Dee Bradley Baker
“Is he even human?” Talk with anyone who has worked with actor Dee Bradley Baker and that is the question that will probably arise. Dee is legendary as a special-ops problem-solving genius for all non-human vocal performances in animation, games and movies. With his voice, the impossible becomes effortlessly real. Be it monster or mammal, insect or infant, bird or barnyard, Dee produces the perfect timing and tone for the character.
Dee’s lengthy IMDB resume will confirm his incredible acting range and versatility as a straight ahead voice actor. But it is his non-human characters that are a stand out skill.
Additionally, Dee thrives on collaboration with creators. Dee works closely with the material and the creator’s vision to perfect the characters. He is often brought in by creatives to brainstorm early in a project’s development process, as when he helped create and subsequently perform the Boxtroll creature language for Laika Entertainment’s THE BOX TROLLS feature. For his lead performance as Fish, Dee earned an Annie nomination for "Outstanding Achievement in a Feature Animated Production”. You can watch a video on how to speak the language in an interview on Dee’s website.

A standout showcase of Dee’s impressive acting ability is his Annie Award nominated portrayal of Captain Rex and an entire army of clone soldiers in Lucas Animation’s Emmy winning STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS series.
