Have you ever heard of Tracy W. Bush?
If you're a Booster Gold fan, you've probably heard him, if not of him. Bush was the original voice of Booster Gold in Sony Online Entertainment's DC Universe Online. (Booster's lines have since been re-dubbed since Bush left the company.)
It's worth keeping track of Bush's work. After leaving SOE, he caught on at 5th Cell Media, the company behind the Scribblenauts franchise. Bush was credited as both a writer, audio director, and sound designer for Scribblenauts Unmasked. (He's even a character in the game!)
This means that Tracy W. Bush has played a vital role in crafting two of the three video games prominently featuring an animated Booster Gold!
If we want to see in what video game Booster will turn up next, maybe we should keep an eye on Tracy W. Bush.

Regular players of Sony's DC Universe Online have probably noticed that something has changed about the game's version of Booster Gold. Specifically, Booster has a new voice.
Earlier this month, Sony surprised gamers by replacing the audio files for Booster Gold, previously voiced by Tracy W. Bush. This led to some hand-wringing by many who wondered at the motivation for the change. DCUO Creative Director Jens Andersen responded to these questions in the message boards at forums.station.sony.com:
The reason for the Booster change was simply because Calculator and Booster are very common on the villain side, and in fact they can often play back to back while leveling. The fact that they are played by the same actor was a bit of a problem. We wanted to keep Calculator as is because it's a lot of [voice over] and we will use him consistently in the future. With Booster coming in to the PvP DLC we saw the opportunity to recast the voice and not have the same guy talking over himself all the time.
The PvP DLC -- that's "Player versus Player Downloadable Content" for those of you who don't speak video game shorthand -- that Anderson references is The Last Laugh, and it hits the market today. I can't attest to how much Booster Gold content will be in the game, but eagle-eyed viewers will spot Booster at about the 36-second mark of the teaser trailer below.
DC Universe Online is free to play (and includes plenty of opportunity to interact with Booster Gold), but The Last Laugh DLC will set you back about $10.

Those of you who have played DC Universe Online are already very familiar with this, but I thought the rest of you deserved to hear the voice of Gold.
That's Tracy W. Bush -- only the
second third person to give official voice to Booster Gold after Tom Everett Scott and David Coyne (see comments below for details) -- as Booster Gold from one of the many, many Booster Gold kiosks littered throughout Metropolis and Gotham City. This sample is only the tip of the iceberg; Booster is much more verbose and far funnier in most of his DC Universe Online sound bites.
Note: if you cannot see the audio player, you do not have Adobe Flash Player installed in your browser.
