"Not sure if this is a generic voicemail message, or I mistakenly dialed Billy West"Put this guy in a room, give him a script and a mike and you can do a complete show with 20+ individual voices.In Futurama alone, he is slacker delivery boy Philip J. Fry, Mad Scientist Professor Hubert Farnsworth, smarmy space captain Zapp Brannigan,note Richard Nixon (who is now President of Earth and, like many celebrities from the past, is a head kept alive in a jar), and half of any background/supporting characters you see — oh, and Dr. Zoidberg, the loser lobster-esque alien doctor....and all of this after he first came to public attention as the voice of both Doug and Roger on Doug and both title characters of Ren and Stimpy after John Kricfalusi (the original voice of Ren) was firednote . He (along with Joe Alaskey) has become one of few voice actors who can impersonate Mel Blanc in his prime, including characterizations of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd and other characters from the Looney Tunes. He's also the Red M&M. Even before he was known for all these roles, West worked in radio, and was actually a cast member of The Howard Stern Show from 1989-1995 (which explains the joke on "Luck of the Fryrish" when Fry runs into the middle of the streets of Old New York and yells, "Howard Stern is overrated!" It's not only an Actor Allusion, but a Take That, as West didn't like working on Howard Stern's radio show either).Not to be confused with the guy from the video game The Adventures of Bayou Billy. Interestingly, his brother Mike voiced Fox McCloud in Star Fox 64 (but not in its 3DS remake).
