Endlessly inventive and versatile, voice actor Buddy Woodward has two traits directors love: he’s reliable and pliable. Woodward’s take-no-prisoners approach, in combination with his strict no-ego policy in the booth, have made hi a first-call favorite with virtually every producer and director who’s hired him.

Buddy’s palette of voices and ethnicities is vast, but his ear for timbre and pitch comes as no surprise: he’s a gifted musician too. A consummate professional, Buddy narrated an HDTV nature documentary for Cablevision’s VOOM and has guest-starred in Pokémon. His starring role in the U.S. version of hit Japanese show Ping-Ping Club gained him well-deserved praise for his comic timing and improvisational finesse.

Below are selected television and film appearances. Buddy’s reel contains excerpts from these and many other recordings, including an impressive mokumentary on The People’s Temple cult, in which Buddy portrays over 12 distinct characters — both male and female.
