A busy professional working actor in all mediums, Knight has been 'on stage' for most of his life. Starting at the age of five with the legendary Aimee Semple MacPherson at the Angeles Temple. From there he toured the country as Little Billy Knight, World's Youngest Boy Preacher for nearly ten years. He made the transition to theatre at LACC. He was brought to NYC for the Broadway debut of the notorious, Oh! Calcutta!, which ran for years. He remained in NYC for 15 years working on and off B'way. While he was a lowly enlisted man in the USAF he has played the three most famous Generals of the 20th century: MacArthur, off B'way in, The Bonus Army, Eisenhower, on B'way in, An Evening With Richard Nixon, and Patton in a video for Lockheed. He has done most of Neil Simon's works in dinner theatre. His most profoundly moving work was the title role in Brian Friel's, Faith Healer off B'way. His favorite musical was 1776. His classical roles vary from Iago in Othello, to the Sheriff in Much Ado About Nothing. His first TV role was in the original Star Trek. He has appeared in many films including, Stargate, Nautilus, I Got The Hookup, The Garbage Man, Frog-g-g, Exorcism, as well as many Webisodes on the Internet, and skits on Funny or Die. He has voiced numerous documentaries, TV and radio commercials. He also announced the CBS Ch 2 News for several years. His voice work is extensive and he remains active to this day.

This is how i imagine all old men sound in any anime :)


EnterTragedy | Feb 4, 2012 7:37 AM
I could've sworn he voice-acted one of the Elders in Appleseed.. Or is that just my imagination? Sounded very much like Aramaki from GITS/SAC.


Prede | Nov 28, 2010 3:26 PM
Yeah this guy plays "old men" like there's no tomorrow. And he's damn good at it too.


D20Watt | Feb 5, 2010 6:50 AM
