DeLand actor gives voice to Phineas, hits big screen in "Role Models," continues on "Everybody Hates Chris"

At 16, Vincent Martella of DeLand is one busy actor. He has a sitcom (The CW's "Everybody Hates Chris"), a movie ("Role Models," opening Friday) and an animated series ("Phineas and Ferb").

He supplies the voice of main character Phineas in the show at 8:30 p.m. Fridays on Disney Channel.

"Working with the creators, trying to make them laugh, is incredible," Vincent says.

He especially likes the challenge of expressing through his voice all the emotions that he usually shows with his face and body.

"That's something people find hard to do sometimes," Vincent says. "It's cool to explore it. Other times, I'm getting to sing. It's awesome. I have a pretty good range. Phineas' voice is much different from mine."

Vincent is shooting the second season, which will have 39 episodes. The first season was 26 installments.

"Right out of the gate, it has been our top-rated animated show," says Eric Coleman, senior vice president, development for Walt Disney Television Animation.

"Vincent's performance is fantastic," Coleman adds. "He puts on a great character voice that sounds natural. It helps set the tone for the show. It gives it warmth and a positive sense of humor."

Vincent, a sophomore, describes "Role Models" as having "the laughs of 'Superbad' and 'Knocked Up,' but with family values." He praises co-stars Paul Rudd ("awesome") and Seann William Scott ("sweet and humble").

The teen actor plays Greg on "Everybody Hates Chris," which is in its fourth season at 8 p.m. Fridays. The cast has completed 22 episodes and is waiting to hear if there will be a fifth season.

Whatever happens, Vincent says he is committed to performing.

"I'd really like to stay in the business and entertain," he says. "That's what I like to do whether it's in acting or animation or singing. Whatever comes my way, I enjoy it all so much."

Teen is born to perform!

Teen is born to perform!

Actor Vincent Martella, 15, tries to be a normal teen
Mekeisha Madden Toby / Detroit News Television Writer

LOS ANGELES -- Vincent Martella is one of the hardest working young actors in Hollywood.
He has two jobs. He plays Greg, the sidekick, on The CW's "Everybody Hates Chris" and is the voice of Phineas on Disney Channel's "Phineas and Ferb," and he's only 15.
In other words, the next time you complain about juggling a part-time job, school and chores, think about this guy. But Martella, who will be 16 on Oct. 15, says he makes it work.
"With 'Phineas and Ferb,' I do one episode every other week, so it works out perfectly," Martella told The Detroit News with a shrug after working all day on a recent season-four episode of "Everybody Hates Chris." The latter show, which returns in October, shoots toward the end of the week.
"I work three to four days a week on 'Chris,' so it ends up being pretty easy. It's not bad," Martella says.
To relax, the native of Rochester, N.Y., says he plays music and sports.
"I play the guitar and piano," Martella says. "It really relaxes me, and some of my songs are on iTunes. I play gigs around town (Los Angeles) sometimes ... but just for fun. I enjoy it a lot. And I play basketball."
Martella started dancing at the age of 3, and his first live performance was in "The Nutcracker. He began playing the piano at age 5 and was soon performing in school plays and appearing in local commercials in the Orlando, Fla., area, where his family moved. He started acting and vocal training at age 6, and a year later, he was one of the most sought-after kids in the Central Florida market, appearing in print ads and national commercials.
By the age of 10, Martella was ready for primetime. During his first trip to Hollywood, he landed a guest spot on Fox's short-lived sitcom "Cracking Up" and a recurring role on Nickelodeon's "Ned's Declassified," where he developed his own character named Scoop.
The following summer, Martella nabbed his first film role working alongside Rob Schneider in "Deuce Bigelow: European Gigolo." Martella also guest-starred on the now-defunct Fox comedy "Stacked," starring Pamela Anderson, and lent his voice to the feature film "Bad News Bears." Look for Martella later this year in the comedic film "Role Models," starring Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott.
But family keeps Martella humble and focused. Although he lives in Los Angeles, he still calls Florida home and lives there with his mother, father and three siblings part of the year. "I haven't gone Hollywood," Martella swears. "I still hang out with friends. I'm still a kid."

Chris Rocks Sidekick Martella is a Triple Threat!

Everybody Hates Chris has a child prodigy in the cast—and it’s probably not the youngster you’d guess first. Granted, all the kids on this hit comedy are talented actors, but Vincent Martella has been on the fast-track since he began playing piano at age five. In addition to his role as teen Chris Rock’s best-friend “Greg,” Vincent just wrapped his first full season voicing “Phineas” on Disney’s edgy animated series, Phineas and Ferb, complete with a promotional tour to London. And, who knew?—the kid can sing. Two years ago, at age 13, he released an album of his own original songs, Time Flies By. Since then, he’s performed with his band on weekends at The Grove in L.A. (click below), and several of his Beatles and Billy Joel covers can be viewed online. Vincent recently teamed with Bill Engvall and Billy Ray Cyrus in Bait Shop, debuted Aug 9th on the USA Network, followed in Nov. by his big-screen comedy, Role Models. Despite a busy multifaceted career, Vince has made time to help raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for the Special Olympics, where he serves as a National Youth Ambassador. The fourth season of Everybody Hates Chris will lead off a brand new comedy night—Friday—this fall on WBNX. Chances are, you’ll now see Chris’s witty sidekick in a whole new light.
