank you!)
  • Dominic, godspeed with your monkey island quest. Looking forward to your hilarious dry deliverance of guybrush's quirky character.
  • I'm was very happy to learn that you will be doing Guybrush's voice again, Dominic! What's the best (out of context) line you've had to do for TMI so far?
  • Hey Dom, I've got a few questions for you as well:

    What exactly started your "return to Monkey Island"? Was it the special edition of the first game, or the new Telltale series? Which call came first?

    Or: Were the two projects linked in any way? (I guess this question goes to Telltale as well)

    How long did it take you to get back into "Guybrush-mode"?

    Are you voicing any other character in either the MI1-SE or the "Tales of Monkey Island"-series? Judging by your old demo-tape it wouldn't surprise me if you did.
  • This is pretty awesome. When I first read "full voiceovers" for the remake, I was skeptical since those lines were written to be read rather than heard, but seeing the short clip on the remake's website, it seems like you're making them sound exactly like they sound in my head, which is awesome.

    What's your username mean? "Demon Kelly?" Ominous! I like that your custom title is "Dominic Armato," though. That keeps things unambiguous :D

    I might come up with some relevant questions once I'm doing being giddy. Which may take a while.
  • Hi Dominic - I'm mondo stoked that you're back as Guybrush! Your voice acting is one of the magical ingredients that makes Monkey Island, be it "I don't want to pop the fun balloons", "Not porcelain!", or "We’ll surely avoid scurvy if we all eat an orange…".
    How do you feel about the return of MI in era post-a certain movie that rhymes with Schmirates of the Schmarribean? Did this have any impact on how you played Guybrush this time around? Other than that, how have you approached acting as Guybrush - same old mighty pirate we all love or any new twists?
  • Did you accept this job to earn money for developing an overwhelmingly expensive, but tastier version of Simulac for the kid?
  • How was (is?) it to go straight from voicing Guybrush in the first game to the fifth(!!!!)? Disorienting?
  • I would just like to say that because the original voice acting was back, I had to jump all over the pre-order as soon as I learned about it.

    I've been a Monkey Island fan for 19 years, and I remember watching the trailer for Curse early in '97 and fearing that the voice wouldn't fit for the character.... As soon as it panned to the bumper car with Guybrush and I heard "Captain's Log, Guybrush Threepwood" I knew the right guy had been chosen for the job.

    Welcome back Dom! Anything Monkey Island related would never had been even remotely the same without you.

    I am thoroughly looking forward to this new series, and especially going through Secret with the right talent for the voice work. Let's hope LeChuck's Revenge gets a similar treatment, and we can have the whole series "full talkie" as it should be :)
