Adult Swim has just sent out a statement revealing that it has dropped its links with Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland, and fans are already looking for a replacement — and this is one that Adult Swim has already noticed.
Is it a big-time Hollywood actor? No. A well-known voice actor? No, it’s Sean Kelly, who does a Morty impression on his TikTok channel.
People on the subreddit r/rickandmorty are understandably surprised by the news, but strangely ready to leave Roiland, especially considering the nature of the charges. SeanKellySays, who currently has two million followers (as of this writing) on the site.
Here's what some people had to say about it:
You can always substitute Morty, but Roiland is also the voice of Rick Sanchez and Mr. Poopybutthole, who both are regulars on the program. However, Kelly is fairly adept at making sounds in general. Take a look at some of his work.
Here's how to do a Morty voice tutorial.
This is a really good impression. This one even includes a surprise Rick at the end. So maybe he can do it?
He can even distinguish early Morty from later Morty.
Commenters have taken the opportunity to state something that Kelly is probably well-aware of: He would make a terrific Morty replacement. Lastly, Adult Swim appears to have taken notice. The channel commented on the above video and said "He understood the assignment."
Kelly's response? "u gotta be jokin me right now..." Well, looks like he has a decent chance of making this happen. We'll keep you updated with any developments.
