He was on The Muppets last night as a doctor.

His voice does fit a doctor rather well.

Happy Birthday Phil LaMarr!!

Easily one of my favorite African American voice actors from my generation. I enjoyed his performances as Wilt, Static Shock, John Stewart/Green Lantern, Kit Fisto, Hector Con Carne, Jackie Khones, Bail Organa, Osmosis Jones, and especially Samurai Jack.

I'm so excited to see him reprise his role as Jack once again. So happy birthday.

I can't believe Samurai Jack is coming back this year, I'm very glad it's getting the conclusion is sorely deserved and even more glad Phil LaMarr is coming back, I can't see anyone else pulling off Jack as well as Phil does, plus I really love how out of the box the casting was, it really worked well.

I also finally saw Pulp Fiction for the first time last year and oh man he was great as Marvin. Definitely one of the funniest minor characters in a movie, granted it's funnier because of what happened to the character but still, that scene was friggin hysterical in the darkest way imaginable.

Happy Birthday Phil LaMarr!

Fun Fact: He's the one who got shot in the face in Pulp Fiction.

In the case of his voice acting, he is one of my favorites growing up. I never knew his name at the time but he's been Static, Samurai Jack, Wilt, Ollie Williams, Aquaman, Dracula, Green Lantern, Wonder Man (had no that was him), Bolbi (NEVER would have guessed that was him), Virgil Sharkowski (Again no idea), and Gambit. One things for sure, his range impressive.

Hello Phil, on the off chance that your'e reading this, I just want to say you are one of the greatest voice actors of all time, and everyone on this site adores your work. BY GOD, you have such awesome range!! You can go deep and god-like(like with Jon Stewart and Aquaman), to calm and stoic(Samurai Jack) to just an all around nice guy(Wilt). The accents you can do are incredible(Black Panther, Hermes, Jack, Gambit), the impressions(Will Smith, Michael Jackson, Chris Rock, Redd Foxx), your ability to go really high(Sharkowski) or just play a normal kid(Virgil Hawkins, Dwight Conrad). Seriously dude, your'e one of the few voice actors wich every single one of your roles was great. At worst you can call one good, but you're one of the few VAs that doesn't have at least one role that made me cringe. For those reasons and for more, you are my favorite VA.

I know guys, I'm a suck up. But come on, this guy is awesome.

So many great voices... but to me he'll always be John Stewart/Green Lantern first and foremost.

An amazing VA with amazing range, he never gives a bad performance.
Also when he makes live action appearance he does really well.
