It’s back for a fourth series but who voices Frank’s dad in F Is for Family? He’ll be no stranger to fans of a certain TV masterwork.
Netflix has absolutely killed it with the content so far this year.
This perception may have something to do with the fact that many of us have spent more time with our eyes on the box thanks to lockdown. However, upon reflecting on the shows and films they’ve offered over the last few months, we’re just so impressed.
Fortunately, there are no signs of disappointment again this month, especially if you’re an animation enthusiast.
Why? Well, the highly anticipated fourth season of F Is for Family has finally arrived!
Created by Bill Burr and Michael Price, the series first premiered back in 2015 and audiences were quick to fall in love with the utterly hilarious Murphy Family.
It’s no surprise to see more talent come aboard for the latest batch of episodes.
Netflix: Who voices Frank’s dad in F Is for Family?
In F Is for Family, the character of Frank’s dad is voiced by Jonathan Banks.
The 73-year-old American actor does a stellar job of bringing William Murphy to life; let’s be honest, our protagonist’s dad is exactly how we expected.
Many audiences were quick to recognise the voice for a major reason…
He’s best known for reprising the part of Mike Ehrmantraut throughout the iconic series Breaking Bad, as well as Better Call Saul.
It’s also worth mentioning that he returned in the hugely satisfying film sequel, El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie.
Jonathan Banks: Previous roles
There’s much more to Jonathan’s career than Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul.
According to IMDb, he first appeared on TV in a 1976 episode of How the West Was Won (he played Woodward).
Moving into the eighties he landed the role of Gunderson in the classic 1980 comedy film Airplane! On the other hand, nostalgic film fans may also remember that he played Deputy Brent in Joe Dante’s 1984 horror-comedy, Gremlins.
Other notable film roles include Beverly Hills Cop (Zack), Boiling Point (Max), Dark Blue (James Barcomb), 48 Hrs (Algren), Reign Over Me (Stelter), Identity Thief (Paul), Horrible Bosses 2 (Detective Hatcher), Mudbound (Pappy McAllan) and The Commuter (Walt).
As for television, he’s also starred in Community (Professor Hickey/Major Dick), Dexter (FBI Deputy Director Max Adams), Day Break (Shadow Man/Conrad Detweiler), Fired Up (Guy Mann) and Wiseguy (Frank McPike).
