Happy Birthday Bill Rogers.

He sure has come a long way from his beginnings doing anime back in New York and being involved in the TPCI dub of Pokemon as Brock before moving to LA 3 years ago.

Still it's amazing to hear him voice so many different characters and even to this very day, still have a similar vocal range to Michael Sorich.

I'm glad to see him back in Hunter x Hunter as Crazy Slots, Monta, the Frog Ant and Meleoron and can't wait to hear more of his performance so Happy Birthday Bill.

BREAKING THE SOUND BARRIER


APPROACHING SOUND BARRIER

In all seriousness though it's great that Bill's doing work in LA now, love it when the Pokémon cast expand to other stuff.

And then I realize he sorta look like Dave Wittenberg

And to realize that at some point his number of roles in Pokemon diminish as he went on to LA

@HienFan I don't think he looks like Dave Wittenberg facial wise.

In regards to Pokémon, he still works on the show but it is limited to the Pokémon he previously provides voices on (e.g. Lucario, Weavile, Alakazam, Zigzagoon, Chimchar and its Evolutions, Croagunk, Sudowoodo/Bonsly, etc..).

Good to see Bill Rogers work in LA has been pretty solid.

Never been much a fan of his Brock in TCPI's dub but his work in OPM and HXH is rather good.

I kinda think he could work really well voicing Okuyasu Nijimura when they dub Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable.

His voice is pretty hit and miss as far as New York goes while his LA work is more consistent

Also hello new picture

His performances as Urien and Majitani are actually not half-bad; pretty good even.

Miscast as Brock, but talented as the many Pokemon he voices.

@GreenGoblin75 especially Combusken.
That's exactly how I picture a fighting cartoon chicken to sound.

I never would've expected to see Bill Rogers to show up in the Hunter x Hunter dub ,just until I saw his name in the credits and man he nailed it as Majitani I actually thought it sounded like Michael Sorich at first.

Wish Bill the best of luck on getting more voice over roles in Los Angeles.

@DisneyAnimefan1995 *On second thought, maybe he didn't officially move to LA just yet, since his twitter does say NY and LA, but you may never know.

He was better off voicing characters like Tucker, he sounded better as him than as his other characters as far as Pokemon goes to me.

His Sudowoodo, Combusken, Corphish and Chimchar voices are my favorite.
Some say he was not Combusken in the Mirage special but who else could have been Combusken.
I do know it wasn't stock footage from 4Kids.

His best work is the various Pokemon he voices, he does well there. Shocking miscast as Ghetsis but he's still a decent VA :-)

@Torak Huh, didn't know he was Ghetsis.

Scratch that, I didn't even know Ghetsis had an anime portrayal in the first place.
Torak

@Metabad
Bill sounds a lot like Carter Cathcart as Ghetsis, but his delivery and 's' pronounciations are pretty recognisable.
Let's just say I'm glad his character isn't here. :3
Metabad
said at 1:26 PM on Thu Nov 13 2014
@Torak Any particular role of Cathcart's?

On a sidenote, I see that your avatar is Ghetsis, so you must be a pretty big fan of him, which leads me to my second question...out of curiosity, is there any particular VA you had in mind for him?
Torak
said at 4:02 PM on Thu Nov 13 2014
@Metabad Bill uses a rather slimy, croaky and manipulative voice for Ghetsis that sounds a lot like the kind of voice Cathcart does. The
voice Bill used (or was told to) use was too light, forced and croaky for me. I still like Bill as an actor, but I was of course disappointed with what we got. I imagined a more intelligent, smoother and deeper voice for the character. Something like J Michael Tatum or Travis Willingham.
As for my avatar: I just loved the artwork really :-P He's a decent villain (and a final boss too) in the game that is.
Metabad
said at 7:27 PM on Thu Nov 13 2014
@Torak Ahh yeah, I've never heard it myself but going by the way you describe it, that doesn't sound like it would fit at all.

J. Michael Tatum and Travis Willingham sound like much better choices for the role.

I don't know much about the character, but how about David Kaye as Ghetsis?
Torak
said at 7:19 AM on Fri Nov 14 2014
@Metabad Yeeeeess, his booming deep voice would work too. xD
Metabad
said at 12:43 AM on Mon Dec 29 2014
@Torak Another idea I had a while back, how about Jack Merluzzi as Ghetsis? Using something along the lines of his Master Albert voice.

I'll link you to a video in case you're unfamiliar with it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IDrtQO0SgiQ#t=0m23s
