(On the late Chris Latta)

"Chris is a strange, interesting, eclectic guy. We were friends. He was this terrific creative force, but like a lot of creative forces he a lot of energy pent up that came out in different ways. He was a powerhouse, on mic and off the mic, and I only have happy memories of working with him. I've seen him lose his temper in character and out of character, but that's where that energy springs from. He was a terrific guy."

(On acting)

"I like them all for different reasons... I think they all require translations, they're all different sizes. On camera, certainly in Hollywood, is the land of being told repeatedly to do less. Voice-over and Animation is the land of being told to do "Whatever you want". The more you give the animator, the more the animator says "Thank you". The technical aspect of on camera work, and even stage work, no matter where they want you, that's where you are supposed to be. Now the difference between stage and television or film, traditionally, is you actually have time to do it, run it, add tech elements... The joke in television is the day that a series is canceled and you go looking for your parking space the next day and it already has another name on it. Everything happens fast, production happens at breakneck speed. The assumption is that you will be there ready, with lines on marking. Everything happens so fast that if your mind is not on full alert the whole time, it will run over you. It's a very pressured situation. If you're recording something on tape, audio wise, if it goes wrong, or somebody laughs, or something falls and makes some noise... it's all retrievable, there is a safety about it. On a TV or film set, you've got 500 people all waiting for you to get it right so they can move to the next location. That's a very pressured situation... Not that it's not fulfilling, but I love voicing, I love it."

(On Voice Acting)

"I'm all about diving into the character and trying to see the world through the character's eyes, so I can't even answer the question. I think I share elements with every character I've ever done, but for me its all about putting on new clothes and see what those clothes feel like."

Awesome VA. Definitely want to hear him in newer stuff nowadays as well. I have fond memories of Odie, Eeyore, & Wild Thornberries. Wish Gregg were in more stuff; he's so talented & frankly he's quite underrated.

Happy Birthday Gregg Berger,

He's incredible in his voice work as Grimlock, Odie and Orson.

At the same time, it's great to see that he's still continuing gaining more work with his recent appearances as Stockade in Transformers: Robots in Disguise and his reprisal as General Kalani in Star Wars Rebels.

Happy birthday Gregg Berger. My favorite classic VA.

He's got a distinct and awesome gruff voice. My favorite role of his is Captain Blue from Viewtiful Joe. I hope one day there's a Captain Blue voice compare here so I can explain why he was perfect for the character.

Happy Birthday Gregg Berger!

Another great VA's who ruled most 80's kids childhood and still continues to voice act to this day.

Obviously Grimlock is my favourite role of his, his work in the Sunbow cartoon is classic and hilarious and his work in the more recent games has been phenomenal. Personally I prefer the more Hulk-like Grimlock voice he did in Fall of Cybertron and Rise of the Dark Spark, but both performances and takes are awesome in my books.

I also loved his performances as Long Haul, Skyfire, Outback, Lockdown, Odie, Orson, Herman Post, Spirit, The Thing, Mysterio, Mole Man, Beast, Blob, Kingpin, Kraven the Hunter, Hunter the Cheetah, Ripto, Leo and he does make a good Eeyore all things considered.

I'm glad to see Gregg got another role in the Transformers franchise this past year.

Him voicing Stockade in RID is without a doubt one of my favourite guest performances on the show to date.

While he's not Grimlock here, it was great having a classic G1 VA like Gregg come in and voice a brand new character and it helps that Stockade is easily one of my favourite Decepticons in the show. He is a Soldier/General Patton type of character and Gregg just nails the warmongering of this character.

I really hope they bring Stockade back for the next season, he is too good of a Decepticon to go to waste, hell IMO he should have been one of the main Decepticons of the show.

It's also cool he got to reprise his role as General Kalani in Star Wars: Rebels. I'll have to inevitably catch up on Rebels sometime soon but still it's very cool to see Gregg still getting work.

Happy Birthday Gregg Berger!
