Describe Chris Patton? Not a problem.

You may recognise him as the voice of Greed (first one, anyways) in Fullmetal Alchemist, Sousuke Sagara in Full Metal Panic!, Sho Fukamachi in Guyver, Sato in Welcome to the N.H.K., Turles in Dragon Ball Z, and Creed Diskenth in Black Cat, amongst many others.

Toward the end of his career in anime dubbing he became well-known for voicing Crazy Awesome people like Graham Spector and Tatsuhiro Sato. These roles allowed him to tap into his inner Large Ham.

In 2010 Patton announced his decision to leave anime dubbing to work in other areas of voice performing such as audiobooks, although he stated he was willing to return to any of his past roles if more seasons are created for the series he worked on. However since 2012 he's wound up working relatively frequently with the newly formed Sentai Filmworks, getting cast in a continually growing list of their recent property acquisitions. Here is his Twitter account.

He moved to Maryland recently, but is willing to commute to Houston whenever necessary for role reprisals, and he's still regularly showing up in cast lists of anime dubs in smaller parts and even the very occasional major role. It is however only a fraction of what he used to do.

Not to be confused with Mike Patton or the last Governor of Hong Kong.

His California counterparts are Johnny Yong Bosch and Todd Haberkorn, his Canadian counterparts are Brad Swaile and Kirby Morrow. His Japanese counterparts are, arguably, Takahiro Sakurai, Yuuichi Nakamura, Hiro Shimono, and Akira Ishida; he even mentioned in a recent interview that he was once cast in a number of shows where he was "always either the pretty boy or the villain." Fellow Sentai voice actors David Matranga and Blake Shepard are sometimes considered to be his direct successors.
