Guest TV Roles[none found]
James Arnold Taylor loves voice-over. "It has been a dream of mine since childhood to do voice work for movies, television, radio, video games, whatever!" and now James' dream is quite a reality. Because of his versatile vocal range, he has had a successful career in every facet of the Voice-Over Industry. With lead roles in animated films such as the much anticipated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as Leonardo, The Animatrix co-starring with Carrie Anne Moss, and the Disney film Atlantis: Milo's Return taking over for Michael J. Fox in the title role. Currently James has several shows on TV: he's Johnny on the WB's Johnny Test, Axel in A.T.O.M. on Toon Disney, Wooldoor Sockbat on Comedy Central's hit Drawn Together and most notably Obi-Wan Kenobi in Cartoon Networks, Star Wars: Clone Wars. James keeps busy from his home studio with regular promo work for Fox, Spike, G4, and Game Show Network. On the Video Game front, James has been in over 50 recent titles, he's Tidus in the Final Fantasy X series, Ratchet in the Ratchet & Clank series, Gabe in the Syphon Filter series, and numerous voices in games like Shrek, Spiderman, X-Men, and Lord of the Rings to name a few. A unique aspect of James' work is Voice-Doubling. When big time celebrities aren't available to do their own voice, James steps in to seamlessly fill in: from David Spade and Michael J. Fox to Billy Bob Thornton and Christopher Walken. Currently James has been busy as Captain Jack Sparrow and Willy Wonka for Johnny Depp. James' greatest honor has been becoming the new voice of Fred Flintstone for recent cartoons and commercials. "I'm rarely using my own voice, but that's what's so cool about VO. You can be anyone your voice can produce."
James is represented by ICM, Los Angeles (310.550.4304) and Jason Marks Talent Management, New York (212.333.8607).
