Happy Birthday Justin Cook!

I still find it amazing that he was only nineteen when he was first cast as Yusuke Urameshi in Yu Yu Hakusho's English dub. I think this might be one of the most fitting leading dub performances I've ever seen. if I'm going to be honest, He's way more fitting than Nozomu Sasaki's ever was IMO. He just had a more punk-like sound to his voice which just helps add more personality and makes his character development feel stronger. I'm also amazed he did the voices for Seiryu of the Saint Beasts, Kuro Momotaro and even Puu. Wow Just Wow.

His work in the Dragon Ball franchise is great too, He's awesome as Raditz,I love the way he plays him up as a total psycho, he's so enjoyable in the role. His Super Buu voice, I'm amazed he's capable of pulling that off. The definition of evil sounds deep. I'm sure it was pitch shifted but if it was, it was a good use of it. He's also good as the older Dende, sounding very youthful, friendly and outgoing.

It's pretty amazing he's one of FUNimation's top executive producers and I'm glad that he's been doing more voice acting again as of late, It'd be cool if he got to direct another dub in the future.

As if his legendary portrayal of our favorite Spirit Detective, Yuusuke Urameshi, wasn't enough! His clearly diverse range of both malevolent and beneign characters is astounding. He is one of the few English Voice Actors I admire.

They really underestimated his ability since his performance as Yusuke; he's worthy of more major roles.

He directed some solid dubs. Shame he doesn't direct anymore since becoming a head producer for Funimation.

He really is a great Yusuke; I can't believe it took me so long to finally watch Yu Yu Hakusho (I only watched it for the first time last year).
