Steve Bulen really sounds like Tony Jay here, but his voice also sounds like it was probably artificially deepened.

I like both of them, but I'll give this one to David - he gives a smooth but cold delivery.

David Jones' more subdued and Intellectual voice was one that I freely admit not caring for when I first listen to the dub. After reflecting on several plot developments near the end of the show (and reviewing all of his appearances), I can't praise it enough now. There's a sinister subtlety in Jones' delivery (balancing a cold authoritarian streak and a vicious, genocidal madness within), that is commendably unnerving.

I feel Steve Bulen's performance would be more fitting for a self-aggrandizing Comic Book Villain (e.g. Doctor Doom or Apocalypse)

David Jones earns my vote.

@EPA Deane Jones took me awhile to get accustomed to as well. It wasn't until roughly about midway through the show that I got accustomed to him, and by the finale I thought he really got into it. Likewise with Ev Lunning as Nemo.

Revisiting this compare, I can kinda see where DFJ was going and I think he does a good job. Still prefer Steve Bulen, because that warped Shere Khan turned crazy religious acolyte is just too cool.

I prefer Steve Bulen. DFJ sounds a little bland.

@GreenGoblin75 David Jones got a lot better as he went along IMO; when I first heard his voice in the dub I wasn't sure what the directors had in mind for him, but by episode 20 I had gotten accustomed to it, and I felt he really got great at the final episodes (38 and 39); the cackling I heard from him there made me swear that it wasn't the same Jones.

Looks like both David and Steve tie in the polls. Interesting.

I've never seen this show before, but I have to say, Steve Bulen's voice here reminds me a lot of George Sanders and to a lesser extent Tony Jay. His voice gives me a warped Shere Khan vibe, it's really cool.

David Frank Jones' deadpan voices really works for Gargoyle. For me, the voice gives him more of an intimidating villain feel as well as some charisma to it.

@Fulgore2005 Jones actually took the longest time for me to warm up to, not because I thought he was bad, but because he didn't sound exactly what I would expect for a badguy wearing a mask. But as the show went on and his identity became more clear, I began to realize what Jones was going for, and today I find it hard to listen to anybody else except Jones in the role. Steve Bulen isn't BAD, per say, but he does play Gargoyle too stereotypical as a villain.

...Is it just me or do both Steve Bulen and David Jones look like the same person?

Or at least really similar.

Curious. What's the sound in the background supposed to be?

@MaryKosmos To me, it sounds like a child is whimpering/crying.

@Fulgore2005 Maybe... If only I knew which episode that clip came from...
said at 11:24 AM on Sat Sep 8 2012
@MaryKosmos It's probably from episode 7, the scene where Gargoyle threatens to shoot Marie and King should Nadia continue to refuse revealing the Blue Water (she finally does under the pressure).
