Chris Bevins can be a very solid ADR director when all the right elements fall into place. The main issue I've seen plague quite a few of his dubbing productions over the years is his routine style of casting that essentially consists of roughly the same twenty actors in a vast majority of his dubs.(Most of the actors/actresses are talented and I can understand why they're cast quite often in many directors' dubbing productions) It just tends to make the casting aspect of the dubbing affair rather unexciting at times. Chris loves to cast Greg Ayres and Carli Mosier at least once or twice a year its been one of his calling cards in his casting for several years now.(Which I don't mind in itself) Once in a blue moon he will find a role for Taliesin Jaffe and Carrie Savage if they happen to be in town. It seems he only shakes up the casting routine and branches out for less cast acting talent when working on shows with larger supporting casts in the fashion of The Heroic Legend of Arslan or Michiko & Hatchin. I would like to see Bevins cast more outside his comfort zone and create compelling casting lists that break his habits altogether if only very briefly. Mike Mcfarland is a remarkable director at times but on occasion he falls into the same safe casting zone that Bevins tends to reside in. I've noticed that rookie ADR directors like Kyle Phillips have impeccable taste when it comes casting a dub with fresh talent while layering it with veteran talent when needed. He just lacks the needed experience to fully push the actors into capturing truly noteworthy performances.(He very well may improve with more directing projects in the future) The Dagashi Kashi dub is more consistently solid in the voice direction department then his previous directing work so that's a step in the right direction for him as a director. The Heroic Legend of Arslan is one of more noteworthy dubs I've seen from Bevins in some time. It would be nice to see more directing and casting in that high regard for his future directing work.

@IAMTHEVASTUNIVERSE Honestly that's a problem with all directors, though a main reason might be those actors that are cast in everything are only there because they're the ones most readily available for work. I won't act like it's the perfect excuse for it, but if they're the ones who can give the performance a director is looking for, I can see why that trend would be utilized.
