Tom Kane started doing voiceover work professionally at the age of 15. By the time he got out of college he had done several hundred commercials, and by 23 he was in Chicago, regularly landing National TV spots.
Tom’s tremendous vocal range has led to a very busy career. Every week, he records dozens of Movie Trailers, Commercials, Network TV Promos, Video Games and Cartoons.
His voice can currently be heard in The Last Jedi (as Admiral Ackbar), Rogue One, The Force Awakens, The Clone Wars (as Jedi Master Yoda, Admiral Yularen and the show Narrator), Archer, Star Wars Rebels, at the Walt Disney Theme Parks as the voice of The Monorail System and a half-dozen Star Wars rides and attractions. On any given day, he is heard on a half-dozen Movie Trailers, and TV commercials for clients such as Hotwire, Walmart, Jeep, Netflix, Nintendo, Propel Water, McDonald’s, Kellogg’s, and network promos for CBS, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, FOX… talking Christmas Tree ornaments and greeting cards for Hallmark… the list goes on.
In addition to voicing Yoda, Admiral Ackbar and Admiral Yularen for Lucasfilm/Disney’s Star Wars Feature Films, Rebels, The Clone Wars and the LEGO Movie and TV Series, he has starring and Special Guest roles in Archer, Family Guy, The Powerpuff Girls, Scooby Doo, Shrek 3, Robot Chicken, Kim Possible, The Avengers, Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, Iron Man, The Wild Thornberrys, Wolverine and the X-Men and dozens of other animated series going back 25 years.
Tom has been in almost every Star Wars game ever made, as well as games based on Star Trek, The X-Men, Batman, The Avengers, The Lord of the Rings and more.
An unusual area of Kane’s work is voice-doubling. When celebrities are not available to do their post-production, testing or Trailer dialogue recording, Tom fills in for A-Listers such as Morgan Freeman, Anthony Hopkins, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellan, Liam Neeson and others.
He has also been the live Announcer for three AFI Lifetime Achievement Award telecasts, as well as the Live Broadcast Announcer for The 78th, 80th, 83rd and 84th Academy Awards on ABC.
