Happy Birthday Tom Kane!!

Really enjoy his voiceover work as Professor Utonium and HIM (The Powerpuff Girls), Yoda, Mr. Herriman (Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends), Darwin (The Wild Thornberrys), and Monkey Fist (Kim Possible).

It still surprises me that aside from voicing Professor Utonium and HIM in the PPG reboot, the many "Star Wars" projects he's doing (games, films, shows, etc..), and select video games ("Call of Duty", "LEGO Dimensions"), it seems he hasn't been appearing in as much voice-over work in Pre-lay animation when compared to his previous VO work 5-8 years ago.

It's also worth noticing that he seams to mostly do Commercial VO and trailer narration these days. I don't blame him cause Commercials seem to have better pay and also the VO industry is a lot different right now compared to when he started out.

Hope he get's to do more VO work soon.

Celebrate we shall. Happy Birthday, Tom Kane! In terms of narration and just voice acting in general, he's a wondrous specimen all around. My favorite Kane performances at the moment are Magneto/Erik Lensherr, Ultron, Bob, Monkey Fist, Darwin, Dr. Doomis, Professor Utonium, Him, Mr. Herriman, Professor Robert Kaufman, Yoda, Arcticguana, and Ultimos.

I thought Tom did a pretty nice job filling in for the late Erik Bauersfeld in The Last Jedi as he had been doing for a while now, though I get that sinking suspicion that the only reason what happened to Ackbar in TLJ, only happened because of Erik's passing in between movies, which I think is rather disappointing (just like the movie itself).

Honestly it's really weird seeing Tom Kane's starting to get a bit underused and not getting as much work outside of Star Wars as of late, I hope he gets some new roles soon.

Happy Birthday Tom Kane!

@Autovolt Agreed. Pretty much the ONLY non-Star Wars projects he's been doing have been reprising his roles as Professor Utonium and HIM in the "PPG" reboot, and select video games ("Call of Duty", "LEGO Dimensions"), when compared to his VO work 5-10 years ago. :/

It's also worth noticing that he seams to mostly do Commercial VO and trailer narration these days. I don't blame him cause commercial/trailer narration seem to pay better and also the VO industry is a lot different right now compared to when he started out. It's also worth noting that many other voice over actors have also been mostly doing Commercial narration these days besides Tom Kane: Rino Romano, Anna Graves, Debi Mae West, etc..

Here's to hope he get's to do more VO work soon.

This guy is like a Crispin Freeman of the A-list. That same diaphragmatic, soothing lyric baritone, soft-spoken, sexy sound. Mmm.

You know, whenever I hear Tom narrate something or voice act that baritone british voice he does (like Magneto for example), I can't hear it without thinking of Scrubbing Bubbles commercials. Don't get me wrong, it's an interesting voice, but I can't hear it and not think of Scrubbing Bubbles since I heard him narrate numerous commercials for it before hearing him using it when he voice acts.

Happy Birthday Tom Kane!

One of the best voices for either voice overs or voice acting.

My favourite roles of his would have to include Professor Utonium, Him, Mr. Herriman, Darwin, Monkey Fist, Quincy Sharp, Professor Thornton, Magneto, Ultron and Yoda.

He also does a really impressive Morgan Freeman impression.

and finally as TylerMirage has said before, He really needs voice in anything Transformers related...anyone will do honestly.

I really want him to be in *something* Transformers-related. I think he'd make a killer Shockwave. And Perceptor. And Alpha Trion.
