Masterful dubbing - a form of acquiescence

Due to all the pushback I recieved on my other post regarding the following statement:

English overdubs are ALWAYS bad - almost without exception

I would like to put forth a call to the community!

Let's hear about the masterful English Voice actors! I'm hoping Nina (a VA himself) and possibly some of his VAA comrads will weigh in.

Each reply should contain 3 sections:

  1. The Name of One and ONLY one English Language Voice Actor
  2. At least a little bit of back story on the voice actor including some of their dubbing work
  3. What you like about their voice acting, and why you like it.

Then we can all vote on the replies to find the TRUE MASTER of voice acting

If you want to submit more than one voice actor just leave a new reply for each of them, but no duplicates please. If you have something to add, leave a comment!

Vic Mignogna

history:

He has been dubbing forever and is known for such works as the world of warcraft commercial, Full metal Alchemist, Ouran High School Host Club, Soul Eater, Yu Yu Hakusho, and many, many more...

why I love vic:

I like vic because of his fans... they're so down to earth, and mature. Have you ever loved something because the fans are just so great? I don't think I've ever seen a crazed vis mignogna fan! it's truly amazing ;)

Ok I've demonstrated the format. I'm done being a dick ~_^

Crispin Freeman

**

History:

Crispin has been doing voice acting for some time. His list of credits spans over anime and viodegames, as well as feature movies. Some of his more prominent roles are Alucard, from both the Hellsing TV and Hellsing Ultimate OVAs, Zelgadis from every iteration of the Slayers franchise, and Tsume from Wolf's Rain.

Why I love Crispin:

Well, for starters ... he's Alucard! He is one of the few voice actors that when I hear his voice in place of his japanese counterpart, I don't want to vomit. He has a deep, rich voice that gives new meaning to the term "bad-ass". I have yet to find a title he has acted in, that even if I did not like the show itself, I at least enjoyed his work

Here's a good listing of what he's done IMDB: Crispin Freeman
