Happy birthday, Sam.

Easily one of my top favourite VAs and ADR directors.

My favourite role is Motonari Mori. He has a great "emotionally detached" voice for the character. He also captures the "smug snake" aspect too when he betrays the Toyotomi army and when he confronts Motochika afterward.

Also enjoyed roles such as Spider-Man, Phoenix Wright, Shirou Emiya, Taniguchi, Donatello, Starscream and Pheles. Not forgetting Leon in Violetta's first season.

Happy Birthday Sam Riegel!

He's one of those VA's who is just able to voice so many types of characters without having to change his voice that much.

Viral is easily my favourite role of his, he's got the ferociousness, the strength and a fitting gruff and raspy voice. Simply put it's badass.

and I also loved his performances as Donatello, Kiyotsugu Kiyojuji, Shirou Emiya, Starscream, Spider-Man, Clovis la Britanna, Taniguchi, Mephisto Pheles, Array, Ahbmad Saluja, Spartos, Dorji, Rex Raptor and Tristan Taylor (I don't care he inspired the abridged voice so it's all good in my books. :p)

I kind of wish that he came back to voice Shirou in Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works....I know he wasn't the most fitting choice but I thought he had potential and would have been more unique than Bryce Papenbrook...oh well.

Happy birthday to Sam Riegel. From actor to voice director to dungeons and dragons player. From Donatello, Flynn Scifo, first generation Shiro Emiya and second generation Teddie. One of my favourite moments that Riegel has acted in was from Haruhi Suzumiya where he played as Taniguchi. His happiness squeal was golden.

As Scanlan Shorthalt from Critical Role has brought the world many golden moments. From the bard songs (hits such as Scanlan make you feel real good) to unleashing the power of Burt Reynolds.

Happy 39th Birthday, to a man that went from NY (where Sonic Games were recorded from 2005-2010) to LA (where Sonic Games have been recorded since 2010). Nice job with both of them Atlantic and Pacific Industries these past 2 decades.

For the longest time, I always cracked jokes to myself about how Flynn from Vesperia looks exactly like Ky from Guilty Gear.

Now Sam Riegel is voicing both characters.

What a world.

Really liked his portrayal of Starscream. Has the essence of Chris Latta, but still keeps it original.

It's kind of amazing how far this man has come from his Tristan Taylor days in Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters

Guess it shows to never give up and let an iffy performance bring your career down. Keep up the good work!

I've only heard him in The Amazing Spiderman game but he does a good Andrew Garfield impression.

I recently heard Riegel on the podcast he does along with Liam O'Brien. In it he said that he plays every character he's cast as hilariously over the top camp-gay unless instructed otherwise.

That explains SO much XD
