Happy Birthday Travis Willingham! 2X Years may not be the luckiest due to Ian Sinclair replacing you as Yu Kanda, but In Memory, You're always going as Yu Kanda! No one does it better than You. ;)

Happy birthday Travis! My favorite role is definitely Roy Mustang for obvious reasons, but he's also amazing as Knuckles, Guile, Lon'qu, Brady, and Thor as a few examples.

He's also delivered some of my favorite lines in any game or anime or that type of stuff, such as Lon'qu's "How well will you die?" and Mustang's dogs and miniskirts lines, or Brady's "So long, trash!". So many incredible lines from multiple characters with such amazing delivery from Travis. Truly one of the most talented people we have in this industry.

It's also nice that he's married to Laura Bailey, who has also been consistently amazing in her own roles as well. May his marriage to Laura live on for a long time.

Happy Birthday Travis Willingham!

My favourite role of his is Lon'qu in Awakening. He did well at making him sound intimidating and delivered some fantastic critical quotes like "How well will you die?" I also liked him as Brady although I rarely use that character.

Another great one is King Garon. I mean he just sounded so threatening and powerful as him! His performance in the cutscene in chapter 27 of Conquest gives me chills every time I hear it. And I think he gave Hans a pretty good "love to hate" voice. Which is pretty fitting for a psychopath who murders people just to get a higher position in the Nohrian army. Haven't really heard much of his Anankos yet but from the little I've heard he sounds great there as well.

I also liked him as Knuckles, Ace, Cell, Philemon, Death and Guile!

Happy Birthday, Travis Willingham! I always felt as if he was a great casting choice for Guile in Street Fighter IV; hell, his performance is better than Hiroki Yasumoto's, especially if SFV is anything to go by. What's amusing about all this is that Laura Bailey is Chun-Li's English VA and the two of them are married irl, so you could say Willingham went home to become a family man. A couple of my other favorite roles from this guy include Roy Mustang, Knuckles the Echidna, Thor, Kokuto, Free, Portgas D. Ace, and King Roland II. On a side note, Willingham's take on Jedah Dohma was actually pretty decent. He wouldn't really be my ideal pick for the character and doesn't quite possess the gravitas that Isshin Chiba has, but he did alright with the material he got.

There are alot of roles that I like from Travis. If I had to pick a few that stick out, It would have to be Ace from One Piece, Roy Mustang, Knuckles & Thor. He is also a great voice match for Dameon Clarke as well.

Just like his wife, he's not in much anime anymore but he's porven to be awesome in roles that aren't exclusively anime.

@Autovolt They might get back Travis for the home video release tho and rest of the undubbed d gray man series, but when it comes to broadcast dubs and in terms of being ready to record ones lines I guess I kinda saw this coming, just wish it wasnt going to come to fruition lol. Still I know Ian will be great.

Am I the only one who thinks his Roy Mustang sounded a LOT different in Brotherhood compared to the original anime?
sennen3
said at 8:44 AM on Tue Jul 5 2016
@GreenGoblin75

That's cause he was still kinda new to voice acting during the original anime. In Brotherhood he was a lot more confident in his performance and understood the character better.

said at 4:54 PM on Wed Sep 7 2016
@sennen3 "kinda new"

That was his first credit. Brotherhood was post-LA move, he'd become a pretty seasoned actor by then & we're lucky he was even *IN* FMAB.

Happy Birthday Travis Willingham!

Roy Mustang is without a doubt his best role to date. I truly believe he was born to voice Roy. He nails the ambitious colonel in every way from his very raw and emotional performances from, Its a terrible day for rain to when Roy loses control of himself and just tries to make Envy suffer and then there is his funny and gloriously hammy moments, I still get a good laugh out of I LOVE DOGS and TINY MINISKIRTS! I still find it incredible that this was his first major voice role, its one of the finest first roles I have seen a VA ever do thus far.

I also loved his other performances too including Ginko, Free, Takashi "Mori" Morinozuka, Antonio Lopez/Rock Bison, Christof Sievernich, Andreas Darlton, Relius Clover, Cell, Guile, Sideswipe, Slug, Onslaught, Knuckles, Gorilla Grodd, Lego Superman, Thor, Executioner, Mastermind and Hulk in The Super Hero Squad Show.

I also enjoyed his performances as Heretic, Yellowjacket and Mitsunari Yanagisawa.

It is a bit of a shame that he is nearly all but done with anime but it's understandable at the same time. Though he was in Fire Emblem: Fates in earlier this year, technically not an anime but still a English dub of a Japanese property. Still for the most part it was a good run while it lasted.

Happy Birthday Travis Willingham!

Happy birthday to Travis Willingham, for his portrayal of characters. From the lover of dogs Roy Mustang from FMA, the family man of Guile from Street Fighter, the worlds smartest Echidna Knuckles, the prince of Asgard as Thor and Reggie Rowe from Infamous Second Sun. Most importantly his role as Grog from Critical Role, where his expertise in shapes, colours and shiny things...also ale, has proven to be a valuable asset to Vox Machina.

Fun fact: He appeared onscreen in Secondhand Lions as a thug that gets beat up by Robert Duvall's character Hub. Due to his size(6'4), he was mistaken for a stuntman by the director, so Duvall was actually hitting him during the fight scene. When Duvall realized he was a regular actor, he apologized profusely and gave him some money to make up for it.

An effectively brilliant actor when properly directed its unfortunate that he is doing less anime work currently and more free lance animation & video game work at the moment. I very little interest in free lance animation & video games but at least he still doing reoccurring work in Naruto, Bleach,Tiger & Bunny and on occasion One Piece. I would like to see him be more active in the field of voice over for anime when possible considering he is such a formidable actor hopefully the possibility of this comes into fruition in the near future.
