The first thing you might recognize about Edward Herrmann is his voice. As a popular narrator for The History Channel and PBS and a spokesman for Dodge, he has definitely developed his vocal talents, while also playing roles in Here Come the Munsters, Gilmore Girls, Annie, and The Great Gatsby.

But Herrmann has also performed with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in their 2008 Christmas concert and in the 2012 movie Christmas Oranges, based on a beloved Christmas children's book. Herrmann plays the strict orphanage keeper, Mr. Crampton.
