here's a question that someone (or any number of people) show know: How many voices has John DiMaggio done? I mean, we all know that Tress McNeil, Dave Herman, Maurice LaMarsh (CANUK WOO!) et al have done a billion and one voices, but how many has DiMaggio done? I leave it to you, peelers!

Sincerely Me,

Quite a few, although he did less of them around Season 4. Either he purposely wanted to do less incidental voices and stick with Bender or the writers realised that he wasn't quite as versatile as West or LaMarche and wrote less parts for him.

You're missing Billy West in the list... I mean, how can you not acknowledge Fry, Farnsworth, Zoidberg, AND the Zapper? Anyways, John did Bender, Flexo, Elzar, Santa in ATOTS, and Sal in the big roles. I'm not sure about the other thingamajigs though...

John does voices on a lot of other shows, too.. For instance, he and Phil LaMarr worked together on Samurai Jack, in which Phil played Jack and John played the scottish warrior. In uturama, though, Randy is one of his greatest voices. And his Coilette..! Genius.

I agree with Evil Lunch, I loved the voice he did for Coilette, it was feminine but he still manage to keep Bender's character while acting, superb!!! And Randy, my god. "It's Randy!!! I love Randy!!!"~John Dimaggio. I laugh at everything he say's. Except one thing, Randy keeps changing his hair colour, sometimes it's brown and sometimes it's blonde.
This made me laugh.
"People said i was crazy for building this ark."
"U Idiot! u filled it with same sex animals!"
"hey, some parts of the bible I like and some parts I don't like."
Oh another classic John Dimaggio voice was, Zapp Brannigan's surprise date in "Put ur head on my shoulder."
"Wait u didn't show me ur surprise!"~Zapp

you forgot about the time John went back in time and became his own grandpa thereby replacing the identical dna that is represented in Joe DiMaggio..... oh wait, that seems awfully familiar to something else...

That's Harry Shearer. Alan Shearer is a famous English footballer, the previous captain to David Beckham. In England Alan Shearer is much more well known - he currently plays for Newcastle United.

I know this isnt a voice, but in a leela of her own, my favorite DiMaggio "quote" is when the black bar thing gets knocked out, Billy does the "i win thing" and then DiMaggio goes off as randy about the hilarity of the line, WOO!

His delivery on the recurring "We're/I'm boned" line is consistently inspiring.

I loved Bender's song about being boned in Godfellas:
"Don't ask whom the bone bones for;
The bone bones for thee"

I was just watching Kim Possible on the Disney channel and I was looking through the credits and I spotted.
John Dimaggio....................D r. Draken
Whoa, he sounds nothing like John.

I thought of one other character that John does; the pizza box. In the cryonic woman, he's the pizza box that both informs fry of the time and threatens violence.

Just to make a small correction to that list, Fishy Joe's voice is actually Maurice LaMarche.

Did someone already say the "Why you so stupid, stupid?" transvestite robot?  big grin One of my faves, and one the few voices I can imitate.  no no On an unrelated note: There are a lot of Futurama voice actors which pop up in unexpected places, for example Tress does a voice in Kiki's Delivery Service.  eek Major double-take on the credits when I saw that.

Those who choose to alter fate will do so at their own misery.

These voice actors should put up websites with bios and info and resumes and head shots and stuff.  it would increase their public profile! they could demand higher salaries!  and be accosted by fanboys.  fanpeople.  d'oh.   smile

Draken is.. a ... HILARIOUS VOICE. It does sound a great deal like John, though. Almost like Robot Santa, now that I think about it. And how he plays off of Nicole Sullivan as Shego consistently amuses me.

Re: billywest.com.....
strange there's no picture of Fry (and/or any of the others) in his toonography section, and no mention anywhere that he did the voice of ZIM in the invader Zim pilot. Oh well.
