Russ Leatherman

Russ Leatherman is the famous voice of Moviefone, the nations most popular movie guide. Known for his trademark greeting, “Hellooo and Welcome to Moviefone!”, the greeting has been parodied on hundreds of programs including The Simpsons, Saturday Night Live, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, the 2005 Academy Awards, VH1’s I Love the 90s, Fair Game, and was the subject of a famous Seinfeld episode.

As a movie critic, Leatherman's reviews are seen on CNN, CNN Headline News, ABC-TV, CBS's The Early Show, Fox News, MSNBC, NPR, the nationally syndicated The Daily Buzz morning show, and heard on a number of top radio stations nationwide including Z100 in New York, KRTH-FM in Los Angeles and the nationally syndicated Westwood One, USA Radio Network, and ABC Radio Network.

Leatherman has appeared on national talk shows such as The Late Show with David Letterman, The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Opie and Anthony, The Howard Stern Show, The Caroline Rhea Show and many others. He has also been profiled in the pages of Time Magazine, People, Entertainment Weekly, Life, Vanity Fair and The New York Times.

Leatherman co-founded the Moviefone company in 1989 and has been the voice of the character "Mr. Moviefone" from the start. Leatherman is a former University of Idaho student and DJ (where he received his degree in Television and Radio) and uses an over-the-top, "Dick Clark on crack" spin when acting as Mr. Moviefone.

Moviefone was purchased by AOL in 2000.
