I'm Monty Whittaker's greatest fan. member of the K.R.E
But I looked it up and the actor playing Wilson was born in 1961, making him 55. This also makes him considerably younger than Hal Smith , Paul Herlinger , and Alan young . Also , probably a few years younger than Andre Stojka .
Of course , Odyssey is in a time all it's own . Connie was 16 and in high school over a decade . Whit and Jack originally should be in their 90's . Whit was in WWII . Jack retired in 2012. And now Wilson is just beginning a new career ? And He is Whit's brother in law , but Connie has neither met or heard from him again ? I do hope we hear from Charlotte , she is Whits step sister . But we just had one reference to her in family Portraits , and it seemed that was tossed out with a lot of other stuff when AIO started . Then we heard young Charlotte in the Journals of the Young Whit . But we have never heard from her on the show otherwise , or heard her as an adult . Hopefully we will one day .
I did enjoy it . And it was a good episode . I just have a few questions .,
Actor ages mean nothing in voice acting business... Several of the kids in Odyssey are voiced by adults now, and Andre Stojka is younger then the actor who plays Jason.
As for him starting a new job at his age, Wilson said he had been a traveling missionary for years, and now had become a pastor. I would assume he's retiring (mostly) as a missionary, and settling down to become a pastor. Even if he is old, i don't see it as unreasonable.
We all know how corrupt Whit is... I assume he heard his brother-in-law wanted to settle down and become a pastor, so Whit got rid of the old pastor and basically just hired this new guy (who just happens to be a relative :0). #headcanon
The "Ave" reference was so obvious. It came across my mind Jack would be there too, but the name "Al" went over my head. I thought this was Whit's direct brother because Wilson said something like "I annoyed my older brother by being a stuck-in-the-mud." Turns out I heard that wrong or something, but Wilson actually was his brother. =p Since it was Chicago, I was afraid the old friend was Richard Maxwell, but thankfully that didn't happen.
72. But I have seen at least two different birth years for him
Wikipedia - 1935 (81)
IMDb - 1944 (72)
Both Wikipedia and IMDB say Townsend Coleman was born in 1954, and His facebook says he graduated from high school in 1972, so that would make that correct .
One thing I didn't mention in the video is that I'm glad they used the same actor (Aden Schwartz) who played Young Whit in the Journal of John Avery Whittaker. Although I didn't know that at the time, I think that was one of the factors that helped guess that Al was actually Whit.
