Ian James Corlett is a Canadian animation voice actor, screenwriter, television producer, and musician. He is the creator of Studio B Productions’ animated series Being Ian and Yvon of the Yukon.
In addition to programming some drum tracks and helping with some computer sequences on Queensrÿche’s album Operation: Mindcrime, and also selling the band some music gear in the 1980s, Corlett also lent his voice to several animated series produced/dubbed in Canada. His most notable voice roles included the title character of the Mega Man TV show, Cheetor in Beast Wars: Transformers, Glitch-Bob in ReBoot, and Andy Larkin in What’s with Andy? Another notable, yet brief starring role of Corlett’s was Goku in Funimation/Saban’s original dub of Dragon Ball Z. Corlett has also lent his voice to less known DIC Entertainment shows such as Super Duper Sumos and Sonic Underground. He also voiced Mr. Cramp in The Cramp Twins. In Salty’s Lighthouse he played Ten Cents, O.J., Zip, Zebedee and Lord Stinker. Corlett is currently set to portray Sly Cooper in the upcoming film of the same name.
Though a coincidence, Corlett who voiced Dr. Wily in DIC’s video-game oriented cartoon Captain N: The Game Master would later voice his nemesis Mega Man in the Ruby-Spears cartoon adaptation of the games.
He currently lives in Vancouver with his wife and two children. Both children, Phillip Corlett and Claire Corlett, have done voice work for two different animated series, Dinosaur Train and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, respectively.
