Corey Gregg Burton (born August 3, 1955) is an American voice actor who provided the voice for several Disney animated characters, as well as characters from Star Wars: The Clone Wars (including Count Dooku, Cad Bane and Ziro the Hutt) and other cartoons. He has a wide vocal range from voicing high characters, raspy characters and Baritone voices. His Baritone voice is the reason he took over Tony Jay's roles.

Corey has done alot of narration work as well. In 2000 he was called in to dub over Deems Taylor's narration in Fantasia. This was done as when the restoration team was preparing Fantasia, some of Deems' narration was missing or in too bad of condition to be publicly released. So Corey redubbed all of the films dialogue to give it a consistent flow. He has also narrated several Disney documentaries and bonus features such as The Story Behind Fun and Fancy Free, Bambi: The Magic Behind the Masterpiece and The Jungle Book: The Making of a Musical Masterpiece.

He received an Annie Award for his work as Ludwig Von Drake in House of Mouse, an Annie nomination for his voice work as Captain Hook in Return to Never Land, and Jake and The Never Land Pirates. He also took over for the late Joe Ranft as the voice of Jacques from Finding Nemo and will likely play the role in the upcoming Finding Nemo sequel.
