Creator: George Newbern

George Newbern (born 1964) is an American actor who's worked as both an on-screen actor and a voice actor. As an on-screen actor, he's best known as Bryan MacKenzie in the Father Of The Bride movies and Danny the Yeti on Friends. As a voice actor he started his career as Ren on The Pirates of Dark Water. However, as a voice actor, he's best known as the voice of Superman and Sephiroth.

His tenure as Superman started on Justice League, when he replaced Tim Daly, who'd voiced the character on Superman: The Animated Series, but was busy with other obligations. After a rough start during the first season of Justice League and a lot of complaining from fans, Newbern found his footing during the show's second season and was then embraced by fans as being a perfectly good Superman in his own right. Much like Daly did in Superman: Brainiac Attacks, the Superman/Batman movies and Justice League: Doom, Newbern has also reprised the role of Superman in The Batman, Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam, Superman vs. the Elite, and Injustice: Gods Among Us.

As Sephiroth, he first got the role for Kingdom Hearts II after he impressed the producers as Mevyn Nooj in Final Fantasy X-2, replacing Lance Bass, who voiced him in the first Kingdom Hearts. Newbern also voiced Sephiroth in Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, Dissidia: Final Fantasy, and Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy.

Other credits include Charlie in Scandal, Apollo 14 astronaut Stu Roosa in From the Earth to the Moon and the voice of the title character of the infamous Theodore Rex.
