In the world of dubbing, he's played Treize Khushrenada in Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, Sesshomaru in InuYasha, Recoome in the Ocean Group dub of Dragon Ball Z, Protoman.EXE in Mega Man NT Warrior, and Batou in Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex. In video games, he's best known as Clank in the Ratchet and Clank franchise, played Captain America and Nick Fury in Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2, Mysterio in Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions, Commissoner Gordon in Batman: Arkham City, and Logan Carter in Dead Island.
He is also the announcer for Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, and voiced all those commercials for Viagra featuring the eternally-creepily-smiling "Bob".
