Really enjoyed him as Archie Andrews and Commisioner Gordon. He was also quite solid as Superboy.

Huh. Both Conroy AND Hastings were in Jak & Daxter. The director must've been a fan of Batman.

Happy Birthday and RIP Bob Hastings!

He was the perfect voice for Commissioner Gordon, he brought a nice commanding presence and earnest-ness to the role, sounding like a honest cop who rose through the ranks to get where he is today. It's hard for me to not hear his voice as Gordon whenever I'm reading the comics.

It's a shame he's no longer with us because, it would have been so cool for him to reprise Gordon for the Killing Joke movie, I'm sure Ray Wise will do Gordon justice but I'm just saying how sweet it would have been to have the whole BTAS gang back together once last time.

Also the fact he once voiced Superboy and Archie Andrews is rather amusing to say the least.

RIP Bob, you are missed.

2 batman TAS actors lost in the summer...just like last year. I really hope this isn't going to be a pattern.

RIP Bob, you were a fantastic Commissioner Gordon.
