Career

Jackson is known for providing the voice for the serial killer "Ghostface" in the Scream franchise. He has also appeared in animated films and television series like The Walt Disney Company's The Book of Pooh. He also voiced the primate supervillain Mojo Jojo and the Rowdyruff Boy Butch on The Powerpuff Girls.

Jackson has also played an active role in the video game industry; voicing heroes for Galleon and Baldur's Gate, robots in Thrillville: Off the Rails and working for several Star Wars and Star Trek titles. On top of that, he provides voices for all the original cats on the Catz virtual pet program. He has contributed to Final Fantasy X and King's Quest VII and has done educational programs for both The Learning Company and Broderbund. For American McGee's Alice and its sequel, Alice: Madness Returns, he has also provided the voices for the Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter, the Dormouse and the Jabberwock. He played the tyrant Colonel Nohman from Zone of the Enders and Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner. He also voiced John O'Conner in Delphine Software International's Fade to Black.

Jackson voiced Mr. Mucus in Mucinex ads for ten years, originating the rough New Yorker characterization in 2004.[2]

On October 10, 2017, Keke Palmer confirmed in an interview that Jackson, who voiced Ghostface in the film series, would return for the third season of the slasher television series Scream, replacing Mike Vaughn, who served as the voice for two characters, the Lakewood Slasher in the first two seasons and the Shallow Grove Slasher in the Halloween special episodes following the second season.[3] The season premiered on VH1 on July 8, 2019.[4]

Jackson is set to reprise his voice role as Ghostface in the upcoming fifth Scream film, which was directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett.[5] The film will be released on January 14, 2022.[6][7]
