EDITOR'S OPINION

Greetings all you DC fans, let us look at Etrigan....s (rhyming's hard)

 Billy Zane: Etrigan did not get as many lines as Jason in the episode but Billy just does a typical generic 'demon-y' voice. Maybe given a second chance and using a variation of his Ansem voice, he'd work a lot better.

 Michael T Weiss: A very cool voice. A bit of a cockney accent plus a suitable deep voice. Michael really fit Etrigan's angry nature but I like he had a bit of a Wolverine type of personality. I will say I'm a bit disappointed that Michael didn't get to rhyme but I guess that's more nitpicking. A good example of not only Michael but Justice League's voice work.

Kevin Conroy: Kevin was a decent stand in but I would have liked to see how Kevin could have handled Etrigan with more dialog and being able to do his own thing.

 Dee Bradley Baker: This is Etrigan's first TV apearrence where he speaks in full rhyme and Dee deliveries them very well without it coming off as silly or hard to take seriously. Dee gave a nice monstrous voice and unlike the other voices mentioned he does it with a higher voice which surprisingly fits Etrigan very well. Another stand out of both Dee and Brave and the Bold's voice work.

 Christopher S. Field: Chris also gets to take a crack at Etrigan's rhyming and does it decently. Chris' voice sometimes came off as unnatural and his performance could be too over the top and while Dee could make a higher voice for Etrigan work I think Chris is a bit too high.

 Overall I like Dee and Michael the most but the others aren't bad.

I actually think I prefer Ray Chase more, so I'm gonna change my vote to him.

VC thought update

I like Billy Zane the most. I really feel his voice has a sort of imposing presence and I honestly wish he had more material. His delivery is also quite solid.

Dee Bradley Baker is also great in the role. His hammy delivery is really enjoyable and his voice does fit the character well.

Michael T. Weiss' performance is good, but the accent is kinda off. If he dropped it, it would be much better.

Kevin Conroy gets too little material, but honestly, I could see him working well in the role.

Christopher S. Field has a lighter voice, but his delivery is really good, despite some off moments.

Ray Chase, I feel he's cool, but I dunno, I'm not really sold on his take.

@Starscreamsfan If you have seen JLA...What is your opinion on Patrick Seitz?

@huzaifa_ahmed Well, I really like him. He has a great imposing presence and he does sound like he's having fun, both as Jason and Etrigan. And like Zane, Baker and Weiss, he does add a difference between his Jason and Etrigan voices, so that's a plus.

I think I might change my vote for him once he gets added.

Ray Chase is very good here. Definitely a standout from Justice League Dark. It is pitch shifted, but not to the point where it sounds too unnatural.

Seitz and Chase are pretty good Etrigans. I'll have to give them more time to gel, but between the two I think Seitz does a slightly better job

Chase is giving me some hardcore Fred Tatasciore vibes here, though I think it sounds a bit less natural than Fred when he does voices like that. I will say that is a really nice show of range for Chase.

Patrick Seitz & Ray Chase both do an awesome job in new material. They should get more reprisals IMO.

"When men first lived like fools in caves -- I was there to fill their graves. The day they first invented fire, ten score of souls did feel my ire! I hated man who sought salvation! I tricked them into sweet damnation! I've always hated peace and love! I've naught but hate for the Lord above! In God's sweet love men can rejoice -- but I ne'er heard His blessed voice speak out and offer me the choice, to drink His blessed wine... For that's my place within His game, to be cast out and get the blame, for all these acts of mortal shame... You know what I say? FINE. "

Etrigan the Demon is DC's greatest Anti-Hero IMO and I loved his New 52 Book 'Demon Knights'. That book was Sword and Sorcery at its finest (along with being a highlight in The New 52)

Here Are My Top 5 Favourite Voices for Him:

5. Christopher S. Field/ Patrick Seitz
4. Billy Zane
3. Ray Chase
2. Dee Bradley Baker
1. Michael T. Weiss

Future VA Suggestions:

Simon Templeman would be perfect as Etrigan IMO. I think a similar voice to his Dumah from 'Legacy Of Kain: Soul Reaver' ( https://youtu.be/RtEx-p7UDeU?t=54s)

Michael E Rodgers would also be solid, using a distorted version of His Judge Gabranth voice.

I also recommend Robert Carlyle, Daran Norris, Scott Mcneil and Daniel Craig.

Dee Baker's performance in Flashpoint was identical to his performance in The Brave and the Bold. Why do you specifically single that out?

I dunno, in FP he seemed a little more whispery and gravelly. I also think he got better lines.

I'd like a voice that gives him more of a Medieval English accent, since Jason Blood is meant to be one of Arthur's knights.

While thinking this over, I had an interesting casting choice for Etrigan; Tim Curry. As Blood, he just uses his normal voice, but for Etrigan he re-uses his voice as Darkness from Legend.

@Fairfieldfencer Perfect choice! Tim would own this role.

How about Rick D Wsserman using his Thor for Blood, and Surtur for Etrigan.

I think Keith David or Michael Ironside would be great as both though KMR or Michael Dorn could probably pull it off with proper voice direction. They could definitely pull of Etrigan.

I'm going with Michael. If I had to pick someone to play Etrigan in the future I'd say maybe Chris Sabat should voice him using his Vegeta voice.

All five are good, but despite the lacking of rhyming, as with Jason Blood, I'll go with Michael T. Weiss.
