Peter Charles "Pete" Capella III (born June 3, 1977 in Red Bank, New Jersey)[1] is an American actor and voice actor best known for his voice role as Silver the Hedgehog in the Sonic the Hedgehog games.

Early life[edit]

A Middletown Township, New Jersey resident, Capella has been acting his whole life.[2] He graduated from college with a BA in Theater and Communications.


In 1993, he became a performer in Improvision Jam Comedy Labs, it was here he got the nickname "The Sniper". He is co-owner and artistic director of the troupe, performing every weekend in Eatontown, New Jersey. Capella has been featured in an array of commercials (for cough medicine and toys such as Dance N Sing Pablo from the Backyardigans). As of today, Capella will be pursuing acting full-time. He also teaches acting and improvisation, as he previously resided in New York City. He has moved to California, since there were business venues offered to him by an agent of a voiceover agency, who they thought he would make a great narrator for some commercials and for upcoming anime series.
