U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services officials say Rich Little becomes an American on Friday at a ceremony in Las Vegas.

The 71-year-old Little mimics more than 200 voices, including Johnny Carson, George Burns, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Clint Eastwood and Jack Nicholson. He lives in Las Vegas.

Little toured the United States in 2003 with his show The Presidents, offering impressions of John F. Kennedy, Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton and both Bushes.

Citizenship officials say Little will be naturalized along with six military members, three from Mexico, and others from Kenya, the Philippines and El Salvador.
