There once was a man named Eric Stuart, who was king of the voice actors! He had fame, power, and talent beyond your wildest dreams! Before they troped him on the internet, these were the final words his description said:

Eric Stuart (born October 18, 1967 in Brooklyn, New York) is an American voice actor. He has done anime roles mainly under 4Kids, most notably Brock, James, and Kaiba. His most favorite anime roles are that of James and Gourry.

Stuart is also an accomplished singer. He formed his first band at age 14, learned to play the guitar in eighth grade, and was writing and recording songs by the tenth grade. Before graduating high school, he had recorded over 40 original songs!

He retired from voice acting to work on new material for his band. However, he reprised his role as Gourry in Slayers Revolution-R in 2010, and started making more frequent guest appearances at anime conventions in 2011. He also reprised his role of Seto Kaiba in 2017 for Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions.

Before he retired from voice-acting, his Californian counterpart was Johnny Yong Bosch note . His Canadian counterparts were Brad Swaile, Kirby Morrow and Andrew Francis. His Dallas counterparts were Todd Haberkorn, Micah Solusod, and Austin Tindle. His Houston counterparts were David Matranga and Blake Shepard . His Texan counterparts was Chris Patton note .

Despite doing a lot of voice work for 4Kids, he doesn't seem to be particularly fond of the company if this video is any indication. This is because he was getting paid more for commercial voiceover work than dubbing episodes for 4Kids (he was paid about $75 for dubbing a single episode of Pokémon: The Series), and when they decided to use voice clips for commercials, he wasn't getting paid for that anymore. He also admitted how terrible 4Kids' adaptation of One Piece was.

He started his own production called Crossing the G.O.D.S. and has done so alongside Dan Green as well as Anthony Salerno, fellow former 4Kids and generally New York based dub alumni, an audio-visual novel of sorts. It will be released in segments beginning in early 2018:Crossing The G.O.D.S. Trailer.
