I don't know if he's told this story before but at his panel at Anime North Jerry was asked if he found doing a Russian accent for Viktor was made easier because he voiced Russia.

He actually said he thinks that's how he was cast. Funimation holds meetings regarding how actors get cast in each role, they discuss availability, logistics, etc. and all the voice/casting directors attend them. Sonny Strait then came up to Jerry at the end of the meeting and asked if he could do a Russian accent. It turns out Chris Bevins was right there and he said, "oh, he literally played Russia in Hetalia." Sonny was surprised and that was the last Jerry heard of it until a while later when he found out he got the role.

If Funimation ever does voice work on a Marvel Animated Project, Jerry Jewell is the PERFECT man for voicing Carnage.

Happy Birthday Jerry Jewell!

My top 10 favourite roles of his are:

1.) Barry the Chopper (Fullmetal Alchemist)
2.) Claire Stanfield/The Rail Tracer (Baccano!)
3.) Kodaka Hasegawa (Haganai)
4.) Viktor Nikiforov (Yuri!!! On Ice)
5.) Jin (Yu Yu Hakusho)
6.) Suzaku of the Saint Beasts (Yu Yu Hakusho)
7.) Lyon Vastia (Fairy Tail)
8.) Russia (Hetalia)
9.) Principal Nezu (My Hero Academia)
10.) Ajuka Beelzebub (High School DXD)

I gotta say his performance as Viktor is definitely one of the major highlights from last year's dub of Yuri!!! On Ice. Jerry was such a perfect fit for the part in just about every way. They couldn't have cast him better.

JJ is an amazing VA & director. And what I enjoy pretty much everything he's done, personally I think his portrayal of Kodaka in "Haganai" could NOT have been done by anyone else. Jerry's voice alone as well as his wit & time via intonation alone aren't simply superb. Quite frankly the same goes for Sena and Jad Saxton - they played off each other perfectly.

The rest of the cast as well as the crew all did an excellent job - credit where it's due, they all had a hand in making a it great. But JJ & Jad really knocked it out of the park (as did Alexis Tipton playing the uber-horn dog lab coat wearing nerd, and her getting to coin the phrase "yaoi hole" was EFFIN HYSTERICAL!!!)! Great series all around.

I wished he voiced for more roles in anime but I guess given he is a ADR director now, he probably can't, even though I enjoy his roles immensely like he did in Shiki, Haganai, and recently Assassination Classroom and a couple others.

@TDarioF96 Didn't you watch The Disastrous Life of Saiki K ? He's the main character.

My Hero Academia has taught me that "mouse principal" is the role Jerry Jewell was born to play.
said at 2:46 PM on Sat Jul 30 2016
@RobustCactus Funny enough Jerry shares the role of Principal Nezu with Yasuhiro Takato, and the both of them also voice Russia in the Hetalia franchise.

He does a great job singing the ending for DBZ Kai. It's weird thinking Barry the Chopper sings such a positive song.

Happy Birthday Jerry Jewell!

Another of the long lasting voice actors from FUNimation's earlier days. He is excellent in pretty much all of his roles whether they'd be psychos or the straight man.

Barry the Chopper was the first performance of his I had ever seen and still one of his best. Claire Stanfield/The Rail Tracer is a really close second, being just as crazy awesome. I might be in the minority but I liked him as Kadoka in Haganai, I found Jerry's dry voice for the role just complimented the character quite nicely. He was also good as Lyon Vastia, Russia, Ajuka Beelzebub and Priapos.

He is also nowadays an excellent ADR director like for whenever he takes over another series in a already established franchise that was directed by another ADR director, I think Jerry ends up making the dub sound even greater than it was prior. Examples include Freezing Vibration and The Certain Magical Index and Scientific Railgun series. His dub for Kamisama Kiss was also fantastic. I hope he directs the dub for a fourth season of High School DXD assuming we do get one, I mean honestly he should have directed BorN's dub instead of Cris George.

I also enjoyed his performance as Principal Nezu in My Hero Academia and his many roles on Yu Yu Hakusho including Suzaku of the Saint Beasts, Jin and Sakamoto.

Happy Birthday Jerry Jewell!

Been a couple years now and I think Jerry has turned out to be a great ADR Director! I'm guessing all that experience taking direction as an actor has helped. I like how Jerry brings out many great and unique performances from several established veterans but is also willing to give opportunities to new talent; and best of all those castings rarely feel forced compared to other ADR Directors who will continue to bombard viewers with the same up-and-comer/flavor of the year or always cast their personal favorite veteran(s) in all their dubs...

I also find it interesting how many ADR Directors will pass on directing the sequels (for whatever reason) and Jerry ends up doing an even better job than them.

As much as I liked Freezing's dub by Joel McDonald I think Freezing Vibration's dub by Jerry is even better.

Not a big Index/Railgun fan but I thought Index II and Railgun S were better dubs than their first seasons by Zach Bolton.

Of course there have been some iffy dubs too like Blood-C and Senran Kagura but if the shows themselves aren't that great there's only so much a guy can do right?

As for some of my favorite roles he's done over the years I really like: Jimmy Kudo, Natsuno and probably one of the most underrated performances of his career Odin/Ryuto Asamiya.

@lazydude500 - sorry, I know it's a couple years old now but I just read this. I actually agree with you almost entirely and think Jerry is an excellent VA as well as an unbelievably superb director. The only thing I disagree with is regarding "Blood-C" & "Senran Kagura" - I thought they were really good series. Especially Blood-C!

I know it's not as well liked as the original Blood series & it has a few hiccups, but I thought they ALL (cast & crew) did an incredible job, IMO. Especially as, for the most part, the series was used as little more than a lengthy, albeit necessary, introduction back into Saya's life until reaching the movie. (Due to Saya's "condition" there had to be SOME sort of oddball shenanigans like why they needed to trick her, the loony scientist who couldn't wait for the plan to bear fruit, the actual "villain" to basically shaft everyone who were expendable anyway, lol, etc. All necessary "zany" goings-on because that's what helped generate the STARK contrast between her character in the series, and true Saya from the movie.)

The movie I thought was epic good though right from jump street.

For Senran, while I agree with you on the "What they had to work with" comment, I still thought it was a trip. But, I also didn't REMOTELY take it seriously for even a moment! LOL - it was just one of those fun "boobie shows". Nothing like Freezing or High School DxD which have real storyline built in. Sure Senran had a plot but for the most part it was just another jiggle-fest designed mostly to help coin a few new, goofball phrases like "Shinoboobs" (from Brittney Karbowski's character) and other chuckle-worthy commentary.

For those who've been saying that Todd Haberkorn is the American Akira Ishida, I will say that Jerry fits the bill better for being similar to Akira; I can imagine him voicing Byakuya Togami in Danganronpa the animation.

I just love him in everything he plays! He has an easily recognizable voice(in a good way) and he plays a wide range of characters. To be honest I actually didn't recognize him in Fairy Tail as Lyon! I fangirled when I found out lol. I love him as Barry the Chopper especially because of how manic he sounds; so cool! He's fantastic as Kyo Sohma and I loved his small appearance as Arai in Ouran Highschool Host Club!

said at 4:39 PM on Tue Mar 26 2013
@Jarred95 Honestly I think Jerry is the only one suitable for Brook, At first I thought Vic Mignogna would be better at voicing Brook but once I think the voices he makes it will not fit Brook's Personality and Appearance.
