Happy Birthday Jeffrey Combs!

My top 5 favourite roles of his are:

1.) Ratchet (Transformers: Prime/RID)
2.) The Question (Justice League Unlimited)
3.) Hebert West (Re-Animator)
4.) The Leader (The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes)
5.) Rat King/Dr. Victor Falco (TMNT)

It was also pretty cool to hear Jeffrey take on the role of Brainiac in Injustice 2. A casting choice that is pretty inspired and fits rather nicely. The pitch shifting isn't too bad all things considered. Overall one of the better original casting choices/non-reprisals from the game.

I'm also hoping we get to hear him as Ratchet again before RID wraps up real soon.

With the new Injustice 2 trailer out, I think he might be the voice of Brainiac. If you ask me, that's pitch perfect casting.

Happy Birthday Jeffrey Combs!

Easily one of the best mad scientist actors there has ever been. Whenever I hear his voice it's hard to not think of a scientist character, obviously since he's best known as Hebert West in the Re-Animator series.

However I know him better for his voice acting instead like so many other actors. Ratchet is easily my all-time favourite role of his. His voice is pretty much the perfect voice for Ratchet. it's at a good pitch and age for the often cantankerous doctor, he's able to spout technobable with ease, and this is such a massive playing against type role for him too. Ratchet is the most heroic character he's ever voice, yes he's grouchy and kind of a jerk at times but he has a heart of gold and that's where he truly shines as well as being able to pull of his more emotional moments and comedic moments like whenever he yells out "I NEEDED THAT!" It's because of all these qualities, is why I also hear Jeffrey's voice for Ratchet in the MTMTE comics and even the Marvel G1 comics too. I really hope Ratchet comes back in RID with Jeffrey reprising because it would be oh so much fun.

I also love his other performances as The Leader, Question, Scarecrow and Rat King.

@Autovolt I completely agree, I could also hear Jeffrey's voice for Ratchet in the comics and in fanfiction stories, same with the Leader, Scarecrow, Rat King, Question and every character he voiced and played, he's the best actor I ever seen and my idol :)

@Autovolt Looks like you got your wish :).

I'm really happy that Jeffrey Combs returned as Ratchet in Transformers RID Season 2.

He really is excellent in the role.

I'm hoping that we'll see him a bit more in the role in the upcoming seasons if they do continue to expand on the corrupt Cybertronian council subplot.

I actually did manage to watch the first Re-Animator movie sometime last October, it really wasn't much to write home about outside of Jeffrey's performance as Hebert West. Basically the only really noteworthy character in that whole movie.


Happy Birthday Jeffrey Combs!

Great and Underrated Character Actor and VA in Every Way.

Jeffrey Combs is one those actors I find that for every role he does with his similar voice, he manages to always sound more distinct than what may really seem.

He is awesome because of that.

@DreamMaster08X I feel the exact same way about Lance Henriksen.
