Happy Birthday Beau Billingslea!

My top 10 favourite roles of his are:

1.) Jet Black (Cowboy Bebop)
2.) Bear Walken (Gungrave)
3.) Ben Jackson (Tiger & Bunny)
4.) Bertuccio (Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo)
5.) Light Nostrade (Hunter X Hunter)
6.) Matsunosuke Shibui (Samurai Champloo)
7.) Ogremon (Digimon Adventure)
8.) Dee Jay (Street Fighter II)
9.) Dogen Awakusu (Durarara!!)
10.) Lingerin (Durarara!!)

It's great that Beau has started doing non-union anime dubbing again, working on anime dubs like Hunter X Hunter and Magi: Adventures of Sinbad this past year. His presence in non-union dubs in LA have just made them a bit more awesome.

Is Beau Union or Ficore? I know he works mostly on commercials (I've seen some) but what is his position in the acting industry?

It's surprising and at the same time awesome to see Beau Billingslea show up in "Hunter x Hunter" as Light Nostrade, since initially I didn't expected he was going to appear in it given the show's non-union status and he become a union only actor. Other than that, It's good to see him in another anime title

Happy Birthday Beau Billingslea!

He has one of the coolest deep voices I've ever heard in anime. Excellent at voicing veteran with many life experiences, calm collected characters or hot blooded angry thugs and monsters.

My favourite role of his obviously has to be Jet Black from Cowboy Bebop. Jet might actually be my favourite character in the whole series. He's pretty much the Team Dad, tries to give helpful advice when he can even if other characters think they don't want it and I just feel the character as well as Beau's performance as him are very underrated.

I also loved his performances as Bear Walken, Ben Jackson, Bertuccio, Ogremon, Matsunosuke Shibui, Dee Jay, Dogen Awakusu and Lingerin.

I wish he was doing more voice work, either for anime or cartoons, it doesn't matter to me because his voice is too cool to go to waste.

His performances in the movies Expelled From Paradise and The Laws of the Universe Part 0 were very good.

It's a shame Beau hasn't picked up any new voice roles this year but there was nothing new unionized this year, hopefully next year he'll get to be in something and preferably with some nice meat to the role.

Happy Birthday Beau Billingslea!

Does anyone feel like Beau needs to work on western animation more. The way I see it, anime is not really cutting it for him.

@Jared Delgado He's primarily an on-camera actor. Anime is more like a side thing for him, but he's still pretty darn prolific if you look beyond just what's listed on BTVA.

@Nightmare Crusher Some good examples.

Dallas, Who's the Boss, The Blob (1988), In the Army Now (1994), My Favorite Martian (1999), Rebound (2005), Hannah Montana the Movie.

Happy birthday, Beau.

He is fantastic as Jet Black. Of course, he's also great in Gungrave, Naruto and Dynasty Warriors.
