You surely recognized it in "The Fury of the dragon", "Expandable 2", "Missing 3", "The Godfather", "The Godfather 2", and many other productions.

But Bernard Tiphaine was also a voice actor in cartoons and video games.

From 1999 to 2003, he was the voice of Bender, the robot from the cartoon "Futurama", created by Matt Groening, to whom we owe the Simpsons.

He was also Anton Ego, the intractable food critic in “Ratatouille”.

Finally, he was also Dr. Finkelstein, in "The Nightmare Before Christmas".
