Dec. 1 marks World AIDS Day, a day we can unite in the worldwide fight against HIV and AIDS. In the U.S., an estimated 1.2 million people are living with HIV or AIDS and nearly 10 percent of them call New York City home.

He joins us to talk about his role and how he gets into character in the voiceover booth.
