Werner Herzog Stipetić (German pronunciation: [ˈʋɛɐ̯nɐ ˈhɛɐ̯tsoːk ˈstɪpɛtɪtʃ]; born September 5, 1942), known as Werner Herzog, is a German film director, producer, screenwriter, and actor; and an opera director.

Herzog is considered one of the greatest figures of the New German Cinema, along with Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Margarethe von Trotta, Volker Schlöndorff, Werner Schröter, and Wim Wenders. Herzog's films often feature heroes with impossible dreams, people with unique talents in obscure fields, or individuals who find themselves in conflict with nature. French filmmaker François Truffaut once called Herzog "the most important film director alive" and American film critic Roger Ebert stated that Herzog "has never created a single film that is compromised, shameful, made for pragmatic reasons or uninteresting. Even his failures are spectacular."

He provided the voice of Walter Hotenhoffer in the episodes "The Scorpion's Tale" and "Crystal Blue-Haired Persuasion", the voice of Dr. Lund in the episode "Screenless", and appeared as himself in the episode "Mother and Child Reunion".
