    Technically the actors I put down are based on which actor I envision as this character and tbh, you never know which actor/actress they might choose for this character in the English dub of HxH. The actors I listed are pretty much based on the following:

    1. Actors/Actress that Bang Zoom been regularly using these days.
    2. Actor's that tend to be re-used in the HxH dub (e.g. Ray Chase, Jon Allen, Tom Bauer, etc...)
    3. Those you wouldn't expect to be cast as this particular character (e.g. Tara Sands as Biscuit, Kira Buckland as Zushi, Erica Lindbeck as Pakunoda etc..)

    Keep in mind, some of the HxH Dream castings for the Chimera Ant arc (specifically for Reina, Kite, etc...) were made since the Summer (May/June) even prior before the Toonami promos have aired.

    In regards to the "same seiyuu/same voice actor" topic for English dubs in LA, it is a bit divided but for the most part, they normally would cast the voice actor that fits the character, not just on the voice. Their are some exceptions where they may cast an actor that has a similar voice to their seiyuu or sharing a couple of roles from the Japanese voice actor (e.g. Erik Kimerer with Yuki Kaji, Mela Lee with Kana Ueda, Richard Epcar with Akio Otsuka).

    In the case with Hunter x Hunter, the only times where you got the English dub voice actor sharing roles from their seiyuu from the show are Ray Chase with Nobuaki Kanemitsu and Derek Stephen Prince with Takeharu Onishi. But for the most part the casting director will cast someone else for the role instead of reusing the same actor for that seiyuu, like having Erika Harlacher as Kurapika in the Miyuki Sawashiro role, Kirk Thornton in the Takehito Koyasu role, and Faye Mata in the Kana Ueda role.
