Neil Kaplan (born March 9, 1967) is an American voice actor, entertainer and comedian.
Kaplan grew up in San Jose, California. He got his start as a comedian doing impressions of presidents such as Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon. He also impersonated a little known journalist at the time, Dan Rather. He then started work on video games, including many Star Wars titles. From there he went on to do such shows as Power Rangers, Digimon: Digital Monsters, and most recently, Transformers: Robots in Disguise.
One of his most famous voices is Hawkmon from Digimon. His favorite role was the "utility guy" on a show called The Mouse and the Monster, which aired on UPN in 1996–1997. He played stomachs, ghosts, and Sappy the Clown, among dozens of other characters on that show. Kaplan was also once a contestant on the popular comedy game show, Street Smarts. On that appearance he showed off some of his other impressions, including one of Gilbert Gottfried.
Kaplan was invited as a guest to the Power Morphicon (in Los Angeles) in June 2007 as well as August 2010, and to Armageddon (in Australia and New Zealand) in October 2007.
He created the TV show ,The Way it WASN'T!, as well as the graphic novel, I, of the Wolf.
He also voices the main character in the pornographic game BoneCraft which will be released on January 12th.
