"Texas native Troy Baker has recently risen to be one of the most prolific actors in video games. In 2013 alone, his performances as Joel in "Game of the Year" The Last of Us, Booker DeWitt in Bioshock Infinite and even The Joker in Batman: Arkham Origins quickly caught the eye of both fans and media alike, landing several nominations and awards including Spike's VGX, DICE and BAFTA.
He was even featured in Entertainment Weekly's "Best of 2013" issue. Troy also plays bow-wielding Avenger "Hawkeye" in both Disney's Marvel Avengers Assemble and Ultimate Spiderman. An avid gamer, comic book nerd and cartoon fanatic, Troy says that "being a part of something you're going to geek out over later is the best part of the job".
- I play make-believe for a living."
