Happy Birthday Crispin Freeman!

Easily one of the greatest voice actors to have ever dubbed anime, his involvement in a dub automatically makes it worthwhile the watch. It's a shame they don't unionize as much dubs as they used to, they really should do so a little bit more often.

I have so many favourite roles from his work in anime including Alucard, Zelgadis, Togusa, Shizuo Heiwajima, Kirei Kotomine, Jeremiah Gottwald, Haji, Van Argiano and Holland Novak, I also like his voices for Electro, Scott Lang/Ant-Man, Winter Soldier, Red Arrow, Firefly, Breakdown and despite having never played those games his Sundowner and Albedo Piazzolla sound gleefully wicked.

I reckon that he should do an awesome bass voice from mega man because it's no brainer he's really skilled at doing anti-heroes.

While there are exceptions(Jin Uzuki yech) I'm pretty surprised the voice actor who voiced so many deep voiced characters looks so young

@HienFan He looks quite a bit younger than he actually is. 42 isn't old by any means, but he looks a lot younger.

I just realized that he and Tom Hiddleston share a birthday.

Both are talented, intelligent, and have an army of fangirls.

Coincidence?

This man is disturbingly skilled. What more can I say? Well, I'll say one thing: WHY WASN'T THIS GUY SEPHIROTH!!!!?
NCZ (Admin)
said at 10:38 AM on Tue Jan 1 2013
@Aussieroth At least he got to be Rude and Setzer.
Galactic_Cyrus
said at 9:07 AM on Sat Sep 28 2013
@Aussieroth If he used a slightly deeper variant of his Itachi Uchiha, then he'd nail it. I heard he did an audition for Sephiroth and you've heard his rendition. Where can I find this?
Aussieroth
said at 9:32 PM on Mon Sep 30 2013
@Galactic_Cyrus https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9AYcwsaiIA 6:00 he's not even trying and he's still perfect for the role.
Aussieroth
said at 9:32 PM on Mon Sep 30 2013
@NCZ perhaaaaps but he still should've been Sephiroth.

His Setzer was fascinating though.
Galactic_Cyrus
said at 9:57 PM on Mon Sep 30 2013
@Aussieroth Ah, exactly what I expected to hear: a slightly deeper variant of his Itachi Uchiha. And not too different from Newbern's take in AC. Which means he'd be perfect.

Aside from Sephiroth, Setzer is the only FF character I think his voice is just perfect for. His Rude was great too, but is it just me or did he sound like Kevin Conroy with that voice?
Aussieroth
said at 1:49 AM on Tue Oct 1 2013
@Galactic_Cyrus Honestly, I think George would've been better for Setzer (or even Vincent for that matter) and... yeah you heard, a slightly deeper or rather "huskier" itachi.. it could have been perfect.

Rude... yeah, but it was basically another version of Freeman's Alucard. Again: Miscast. In my op: Rude should've been voiced by Phil LaMarr.
Galactic_Cyrus
said at 12:27 PM on Tue Oct 1 2013
@Aussieroth George would've worked, but I always hear Crispin's voice like he has in the Holland Novak clip for Setzer. For Vincent, I can't imagine George at all. I liked Steve Blum in the role (in AC at least), but I'd rather it be someone like Robin Atkins Downe doing a Vincent Price-styled voice. (The character's name is VINCENT and he turns into horror creatures: it's the only type of voice I could ever hear for him!) And yes, that voice would have been a perfect fit for Sephiroth.

It's his Alucard minus the scariness. Phil LaMarr would be great, but thanks to Crispin's take, I can never get the Kevin Conroy-esque voice out of my head when I think of Rude's dialogue.
