Why Matthew The
Raven From
Sandman Sounds
So Familiar
Even before he was ruffling feathers as Matthew in "The Sandman," stand-up comedian and actor Patton Oswalt had a hand in lending his voice to a creature that, in reality, is known for not having one. 2007 saw him cook up an outstanding performance in one of the best Pixar movies ever made when he took the lead in "Ratatouille."
Syfy's adaptation of the comic book “Happy” saw Patton Oswalt voice a blue, winged unicorn who partners with short-tempered, excessively violent ex-cop Nick Sax (Christopher Meloni). Helmed by Brian Taylor, "Happy!" was a wild and excessively trippy show that unfortunately was canceled after its sophomore season.
Oswalt voiced the hero-defining mentor Uncle Ben in "Marvel's Spider-Man" in 2017. This take on everyone's friendly neighborhood Spider-Man ran for three seasons before ending in 2020.
Marvel's Spider-Man
Another of Patton Oswalt's trips into Marvel territory required an enormous head. An adaptation that the star himself co-created and wrote for, "M.O.D.O.K." was a short-lived series highlighting the day-to-day life of one of Marvel's most iconic ne'er do wells.
Though only briefly seen in the mid-credits scene for "Eternals," Oswalt gave it his all for his debut appearance as Pip the Troll, even providing motion capture for the CGI character. Although there's no confirmation of when Pip will return, Oswalt has expressed enthusiasm about reprising the role.
