Most people know Warren Buffett as the most prosperous and savvy investor in the world, but how many people know Warren Buffett, the voice actor?

Investor turned voice actor?

As the chairman of Berkshire Hathaway, Warren knows his fair share about finances and the stock market. Little did we know that his own voice-over star is on it's way up with DIC Entertainment.

Warren will provide candid voice-overs for a new direct-to-video animated childrens' series called "The Secret Millionaire's Club," offering up lessons on money and financing to kids.

After pondering this for a moment, one might wonder why Warren Buffett was selected to record for this new venture.

Berkshire Hathaway just happens to be located in Omaha, Nebraska - conveniently, the same city where DIC Entertainment produces voice-overs for many of its kids' TV shows and direct to video DVDs. Sources say that a theatre for children and other facilities are also located in Omaha. The connection between DIC and Buffett leaves us asking 'why not' :)

Further research revealed that Warren Buffett as a cartoon host was an idea that sprang from previous DIC work for Berkshire Hathaway and Buffett. DIC produces animated spoofs, featuring Buffett, which open Berkshire Hathaway's shareholder meetings.

Do you know of any other prominent business people that have performed as voice actors for educational purposes? If so, please leave a comment and share your insight.

Cordially,

Stephanie
