I met Khary Payton at Comicon two months ago and gave him my collage and said that he wasn't on Street Sharks which I was right since I was kinda skeptical about that.

I'm only gonna say this once: BOOYAH. Happy Birthday, Khary Payton! He's delightful as Aqualad/Kaldur'ahm, Black Manta, Hex, Earl Devereaux, Rafiki, Nathan Copeland, Zack, Cyborg/Victor Stone, Herald, Pain Bot, and Couch Spirit. I'm also looking forward to the man's performance as Wasabi on the upcoming Big Hero 6 cartoon.

Happy Birthday Khary Payton!

My top 10 favourite roles from him are:

1.) Cyborg (Teen Titans)
2.) Grimlock (Transformers: Robots In Disguise)
3.) Black Manta (Young Justice)
4.) Aqualad/Kaldur'ahm (Young Justice)
5.) Hex (Ben 10)
6.) Killer Croc/Waylon Jones (Batman: Arkham Origins)
7.) Blade/Eric Brooks (Marvel Ultimate Alliance)
8.) Rafiki (The Lion Guard)
9.) Ripcord (G.I Joe: Renegades)
10.) Earl Devereaux (Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs)

Despite not really being a fan of The Walking Dead, it's great Khary got some acclaim for his role as King Ezekiel.

Happy Birthday Khary Payton!

My top 10 *UPDATED* favourite roles from him are:

1.) Cyborg (Teen Titans)
2.) Grimlock (Transformers: Robots In Disguise)
3.) Black Manta (Young Justice)
4.) Aqualad/Kaldur'ahm (Young Justice)
5.) Hex (Ben 10)
6.) Killer Croc/Waylon Jones (Batman: Arkham Origins)
7.) Blade/Eric Brooks (Marvel Ultimate Alliance)
8.) Rafiki (The Lion Guard)
9.) Ripcord (G.I Joe: Renegades)
10.) Granny Goodness (Justice League: Gods and Monsters)

Man it's crazy just how many opportunities Khary's had for reprising his most iconic role Cyborg in the past few years. Not that I mind, he truly is the definitive voice for the character.

I still can't believe he voiced Granny Goodness, now that's a really good example of him massively playing against type, hopefully he gets to reprise the role again in the near future.

Also surprising hearing him doing Firefly.

And lastly, I really am going to miss his interpretation of Grimlock, while I still prefer Gregg Berger, I really did love this version of Grimlock. Definitely the most fun Grimlock.

If he does play Darkseid on Young Justice or some other project, I hope he uses/gets to use his Hex voice from Ben 10. I think that would fit really well.

I gotta say, Khary is really talented. His range is really underappreciated. I don't know how he's able to go from Cyborg to Killer Croc to Doomsday to Black Manta to Hex to Blade and somehow make them all sound so different.

@SLEDGERAID

Yeah pretty big role! Might open up a lot of doors for his on-screen career. Only downside would be if he does less voice work in the future but hopefully he finds a good balance like Clancy Brown

@SLEDGERAID Idk how he got it tbh. I like tho how the walking dead have hired a good amount of consistent voice actors in Brina Palencia, jason douglas, and now Khary.

@SLEDGERAID You know what gents I was scared too a bout him doing less VA but when u mentioned Clancy Brown i was like "thats true" and yea it is cool that they have popular VAs on the shows and heck the games too Brina was in Survival Instinct, The show, and even the Michonne Telltales game

Happy Birthday Khary Payton!

I love this guy and his voice, especially for how bombastic he is in his roles.

Cyborg is obviously my favourite of his, the characters has had so many different voices and incarnations but Khary's take on him is perfection, as far as I'm concerned He IS Cyborg.

I also love his performances as Grimlock, Aqualad/Kaldur'ahm, Black Manta, Killer Croc, Doomsday, Hex, Manny, Blade, Ripcord and the final shout out goes to his Earl Devereaux...seriously that is an awesome Mr. T impression. He's one of those VA's that just continues to get better and better each year....one word sums up his whole career for me. BOOYAH!

As much as I love his Cyborg voice, Khary does a great job as Doomsday and Killer Croc! He's awesome at making them sound monstrous and inhuman; I'd totally recommend him as Demise if LoZ: Skyward Sword had voice acting!

Payton's voice-acting is by far one of the highlights of Teen Titans Go!. The guy seems to have this innate ability to take any line put in front of him and make it sound naturally funny. It helps that he's in the hands of developers willing to put his comedic abilities to good use :)
