Happy Birthday Dante Basco!

What hasn't already been said about him as Zuko? it really is one of the best performances I've heard in a western cartoon. It really helps that Zuko is a well written character with a great arc allowing him to really give a well rounded performance as a angsty (anti)-villain, as an aloof drifter, an atoner and eventually a hero in his own right. I can't praise this performance enough. It was pretty cool that they got him to voice Iroh in Korra, it was neat little bit of fan-service.

I also like his Jake Long, even if the character is a bit grating at times.

Ever notice that he usually dies in his live-action roles? lLike in Hook and Fist of the North Star?

Fun Fact: In the comic homestuck there's a troll by the name of Rufioh. the whole character was a giant homage to Rufio, the character from the movie Hook who was played by Basco himself. Basco actually reads homestuck and said he liked the character.
