Antti Pääkkönen (born February 5th, 1964 in Kuhmo) is a Finnish actor.

In 1974, he became interested in acting when his older brother Seppo invited him to the Riihimäki Theater. After graduating from high school, he studied acting at the University of Tampere and graduated with a master's degree in theater. In 1985, he began working as an actor at the Finnish National Theater.

He has four older brothers, including actor Seppo and artist Markku. His daughters Marketta and Petra, and Seppo's son Jasper, are also actors.

He should not be confused with Antti L. J. Pääkkönen, a Finnish singer who is also a voice actor. Confusingly, both have appeared in a few dubs together, such as Spongebob Squarepants (L. J. was SpongeBob and Antti was Squidward before they were both replaced).

Some of Antti's roles include:

Films - Animation
