George Buza is a US-born Canadian actor who is best known for voicing Hank McCoy, aka Beast, on X-Men: The Animated Series and on the critically acclaimed 2024 revival series, X-Men ’97 on Disney+.

George Buza’s first role was an uncredited appearance on the 1970s TV series Kung Fu, which starred David Carradine. Since then, he has appeared on a variety of television series, including The Littlest Hobo, The Twilight Zone, and Friday the 13th: The Series. He starred as Turner Edison on YTV’s Maniac Mansion, had a recurring role on the Red Green Show as Dwight Cardiff, and played Chief Jake McKenna on Honey, I Shrunk the Kids: The TV Show. However, most fans will recognize him for his portrayal of Doubar, Sinbad’s older brother, from the 90s series The Adventures of Sinbad. He also appeared as Lenny "The Brain" Lepinski on the TV series The Last Chapter, alongside Roy Dupuis and Michael Ironside, which was loosely based on the Quebec Biker War of the 1990s.

His film roles include one of the Kzamm tribe in Quest for Fire (1981), Stuckmore in Men with Brooms (2002), and in A Christmas Horror Story (2015), the William Shatner starrer that saw Buza’s Santa fight Krampus. He also had a small appearance as the trucker that gives Anna Paquin’s Rogue a ride to Canada, in the first live action X-Men (2000).

His other voice work includes Chief Chirpa on the 1985 Star Wars cartoon Ewoks, as well as various voices on Star Wars: Droids, Scaredy Squirrel, Franklin and Friends, and Knights of the Zodiac.
