Tom Kane

Kane was born in Overland Park, Kansas. He is most widely known for his animation work. Notable roles are Jedi Master Yoda and Admiral Yularen in Star Wars: The Clone Wars feature film and TV series; The Chancellor in Tim Burton's 9, Magneto in Wolverine and the X-Men and Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds; Iron Man and Ultron in Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow; Mr. Herriman, the House Manager in Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends; Lord Monkey Fist on Kim Possible; Professor Utonium and Him in The Powerpuff Girls; and Darwin, Eliza's chimpanzee sidekick in The Wild Thornberrys. He is also a prominent video game voice actor, appearing on numerous titles - from bit parts, to major roles such as Gandalf and Professor X, and lead characters in almost every Star Wars game ever made. In the video game Star Wars: The Force Unleashed he was "on-camera" as Imperial Captain Ozzik Sturn, Lobot, and also Kento Marek, the father of the protagonist: Galen Marek (Sam Witwer) - thanks to ILM's motion capture technology. In Call of Duty: World at War and Call of Duty: Black Ops, he provides the voice of Takeo Masaki, a Japanese WWII soldier in the Zombies game mode. In the arena of non-animation voiceover work, he records Movie Trailers, TV promos and commercials daily. In addition, he has been the announcer for the AFI Life Achievement Award show twice, as well as the 78th, 80th, 83rd, and 84th Academy Awards. His most recent performance was as Odin, Thor and Loki's father in the video game adaption of Thor as well as the Disneyland attraction: Thor: Treasures of Asgard, taking over the role from Anthony Hopkins from the film. In 2013, he took over as the announcer of The Eric Andre Show, replacing Gary Anthony Williams.
