Yitzhak Edward "Ed" Asner (born November 15, 1929) is an Emmy award winner who has been acting since 1957. He's perhaps best known for his character Lou Grant who debuted in ''Series/TheMaryTylerMooreShow''. After the show's run, Asner's character would be given his own show, ''Series/LouGrant''. This made him one of the few actors to play the same character on both a comedy series and a drama series (and he won Emmys for both, a feat that's since only happened once more with Uzo Abuda).

Asner started his voice acting career in 1981, but his roles in voice acting really took off in 1992 when he voiced Hoggish Greedly in ''WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers''. He would go on from that to role to voice many beloved, if somewhat gruff characters, as well as a plethora of one-shot characters for television, movies, and video games, his most famous recent role probably being Carl Frederickson from ''WesternAnimation/{{Up}}''.
