Ned Hastings (born August 26, 1966 in Atlanta, Georgia), is an American video editor and producer and sometime writer and voice actor best known for his work on various Adult Swim programs, most notably "Aqua Teen Hunger Force". He has sometimes been credited as "Edward Hastings".
His first association with Cartoon Network was as an editor for "Space Ghost Coast to Coast" two years before the inception of Adult Swim. The first episode he worked on was called "My Dinner with Steven", which was to feature comedian Steven Wright, but which was never completed. Later, he edited "Fire Ant" which featured Conan O'Brien.
He edited the dialogue and audio for the earliest version of "Rabbot", the original pilot of "Aqua Teen Hunger Force". After that show was given the greenlight to create its first season, Hastings came back to Williams Street Studios to edit more episodes of the Space Ghost show. His first work for Aqua Teen was as the dialogue editor for "Mayhem of the Mooninites". He became a regular episode editor in the second season, starting with the episode "Ol' Drippy". Eventually, he was made a producer of the series, along with fellow editor Jay Wade Edwards and the show's creators Dave Willis and Matt Maiellaro. He voiced himself on the episode Super Trivia.
