[[LightNovel/FateZero Rejoice, Troper. Crispin Freeman will be described here.]]

Crispin [=McDougal=] Freeman is one of the more popular voice actors in the business, and, well, what can we say, the guy's got talent for characters that are HotBlooded or [[SmugSnake smug]] or [[{{Jerkass}} a complete jerk]] or [[TheCape heroic]] or [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]] or badass or...just about anything.

Crispin seems to be fascinated by the use of myths in anime, and regularly hosts panels at cons on the subject. He's also a fan of Creator/HayaoMiyazaki, and finally got the chance to provide a voice for the dub of ''Anime/HowlsMovingCastle'' with the (albeit minor) role of Prince Justin. He's also quite fond of Opera and actually sang some at a convention.

He seems to be cast alongside Creator/QuintonFlynn frequently, in addition to [[RelationshipVoiceActor either]] [[Manga/WolfsRain fighting]] [[Anime/LastExile side]]-[[Anime/WitchHunterRobin by]]-[[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya side]] [[Anime/EurekaSeven with]] or harboring a [[Anime/CodeGeass personal]] [[LightNovel/{{Durarara}} grudge]] against Creator/JohnnyYongBosch. His sister is actress [[Series/{{Smallville}} Cassidy]] [[Series/TheVampireDiaries Freeman]]. No relation to now-retired Creator/{{Funimation}} voice actor Creator/ScottFreeman.

He also has a podcast entitled ''Podcast/VoiceActingMastery'', focusing on providing tips, tricks, and insider information on becoming a voice actor.

[[UsefulNotes/UnionsInHollywood Due to union bylaws]], Crispin stopped doing non-union voice work since 2005, but still continues to do union voice work in anime occasionally.

Has dubbed [[Manga/{{Hellsing}} two]] [[LightNovel/FateZero roles]] of Japan's Creator/JojiNakata.

Also has a Website/{{Twitter}} [[http://twitter.com/crispinfreeman/ account]] and a Website/{{YouTube}} [[http://www.youtube.com/user/crispinfreeman account]].

!!Tropes associated with Crispin Freeman:
* AxCrazy: Some of his most renowned roles. For example, [[Manga/{{Hellsing}} Alucard]]
* BadassBaritone: His vocal range is naturally deep [[note]]he's a trained operatic lyric baritone[[/note]]. Even some of the teenage characters he voiced have a deeper register like Kyon.
* DeadpanSnarker: Some of his roles, particularly Kyon.
* LargeHam: When push comes to shove (I.E. the director tells him to), he can pull it off very well. Case In Point: [[Anime/CodeGeass Orange]].
* PigeonholedVoiceActor: At the start of his career, he is often casted into [[{{Bishonen}} young and handsome men in anime]]. After joining the union, he branched out into more varied roles.
* ManOfAThousandVoices: AxCrazy psychopaths, [[TroubledButCute brooding young men]], badasses, {{Large Ham}}s, {{Badass Normal}}s...this man can do all of them and more. Just check out [[http://www.crispinfreeman.com/ his demo reel]].
