Richard Ian Cox
(Voice of Inuyasha)

Richard Ian Cox has been acting in film and television since the late 1700’s.  Understandably, work was hard to come by in the early days before the invention of either medium.  It wasn’t until the release of the first talkies in 1927 that Richard’s career started to show signs of life.  He first became known to the viewing public with the airing of “The Adventures of the Black Stallion” in 1990.  Richard’s modern career has included regular stints on “Cold Squad”, “Beggars and Choosers”, “Breaker High”, as well as guest starring roles on “Stargate: SG1”, “Stargate: Atlantis”, “Eureka” and films including “Alive”, “R.V.”, “Battle in Seattle”, “Ghost Rider”.

Richard has also enjoyed a varied career in animation . . . well not the animation part, the talking part.  Roles in “Ranma ½”, “Inuyasha”, “Botsmaster”, “Trouble Chocolate”, “First Gundam”, “Mega Man”, “Gundam Seed”, “Hamtaro”, “Gundam 00”, “Being Ian”, “X-Men Evolution”, “Will and Dewitt”, “Care Bears” . . . and a bunch of other stuff has earned Richard a reputation as a guy who knows which end of a mic to speak into.  These days Richard is hard at work trying to solve the current economic crisis.  He’s pretty sure it involves jelly beans.  Check Richard out on Facebook, Twitter, and on his website at www.richardiancox.com.
