I already have the actor's voice recording with the video and had rather not have to do a an ADR session if I can avoid it. Also what settings could I use to take a little bit of room echo out of the voice? It's not terrible as-is, but would be better if I could dry it up a bit.

I am by no means an expert and I don't normally use After Effects for sound, but this might help you get started.

For the phone effect you want to create an EQ filter so only 400-1k is coming out. Narrowing the bands even more will heighten the effect. Parametric EQ is the effect but I don't know how it works in AE.

For the room echo add the reverb effect and play with the wet/dry controls. You may have some success going to a negative reverb as well.

Hope that helps,
Clay

As you probably have learned, AE really isn't the program you want to use to create audio effects. If you don't have Audition(which has a pre-built telephone eq), you could download Soundforge's Audacity and then follow this tutorial for creating telephone-like audio.
