Even those who don't recognize Scott Weinger's face might still recognize his voice. He provided the voice of Aladdin in Disney's Aladdin, as well as in countless direct-to-video sequels and an animated TV show. Weinger first caught some attention with a two-episode appearance on the drama Life Goes On in 1989. Following the success of Aladdin in 1992, Weinger found a seemingly never-ending demand for his talent. Outside myriad Disney projects that employed him to continue providing the voice of Aladdin, like Disney's House of Mouse and Aladdin video games, Weinger has also found success in other projects. He played Officer Rubin on the sitcom What I Like About You in 2006, which he also wrote. Weinger also helped pen the tawdry nighttime soap Privileged in 2008.
