Roger Craig Smith - Biography

Born in St. Joseph, Michigan and raised in Tustin, California, Smith always had an interest in the entertainment industry. After receiving a degree in screenwriting from Chapman University Dodge College of Film and Media Arts, Smith briefly pursued writing for the big screen as a career. Though he gained recognition as a finalist in the Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting competition, Smith quickly found his niche in voice acting. Over the past few years Smith has done vocal work for nearly every major studio, including Disney, Cartoon Network, Warner Bros, Microsoft Game Studios, Nickelodeon, Ubisoft, Sony, E!, and TLC.

Disney's Planes, one of Smith's biggest feature film projects to date, was three years in the making. He is one of only two actors present at the first table read to retain his character through development and completion of the film. During the three years of recording sessions, Smith was expecting to be replaced by an on-camera celebrity for the final recording of the film. However, Disney recognized his enormous talent and kept him on board as "Ripslinger" for the final release of the film.

Smith supplies the voice of "Thomas" (as well as countless other characters) in Cartoon Network's Emmy Award-winning Regular Show, and he voices characters "Belson" and "Percy" in the Cartoon Network hit series Clarence. On Disney XD, Smith can be heard as iconic superhero "Captain America" for the blockbuster show Avengers Assemble.

On the video game front, his voice work includes credits such as "Sonic The Hedgehog" (also in Disney's feature film Wreck-It-Ralph and upcoming Cartoon Network series Sonic Boom!), "Batman" in Batman: Arkham Origins, "Ezio Auidtore da Firenze" in the Assassin's Creed games, and the Resident Evil series of games (as "Chris Redfield").

In addition to his film, TV animation and extensive gaming work, Smith also narrates a handful of hit television shows - including "Say Yes to the Dress" (TLC) and the DIY Network "Crashers" series of shows.

Smith resides in Chatsworth, California, where he enjoys mountain biking and playing video games. He is an active supporter of Children's Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) and Seacrest Studios/Seacrest Foundation, which entertains children in the hospital by having patients host & appear in their own radio and television programs aired throughout the hospital network.
