Daredevil Daredevil


Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Bullseye with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Daredevil

Bullseye is a Super-Villain whom is mainly known as a prominent foe of Daredevil whom made his first appearance in Daredevil #131 in March of 1976. The real name of Bullseye is uncertain but it is true that he is a psychopath from the Bronx, NY whom is known for having a perfect sense of accuracy whom can turn just about anything into a weapon (and he has had certain bones in his body such as his spine to be laced with adamantium). Bullseye is one of the most prominent hitmen in the criminal world whom has served various super-villains over the years and not only is he one of the most prominent foes of Daredevil but lets just say he has a very unfriendly rivalry with fellow assassin Elektra Natchios. While Bullseye has worked for other Super-villains before the teams that he has worked with are the Thunderbolts and the Dark Avengers.

In the Marvel Universe VC section we take a look at one of Daredevil's most prominent foes... BULLSEYE! Let us begin...

Steve Blum- Decent but perhaps his Bullseye voice was a little too high, but at least he did have the right idea in trying to make his Bullseye voice sound rough. Granted Blum was also trying to sound different from his Matt Murdock voice in the game but while his performance for the role was decent I do feel that this Bullseye voice would've been better if was a bit lower.

Peter Lurie- Now oddly enough Peter's fairly high pitched voice for the role actually does work with the role pretty well and is a good reminder that he can do higher pitched voices rather well too. Though it certainly helps that Peter's performance suited Bullseye's psychotic and competitive tendencies rather well so basically its another fine example of Peter's work. (Oh yes and oddly enough this is the first adaptation where Bullseye and Daredevil/Matt Murdock did not have the same VA.)

Brian Bloom- Unlike his predecessors Brian's voice for the role was a bit lower and rougher which does work with the role well (though it also suits on how Bullseye was at the time majorly drugged up by a Nanomachines sedative). But still while those were all of Bullseye's lines in that game Brian did some good work with what material he had.  

Christopher Daniel Barnes- CDB's work is actually pretty good as his voice and performance does suit Bullseye's "Violent Thug" persona pretty well. While CDB's work on the role does suit the game's light-hearten nature well enough I do think that it has the potential to fit in with a more serious depiction as well so in other words it is a pretty good example of CDB's work.

Rick D. Wasserman-  While this is also a somewhat interesting change of pace for Rick (namely to hear him do a rather high-pitched voice) but aside from the novelty of Rick doing a high-pitched voice this is kind of generic. Granted Rick's performance does have a pretty good sense of energy though but his work as Bullseye is pretty average at best.

Overall I am going with Peter Lurie the most here as he delivers the most memorable performance out of the folks whom has played Bullseye so far.

This is a tough one, for me its either Peter Lurie or Steve Blum.

Peter Lurie voices Bullseye as a arrogant loudmouth New Yorker and he sounds pretty aggressive and psychotic.

However Steve Blum sounds so friggin vicious for a killer like Bullseye.

As for the rest....

Brian Bloom sounds too much like his Daredevil and Captain America for my liking.

Crispin Freeman is a good fit for the role, if he voiced him in another more darker version of the character he could be perfect.

Rick D. Wasserman....sadly my least favourite voice here. He sounds too high pitch and goofy. It's a shame he has an awesome voice and I know he could have done this role perfectly.

I'll probably vote for Peter Lurie on this one.

BONUS: Bryan Massey really needs to become the voice of Bullseye, if he ever did I'd switch to him in a heartbeat....his Ladd Russo says it all. I could also see someone like Scottie Ray, Mark Hamill, Thomas F. Wilson or John DiMaggio being a great fit for Bullseye.

Ya know what... I think I like Steve Blum the most here. Peter Luire sounds a little too high and cartoony, but Steve's rough tone suits the character very well. I would like to see him get another shot at the character, albeit voicing the more traditional version.

Brian Bloom would get 2nd place, but he unfortunately barely gets any lines. Steve Blum FTW!

if bryan massey(ladd russo from baccano), ever played bullseye, it would definitely give the character some more depth. I can hear him torture daredevil with a cold psychotic joy in his tone

I've always pictured Bullseye with a lower voice, so I'm gonna go with Brian Bloom.

Ever since I heard him as sportsmaster on young justice I've thought Nick Chinlund should voice Bullseye.

Shame the Daredevil movie didn't get a game, I would have put Colin Farrell as either second or equal to Peter (that is, if he voice acted well)

Did I hear the Starcraft Marine death scream in Blum's clip?

Peter wins easily, he was psycho yet cocky and showed how competive he is plus he had a slight New York accent that didnt distract you from the performance. I remember really enjoying his performance in the game.

Steven is pretty good as it did feel threatening but it didn't feel natural. Brian isn't bad but just needs more lines where Bullseye wasn't drugged.

Actually maybe Peter doesnt have an accent

I think you need a better quality clip for Bloom; I can barely hear him.

@SpiderDreamer Thing is, its pretty difficult looking for clips from video games.

I rather liked the sound of Lurie's voice for Bullseye as well.
