Happy Birthday Bill Jenkins.

In addition to being great as Number 48/Older Slicer Brother, I thought he was a Perfect fit as Manfred Von Karma in the Ace Attorney Anime.

Happy Birthday Bill Jenkins! His Manfred Von Karma is pretty great IMO. Definitely rather close to the voice I always imagined him having!

Happy Late Birthday Bill Jenkins!!!

Still awesome as Number 48/Older Slicer Brother!

I especially loved his speech in '03 about how only now were him and his brother treated as humans when they were living suits of armor, and the irony of the whole thing.

Plus his performance as the Grand Elder was very well done and moving in DBZ Kai.

Happy Birthday, Bill Jenkins! His performance as Laomoto Khan was so deliciously antagonistic. On top of that, he was also great as Grand Elder, Keel Lorenz, Number 48/Older Slicer Brother, King of Xerxes, the Narrator on One Piece, and God of Chow.

Happy Birthday Bill Jenkins!

My top 5 favourite roles of his are:

1.) Number 48/Older Slicer Brother (Fullmetal Alchemist)
2.) Grand Elder (Dragon Ball Z Kai)
3.) Yosuke Hinoki (Jormungand)
4.) Jude Heartfilia (Fairy Tail)
5.) King of Xerxes (Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhoood)

also does anyone else kind of get a bit of a Gregory Peck like vibe from his voice, I find they sound remarkably similar.

I find it quite interesting that Bill Jenkins has become the successor to the late Ed Blaylock in the role of Sebas Tian in Overlord's second season.

While I don't really watch Overlord, I did check out a sample of Bill's work as Sebas Tian and it really took me by surprise how fitting he was in the role, I mean you can still hear Bill's voice in it but he still actually manages to actually do a great emulation of Ed's voice.

Definitely an interesting example of his range in a way I've never heard him before, I would not mind if Bill replaced Ed in all of the ongoing roles he had at the time.

I'm glad one of the more underrated Funimation VA's got to be the replacement for another one of Funimation's best and most underrated VA's who sadly is no longer with us.

and while I've never watched Joker Game, it's really cool that not only he got to voice the lead character Yuuki, but also get nominated for a BTVA award, last year for the 2016 BTVA Anime Awards.

I'm glad Bill's been getting more work and recognition as of late.

Happy Birthday Bill Jenkins!

Happy Birthday Bill Jenkins!

He has such an awesome rich sounding voice, so deep, so smooth and very regal sounding perfect for Narrating and charismatic older characters.

I love his performances as Number 48/Older Slicer Brother, King of Xerxes, Grand Elder, Jude Heartfilia, Hiromu Hidaka, Yosuke Hinoki and God of Chow.

Seriously he needs to be cast more often, his voice is too good to not use.

Happy birthday Bill Jenkins the Richard Newman of Texas.

He has such a regal and commanding-sounding voice yet he is rather underused. Hope he gets some more roles in the future because we need more characters voiced by him. If anything, if a Transformers series ever got recorded in Dallas, he would make an awesome Megatron

Happy Birthday, Bill Jenkins! If an anime is owned by Funimatioon and has a narrator, odds are, it will be him and with good reason. His voice is so resonant and fatherly.

Bill Jenkins digs the tunes of The Ramones and is an avid fan of Michael Caine & The late Peter O'Toole. Bill is a competent actor with one of the most memorable deep voices in the voice over medium. I feel that Funimation isn't using his talent to its fullest potential only casting him in a few roles a year but they also aren't casting Ed Blaylock, Kenny Green, Bradley Campbell, Christine Auten, Jennifer Seaman or Jerome Fifty-Seven enough for my liking either. Its a recurring issue I've seen with Funimation's casting when it comes to their dubs over the last few years. An issue that hopefully be be fixed over time.

Has an awesome booming kingly voice, rich with wisdom and power. Like a mix of Sirs Sean Connery and Christopher Lee.
