Billy West is tops in the voice-over business. Some of his most famous voices include "Ren & Stimpy," Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd in the feature film "Space Jam" and the official voice of Woody Woodpecker, as well as providing celebrity voice impersonations on "The Howard Stern Show."
He declares that deep down, he is fulfilling his childhood dream. He braved a brief stint doing stand-up in 1978, but quickly realized that it wasn't the life for him when he discovered he could reach far more people on the air than in person. In 1988, he landed the role of Cecil in the cartoon "Beanie and Cecil," which brought him to the attention of the creators of "Ren & Stimpy," where his voice talents were used to portray the dim-bulb feline Stimpy and the psychotic chihuahua Ren.
On Futurama, Billy stars as Fry, Zoidberg, Farnsworth, Zapp Brannigan and others.
