James Fox


Peter Coyote
Wild Dog Productions


in the early '80s, Peter began doing voice-overs, which has led to a very successful side venture, now numbering over seventy films.His mellow voice, often compared to Henry Fonda's, is a talent that won him an Emmy in 1992 for his narration of The Meiji Revolution episode, part of the PBS American Experience ten-part series called The Pacific Century. He continues to lend his rich voice to narrations for commercials, such as Brita and Oracle, as well as television documentaries and also donates his voice to films that support issues close to his heart.

He is a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, The Screen Actor's Guild, American Federation of Radio and Television Artists, Actor's Equity, and The Player's Club, a professional club for performers and artists in New York City. In 1997 he was a delegate to the Democratic National Convention and covered the proceedings for Mother Jones Magazine.

Peter maintains his political interests in a number of ways. He is currently a board member of Baykeepers, a proactive organization which tracks pollution and polluters in the San Francisco Bay and aggressively pursues cessation of damage to the Bay.

Coyote has performed in European films, speaks French and Spanish and especially enjoys returning to London and Paris. His home has been in Marin County in Northern California since the early '70s. An avid outdoorsman, Peter considers either a week passing without fishing, or a year without at least one month living rough, a waste. He is a passionate songwriter and guitarist and amateur photographe. He considers his completely re-built 1964 Dodge 4x4 Town Wagon, that he's owned since 1969, his longest-lasting addiction.
