Kevin Michael Richardson stars in "The Cleveland Show" on FOX as the voice of Cleveland Brown Jr.

A classically-trained actor, Kevin Michael Richardson first gained recognition as one of only eight U.S. high school students selected for the National Foundation for the Arts' "Arts '82" program, winning him a spot on a PBS special directed by the esteemed late John Houseman and a scholarship to Syracuse University. He is very grateful for the opportunities that have been presented to him since.
