Wayne was just great as Lance, Joey Wheeler, Michelangelo, Butler, and Dartz: he is definitely one of the finest VAs still remaining in New York.

Another of New York's finest VA's!

Wayne Grayson is great whether he's playing funny hot blooded idiots, hammy charismatic villains or even little kids.

My favourite role of his is his most iconic, Joey Wheeler in Yu-Gi-Oh! He's got one of my favourite Brooklyn accents I've ever heard. Yeah it's maybe a bit overdone but to be fair, in the Japanese version the character has a Osakan accent which often translate into a New Yorker accent so in all fairness it fits him rather well, plus he nails the lovable hot blooded idiot underdog and good friend that Joey is.

I'll admit I never saw much of the later seasons of Duel Monsters but he was rather impression as Dartz from what I've heard. I also liked him as Shadi. He also does a great job emulating the late Maddie Blaustein as Solomon Muto, I hope he can continue improving on that impression he shows a lot of potential. Syrus Truesdale is also a great example of his range. I'm rather impressed that this is the same guy who did Joey. If I never knew, I wouldn't have guessed.

Speaking of kid characters he's voiced, I really loved his performance as Hellmaster Phibrizzo in The Slayers franchise. Again, really shows off how versatile he is as a VA.

He also made one shell of a Michelangelo in TMNT, he was hilarious in the role.

I also loved his performances as Butler, Lance, Harrison and Fandral.

It's cool to see that he got to voice in Gundam Thunderbolt this past year and the fact he's most likely back as Joey Wheeler is great.

It'd be cool if he got to voice in the dub of the new Berserk series. Here's hoping we hear him in more great dubs soon.

@Autovolt Actually, Jonouchi doesn't have an Osakan accent in the Japanese version. The idea of giving him a New York accent came from the fact he has an extremely rude, and often improper, way of speaking to people in the Japanese version. A similar thing happened with Bakura. His normal personality has an extremely polite way of speaking - hence him having a British accent in the dub.

The closest there is an Osaka accent in Yugioh is Rex Raptor. His character speaks in the Kansai Ben dialect in the Japanese version. An English equivalent would be something like a Texas hick voice - but I guess 4Kids figured they had enough accents in the dub as is.

He has a lot more impressive voice range than I think a lot of people realize. It's a shame he doesn't seem to be doing much anime work anymore.
