Baker’s name is not one that springs to mind immediately as a famous celebrity, but you’ve probably heard his work many, many times over the years, watching cartoons with your kids (or, being a good geek, on your own). He is a prolific voice artist, with credits spanning animated series including Star Wars: The Clone Wars, American Dad, Gravity Falls, Miles from Tomorrowland, Jake and the Neverland Pirates, Axe Cop, and The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy. He’s also done his fair share of voice work on videogames, including Gears of War, the Halo series, Tony Hawk, Spider-Man and more. He should be especially lauded for voicing GeekDad favorite Perry the Platypus on Phineas and Ferb, and Captain Rex (and every other clone) on Clone Wars.
We at GeekDad have had the pleasure of interviewing him, hosting panels upon which he sat, and even finding his lost driver’s license (a very strange, coincidental story). He is a geek, a dad, a friend to this blog and an outstanding contributor to geek culture, and so it is only fitting that we name him an Honorary GeekDad as well (only the 2nd person to receive this honor). Happy Birthday, sir!
