Randall Ryan

Talent Director & Casting for Games

Randall’s journey into videogame voice casting and directing was an unusual one. A musician from the age of five and a touring performer/songwriter for 15 years, he stopped to co-found InternetSound in 1995. Voiceover was an afterthought until the company started doing work for video games (and subsequently changed the name to HamsterBall Studios). Quite by accident, Randall found he had a knack for directing talent, and soon voiceover became a bigger and bigger part of HamsterBall’s mix.

Randall’s casting and directing video game credits include Lord of the Rings Online, World of Warcraft, Nobunaga’s Ambition: Taishi, Dungeons & Dragons Online, Transformers: Optimus Prime, the Deer Hunter series, Chivalry, World Series of Poker, mobile gaming, children’s games, sports titles, and shooters. Randall and HamsterBall also continue to do advertising and interactive projects.

Randall still performs the occasional live gig and thinks dogs make the best people.
