I think he should be the next new voice actor of Lincoln Loud from The Loud House, when Lincoln ages little more in the series.

Happy (Belated) Birthday Billy West!

My top 10 favourite roles of his are:

1.) Phillip J. Fry (Futurama)
2.) Professor Hubert J. Farnsworth (Futurama)
3.) Dr. John Zoidberg (Futurama)
4.) Zapp Brannigan (Futurama)
5.) Richard Nixon's Head (Futurama)
6.) Woody Woodpecker (The New Woody Woodpecker Show)
7.) Wally Walrus (The New Woody Woodpecker Show)
8.) Red (M&M's)
9.) Skeets (Justice League Unlimited)
10.) Sam Melvick (The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius)

You know I could have legitimately just put all of his Futurama roles in my top 10 list. :P

Still that just shows how talented and versatile Billy is as a VA especially when most of his Futurama roles don't even come close to sounding like each other.

The fact he can instantly switch his characters in a conversation with each other, that's pretty incredible.

It was also cool hearing him in the Samurai Jack episode, "Chicken Jack". It's a shame that's the only episode he voiced in but it was still cool hearing him in it nonetheless.

Definitely one of the voice acting greats!
Of course his performances as Fry, Zoidberg, and Professor Farnsworth on "Futurama" are entertaining. I also really enjoy his performances as Bashful from "The 7D" and The Red M&M, as well as his roles in which he has served as the replacement voice for Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd, and Shaggy Rogers.

Happy Birthday, Billy West! :)

Wow, 64 years old, nothing at all can get in the way of him voicing fairly iconic characters of his. Happy Birthday, and we hope for more Futurama to arrive in the near future, maybe even a Futurama Movie.

Happy Birthday Billy West!

He is easily one of the all time best. His work on Futurama is some of the best voice work ever. I mean not only is his the main lead Phillip J. Fry but he's also Professor Farnsworth and Dr. Zoidberg, and even know that I know he did the voices of all three of them, they still don't sound anything like each other, I think that's incredible, plus he's hilarious as all three of them,

I mean that's not just the only characters he's done on the show, he was also Zapp Brannigan (doing a really great impression to homage the late and great Phil Hartman), Richard Nixon's Head, Smitty, Leo Wong, Judge Ron Whitey and Lars Filmore.

He's also a really great Elmer Fudd and a solid Bugs Bunny too. I also like his performances as Woody Woodpecker, Wally Walrus, Red M&M, Skeets, Monkey King, Kraab and Rocket Raccoon.

I can get his point about hiring Celebrities over professionals, there are exceptions but quite often they feel like they just tacked on a big name to make the film more noticable

@HienFan Yeah; they only do professional voice actors as the stars if the movie is based off of a long-running TV show (like 'The Simpsons') and only then are the voices even close to being big names.

Definitely one of the best in the VO industry.

Fry, Farnsworth and Zoidberg are of course some of my favorite roles of his.

First time I think I heard Billy's voice was Space Jam (still a great movie even today!) :D

Bill West does a great job providing the voice of the Honey Nut Cheerios bee, Ren and Stimpy, Bugs Bunny, and Woody Woodpecker.

Happy Birthday, Billy.
