Maurice LaMarche

Birth Place: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Date Of Birth: Mar 30, 1958
Voice Over Language: English

Trivia & Fun Facts:

Nickname: Moe

Only the third person in history, and the second in the last 50 years, to be the official voice of Popeye.

Known to be a very private man and surprisingly did a rare public performance at the San Diego Comic-Con International Convention in 2002. He and fellow voice actors Rob Paulsen and Jess Harnell did several skits and LaMarche was greeted by thunderous applause when he did his favorite character, The Brain. He returned again for Comic Con 2003 for an encore.

He was formerly a stand-up comedian, but due to  tragedies in his family, decided to call it quits in 1989.

Quotes:

"You can make them laugh, but you can't make them happy" (Attributed to Sam Kinison in Rolling Stone, but was originally said to Kinison by LaMarche).

There was a TV movie when I was a kid called 'The Princess Who Never Laughed' where he made a live appearance.

He was playing a kid of medieval stand-up comic, and he was introduced as 'Mockingbird Maurice.'

It's probably a name that suits his talent as well as any.

Happy Birthday Maurice LaMarche.

I love the work this guy does, he never fails to disappoint. His Orson Welles Impression is one of the greatest celebrity impressions ever, it was a perfect fit for The Brain and it's easily his best performance ever.

Some of his other best impressions include Inspector Gadget, Yosemite Sam, Egon Spengler and Vincent Van Ghoul. Seriously they're very spot on to the people he took over from.

His work on Futurama alone is in a league of his which includes Kif Kroker, Calculon, Morbo, Lrrr, Walt, Donbot, Clamps, Hedonismbot, Hyperchicken Lawyer and the Horrible Gelatinous Blob. Ok yes he reused the same voice for three of these characters but that impressed me..it just worked out that well.

And finally there's the rest of his roles I've rather enjoyed of his like Charlie Burns, Dr. Doom, Doctor Strange, Magneto, Mr. Freeze, Calender Man, Big Bob Pataki, Father, Mortimer Mouse, Toucan Sam and Willy Wonka!

So uh yeah, Maurice LaMarche is awesome and once again Happy Birthday!

Fun Fact: He dubbed over Vincent D'Onofrio as Orson Welles in Tim Burton's Ed Wood. Probably the only time he didn't do a parody of him.

I'd love for Maurice to be able to voice Optimus OR Megatron at some point. Heck, do BOTH in the same title - he's got the skills.
