Brotherhood English dub cast announced  
I've never been one for the English dub of FMA, but by way of announcement, the cast for Brotherhood was released today. Not surprisingly, it's much the same as it was before. :)


Reprising their roles from the first series:

Edward Elric – Vic Mignogna
Winry Rockbell – Caitlin Glass
Roy Mustang – Travis Willingham
Lust – Laura Bailey
Envy – Wendy Powell
Greed-- Chris Patton
Gluttony – Chris Cason
Maes Hughes – Sonny Strait
Fuhrer King Bradley – Ed Blaylock
Riza Hawkeye – Colleen Clinkenbeard
Jean Havoc – Mike McFarland

New Cast Members:
Alphonse Elric – Maxey Whitehead (Antonio from Romeo x Juliet, Czeslaw
Meyer from Baccano)
Scar – J Michael Tatum (Eneru from One Piece, Isaac from Baccano)
Isaac McDougal – Bryan Massey (Ladd from Baccano, Nino from Gunslinger
Girl: Il Teatrino)

Aaron Dismuke will be featured in another role later in the series.
FUNimation Entertainment will release “Fullmetal Alchemist:Brotherhood” on DVD beginning in Spring 2010.

I haven't heard any of Maxey Whitehead's work, so I hope she'll be a good Al. I am crossing my fingers that Aaron Dismuke doesn't end up as Ling, because that could be iffy, but I guess only time will tell!

Squee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sad thing about Aaron though, but I'm sure he'll make a good Ling.
Vic, and Travis, and Caitlin, and Laura, and Wendy, and everyone else!!!!
I feel faint.
Thank you so much for posting this!

Aaron's going to be Ling, I can feel it, and that just . . . doesn't sit right with me (which is the most polite way I can put it).

After hearing his work for the first time in the Ouran HSHC dub, I really wanted J Michael Tatum to play Ling, but I guess I can see him as Scar I think.
rhelpimtiredyo on September 25th, 2009 09:55 pm (UTC)
I don't think Aaron Dismuke is quite versatile enough a voice actor yet to master Ling without sounding just like Al, so I'm really hoping it's not him. I don't really see what other "significant role" could play, though. Ah well.

I think J Michael Tatum could pull Scar off, though. I'll miss his old VA though.

Who is Isaac McDougal?

Seriously, I thought I knew this series pretty well...

Any word on when production starts or when we can expect to see it broadcast? (Other than 'a really long time from now.')

Consider me stymied,

I am so happy to see Travis Willingham reprising his role! *squees*

...I haven't heard Maxey in anything, but here's hoping she pulls off a good Al. ;)

I am a sucker for Travis Willingham.

Having heard all of the new cast-members from their work in Baccano!, I think they'll all do fantastic, though I am pretty PO-ed that it looks like Aaron is definitely gonna get Ling. Terrible casting decision.

BUT NOT QUITE AS BAD AS ANN SAYING CAITLIN GLASS WILL BE REPLACING COLLEEN AS THE NEW CO-DIRECTOR?! why god why.
rhelpimtiredyo on September 25th, 2009 10:03 pm (UTC)
I know, Aaron as Ling would be pretty failtastic. Was Maxey Whitehead good? In your opinion, do you think they'll be a good Al?

... isn't Vic a little old to be playing Ed still? Then I'm in the mindset he and Caitlin, talented as they are, sounded far too old for their roles.

Yay for the rest! Oh, add that Chris Patton'll be reprising his role as Greed; he said so himself at a con earlier this year.
rhelpimtiredyo on September 25th, 2009 10:06 pm (UTC)
I agree with you. I think Vic is a great voice actor, but to me, he's always sounded wayyyyyyyyyyy too old. But I think there would be a major uproar with hardcore Vic fans if he didn't reprise his role. *shrug*

Oh, thanks for the information! I was wondering about that. I'll add him to the list.

Im Excited that they kept the same cast members for the majority of the roles. I also haven't heard anything from Maxey, so I'm hoping that Al will sound good. And I really love Aaron and all, but I really hope he doesn't get Ling... I don't think he will be able to pull off Ling well...

Apparently, she did Al's voice in one of the new OVAs, if you hadn't already seen that.

It's mainly just them laughing the whole time, so it's hard to get a good feel of how she'll be. I think you can tell she's a girl, but it could definitely work out.

Glad to know that the original cast for most of the characters, excluding Al T_T, are still voicing them. Personally I am a fan of Vic and Ranger, as I watched the dub from the beginning and grew to liking Ed best with his english voice, and then followed forth to liking some of the other roles Vic has done. So I'm excited to see it dubbed. xD Romi's Ed just doesn't sound right to my ears but we all have our opinions and choices. I just prefer his Ed. :)I don't really consider his voice sounding that old. I think he sounds young considering his age.
rhelpimtiredyo on September 25th, 2009 10:22 pm (UTC)
I think the cast you originally heard the series in makes a big difference. :) I watched the series in Japanese before I watched the dub, so I've always preferred Romi Paku's Ed, and her voice always felt more natural to me. However, I know that if I had heard the dub first, my opinion might have differed. :)

I am glad to see most of the original cast back, especially Travis as Roy.

Sad to see they had to recast Scar though. I am also sad about Al but I expected it and Aaron wouldn't have sounded the same anyways.
