He has a pretty awesome voice. It's amazing that they got him for the Naruto dub.

Keone Young has the most wise, sage like voice I've ever heard. It's awesome. He even works pretty well as villains too.

Happy 70th Mr. Young!

I was especially surprised and thrilled to hear him play a character in Naruto Shippuden!

Here's to another 10 years.

Happy Birthday Keone Young!

My top 10 favourite roles of his are:

1.) Luong Lao Shi (American Dragon: Jake Long)
2.) Jeong Jeong (Avatar: The Last Airbender)
3.) Hard Master (G.I Joe Renegades)
4.) Storm Shadow (G.I Joe)
5.) The Emperor (Young) (Samurai Jack)
6.) Old Monk (Samurai Jack)
7.) Martin Li/Mr. Negative (Ultimate Spider-Man)
8.) Jei (TMNT)
9.) Super Ninja (Chuck Norris: Karate Kommandos)
10.) Jun Sato (Star Wars: Rebels)

It's great that Keone Young has been in a lot of new things as of late.

It was great hearing him voice in two episodes of the final season of Samurai Jack, one as that bandit that the Emperor brutally slaughters (ironic since he once voiced the character when he was younger) and two as the Old Monk, his delivery of "This is terrible" made me chuckle.

also cool hearing him on TMNT as Jei. I'm very far behind on the show but his Jei sounded quite deliciously evil.

I also really dug his performance as Mr. Negative. I'm not that familiar with the character but Keone's performance was so hammy and over the top, I couldn't help but enjoy.

Happy Birthday Keone Young!

One of the best cool old wise mentors in the voice acting business. He's great in roles like Luong Lao Shi, Jeong Jeong, Hard Master, Storm Shadow and Silver Samurai.

His Super Ninja was absolutely hilarious. So hammy and over the top, definitely a bright spot in Chuck Norris: Karate Kommandos.

It was also cool to hear him in Star Wars: Rebels as Jun Sato. It has been quite a while since Keone Young has had a recurring voice role in a series.

@keoneyo Well...we have not!! Thanks for stopping by the site! We got your emails and are working on a response for you!

@keoneyo Hey, Keone, I happened to see a rerun of Dude Where's My Car and realized that Mr. Lee (you) was also one of my favorite actors from Deadwood, Mr. Wu! Had to look you up to confirm and was pleasantly surprised to find that you've done some amazing voice work on many of my favorite cartoons over the years. Keep up the great work and I'll be looking for you in your next projects.

A fan in Vietnam.
