Kevin Michael Richardson is an American voice actor who voiced PandaBubba in the Xiaolin Showdown series.


Early life

A classically-trained actor and a native of the Bronx, New York, Richardson first gained recognition as one of only eight U.S. high school students selected for the National Foundation for the Arts' "Arts '82" program. As a result of this he earned a scholarship to Syracuse University and a spot on a PBS special directed by the esteemed late John Houseman.


Richardson has usually portrayed villainous characters due to his deep and powerful voice. His credits include Captain Gantu from Stitch! The Movie, Shnitzel from Chowder (The first episode; later replaced by John DiMaggio), Goro in Mortal Kombat, the second voice of Skulker on Danny Phantom, Sarevok in the Baldur's Gate series, Jolee Bindo in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Crunch Bandicoot in the Crash Bandicoot games, Tartarus from Halo 2, Ultimate Supreme Executive Chairman Drek in Ratchet & Clank, Antauri in Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go!, Openly Gator from Queer Duck, Doctor Payne and other characters on The Proud Family, Darth Laser (an obvious parody of Darth Vader) on Fairly Oddparents, Maurice the Aye-Aye from The Penguins of Madagascar, and the voice of Exile in the late 1990s cartoon Road Rovers. Richardson replaced Keith David as the voice of Tombstone on The Spectacular Spider-Man. In 2001, he voiced Barney Rubble on the TV animated movie The Flintstones: On the Rocks, his version of Barney Rubble's voice was more similar to the early Mel Blanc voice than to the Ed Norton imitation, which Blanc later used on the original Flintstones.

In 2004 he became the first African-American to voice the Joker for the Kids WB animated series, The Batman. In 2008, he did the voice of a hero, Bishop for Wolverine and the X-Men. Later, he did the voice of Nick Fury on The Super Hero Squad Show.

He often plays characters based on and satirizing comedian Bill Cosby, such as on Family Guy (with the voice of Jerome in "Jerome is the New Black") and The Boondocks. He also voices Cleveland Brown, Jr. and Lester Krinklesac and numerous others on The Cleveland Show.

Richardson's voice roles (in 2011) included Panthro in the 2011 Thundercats series, Martian Manhunter on Young Justice, and Bulkhead, one of the lead characters on Transformers - Prime.

He played Kilowog in Green Lantern - Rise of the Manhunters, the video game sequel to the live-action film Green Lantern, and later reprised the role in the animated series Green Lantern - The Animated Series.

Richardson married his wife Monica in May 2006. They have two children.
