While I'm hoping for Ocean to dub Hunter X Hunter 2011, I do think that Marc would be a great casting choice for Ging Freecss.

@PsychicVoiceSpy Or Blue Water Studios.

@SteelEthlan nah, Blue Water already did the first series and it bombed. whoever gets the new one will likely use a new cast entirely.

@PsychicVoiceSpy Marc's an LA/NY actor, and Ocean's located in Vancouver, lest they make this dub a hybrid LA-Vancouver dub (whilst there are some LA productions that did use Vancouver-based actors, such as Street Fighter X Tekken, they only used one or two and that was it. Making a dub cast that uses LA for one half and Vancouver for the other half of the cast would be extremely complicated due to having to sign contracts with both the UBCP and the SAG-AFTRA)

@Domayv I wasn't saying that I literally wanted an LA-Vancouver hybrid dub just so Marc could be Ging while still having a Vancouver cast. I'm not that ignorant. I was merely saying that I thought he'd be a great fit for the character while making it clear that I'm more in support of Ocean dubbing HxH.

Just imagine this guy as Batman! :)

@BioZero216 Honestly, I think that if he got to voice Batman he would be one of the best voices he's ever had.

@PsychicVoiceSpy I doubt it could match his Oscar Worthy Guts, but he does sound a lot like Kevin Conroy but somewhaf younger. If he was Batman in Arkham Origins, it would've been awesome! But RCS was good too.

@BioZero216 OH My God...Dude Yes.

Though I also want to see Kevin T. Collins voice Batman as well. :p

But Seriously Diraison would own as Batman, I hope Andrea Romano discovers him soon.

Happy birthday, Marc Diraison! Guts was all it took to make him one of my favorite VA's of all time, and he's excellent in everything else I've heard him in since then. He's the perfect voice for bad@$$ characters and he can make them sound VERY imposing, but he also puts tons of raw emotion into his roles as well.

He's also incredibly funny, giving great comedic delivery when it's called for and his outtakes from Berserk are absolutely hysterical! I hope to see him in a LOT more things now that he's in LA.

Happy Birthday Marc Diraison.

You absolutely slayed it as Guts in Berserk. Nobody could have played that role as well as he did. It's easily one of the greatest castings ever in anime dub history.

I also like his voice for Tokiomi Tohsaka in Fate/Zero and his Zoro/Zolo in the 4Kids dub of One Piece was definitely the shining light in that travesty of a dub, if only he could have voiced him in an uncut dub of One Piece.

I'm glad you moved to LA, now you can get more roles as you rightfully deserve.

Is it just me, or does his performances as guts and a few others sound like Crispin Freeman? They both share the same viciousness.

With Dynasty Warriors 8:Empires getting a dub, it's gonna be great hearing him as Fa Zheng again =D

Voice-wise, he's probably the Shinichiro Miki from the U.S.

O_0 How did I go through the entirety of SAO and NOT recognize that 4Kids era Zoro was voicing Kayaba?

Excellent as Guts. It's also nice that he's in recent works like Fate/Zero.

Berserk III: The Advent comes to DVD in April. Can't wait to hear him in it, especially Guts' war declaration.

Marc was a great Zoro in One Piece, even though it was a bad production overall, I thought his voice really stood out, and suited the character nicely. In some aspects, I like him better than Christopher Sabat. Many of his other voice acting roles have been great too!

If VIZ Media doesn't reunite the original dub cast (especially Marc) I refuse to buy the movies!

If VIZ does use an L.A. cast (hope they don't) I doubt they'll be as good as the New York cast.

Plus I heard Michael Sinterniklaas (who directed the TV series dub) knows the Berserk universe like the back of his hand.

If VIZ hires someone else to direct I doubt they'll do as good a job.

The Berserk dub is arguably the best dub the New York talent pool has ever worked on.

The original Pokemon cast was awesome but the show itself had some minor edits/censorship.

Berserk dub was uncut, unedited and just amazing!

If he doesn't reprise the role when the Berserk movies are licensed for North America, you can count me among those who shall complain!
