Also an established voice-over artist, Diamantopoulos has lent his voice to numerous national TV and radio campaigns.

Of Greek heritage, he took pride in voicing the ancient Greek narrative in Academy Award Winner Jessica Yu's Protagonist. He has also narrated documentaries for Discovery, Sundance and Travel Channel, and currently voices several characters on Fox's hit show American Dad.
