Guillermo del Toro provides the voice of Moustache Man/Comandate in "Puss in Boots" and is also an executive producer of the animated film.

Since winning the Critic's Prize at the 1993 Cannes Film Festival and nine Mexican Academy Awards for his first feature "Cronos," Guillermo del Toro has established himself among the most critically and commercially successful international writer-directors.

Del Toro has built his career by moving between independent, Spanish-language films and increasingly big budget studio productions. His films include "Mimic," "The Devil's Backbone," "Blade 2," "Hellboy" and its sequel, "Hellboy 2: The Golden Army."

His 2006 film "Pan's Labyrinth" received six Academy Award nominations (including Best Foreign Language Film and Best Original Screenplay for Del Toro) and won three Oscars. It was also the recipient of three BAFTA Awards, seven Goya Awards, a Golden Globe nomination for Best Foreign Language Film, and was selected by the National Society of Film Critics as the best film of the year. It is the highest-grossing Spanish language film of all time in the U.S. and the fifth highest-grossing foreign language film in U.S. box office history, with $37.6 million in box office receipts.

In 2007, Del Toro produced the Spanish supernatural thriller "The Orphanage," which is currently the highest-grossing local language film in Spain's history, with over $80 million in worldwide box office. His other producing credits include "Rudo y Cursi," directed by Carlos Cuaron and starring Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna, and Alejandro Gonzalez-Inarritu's "Biutiful," which was featured in competition at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival and received Academy Award nominations for Best Foreign Language Film and Best Actor.

In 2010, Del Toro named DreamWorks Animation his home for animated feature film projects. In addition to his work on "Puss in Boots," DreamWorks Animation has acquired from Del Toro "Trollhunters" (working title), an original project from which the Company plans to produce a 3D animated feature film, which will be written and directed by Del Toro himself. The exciting new story of "Trollhunters" is being kept entirely under wraps at the studio.

Apart from his film work, Del Toro is co-authoring the horror trilogy The Strain with acclaimed novelist Chuck Hogan. The first book in the series was published by William Morrow in 2009. The second volume, The Fall, debuted at #8 on The New York Times Bestseller List in October 2010.
