After a flourishing career in the voice-over industry spanning over 12 years, Edmonton-born Trevor Devall has returned to the on-camera world with the lead villain role in “Big Time Movie”. The film, an anticipated spin-off from Nickelodeon’s hit series, “Big Time Rush”, is currently airing on Nickelodeon. The award-winning Canadian actor plays Sir Atticus Moon, a multi-billionaire James-Bond-style villain (right down to the white suit and lap-cat) with an evil plan to rule the world. The film was shot in Vancouver and executive produced by BTR’s show creator Scott Fellows.
“Big Time Movie” was inspired by the Fab Four and will feature covers of Beatles songs, including “Help!”, “A Hard Day’s Night”, “We Can Work It Out” and “Revolution”. In the film, the Big Time Rush boys (Kendall, James, Carlos, and Logan—four hockey players from Minnesota selected to form a boy band) depart for London for a concert but end up having to team up with spies to save the world. When their bags get switched at the airport, hilarity ensues. “It’s a Nickelodeon take on James Bond meets Austin Powers, featuring covers of classic Beatles songs that both kids and their parents can enjoy,” says Nickelodeon’s President of Original Programming and Development, Marjorie Cohn.
A native of Edmonton, Alberta, Trevor Devall is a prolific voice artist, having performed in hundreds of animated productions including television movies, series, feature films and video games.
