Jean-Paul Christophe "J. P." Manoux (born June 8, 1969) is an American actor, voice actor, television personality, and comedian best known for his work in multiple Disney productions, including S.T.A.N. in Aaron Stone, Curtis the Caveman and Vice Principal Hackett in Phil of the Future, and the voice of Kuzco in The Emperor's New School (instead of David Spade). He voiced Scrappy Rex in Scooby-Doo. Manoux was also a contestant on Jeopardy!, Family Feud, and Wheel of Fortune.[1]

Early life

Manoux was born Jean-Paul Christophe Manoux in Fresno, California on June 8, 1969.[2][3] He grew up in Santa Barbara, California, the eldest of seven children.


One of Manoux's early on-camera jobs was as a regular performer on The Wayne Brady Show.[4] He went on from there to work extensively in film, television, and commercials, including campaigns for Got Milk? and Fruit of the Loom. Manoux portrayed Dustin Crenshaw in two of the later seasons of ER. Other memorable guest star roles in television series include How I Met Your Mother, Angel, Smallville, Charmed, Scrubs, and Community.

He has played a mime on more than one occasion, briefly on ER (1996), years before he became a recurring character there, and in EuroTrip (2004). He has also made small appearances in two Michael Bay films: Transformers, where he was a man being interviewed on television, and in The Island, where he portrayed a mentally underdeveloped clone.

Manoux has directed episodes of Aaron Stone, Phil of the Future, Mudpit and Spun Out.

He has authored and read two pieces for NPR's All Things Considered. Back in 2000, he provided commentary on the Screen Actors Guild strike as a striking actor and refused to do scab work.[5]

A permanent resident of Canada, he splits his time between Los Angeles and Toronto, where he recently worked on the CTV sitcom Spun Out.


Manoux and George Brant wrote Tights on a Wire (1997).[6]


On January 27, 2015, Manoux turned himself in to Toronto Police and was charged with one count of voyeurism. Two people who were staying in his home while he was out of town discovered a home security camera in the living room and approached police.[7] On July 30, 2015, the charges of voyeurism were dropped.[8] He is currently undergoing trial for two counts of mischief relating to the camera.
