D.C. also works as a voice over performer in television and radio commercials as well as voice-matching celebrities like Val Kilmer and Kevin Spacey. He was part of the first wave of "internet age" voice over artists at the beginning of the 21st century who built and worked from home studios.

Recent voice over credits include The Master in the "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" video game, Albert Wesker in "Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles", "Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles", "Resident Evil 5" and "Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds, Raven in Tekken 6, AWACS Ghost Eye in "Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation", Commandant Alexei in Tales of Vesperia, Legion in Mass Effect 2, Grimoire Noir in Nier, as well as several national campaigns (including the GEICO "Celebrity" campaign from 2006–2008, the McDonald's "Be The Sizzle" campaign from 2009–2010, and Radio Shack's "Holiday Hero" campaign in 2010).

In April, 2010, Douglas came under fire from the Tea Party movement for a phone call he made to Freedomworks in which he left an inflammatory voice mail. A day later GEICO dropped him from the new "shocking news" series of internet commercials that were in post-production. This led to some debate in the voice over community about whether announcers were public figures. Douglas responded by producing a mock Tea Party PSA for YouTube that was subsequently broadcast on Joy Behar's HLN show with Douglas as a guest.
In addition to his commercial and video game voice over work, he also does many voice overs for the non-profit progressive research and information center Media Matters for America.
