Fave Comedian: Chris Rock
Good friends with Steve Blum
and Wendee Lee
is also a good friend of his. He was the one that got him into doing prominent voice work in Digimon
and Cyborg 009.
Was going to quit doing voice work in anime dubs back in 2001 for two reasons:
1. He is starting to like North American animation more.
2. Hates how the VA union system is in California when it comes to anime.
He got back into doing voice work in anime when Derek Stephen Prince
was fired from Cyborg 009 when Sony thought he made his character "too wimpy".
Considers Hige of Wolf's Rain
to be the most "kindred" character he ever played.
Likes the fact that they re-animated the mouth movements for him in Duel Masters
. However he hated the fact that in the upcoming new season of Duel Masters they'll be recasting the whole show in a different part of California. (That is way too far for him to drive there.)
Is a firm believer that Anime Companies should spend MORE money on their voice talent. Hates the fact that they're constantly going for the cheaper route and says it could be a terrible strain in the Anime Industry in the US.
Also dislikes the fact that he got more money from doing a small part in the Spongebob Squarepants movie
than ALL of Digimon put together.
Even though Johnny Yong Bosch
was deemed as "Guest of Honor" at the OtakuCon of 2004 he left earlier than the others and Josh's joke response was that he took all his money during Poker.
(On one reason why its better to do VA work as a group recording rather than separately.) "We get paid more."
