John Swasey, aka, the Beer Delivery Guy in Dazed and Confused, has been acting professionally in film, television, and radio since 1987. A native Houstonian, John started down the road of voice acting in animation, anime, and video games in 1997, when he landed his first role in Golden Boy from ADV Films.
Since then, John has gone on to voice hundreds of characters in shows with ADV Films, Funimation, and Illumitoons to name a few. Being more of the character actor type has given John the freedom to voice bazillions of characters. John is the most prolific male voice actor in North America - "too toot". Most recently, John voiced the role of General Disdain in the animated feature film, The Last Flight of the Champion from Omnipulse Entertainment.
Other favorite roles include Jinnouchi in Summer Wars, Kogoro in Sgt. Frog, Gendo Ikari in Neon Genesis Evangelion, Huang in Darker than Black, Vulcan in Orphen, Lord Death in Soul Eater, Gates in Full Metal Panic, Captain Ahab in Hakugei The Legend of Moby Dick, Rikudoh in RahXephon, Van Hohenheim in Fullmetal Alchemist, Sir Crocodile in One Piece, Mister in Coyote Ragtime Show, as well as leading roles in the live action films 2009 Lost Memories, Conduct Zero, Yesterday, Jungle Juice, and the Gamera trilogy.
In 2004, John jumped to the other side of the "mic" to direct. Some of the shows he has directed include Welcome to the N.H.K., AirGear, Wandaba Style, St. Seiya, Shadow Skill, E's Otherwise, Michel, Jinki Extend and Shinobi (live action co-directed with longtime pal, Kyle Jones). Currently John is working on an animated short series with pal Jones called Zeke and Zerlon6.
John loves working in the world of voice acting: both in front of the "mic" and behind the "mic", but never to the side of the "mic"! In addition, John has also voiced thousands of national, regional, and local radio and tv commercials.
