Why hasn't this guy gotten more work? He kinda reminds me of Tony Jay & Jon Avner. An epic voice, especially as Gargoyle.

@GreenGoblin75 While I do feel his Gargoyle voice was ill-fitting for the character, that voice would be perfect for Darkseid in a Justice League Anime or Apocalypse in an X Men animated series.

@EPA Deane How was it ill-fitted...!?

@Fernie Fernandez Gargoyle is supposed to be calm and controlled, while having subtle traces of genocidal insanity and intellectual arrogance.

Bulen's Gargoyle feels too loud, deranged and agrandising for my liking.

@EPA Deane To be honest, I don't think he was loud, but I love that Tony Jay vibe he gives on Gargoyle...!

@Fernie Fernandez Bulen may be a good voice actor, but as Gargoyle... I personally think David Frank Jones has the advantage here. NADIA, while having moments of cartoonish action, otherwise works well when it's played straight, and ADV's version does well with that.

Gargoyle in particular is supposed to be played straight; he's not an over-the-top evil monster, but a dangerously genocidal, arrogant, down-to-earth sort of villain which is what makes his villainy all the more appalling. Having him sound over-the-top only kills the credibility of the character, making him more of a stock villain as opposed to a complicated individual. Jones' portrayal has a bit more subtlety, and to me, is the better performance because of that. Because Gargoyle isn't just a generic cartoon villain; he's more than that.

@JTurner
Bulen sounded pretty relaxed at the beginning of his clip.

Then he goes into the terrifying yelling which just sounds really cool.
