George Newbern is an American TV, voice and film actor best known for his roles as Danny (The Yeti) in Friends, as Sephiroth from the Final Fantasy series and the Kingdom Hearts series as well as Superman from the Justice League animated series.

BiographyEdit

George Newbern was born in Little Rock, Arkansas, the son of a teacher of Spanish and a radiologist. George, and his now wife Marietta, graduated from Northwestern University in 1986 with a degree of Bachelor in Theatrical Arts. He soon began his acting career at the Arkansas Arts Center in Little Rock.

The late eighties saw George begin his onscreen career with a recurring role in the hit comedy series Designing Women. He also got his first lead role in the TV Film Double Switch, a retelling of The Prince and the Pauper that aired as a part of the Wonderful World of Disney television series.

He has since guest-starred on multiple TV shows such as Providence, Chicago Hope, Friends, Bull, CSI, Medium, Ghost Whisperer, Criminal Minds, Private Practice, Nip/Tuck and The Mentalist. He also starred as Neal Morris in the 2009 TV movie Dadnapped and as Apollo 14 astronaut Stu Roosa in the mini-series From the Earth to the Moon.

His movie acting credits include Adventures in Babysitting (1987), Switching Channels (1988), his first lead role on the big screen in It Takes Two and Father of the Bride (1991) and its sequel Father of the Bride Part II, where he handled the role of Bryan MacKenzie, the prospective son-in-law. More recently he has made the horror films Crazy Eight and Sublime and the dramas Fireflies in the Garden and The Assignment.

Newbern voice acting career began in 1991 with the cartoon series The Pirates of Dark Water and in 1995 he provided the voice of Theodore Rex in the Whoopi Goldberg comedy of the same name. Since then his voice acting credits have grown with voiceovers on a number of video games and game-related productions, becoming quite popular as Sephiroth in the English-language releases of Final Fantasy VII Advent Children, Kingdom Hearts II, Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII and Dissidia: Final Fantasy; he also voice-acted as Mevyn Nooj in Final Fantasy X-2.

But Newbern popularity really increased when he put voice to Superman in the series Static Shock and Justice League, and more so when he replaced the original voice-actor of Superman on the series Justice League Unlimited. He reprised his role as Superman in the fifth season two-part opener the series finale episode of the animated show The Batman.
