The multi-faceted voice talents of Jim Ward have provided the actor a long and prolific career in show business in a variety of different mediums. He began working on television in the mid to late 1980s, finding recurring voice work on such animated adventure shows like "Mighty Mouse, the New Adventures" and "The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!," and in an uncredited impersonation of "Knight Rider"'s K.I.T.T., the talking car, for two episodes of the sitcom "Diff'rent Strokes." Ward spent the 1990s lending voice work for the characters of Stretch for the spooky comedies "Casper: A Spirited Beginning" and "Casper Meets Wendy" and Angus for the series "The Secret Files of the SpyDogs." He hit his stride in the 2000s with continual work on Nickelodeon's odd fairy comedy "The Fairly OddParents" as Chet Ubetcha in 38 episodes. The decade brought Ward more success, with recurring work on the sci-fi cartoon "Ben 10" and the comic book cartoon "Wolverine and the X-Men." His voice can be heard in nearly 100 video games, and he is the sidekick for Stephanie Miller on the host's liberal-leaning nationally syndicated radio show, where Ward does impressions of various political and media figures.
