William Lewis[1] Salyers (also known as Bill Salyers)[2] (born August 16, 1964)[3] is a voice actor for Regular Show, voicing Rigby.

Early life

William Lewis Salyers was born in Bartlesville[3] and grew up in Pawhuska, Oklahoma[1] and graduated from Pawhuska High School in 1982.[1] He then attended college at Central State University, majoring in Communications.[4] He would then attend and eventually graduate from College of Santa Fe in 1987, majoring in Theatre.[1] He would play his first voice over role as Reverend Putty on the Adult Swim show Morel Orel.[5]

Career

After Morel Orel ended, he auditioned to play the role of Rigby on a new project entitled Regular Show, even booking the gig himself.[6] He described the original audition like this: "I didn't know anyone connected to the project. I wasn't even sure what the copy meant, to tell you the truth: 'Two ties! You don't know what I'm throwin' NEXT, baby!' I mean, what the hell does THAT mean? Devoid of context, I didn't know if the line referred to neck ties, railroad ties, or light S & M. The character seemed brash, though, a little goofy and wreckless [sic], so that's the energy I went with. I got called back and read for J.G. [Quintel] and some other important folks, then booked the Cartoonstitute pilot, which was released on YouTube. A LONG time passed, and by the time the call came, I had written it off. SO glad they went with me."[6]

When the pilot was greenlit to be a series, he had to do a final audition to be the character in the show. He was asked in an interview if hamboning ever truly saved his life, and Salyers replied it did at the audition: "Well, in a manner of speaking, yes. The episode you’re referring to was the script that J.G. [Quintel] and the casting director had me read when I was called backed [sic] to my final audition for the part of Rigby. I got so caught up in the scene, I actually started slapping my chest like I was hamboning. That was completely stupid, because you’re never supposed to make extraneous noises in voiceover; they add stuff like that later, with SFX. My enthusiasm must have counted for something, though, because I got the role, and since it’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me, you could say that hamboning saved my life."[5]

Salyers states his character's fatal flaw is sensitivity. "Rigby's greatest flaw is his sensitvity. He seems brash, but that's only because he gets hurt so easily."[6] Salyers has stated if he chose one episode as his favorite, it would be "Eggscellent".[7] When an interviewer told him he found a movie he was a part of on a wiki, Salyers sharply replied, "I have a wiki?"[5]

Outside of Regular Show he has also voice acted in Call of Duty: World at War and in Mass Effect 3 as Mordin Solus.[8]
