Wow. So many VA's that I haven't seen in a Funi dub for a while. Bob Carter, Clarine Harp, Jeremy Inman, Laurie Steel and John Swasey.

@BioZero216 I agree especially with Bob Carter, Clarine Harp and Laurie Steele. Hopefully, the casting continues to impress, since this is quickly becoming one of my favorite Broadcast dubs.

@Domayv Well, Jason Douglas is a bit more regular than the other people we've mentioned.

...for that matter, so's Jeremy Inman.

I hope all of the fans of this series (whether through the manga or the subbed or dubbed versions) do not question whether or not Wallace and Worrick are the same person.

Spoiler alert if you don't believe me.

I can't believe I called it that Christopher Bevins was going to direct the dub and that Ian Sinclair would be Worick and Brandon Potter as Nico.

I only heard the sample and it sounds really good. While Brandon is a little lighter sounding and not as guttural and gruff like Kenjiro Tsuda he nails the death speaking pattern Nico has.

So far this is what I think my ideal cast would be like if this show gets a broadcast dub:
Worwick Arcangelo – J Michael Tatum
Nicolas Brown – Jason Douglas
Alex Benedetto – Jamie Marchi
Chad Adkins – Kent Williams
Dr. Theo – Chuck Huber
Nina – Megan Emerick
Cody Balfour – Clifford Chapin
Constance Raveau – Felecia Angelle
Marco Adriano – Christopher Bevins
Daniel Monroe – Christopher Smith
Uranos Corsica – R Bruce Elliot
Joel Raveau – Pam Dougherty
Barry Abbort – Newton Pittman
Big Mama/Georgiana – Rachel Robinson
Wallace Arcangelo - Micah Solusod

As what Autovolt said, Christopher Bevins would be an awesome ADR director for the Gangsta dub, as he had worked on Jormungand, in which the similarities between those shows are linked to Black Lagoon. I also think J. Michael Tatum would be a great script writer in this series. This genre in anime would suit him greatly with his writing.

And Chris Bevins is directing this series. I so called it! And I'm glad that Brandon Potter, Felecia Angelle and Rachel Robinson are part of the cast. I have high hopes for this dub.

I have a feeling Mike McFarland will direct Gangsta's dub but I think Christopher Bevins would be a better choice.

People compare this show to Black Lagoon and Bevins directed Jormungand another show people often compare to Black Lagoon.

@Autovolt

I don't mind if Mike or Chris direct the dub both are competent ADR Directors in their own right. I just want a unique and interesting english cast for this dub. The usual suspects won't cut it this time around. I would like to see a mix of new talent with the type of veteran talent that we don't see cast very often. The broadcast dub era tends to have uninspired casting at times due to how quickly the dubs have to be produced and released to the general audience. I would prefer the Gangsta dub(along with the Prison School dub) not fall to such a phenomenon.
Whomever the ADR Director ends up being will ultimately make or break this dub.

@IAMTHEVASTUNIVERSE I can agree with you there. I'm starting to think the broadcast dubs might not have been the best ideas.

I mean for some newer VA's like Whitney Rodgers or Felicia Angelle it's been great but on the other hand it's always Monica Rial getting role after role. Obviously I hope they try to go a little more out of the box on this one. Hopefully Ed Blaylock and Wendy Powell are in it, those two are easily the most underutilized in the whole talent pool.

@Autovolt The Broadcast era is a blessing and a curse at times depending on the circumstances at hand which vary for each individual dub. On one hand rookie voice talent are being pushed in some less notable shows like Ultimate Otaku Teacher & Absolute Duo to build up their experience in a short time. New comers Justin Briner & Ricco Fajardo show some promise and most likely will be cast like crazy for years to come. Then there is rookie talent where its obvious they simply have a long way to go before they can be considered competent actors worth investing into by the general fandom. The onslaught of broadcast dubs as brought veteran actors who've been around for years into more prominent roles that wouldn't of gotten the chance to be shine if such an era didn't currently exist. Phil Parsons has had two rather large roles in Mike Mcfarland's recent dubs Tokyo Ghoul and Blood Blockade Battlefront. Chris Rager has had over six roles in just the first half of this year which has never happened in his 15 year career in the voice over medium. Sonny Strait and Jeremy Inman are directing dubs once again for the first time in many years. Anthony Bowling finally grabbed his first lead and hes been working for almost decade as well. The insane speed of producing these dubs have made veteran actors much more valuable to directors in terms of casting and directing. Monica Rial is cast often but actors like Jamie Marchi, Ian Sinclair, Chris Sabat, Josh Grelle or J. Michael Tatum are even more overexposed at times in the casting department. The casting does seem to limited at times considering the Dallas talent pool consists of over 300 actors that ADR Directors could pull from anytime at their whim. This is just the Dallas talent there is also the Houston talent Pool as well but only a few directors ever take full advantage of it from Funimation. Ed Blaylock has been underused his entire voice over career hopefully ADR Directors allow him to finally shine in much more prominent roles in the near future. Wendy Powell has managed to land a few roles recently in broadcast dubs so we may see her much more often in the future. I would like to see older talent like Jason Kane, John Tillman, Ken Marmon, Mark Fickert, Bradley Campbell and Bill Brooks be cast more often in future dubs. The voice direction and script writing can suffer at times as well but that varies depending on who's directing and writing the scripts. Improvements obviously need to be made in quite a few areas for broadcast dubs to be able to truly realize its full capable potential. Its always a work in progress.
