I'm really disappointed that he (along with the original dub cast) is not in the new Berserk show.

Oh well, Happy Birthday Jon Avner!!!

It's the age of darkness, I know but I still need light to read this. Time of darkness descending. Thank god there's light, sounds like there's a blackout her. Wings of darkness the hell is that?

Blessed King Of Longing, sounds like a Christmas Carol. Do I have any other lines here? Wished they'd put on the light, can't read in the dark. Oh...wings of darkness, yes. 8....which is it 858...58. Do I have something on 58? Okay. The Currents of Causality, oh like that's Old Man River....the currents of causality. The time is now at hand, you've longed for the castle in the heavens...actually I longed for a White Castle right about now, I could use a slider. "

Amusingly.... When I First Heard that Opening Narration in Berserk, I actually mistook it for an evil Stan Lee......

Makes me wonder.... perhaps Jon Avner should do a full Impression of Stan Lee for an Animated Series (if Lee is unable to do voice work anymore).

Anyway, As everyone else has said, his voice work as Void is Phenomenal (though I actually can't decide which version of that voice I prefer).

If a New York Voice Cast ever did a dub for a 'Ghost In The Shell' Project, I think he would fantastic as Chief Daisuke Aramaki.

Hopefully Jake Erberle will be a Decent replacement for Avner....... but I don't think much of the Berserk show he's working on.

@EPA Deane Happy Birthday Mr Avner.

Is The Destiny of Mankind to be the Deprivation of your Glorious Void voice?

At least this much is true...... Void will never sound as Marvellously Decrepit and Charismatic without you....

I can't get enough hearing his narration. He sounds so similar to Ed Blaylock I thought they were one in the same until I looked it up. He's probably Blaylock's NY counterpart, and I mean it in a good way. Hope to hear him again.

Happy Birthday, Jon Avner. He's one of my favorite Voice Actors of all time. Jon Avner can portray an unspeakable evil as Void, and play a slap stick and hilarious villain like Ume.
I really hope he returns for the new Berserk anime, should it be dubbed. Apparently Void is going to be the narrator again.
Again, happy birthday.

Happy Birthday Jon Avner!

He is perhaps the greatest, most legendary, and underused voice actor in the history of voice acting.

His voice for Void and the narration for Berserk is godly. I especially love how he sounded in The Advent film, even with effects it sounds phenomenal....even better than before.

I have heard his demo reel and it has some of the scariest and most intimidating voices I have ever heard, especially that he can do a pretty spot on Tony Jay voice. I really hope Michael Sinterniklaas begins to use him more often in of his anime dubs in the neat future.

"the greatest, most legendary, and underused voice actor in the history of voice acting."

I'd say he'd have to fight John Rafter Lee tooth and nail for that distinction. Coincidentally, I'm reminded of him more than Jay, especially since their voiceover careers offer some interesting parallels.

Still, the art of subtlety has its own merits, and it makes for a nice surprise when you go out of your element. Case in point: Darkside Blues.

Happy birthday to Jon Avner, one of the best "deep, epic old man voice" guys in the business! He probably has some genuine versatility outside of that, but unfortunately he doesn't get a lot of VA work. Hopefully with the sudden increase in work New York VA's have been getting lately we'll see more of him in the near future! I really, really hope so.

This man is incredibly underused. Excellent as Void. A shame he has so little roles here.

@Fulgore2005 ^This one hundred times over. He has one of the most powerful voices I've heard since Tony Jay. It's a shame how little work most New York actors get in general, but it blows me away how little he's done when his voice is so incredible. :(
