‘American Dad!’ Voice Actor Puts Himself Into His Role

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Most voiceover actors aren’t recognized when they go out on the street, but that’s not the case for Jeff Fischer.

He’s the 30-something actor who voices the character on American Dad! also named Jeff Fischer which is drawn to look just like him.

Fischer says a friend of his is one of the writer/producers for the show and wrote the part with him in mind. Despite that, the Fox network still made him come in an audition for the part.

Fischer says, “I thought, ‘This is typical; Only in L.A. would someone else play a part written for me.’”

Luckily, Fischer got the gig, and while the character’s “vibe and attitude” is genuinely his, he says he doesn’t live in a van and isn’t a pushover boyfriend like his animated self is.

Fischer considers himself lucky because as he explains the normal order of stardom, “First you’re famous, then they animate you.”
