Default Casting Choices that Turned Out Better then Expected

Inspired by Soul-Dragon's "Casting Choices that Were Only Good on Paper" thread, what were some casting choices that made you go "hmm...not sure if I agree with this," only to later be surprised at how well it fit?

Here are some I can think of (and, of course, your mileage may vary):

- Patton Oswalt as Uncle Ben (Marvel's Spider-Man).

- Diedrich Bader as Batman (Brave and the Bold).

- Jesse McCartney as Dick Grayson (Young Justice).

- Ben Diskin as Joseph Joestar (Jojo's Bizarre Adventures).

- Kira Buckland as Kuroyukihime/Black Lotus (Accel World).

Mark Ryan as Lockdown in Transformers: Age of Extinction.

I legit thought this was a hold-over voice and it'd be ill-fitting like his Bumblebee but wow he was great in the role.

Did Crunchyroll unionize that dub because Jamieson Price is credited with his real name as opposed to a pseudonym?

Vic as Rohan in JoJo is the best casting in DiU so far. He outshines practically everyone else so much it's not even funny. I put him on par with Takahiro Sakurai based on what he's shown so far.

EDIT: He still is the best voice in the dub but #KickVic. Man, Bang Zoom.

I'd also point to Yuri Lowenthal as Marth, though you'd have to look to his FEW performance and his Legendary Marth performance in FEH. When directed right he captures Marth's vulnerability and self-doubt while retaining his heroism.
