Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Todd Susman has rarely been in the spotlight, but he has made a career of acting despite a lack of leading roles. Appearing in well over 100 titles since his first gig in 1970, Susman may be most easily recognized by his voice: he served as the P.A. announcer on the influential war comedy "M*A*S*H," a job he split with Sal Viscuso. In the mid-'70s, Susman had a recurring role on Bob Crane's eponymous short-lived show, as well as a co-starring role on a failed adventure series, "Spencer's Pilots," which lasted a mere six episodes in 1976. Despite good reviews, "Star of the Family"--another series on which Susman held a co-starring role, as a quirky firefighter--was quickly canceled as well. His longest tenure on a show (besides "M*A*S*H") came as Officer Shifflett on Bob Newhart's aptly named sitcom, "Newhart," from 1984 to 1989. Susman followed this with yet another co-starring turn on a doomed series, this time in the Paul Haggis comedy "City." After several guest spots throughout the early 1990s, he was cast in a small role in the legal thriller "The Juror" in 1996. As video games continued to evolve and require increasingly complex storylines, Susman began doing voice-over work for them in the...
