(More announcements to come!)
Robert Axelrod has carved a career in show business that runs the gamut. Born and raised in New York City, he did commercials and theater as a child and teen, eventually ending up in the Soho Avant-garde Theater scene in a show called “Little Trips”, then Off-Broadway in a play called “The Destroyers”. Axelrod left acting for the world of music. He spent eight years as a working rock musician playing electric bass and singing in folk, rock, and soul bands. Music brought him to Los Angeles where he decided to return to acting, a decision he never regrets.
Since then, Mr. Axelrod has appeared in over thirty feature films including four with Charles Bronson, the Sci-Fi hit remake “The Blob” with Kevin Dillon and many others. Television appearances include guest star roles on “Amazing Stories”, “Star Trek Voyager”, “Tim And Eric’s Awesome Show”, and “The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. He also starred in the Michael Jackson music video “Stranger in Moscow”, and the horror dark comedy, “The Revenant”. His performance in the short film THE GOLDFISH is garnering rave reviews.
Mr. Axelrod is also a busy voice over artist. He is the voice of Lord Zedd and Finster on the “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers”. The Lord Zedd voice is one of the most recognizable character voices around. He voiced Armadillomon and Wizardmon on “Digimon, Microchip, The Punisher’s sidekick, on “Spiderman”, Rico on “Robotech”, and has voiced countless Anime features including “Akira”, “The Big O”, “Cowboy Bebop”, “Brain Scratch”, et al. As Lord Zedd, he starred in both the first Power Rangers feature film and the wildly popular live show that toured the country. He was a regular character on Saban Entertainment’s “Wowser” series (as Ratso Catso), “Journey To The Heart of the World” (as Scarface), “Hallo Spencer” (as Elmer), and more. He just finished narrating the mockumentary “Safety First: The Rise of Women and voicing four Anime series, “Gaiking”, “Danguard Ace”, “Captain Horlock”, “The Adventures of Nadja”, and “Fist of the North Star”.
Emmy Award winner Jeff Nimoy adapted, voice directed, and served as story editor for the top rated Fox Kids show Digimon: Digital Monsters (he also voiced many characters). He also adapted and voice directed the theatrically released 20th Century Fox animated feature Digimon: The Movie, and the television sequel, Digimon: Revenge of Diaboromon for Disney. He served as executive producer and writer on numerous other Fox Kids shows as well. But the anime community also knows him as the voice for the popular character Wolfwood, from the hit cult series Trigun.
Prior to that he was nominated for three Emmy awards in four years, winning once for his comedic work as a writer/producer/voice director for NFL Films Presents on ESPN and Fox. He also wrote the Showtime family movie Big
Brother Trouble, and the animated feature, Pecola, based on the Cartoon
Network series. In addition, he adapted and/or voice directed several popular Cartoon Network series including Naruto, Bleach, Zatch Bell, and Bo-bobo; the animated series Mega Man for KIDS WB; Digimon Data Squad and Robodz, for Disney XD; and “STITCH!” (the new adventures of Stitch from “Lilo & Stitch”) for DISNEY CHANNEL.
Vancouver-born and raised, Brad began acting at a relatively young age and, once in high school, had his first audition for an animated series. This first voice acting gig took the form of a pony named "Ace" in My Little Pony Tales and soon afterwards, he landed his first anime role as "Mousse" in Ranma 1/2. Some of his more notable anime characters include: Light (Death Note), Amuro, Quatre, Dearka, Auel and Setsuna (on their respective Gundam series' - from Mobile Suit to 00 ), Gohan (Dragon Ball Z), Rock (Black Lagoon), Ryuki (The Story of Saiunkoku), Kicker (Transformers: Energon) and Lan (Megaman: NT Warrior).
Amongst many Gundam video game titles, in Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3, you can watch Brad in conversation with himself as both "Setsuna" and "Amuro", as well as the deranged mascot "Slappy" in Capcom's Dead Rising 2. He can also be heard cautiously embracing the Devil Gene as "Jin Kazama" in Street Fighter X Tekken. Newer voice projects include the roles of "Basara" and "B-Shot Ryu" in B-Daman Fireblast, "Saito" in Gintama, the "Ken" character (aka: Kris) in Barbie Video Game Hero, as well as "Ollie" and "Superfan" in "Ratchet & Clank" (the animated feature film).
One of Brad's favorite North American cartoon gigs was playing "Nightcrawler" in the multi Emmy Award winning X-men Evolution, along with roles in other projects like Sonic the Hedgehog, Matchbox: Hero City, Double Dragon, DreamKix, The Little Prince and Superbook. Over the years, Brad has worked on several anime series' including Inu-Yasha, Hamtaro, Kurozuka, Soul Taker, Nurse Witch Komugi, Maison Ikkoku, Hikaru No Go, Infinite Ryvius, Tokyo Underground, Project Arms, Boys Over Flowers, Kimba the White Lion, Shakugan No Shana, Dokkoida!?, Saber Marionette J, Video Girl Ai, Arjuna, Zoids, Flash & Dash, .hack//Roots, Powerpuff Girls Z and Dragon Drive. One of Brad's upcoming anime series titles has him voicing no less than 6 characters.
Along with voice acting, Brad continues to work professionally as a Graphic Designer/Production Artist and, when not at the hockey rink or on the baseball field, enjoys playing drums and guitar (often while doodling in his sketchbook). It should also be noted that Brad is currently involved in a potentially obsessive relationship with chocolate milk.
