Doug is best known for his character The Nostalgia Critic, who reviews bad movies and TV shows connected to childhood. He's also noted for having a long standing "rivalry" with The Angry Video Game Nerd.  He's appeared on PBS, Entrepreneur Magazine, New York Times, 20/20, Rifftrax, Honest Trailers, Cinema Sins, and was awarded Entrepreneur of the Year at the Mashable Awards as well as one of the Best YouTube Critics by WatchMojo.com.  He’s performed with Mike Nelson, James Rolfe, Mara Wilson, Dante Basco, Paul Dini, Andre Meadows, Rob Paulsen, Maurice Lamarche, Don Bluth, and has been praised by the late Roger Ebert.  His image even appeared in the anime Zettai Karen Children.  He’s more than a God, but less than a man…or is it the other way around?  Either way just watch him!  He clearly needs the attention.

 

Malcolm Ray

From telling you about the new McCafe items at McDonald's to tormenting the Nostalgia Critic as Satan, Malcolm Ray is an actor, and voice actor. His skills go beyond acting with professional training in film and video as his major at Columbia College Chicago. In the span of his Bachelor career at Columbia, Malcolm has successfully completed his Interdisciplinary Film Degree, been the casting director for a practicum film, interned at O'Connor Casting, and has begun a professional acting career.

Malcolm is represented as talent at the Stewart Talent agency in Chicago. As a freelance actor, he's appeared alongside Doug Walker in many episodes of "Nostalgia Critic"

 

Tamara Chambers

Tamara Chambers is an actress and comedian from California. She studied Acting at the Pacific Conservatory of the Performing Arts in California but now lives in Chicago where she spends her days hiding from snow. No. Wait. She is a theater and film actress who does stand-up comedy. Yes. Tamara is on the internet show The Nostalgia Critic alongside Doug Walker and is known mostly for her Character “Hyper Fan Girl”. Her favorite things are cats, comedy, and the Fallout franchise. Also microwaved popcorn. And lists.  And movies she’s never seen.
 

Rob Walker

From Santa Christ to the Executor in To Boldly Flee, Rob Walker always plays a big role in the creation of the show Nostalgia Critic.  He co-writes each episode, plays several hilarious characters, and also co-hosts the blog series Sibling Rivalry with his brother Doug.  Always having a quick comeback (except when he doesn't), he's there to entertain.
 

Barney Walker

The creative genius ultimately (or infamously) responsible for the Walker Brothers (after all, he IS their father) Barney is also the chief musician for Doug’s musical adventures and is the Associate Technical Director for the studio, working alongside Jim Jarosz creating props, sets, costumes, cinematography and lighting.  And when Doug needs a geezer in a review, Barney is reluctantly there, as in Pixels, Hocus Pocus, Face-off, Ghostbusters and his favorite (?) role, Bea Arthur in the Star Wars Christmas Special.
