Billy West (born April 16, 1952) is a voice actor, best known for his roles on The Ren and Stimpy Show and Futurama.

He voices some of the main characters from Futurama, including Philip J. Fry, Professor Farnsworth, and Dr. Zoidberg.

On The Simpsons, he voiced Zoidberg in The Simpsons Game, and has also voiced Zoidberg, Fry, and Farnsworth in "Simpsorama".

In the Commericals, he has voiced multiple characters in television commercials. These include (but are not limited to):

  • Red, the plain/milk chocolate M&M (1996–present) (after Jon Lovitz's departure from the role in 1996)
  • Buzz, the honey nut bee for Honey Nut Cheerios (1990–2004)
  • An alien for Pentium 4
  • Popeye for Minute Maid
  • Babe Ruth, Mickey Goldmill, and Bruce Lee for Brisk Iced Tea
  • Marfalump, a mascot for Pepsi from 1999 to 2000; created to tie in with the release of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace

West voiced the Speed Racer character in a late 1990s advertisement for Volkswagen, because the commercial's producers could not locate Peter Fernandez, the original voice of Speed. However, the producers did locate Corinne Orr, the original voice for the characters Trixie and Spritle.
