Ah yes Brite Noah my favorite character in Mobile Suit Gundam known for his legendary slap which has turned boys into men.

His first VA was Wheat St James in the California based english dub of the movie trilogy who is known for giving the commander a British accent.  Considering this is his only performance I think he did a decent job here for the most part even, but at times his performance did go a bit over the top.

In the Ocean group-based English dub of the TV series, Brite is voiced by Chris Kalhoon.  Kalhoon did a good job  at making Brite sound like the young inexperience commander he was durring the One Year War, and felt more natural for Brite. 

In the Blue water studios english dub of Z Gundam Brite is voiced by Dave Kelly.  The dub of this series isn't very well received with most fans, but I felt Dave was one of the better performances giving Brite a strong commanding voice which fit very well in this series.

In the Animax-asia HK based dub for ZZ Gundam Brite's VA gives him a deeper voice than his other VAs.  I thought this performance was pretty average from the clips currently available, and while not too bad hes my least favorite here.

Overall I'm going with Chris Kalhoon

@IAMTHEVASTUNIVERSE I guess you can chalk it up to not hearing too much of him beforehand. But, yes, he did a fantastic job.

Christopher Smith is playing Bright in Gundam Unicorn and quite frankly he blows everyone who has ever played the character out of the water..I can tell that much from simply watching the preview of episode four of Gundam Unicorn.

@IAMTHEVASTUNIVERSE This, pretty much. It's pretty surprising, I didn't think he could pull it off.
