He did a good job as Red, Cyclonus, Alan Gado, and even his brief dialogue as that Cruise Ship Captain in Fastening Days 2 was still decent. I even find his cheesy roles/misfires like Barry Burton, Yugo Ogami, Octane, and Vigo(Nightcry) intriguing to listen to. I personally think narration roles play more to his strength, since he actually has a fine speaking voice, particularly in games like Elebits, Soul Edge, and other English Voice-over roles in japanese media.

@Light&Darkness94 Also recognized his voice and likeness from watching some old Japanese Pepsiman commercials.

Happy Birthday, Barry Gjerde! Going off of his takes on Barry Burton (The Danza?) and Red, he's at least an entertaining kind of cheesy to listen to if nothing else. Concerning the latter role, Gjerde actually gives one of the best performances in Mega Man X7, even though that really isn't saying too much.

I didn't know he played PORCO ROSSO in the older dub.

@JTurner I kind of wish I could listen to it, admittedly. I'm curious as to how he sounds in it.

@Metabad From what I understand, the older version of PORCO ROSSO wasn't done by Streamline per say, but by some other anonymous studio (rather cheaply too). I haven't exactly heard great things about it either. It may be difficult to find that older version. Not that I mind, though; I liked Disney's version just fine -- then again I do enjoy the Ghibli Disney dubs pretty much unreservedly.

@Metabad Well I finally got a chance to hear (well, tried to) the older dub of PORCO ROSSO, and I have to say, it's not worth seeking out. It's embarrassingly hokey, it's cartoony, and it's just plain bad. As Porco, Barry hits all the wrong notes. Although I could somewhat imagine the character having a voice like that, his delivery sounds so all over the place, ranging from flat to overacting with no major force "Shut uuuuup, just get out of here and leave us aloooooone!" Seriously, it's just awful.

While Disney's dub of "Porco Rosso" may not be my favorite of the Disney Ghibli dubs, it's a miles better effort overall. And there are a few people who say the Tokuma Porco dub is better than Disney's! Well, I could only stand about 30 seconds of it.
