Happy Birthday JB Blanc!!

It's amazing that he's been gaining a lot more roles in both Western animation and video game voice work outside of Anime in the last 3-4 years.

@DisneyAnimefan1995 Though it would be nice if he continued with anime dubs. I'm not sure if those recent Street Fighter dub roles were credited, but he mentioned on a podcast that he started out through anime dubs, & it isn't like SF dubs pay THAT much more than anime dubs, & they're also non-union.

Granted, he's pointed out on The Voice Behind that he's union, tho he didn't specify exact status, & I won't further discuss that.

But it would be nice if he was in the occasional dub, like Steve Blum, Crispin Freeman, Liam O'Brien, Yuri Lowenthal, Kari Wahlgren, etc.

If he maybe didn't have the current wherewithal to be union-only...it'd be nice if he did non-union dubs as well - after all, it's not like dubbing companies aren't TRYING to unionize their work, they just lack a lot of the resources.

@huzaifa_ahmed For what it's worth, he pops up in a couple non-union projects occasionally. He reprised Dojima in late 2014 in P4AU.

It might just be limited to reprisals and not actively searching out new roles.

JB is starting to make bank as a voice director on big-name games too. Mafia III, Shadow of Mordor, XCOM 2, Lego Dimensions, and things like that. And I think he's had some good-sized live-action roles like Breaking Bad and War Dogs. The dude is basically going places.

Looking at this guy now, he's like an amusing concoction of Robin Atkin downes, Steve Blum, Fred Tatasciore, John Dimaggio and Jim Cummings, with just a hint of Mark Hamill, Jason Issacs and Tim Curry

@Troodon2 Not sure where all those guys on your list come from. He sounds mostly like DiMaggio & Cummings.

Somewhat lighter than Fred Tatasciore, & a lot smoother than Steven Blum.

Happy Birthday JB Blanc, another new favourite VA of mine.

The accents this man can do is extraordinary whether its British, French, Spanish, Russian or American it's always great.

He was the voice that I always wanted Bane to have and by god did he freaking nailed it!

I also like his voices for Zinyak, Deacon Frost, Omega Red, Wrecker, Heimdall, Captain Britain, El Fuerte, Alfred, Enrico Maxwell and Silat.

Though I think my favourite role of his has to be Roberto in Monster.

He is absolutely wicked in that role. Quite possibly one of the most villainous characters he's played in his career.

He was also great as Lynchman, Atsuro Masaki, Alberto Vist, Batroc The Leaper, Mangog and Titus.

Happy Birthday JB Blanc!

Happy birthday, JB Blanc.

Excellent as Bane. One of the best voices in Origins. Also enjoyed his work as El Fuerte, Phillipe Loren and Zinyak.

@Troodon2 Oops wrong Avengers show. Sorry about that.

@Polyester Funk I think it was Bullseye and Crusher.

@Troodon2 So far he's only had one role in AA, as Mangog.

Unless you're thinking of Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Either way, all of his credited characters from both shows are on here.

..................... He scares the hell out of me for the right reasons

@Aussieroth Enrico Maxwell, Hiruko, Bane, Zinyak good collections of baddies right there and most of them are bad to the bone; who can blame you?

He's got a lot of great roles but I'm not picking a favourite because I feel as though I need to here more from him. Hope he keeps on doing amazing voices.

It's uncanny how he and David Lodge sound so similar.
