"The Force will be with you, always."

A well-known voice actor. He provides the English voice work in Squaresoft's popular video game, Final Fantasy X, as the voice of Tidus (and again in Dissidia: Final Fantasy). He is also known as the voice of Ratchet in the popular Ratchet and Clank video game series from Insomniac Games, (except for the original game, in which Ratchet was voiced by Mikey Kelley); as well as Leonardo from TMNT. Taylor's other large roles include the role of Wooldoor Sockbat on the Comedy Central animated series Drawn Together, voice acting for both Captain Jack Sparrow and Timon in Kingdom Hearts II.

Mr Taylor is perhaps best known for his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars: Clone Wars series as the voice double for Ewan McGregor. Later, Taylor reprised his role as Obi-Wan in the video game adaption of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, Star Wars Battlefront II, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and the series with the same name.

Taylor has also worked as a voice double for actors such as David Spade, Johnny Depp, Michael J. Fox, Nathan Lane, Billy Bob Thornton, Ewan McGregor, and Christopher Walken.

Simply put it, he is truly the Man of a Thousand Voices. He is often compared to his fellow colleagues Tara Strong, Tom Kenny, Grey DeLisle, Frank Welker, John Dimaggio, and Billy West; many anime voice acting regulars like Steve Blum, Crispin Freeman, and Vic Mignogna; and even the legendary voice actor Mel Blanc (which he often compares himself to). You can pretty much hear him nearly anywhere: from commercials to Western Animation and video games without you even noticing it) The only thing missing in the list is Anime voice acting (but ah, that's a whole different story).
