He is one of few VA's where their performance as a villian shends shivers down my spine. The Fallen & Zoom being the best examples of this.

He's got some of the heaviest, thickest, rangiest pipes I've ever heard, & also has approvable acting chops. Darkside, Zoom, The Fallen, Alastor, Dreadwing, Icon, & Aeon Worm all sound deadly.

Needs more VO roles for sure.

Happy Birthday Tony Todd!

He has one of the deepest, most hollow and almost undisputed scariest voice ever in the history of acting. Anything Tony has said over the years is a perfect mix of intimidating and even cool. With a voice like that it's not hard to see why he's often cast in the horror genre and makes for a fantastic VA.

My favourite live-action role has to be as The Candyman in the Candyman franchise, this is where his deep terrifying voice and presence worked perfectly making The Candyman rather charismatic, compelling and a true supernatural force to be reckoned with.

He was also excellent as the psychopathic soldier Captain Darrow in The Rock. He was the rocket man!

Voice Wise I have so many favourites from him, my favourite being his current ongoing role as Zoom on The Flash. While at the moment we don't know who he is or his true objection, what we do know is that he is truly terrifying. Whenever he's onscreen it's rather unnerving and the way he beat the crap out of Barry in "Enter Zoom" just scares me.

I've also loved his performances as The Fallen, Dreadwing, Darkseid, Astaroth and Icon. I really loved how as Icon and Dreadwing, he was able to play against type as an actual superhero and a noble anti-villain. His performance as The Fallen was one of the few things I liked about ROTF, despite The Fallen being a total jobber, his voice was just perfect for an ancient evil, it's a shame he didn't reprise in RID as Megatronus since Gil Gerard really didn't cut it in the end.

I hope we continue to see him in more things and I get the chance to meet him. I've tried saying Candyman 5 times in a mirror and still so far nothing, I'm not giving up hope yet.

Overall while Zoom's characterization at the end of Season 2 was just okay at best, Tony Todd really gave his A-Game the whole time and it really shows but of course Tony is great at being naturally scaring and intimidating.

and with Young Justice coming back, I hope he continues to voice Icon and perhaps take over as Darkseid again. While I do like his Darkseid performance in the Lego DC Comics Super Heroes animated movies, it'd be great to hear more of Todd as Darkseid. Of course only time will tell.

Happy Birthday Tony Todd!

About time he got to voice a hero, rather than a villain.

I hope Tony does more voice work in the near future because what little of it he has done I've enjoyed it quite a bit.
