Describe Jeffery Combs here.

He wears a blue overcoat, fedora.

You really stink at this.

Orange socks?

A character actor born September 9, 1954, Jeffrey Alan Combs attracted distinct fandoms for his work in four separate franchises:
1) Appearing in horror films, best known role being Dr. Herbert West.
2) Playing a of number of characters in Star Trek franchise.
3) Providing his voice to the DCAU franchise.
4) Voicing Ratchet in Transformers Prime.

He starred in Re-Animator and its sequels as H.P. Lovecraft's mad scientist anti-hero Herbert West. Combs also appeared in Re-Animator's companion piece, From Beyond, and in many lesser Lovecraftian projects of varying quality. He's also known for portraying Edgar Allan Poe in Television films such as The Black Cat and in his critically acclaimed one-man show Nevermore.

Combs most notable roles in his numerous roles in Star Trek as Weyoun (several times over) in DS9 and Shran in Enterprise. He also plays the Ferengi Brunt in DS9 as well as several one-shot roles throughout the series.

Combs lent his voice to The Question in the DCAU, portrayed as a nervous-brilliant Conspiracy Theorist in Justice League Unlimited. (He would go on to voice two characters who work for the conspiracy, Headmaster Hayden Montag and Dr. Charles Zurn, in The Secret World.) Combs also voiced the redesigned Scarecrow in The New Batman Adventures.

He voiced Transformers Prime.

He also voiced The Leader, H.P. Hatecraft, Kite Man, Soul Sever, and Rat King.

Jeffrey Combs is particularly recognized for his distinctively creepy voice, which has led him to an increasing amount of work in animation over the last decade. The ironic thing? That's not his real voice. Watch any interview with Combs and you'll hear that his natural speaking voice sounds nothing like the idiosyncratic intonation and slimy tone of his "acting voice" that he uses in every single role, regardless of whether he's playing an intentionally creepy character or even a heroic badass. That's right, Jeffrey Combs has been vocally typecast.
