Gregory Dean Baldwin (born September 13, 1960) is an American actor and voice actor.

Personal life[edit]

Born in Grants, New Mexico, and raised in Spring, Texas, he currently resides in the San Fernando Valley with his wife Melissa Baldwin of thirty years. Their two children, Sydney and Cooper, attend college out of state.

According to an interview with The Dot and Line, Baldwin was able to fill-in for the late Mako Iwamatsu on his voice roles by listening to the cast album of Pacific Overtures, a musical that Mako starred in, which was a personal favorite album of Baldwin’s.

Career[edit]

Theater[edit]

Baldwin has worked in the theater extensively as Sidney Lipton in God's Favorite, Mushnik in Little Shop of Horrors, Dr. Zubritsky in Neil Simon's Fools, Count Otto Von Bruno in Bullshot Crummond and the Baker in The Baker's Wife.

Television[edit]

Baldwin voiced Iroh for the final season of Avatar: The Last Airbender, and later for the second and third seasons of The Legend of Korra. He can be heard as the ancient Jedi Master Tera Sinube and as Casiss on Star Wars: The Clone Wars. He provided the voice of multiple characters in Lego Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures, most notably, the voice of Furlac. He voiced Aku in the fifth season of Samurai Jack.[1]

Both Iroh and Aku were voice roles Baldwin inherited from fellow voice actor Mako, who died in 2006.

Films[edit]

Baldwin performed a substantial portion of Splinter's dialogue in the movie TMNT after Mako died during production.[2] In 2016, he appeared as communist writer Dutch Zwiestrong in Hail, Caesar![3]

Video games[edit]

Baldwin first voiced Aku (from Samurai Jack) in the 2009 video game Cartoon Network Universe: FusionFall. He also voiced Frank Fontaine, the main antagonist in BioShock; though Karl Hanover, who voiced Fontaine's alter ego Atlas in the first game, replaced Baldwin as Fontaine in BioShock 2 and BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea. His voice can also be heard in numerous other video games, including Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Lockdown, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, F.E.A.R. and Fallout 4.
