He may play Russia in the popular "Hetalia: Axis Powers," but no amount of frozen tundra will prepare voice actor Jerry Jewell for the intense heat waves he will feel from some of his closest friends, as they join together to pay tribute with a Roast.
Jewell will be the Guest of Honor at the annual "Ohayocon Roast," which takes place during the first big animé convention in Ohio for the new year, Ohayocon 2014, later this January. For one night only, Jewell's friends and fellow convention guest attendees, in front of a packed audience, will share funny stories, crack hilarious jokes, and pay tribute to one of the animé industry's most eccentric personalities. Roasters attending will include voice actors J. Michael Tatum, Christopher and Greg Ayers, Brittney Karbowski, and Jerry's best friend, ADR writer and voice actor Justin Cook.
The Jerry Jewell Roast is just one of the main events that take place during the three-day animé & otaku celebration known as Ohayocon. This year's convention will take place the weekend of Jan. 24 at the Hyatt Regency Columbus & Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, OH.
