* ManOfAThousandVoices: His range is quite versatile, to say the least. He was originally hired by Bioware for ''Mass Effect'' to come up with the alien voices. Even though Bioware was impressed enough with him to hire him as the male Commander Shepard voice, he still voices several aliens in the trilogy, all of whom sound considerably different from his Shepard voice. This leads to plenty of TalkingToHimself within the trilogy for all the Male!Shepard players, with one of the most memorable moments being "Because he's a [[MemeticMutation Big Stupid Jellyfish]]!"
* PlatonicLifePartners: With Creator/JenniferHale.

Trivia.



* OneOfUs: He loves ''Mass Effect'', and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4xcCaw-23LE always plays the games as both a Paragon and a Renegade.]] He's cosplayed as Commander Shepard at several different conventions. He's also well-versed in many of the [[Memes/BioWare memes]] spawned by the series.
* PlatonicLifePartners: With Creator/JenniferHale.
* PromotedFanboy: Kind of. While he obviously wasn't a fan of ''Franchise/MassEffect'' when he was chosen for the role of Shepard, he's a big fan of actors like Creator/KeithDavid, Creator/JenniferHale, Creator/SethGreen, and Creator/LanceHenriksen and thought it was awesome to work with them.
* TalkingToHimself: Happens from time to time, given how he voices so many minor characters. In ''Franchise/MassEffect'', whenever Male!Shepard talks to a Hanar, a Vorcha, or a few other characters, this trope comes into play.
