A classically-trained actor, Kevin Michael Richardson first gained recognition as one of only eight U.S. high school students selected for the National Foundation for the Arts' "Arts '82" program, winning him a spot on a PBS special directed by the esteemed late John Houseman and a scholarship to Syracuse University. He is very grateful for the opportunities that have been presented to him since.

Kevin has been more widely heard than seen through the hundreds of animated, commercial and video game characters he has created over the past years, due largely to his deep, distinctive voice. He was heard in theaters as the voice of Thaddeus in ''Animatrix: Final Flight of the Osiris'' in addition to being featured in the third installment of ''Film/TheMatrix'' trilogy, Matrix Revolutions, as the character DeusExMachina. Kevin was also seen in The WB's family comedy ''Series/LikeFamily'' as the patriarch of an extended family that includes his wife's best friend and her teenage son. He was featured in the hit animated movie ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'' and continued in the animated series of the same name as Captain Gantu. Other animated feature films include ''Country Bears'', ''{{WesternAnimation/Rugrats}} in Paris: The Movie'', ''{{WesternAnimation/Recess}}: School's Out'', ''Whispers'', ''An Elephants Tale'', ''WesternAnimation/AllDogsGoToHeaven 2'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheWildThornberrys Movie'', in which he voiced the mystic Shaman, a role he also portrays in the television series.

Among the numerous animated television series roles he can be heard in: Uncle Oswidge in ''WesternAnimation/DaveTheBarbarian'', Glorft Commander and other characters in WesternAnimation/MegasXLR, Dr. Pain in ''WesternAnimation/TheProudFamily'' and Robert Hawkins in the Kids' WB! show ''StaticShock''. Other memorable characters Richardson voiced include The Boogeyman in ''ThePowerpuffGirls,'' Barney Rubble in ''TheFlintstones: On The Rocks'' and Plato in the PBS series ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresFromTheBookOfVirtues''. Richardson's primetime characters include Mr. Hudson and Rasta Man in The WB's ''ThePJs''. Other animated series include ''SpongeBobSquarePants'', ''JusticeLeague'', ''BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand'' and ''SamuraiJack'', just to name a few. In the realm of video games, Kevin has voiced characters for many PC and Playstation games including ''Enter Film/TheMatrix'', ''VideoGame/IndianaJonesAndTheEmperorsTomb'', ''StarWars'', ''Franchise/CrashBandicoot'' and ''BaldursGate''.

Kevin has also lent his voice to countless film and television promos, including the voice of the smiley-face price-buster for Wal-Mart, spokesman for Southwest Airlines, the announcer for the 2000 Emmy Awards and the voice of numerous Kids' WB! promos.

In front of the camera, Richardson has appeared in films, television and commercials. He is especially proud of the three-episode arc on ''{{ER}}'' in which he portrayed Patrick, a mentally-challenged young man. He was featured in the pilot for ''The Next Big Thing'' starring Sara Gilbert and previously essayed the role of Vashti in the series ''HomeboysInOuterSpace''. His feature film appearances include ''{{Bound}}'' with Joe Pantoliano and JenniferTilly, ''BASEketball'' by ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, and the Carl Reiner film ''FatalInstinct''.

Kevin currently lives in Los Angeles, California.
