Master Chief, the green-armored hero of the Halo series, is one of the most popular gaming characters since the turn of the century, but I never figured that the man behind his voice had a day job.
But Steve Downes, the chief himself, doesn't spend all of his time lending his vocal cords to the famous Spartan. He's also a radio DJ for a classic rock station in Chicago. Jeez, that sounds like two dream jobs. How lucky can one guy get?
Downes talks about his incredible fortune in the video after the jump. You'll also discover what happened when someone asked his wife if she ever calls him Master Chief.
