Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Glenn Talbot with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Hulk

Glenn Talbot is one of the various antagonists of the Hulk franchise whom made his comic book debut in Tales to Astonish #61 back in November of 1964. Glenn Talbot is a Soldier whom serves the US Air Force (in which he was originally a Major but has also been known as a Colonel) whom is second in command to General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross in tracking down the Hulk. Glenn is often depicted as a soldier whom is just as eager to track down the Hulk as much as the General (whom also fancies his daughter Betty Ross) but was also the one whom discovered that Bruce Banner is the one whom transforms into the Hulk. Whether if Glenn Talbot is really a bad guy or not depends on which storyline we are talking about here whether if he is a good soldier doing his duty or an arrogant suck-up to General Ross (not too mention other things such as if he is a good love interest to Betty Ross or not).

Today on the Hulk VC section we take a look at General Ross' right hand man... GLENN TALBOT! Lets begin...

John Vernon- Apparently Glenn Talbot was played by Tony Stark in this show as basically the late John Vernon's voice for the role is the exact same as his Tony Stark/Iron Man voice. (Though due to how Glenn looks a lot like Tony Stark did in this show doesn't help either.) Granted to be fair John's work on this role is most certainly not bad but it is a bit awkward on how his work on the role is barely any different than his work as Tony Stark.

Patrick Fraley- An interesting change of pace for Patrick Fraley as he can try to sound serious even if he is known as an arrogant cowardly suck-up at heart. Basically its a pretty good example of Patrick Fraley's work and a good example of the voice work in the show.

Kevin Schon- Not bad, as the show tries to do a mixture of Talbot's "Arrogant Suck-Up" characterization and his more sympathetic characterization into one over the course of the series and Kevin's attempt to convey that for this voice and performance for the role was pretty good.

Michael Gannon- Kind of generic but its alright, as at least Michael's performance for the role does kind of suit on how Talbot is a flat out bad guy in this game as a delusional maniac in a Hulkbuster suit. So in other words its not a bad performance but it is the weakest one here so far.

Overall most of these guys are pretty good but none of them are seemingly perfect for the role but I suppose Kevin Schon is the closest out of these guys to be the best.

John Vernon sounds decent, despite sounding to similar to Iron Man/Tony Stark

Patrick Fraley is quite impressive here. He really makes the performance work and you can buy the fact that he's loyal to Thunderbolt Ross. It comes across as very genuine

Kevin Schon is similar to Patrick with his performance though I think Patrick does it better.

Michael Gannon is probably the weakest out of all the performances. Just comes across as generic

Troy Baker has similar problems to Michael, though his acting is much better in comparison. I'll put him under Patrick & Kevin, though as it stands, this is his weakest role from Earth's Mightiest Heroes.

Patrick Fraley has my vote.

All of them did great, but I always enjoyed Fraley's more comedic take. It was pretty entertaining and you couldn't help but laugh with all the things that happened to him on the show.

Adrian Pasdar should voice Talbot. He portrays him very well in Agents of SHIELD.

I wonder if Nolan North would make a good Talbot?

@Finister2 It would have sounded better than Troy Baker. Infact there's probably a few roles they should have switched with each other.

None of them really do it for me, though I do like the suave touch Vernon put on his last line.

If I had to pick a new voice for Talbot, I'd go with Brian Dobson doing something along the lines of his Jason Naught performance, something that captures the character's authority, suaveness and sycophancy all in one.

Troy is Number1 with Kevin 2nd.

John & Patrick don't really fit.

As for Michael, he is just... meh, not the best but not the worst.

I find this to be Troy's weakest role in EMH IMO. It is not very commanding and it sounds too young.

Kevin Schon is my ideal Glenn Talbot.

Why is Michael Gannon's version wearing the War Machine armor?
said at 8:43 PM on Fri Mar 15 2013
@pete He's in something called the Hulkbuster armor. I haven't played the game so I don't know if that belongs to Iron Man or the military group.

@pete No, I agree with your comment

@Music Meister

Expect he later voted for Baker for Talbot, hence he no longer stands by it and was probably was the reason why he asked for it deleted.
said at 8:09 PM on Fri Mar 15 2013
@Music Meister I thought this was the General Ross compare and was criticizing Troy for sounding too young as Ross. When I realized it was Talbot's I went with Baker. I just noticed that fortunately I never referred to it as Ross's compare.

The clip for Kevin Schon sounds oddly high-pitched. Thar said, from what I recall on the sound, he was pretty good, so I'm giving it to him, though Michael Gannon was good, too.

@Anicomicgeek I'm gonna change my vote to Troy Baker. He was better as Talbot.

I find it kinda funny that Vernon voiced both Talbot and Ross.
