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

Crispin [=McDougal=] Freeman (born February 9, 1972) 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, such as 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]].
* OlderThanTheyLook
* PigeonholedVoiceActor: At the start of his career, he is often cast as [[{{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]].
