Townsend Coleman
Voice of Jason Whittaker

As a busy Hollywood voice-actor, Townsend Coleman is perhaps one of the most recognizable voices on TV. Since 1993, he's been the voice of NBC's Must See TV and Comedy Night Done Right promos and promos for The Tonight Show starring Jay Leno, Saturday Night Live, Late Night with Conan O'Brien and Last Call with Carson Daily. He also voices the daily promos for the long-running Live with Regis and Kelly. But the character behind the voice really came to life in 1985, when Coleman, having just moved to Los Angeles from Cleveland, Ohio, won a chance audition for the animated hit, Inspector Gadget. As the voice of Corporal Capeman, Gadget's bumbling assistant, he embarked on an entirely new career, providing the voices for some of the most memorable characters in cartoons and commercials. In addition to thwarting evil as the voice of The Tick, Fox Kids' hit animated series, he has provided the voices for many popular cartoon characters, including Michaelangelo on the original, long-running cartoon series, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. He also played Waldo on Where's Waldo?, Gobo on NBC's animated Fraggle Rock, Scott on Teenwolf, Scratch on Spacecats, the voice of Wayne Gretzky on Prostars, Riot on Jem, Dragonflyer on Glofriends, Rewind on Transformers and many others.

In addition to his active animation career, Coleman has also been the voice behind numerous national TV ad campaigns for clients such as Home Depot, Kellogg's Frosted Flakes, Mattel Hot Wheels, Sunny Delight, Colgate, Jenny Craig, Blockbuster Video, Greyhound, AT&T, Eggo Waffles, Taco Bell and "Spot", the precocious red 7-Up dot... even a few "Keebler elves" and "Raid bugs". Townsend is best known on Adventures in Odyssey as the voice of Jason Whittaker.
