A native of New York City, Fred Tatasciore has lent his voice to animated characters in films, television shows, and video games ever since his debut in 1983's "Jackie Chan's Project A. " Usually voicing secondary characters, heavies, and roughnecks, he started to gain more consistent work early in the 2000s on shows like "Family Guy" and "Naruto," while also working on video games like "X2: Wolverine's Revenge" and "The Cat in the Hat." He voiced Samuel L. Jackson in Trey Parker and Matt Stone's outlandish puppet film "Team America: World Police" in 2004 and continued to be heard in films and TV series like "Invader ZIM," "Back at the Barnyard," "Curious George," and "Robot Chicken" in the mid-2000s; he also worked extensively in video games, voicing heavies and brutes in "God of War," "Rainbow Six: Lockdown," and "Batman Begins." With more works added to his resume, Tatasciore continued to voice characters frequently in big-budgeted, animated features in the late 2000s like the Tim Burton-produced "9," "TMNT," "Beowulf," and "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa." He furthered his career into the 2010s with more work in television. He voiced several characters in the series "Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated," The Hulk in "The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes," and Shifu in "Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness." He also continued his prolific run of voice work in video games and can be heard in "God of War III" and the highly anticipated "Call of Duty: Black Ops."
