Born in the Bronx, New York, Richardson was one of only eight American high school students who were chosen to join the "Arts '82" program that was founded and run by of the National Foundation for the Arts. This helped him to get a scholarship to Syracuse University.
A classically trained actor, Richardson lent his deep baritone voice to characters in popular movies like "Mortal Kombat" and "Matrix Revolutions". He also had a small role as a police officer in the movie "Clerks 2".
However, Richardson found his true calling in voice acting. His thunderous voice made him the ideal choice to voice villainous characters in animated TV shows. Starting his voice dubbing career by providing the voice of Mayor Tilton in the animated TV show "The Mask", Richardson went on to work in numerous animated movies and shows.
Some of his well-known works include "The New Batman Adventures" (1997), "Pokemon" (1998), "Powerpuff Girls" (1998), "Voltron: The Third Dimension" (1998), "Family Guy", Lilo & Stitch (2002), as well as "Lilo & Stitch" TV series, "Codename Kids Next Door" (2002), Batman VS Dracula (2005) (V), where he voiced Joker, "Mummy The Animated Series" (2003), TMNT (2007) as General Aguila, "Transformers Animated" (2007) as Omega Supreme and Batman: Gotham Knight (2008), as Lucius Fox.
