"I would LOVE to see Ricardo Irving in this movie! Allan Groves did an incredible job bringing depth and a memorable quality to this character and I know that there are many others besides me who would be fascinated to know the story of this mysterious “businessman with standards”, so PLEASE, bring Irving to the big screen!!"

Allan is proud to be one of the new bad guys in Resident Evil 5- Ricardo Irving! He finished motion capture, facial capture, and voice over last year and the game is already getting amazing reviews!!! Rated a 9.4 on gametrailers.com this game was released March 2009. Allan is extremely excited about the great reviews this new character has been getting and thanks all the RE 5 fans who have posted their thoughts.

  5. Hello there Allan. I've just seen the latest RE5 trailer with more footage of your character and the mysterious woman. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ynELsF-W5sk&feature=channel_page I have to say I'm very impressed with how the game is shaping up, and it certainly looks like you're going to become one of the more interesting villains in this series based on what we've seen so far. So congrads on your impact into the Resident Evil saga. I'll keep a watch out for Irving.

  6. I've never heard of you until RE5. But wow, you look just like your character Irving! And the voice acting that I've heard from various trailers is amazing. I'm excited to see how the rest of your performance turns out. Best of luck!

  7. Allan I'm really excited for the new game and seeing you in action as a villain.

  8. Allan, man, you're one of the best villains I've seen in the entire RE series - Although you got that annoying little voice which made my ears bleed, I still LOVED it! Hope to see you in other motion-capture work! Good luck and best of wishes

  9. "I JUST GOT AN EXTREME MAKEOVER!" Definitely the highlight of the game. My friends and not only laughed so hard that we lost battle succeeding that line, but we've been repeating it over and over for a week. Good work my friend, you really brought life to that character, making him without a doubt one of my favorite Resident Evil characters yet.

    — Donovan MacTaggart Fri, 20 Mar 2009

  10. Allan, I just wanted to say, I really like your voice acting. Irving is now one of my favorite Resident Evil characters, and I really like how you made him sound. Keep up the good work man. I really hope they put you as one of the new main characters for Resident Evil 6.

    — Jacob K Sat, 21 Mar 2009

  11. You.. look like Irving! o.O I wonder if Capcom modeled him after you? Anyway, just wanted to say that I loved Irving's voice and the way he speaks. Nice job! :D

  14. Freakin love your voice. I've actually been replaying the game specifically because I love how you portray Ricardo Irving. You give him so much life, I really wish he had a bigger part in the game. Also he's pretty damn hard to draw as well. But all around, you're awesome!
