Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

If you watched cartoons starting in the late '90s, you likely heard the dulcet tones of Phil LaMarr, who took his improv background and Yale University schooling to become one of the most respected, dependable, and unique voice actors around. His first voice acting role came on the short-lived "Mister T" (NBC 1983-85) when he was just 16 years old, but that early taste of acting didn't dissuade LaMarr from attending Yale, where he became a part of the Purple Crayon improv group. Following his graduation in 1989, he picked up small roles, both live and voice, in TV shows, movies, and video games. One of his first notable roles during this era was in "Pulp Fiction" (1994), Quentin Tarantino's cult classic; LaMarr played the young man whose unexpected fate leads to the introduction of Harvey Keitel's Mr. Wolf. Shortly after, he joined the cast of "MADtv" (Fox 1995-2009) in its inaugural year, and stayed on the cast until 2000, while also appearing in occasional films like the science fiction fandom comedy "Free Enterprise" (1998). After leaving "MADtv," he focused primarily on voice acting, with multiple roles on "Futurama" (FOX 1999-2003 Comedy Central 2008-2013), "Justice League/Justice League...

His voice acting resume during that time period was impeccable, with many appearances on a variety of cartoons. And when he worked on a show, he usually voiced numerous, distinct voices. LaMarr also got more involved in the world of video games as well. He regularly reprised his voice-acting roles and also contributed to the "Metal Gear Solid" game series as the villain Vamp. He also lent his voice to the "Final Fantasy," "Kingdom Hearts," and "Mass Effect" series.
