John Edward Kassir (Cryptkeeper) was born on October 24, 1957 in Baltimore, Maryland. He is known for being the voice of The Crypt Keeper on Tales from the Crypt (1989) and Tales from the Cryptkeeper (1993). His big break came in 1983, when he was the comedy champion on Star Search, edging out Sinbad and Rosie O'Donnell for the $100,000 prize. Beyond that, he was the voice of Elliot in Pete's Dragon (2016) and Scrooge McDuck from 2016-2018, and actually appeared on camera (at least partially) in another muddled, broken production with angry, moping script doctor Jeff Hause called Pirate Camp (2007) in which he played Blackbeard's head. As a side (legal) note, he also recorded his "Crypt Keeper" voice for use in the Jekyll & Hyde Club in New York, New York. He is of Syrian and Iraqi descent.

Thor Bishopric (Kevin) was born on September 6, 1963 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. He has worked in the film and television industry since 1969, writing and adapting hundreds of programs for Paramount, HBO, Nelvana, Gumm, Filmoption International, CineGroupe, CBC, Cinar, Prisma and Hanna-Barbera. As an actor, he has performed in films, TV and theatre productions, and lent his voice to more than two thousand animated programs, documentaries, radio dramas and video games. He also works as a voice director, story editor, translator, lyricist and development consultant. His company, Thunderstorm Productions Inc., has provided production services on international TV series and films. He was the National President of ACTRA from 1999 to 2005, and Chairman of the Board of AFBS (Actra Fraternal Benefit Society). So, that's his story... what have you done today?

Rino Romano (Eddie) was born in 1969 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. He has voiced Batman in the animated TV series The Batman, Spider-Man in the animated TV series Spider-Man Unlimited and the PlayStation Dreamcast Nintendo 64 and Game Boy Color video game Spider-Man, Eduardo Rivera in Extreme Ghostbusters, Luis Sera in Resident Evil 4, Scorp in the Skylanders franchise. He was also the original Tuxedo Mask in the '90s English dub of the anime series Sailor Moon, an Revan in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (2003). According to Rino's Wikipedia page, he returned as the character "Eddie" on Tales frpm the Cryptkeeper in the episode 'Cold Blood, Warm Heart/The Spider & the Flies.' It's nice that they bring people back, you know? (Except of course for the writers who created the character in the first place.)

Hadley Kay (Herman) was born on February 22, 1973 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Hadley was discovered by a director at the age of five, and was already a veteran actor at the ripe old age of six. He captured the imagination of Ivan Reitman when he auditioned for Meatballs starring Bill Murray, and won the role of "Bradley." He was then rescued from sure disaster by Christopher Reeve after plummeting over Niagara Falls in Superman II. He has delighted children and adults alike with his starring turns as the voice for the Honey Nut Cheerios Bee, Darkheart in the Care Bears Movies, and everyone's favorite mutt, Scooby Doo, from 1996-1998.
