Dee Bradley Baker is one of the most versatile and sought-after A-list voice actors working today. His voice is seemingly everywhere, featured in literally hundreds of television shows, movies, and top video games. Over the past two decades, Dee has earned an extraordinary reputation among show creators and fans alike with his chameleon-like acting skills and his wide range of realistic creature sounds, from tiny birds and insects to gigantic monsters.
Dee is currently featured on Fox’s Emmy-nominated series “American Dad” (Klaus the goldfish), as well as on Nickelodeon’s “Avatar: The Legend of Korra” (Tarrlok, Pabu, and Nala), “SpongeBob Squarepants” (Squilliam, etc.), Cartoon Network’s hit series “Ben 10: Alien Force” (the super aliens), and “Adventure Time” (Cinnamon Bun, etc.).
Dee appears regularly on many Disney Television cartoons. He currently voices Perry the Platypus in the mega-hit series “Phineas and Ferb,” and appears on “The Mickey Mouse Clubhouse,” “Gravity Falls,” and “Jake and the Neverland Pirates.” In addition, his creature vocals are featured in two upcoming “Tinkerbell” movies.
Fans of the Walt Disney theme parks may be surprised to learn that Dee voices the parrot on the “Pirates of the Caribbean” ride and Boba Fett for the newly retooled “Star Tours 3D” attraction.
Perhaps the standout showcase of Dee’s impressive acting ability is his portrayal of Captain Rex and an entire army of clone soldiers in Lucas Animation’s Annie-nominated “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” series. He is able to maintain subtly distinct personalities among the clone troops, sometimes sustaining entire episodes almost completely solo. This has earned Dee “Annie Award” nominations for Best Voice Actor two years in a row.
Other notable television credits include: “Cow and Chicken,” “Codename: Kids Next Door,” “Teen Titans,” and “Batman: Brave and the Bold.” Fans of Nickelodeon’s classic 90’s game show “Legends of the Hidden Temple” are thrilled to learn that Dee voiced the rock god Olmec.
Dee has worked with many of Hollywood’s top feature film directors, including Gore Verbinski on “Pirates of the Caribbean” (the parrot), Zach Schneider on “Dawn of the Dead” (zombies), Ivan Reitman on “Space Jam” (Daffy Duck and Tasmanian Devil) and George Miller on “Happy Feet” (Maurice). He also provided the vampire sounds for the recent remake of “Fright Night.”
The video game world knows Dee’s work quite well. He is featured in many of this year’s top video games including “Batman: Arkham City” (Ras al Ghul), “Portal 2” (the co-op bots), and all sorts of creatures in “World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria,” “Diablo 3,” “Left 4 Dead 2,” “Gears of War” series and “Halo” 2 and 3.
