Neil Gaiman sounds exactly like my uncle Patrick, and nobody else in the world does, so it weirds me out to hear his voice every time.

Yes, that’s Buffy alum Amber Benson on the left. Both are attached to Blood Kiss, a vampire-noir from director Michael Reaves, who has written for such neo-noir animated shows as Gargoyles and Batman: The Animated Series.
But it’s a Kickstarter project. One very close to the minimum as of this writing. And Gaiman has pledged that he will only act for Michael, and not in anything else.
