James Arnold Taylor (born July 22, 1969) is a voice actor in video games and film. He rose to prominence by providing English voice work in Square Enix's 2001 video game, Final Fantasy X.

James' other roles during this period include Ratchet in the Ratchet & Clank series (barring the original game), Leonardo from the 2007 TMNT film, Wooldoor Sockbat on the Comedy Central animated series Drawn Together, and voice-doubling for both Captain Jack Sparrow and Timon in Kingdom Hearts II.

Today, Taylor is best known for his role in the Star Wars franchise as Obi-Wan Kenobi. He first voiced Obi-Wan in the Star Wars: Clone Wars micro-series and reprised his role in the video game adaption of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, Star Wars: Battlefront II, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels and Star Wars Battlefront II (2017). To date, he has portrayed Obi-Wan more than both Ewan McGregor and Sir Alec Guinness.
