Kazuhiko Inoue (井上 和彦, Ino'ue Kazuhiko, born March 26, 1954 in Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture) is a Japanese actor, voice actor, and narrator. He is currently the founder and president of the acting and talent school, B-Box, with co-president, Shizuka Ochi. Inoue was married to her, but Ochi revealed on her personal blog that they have divorced sometime in March 2013. His family is publicly known to consist of one son, one daughter, and one grandchild.

His hobbies include various marine sports, wind surfing, bowling, skiing, and snowboarding. Inoue is known for his gentle personality and is well loved by fans for his amicable charisma. He considers several dozens of actors he works with his friends in the industry. Outside of his career, Inoue is also a strong advocate against war and genuinely desires world peace.

When he was nineteen, he was good friends with Daisuke Gōri and they worked together daily during their part-time jobs to enter the voice actor industry. He recalls each of them congratulating one another for whatever role they were cast. The news report he saw of his friend's passing shocked him, and he has stated on his blogs and to the mass media of his disbelief. Most news sources regarding Gōri's death tend to quote Inoue's recollection of his last moments with Gōri, which was a cheery farewell from the bar they were visiting, and how dispirited his friend looked before they parted.

Inoue has performed various characters ranging from either a cool, deep pitch to a screechy, cartoony voice. Since he is a famous name with female fans, he has participated in several CDs and other media catering to them, including various boys love media. Some of his voice roles include Madara (AKA Nyanko-sensei) from Natsume Yujincho, Angeal Hewley in Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, and Kars in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. Within the Japanese dubbing business, he has also voiced Fire Lord Ozai in The Last Airbender, Jack in Lost, and Chuck Noland in Cast Away.
