OUTRAGEOUS! John DiMaggio has his own page now!?

Well, yes. Yes he does.

John William DiMaggio (born 1968) is in basically every single current Western cartoon imaginable — moreso than his Futurama co-star Billy West. You can easily spot his work by his Guttural Growler Large Ham nature.

And as the photo proves, he is not a pseudonym of Peter Cullen. He's also not to be confused with the famous baseball player Joe DiMaggio.

Has a Twitter account. Noted for being nice when not acting.

Some of his roles include:

John DiMaggio's work provides examples of:

  • Actor Allusion: He's played a talking dog sidekick three times now.
  • Badass Baritone / Evil Sounds Deep: A lot of his roles are this. John naturally has a deep baritone voice.
  • The Big Guy: Plays a lot of these.
  • Guttural Growler: Almost all of his roles are like this.
  • Large Ham: It's one of his fortes.
  • Ink-Suit Actor:
    • The writers of Kim Possible created the character of "Motor Ed" so that John could "be himself." Similarly, he also looks somewhat like Marcus Fenix.
    • Word of God says they made Human Bender on the "Anthology of Interest" episode of Futurama that included the stories of "What if Bender was a human, what if Fry's life was like a video game, and what if Leela went on a Wizard of Oz-style journey to find her family" exactly like John - both in looks and personality.
