I've been waiting over five years hoping that I'll be able to hear Ed Blaylock in a role that allows him to use a British accent. I'm sure it would sound great but such an opportunity rarely shows itself. The only upcoming Dallas dub that even uses the British dialect is Black Butler: Book of Circus but there aren't any real sufficient older characters in that show that would fit Blaylock's voice besides maybe a random background character. He would have to be cast as well which rarely happens more then a few times a year(which is complete nonsense in itself) It may happen one day depending on the ADR Director and the show itself. Bill Jenkins is the other actor that I know without a doubt can pull off a flawless British accent but just hasn't had the chance to show off yet. In good time hopefully I'll hear it from both of these talented actors in the near future.

@IAMTHEVASTUNIVERSE I don't know if its just me but I've always thought Ed at times kind of reminds me of an accentless or rather an American sounding Sean Connery.

It would be cool to hear him in an English accent or any accent really, or in more things in general.

Happy birthday, Ed.

Excellent as King Bradley and Sengoku.

A shame he doesn't get many roles.

Happy Birthday Ed Blaylock!

Fuhrer King Bradley is such a epic character in just about every way. The way he performs his friendly easy outgoing reasonable authority figure feels so genuine that when you find out its all a facade, not only is this twist effective, he becomes a legitimately scary and unstoppable force to be reckoned with.

His performances in Baccano!, Fairy Tail and Space Dandy were also very good despite how brief those roles were.

It's such a shame FUNimation does not call upon Ed Blaylock to voice in more of their dubs, he is easily one of the best actors in the entire talent pool, Hopefully they start using him more often. I'm really hoping they bring Ed in to replace the late Bob Magruder as the voice of Igneel and the Narrator on Fairy Tail, due to how similar they both sound that and the fact Hidekatsu Shibata also voices these characters in the Japanese version.

Happy birthday, Ed Blaylock! His Fuhrer King Bradley performance in FMA Brotherhood is genuinely scary. He can switch between charming and inspiring to cold and imposing in the blink of an eye, and to me he pretty much steals the show in every scene he's in.

He has so much presence in his roles. It's too bad he doesn't get cast more because in my opinion he's one of Funi's best actors.

I'm almost positive he's done some commercials for Lifelock. Indeed a great talent for Funimation.
