Peter New is a voice actor in My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. His most prominent role in the series is as Big McIntosh.

New first became involved in the series at a time when recording for season one had already started. He was among the quickest to be cast in the series; the day he auditioned for Big McIntosh was the same day he recorded Applebuck Season.[1] As part of his audition, New had read an original Big Mac monologue not written for any episode in case the character would have extended dialogue in a future episode.[2]

In My Little Pony: Pony Life, New assumed the role of Discord, replacing John de Lancie after Friendship is Magic.[3]

Outside My Little Pony, New has voiced characters in numerous television series and films, including AirMan in MegaMan NT Warrior, Ian Vashti in Mobile Suit Gundam 00, Sunil Nevla in Littlest Pet Shop, and various supporting roles in InuYasha, Fantastic Four: World's Greatest Heroes, and the Barbie film series.

In live-action, New has starred in Point Blank, Agent Cody Banks, Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and he had guest roles in Kingdom Hospital, Dead Like Me, Stargate SG-1, Psych, Smallville, Fringe, and The Flash.
