Mark Justin Roiland (born February 21, 1980) is an American actor, writer, television director and producer. He voiced Oscar in Fish Hooks,[1] and the Earl of Lemongrab in Adventure Time. He is also the co-creator and executive producer of Rick and Morty, in which he voiced the two title characters Rick Sanchez and Morty Smith. Roiland voiced The Delicious One in the 2D-animated commercials of Wienerschnitzel.

In August 2020, Roiland was arrested for domestic battery and false imprisonment for an incident that happened in January 2020. He pled not guilty and was released on bail.[2] After news of his arrest was made public, many people came forward to say that Roiland had abused and sexually harassed them and that he was also texting minors in a predatory way.[3]

On January 24, 2023, Roiland was fired from Rick & Morty and his voice roles were recast.[4] The charges against him were dropped in March 2023.[5]
