Michael York joins cast of ‘Flatland’

Michael York is our latest stellar addition to the cast of Flatland. He will be the voice of Spherius, a wise being from another dimension who comes to help Arthur Square (Martin Sheen) and his fellow Flatlanders understand the existence of a third dimension.

You might know Michael York from films such as Logan’s Run, Austin Powers, and The Omega Code. You’ve heard his voice on The Simpsons and Family Guy.

I got to direct Michael in St. Paul, Minnesota while he was there on his stage tour of Camelot. He’s such a talented and dedicated actor, and a very gracious person as well. His voice sounds wonderful on the soundtrack and is just the perfect combination of authority, compassion, and other-worldliness for his character.
