    Every cartoon I turn to I hear Bulkheads voice. The guy who voices Bulkhead must get really busy. Has anyone run into him voicing more than 3 actors in the week?

    Makes me think that he might get really busy with other projects that he'll stop voicing bulkhead, so then they will kill him off in like season 3. Unless he makes it that far.

    I doubt they'll kill Bulkhead off now, especially when they had a chance to do so. You're right about KM Richardson having a lot to do though; his character might just get less dialogue and prominence, with other characters like Smokescreen and Arcee appearing more in the foreground.

    Kevin Michael Richardson voices every animated person.

    Frank Welker voices every animated animal.


    They are the entirety of the voice acting business

    Correction, he did GI Joe Renegades.
    He seems to be in just about every show I watch, him and Clancy Brown. I'll add Young Justice and another cancellation, Thundercats to that list.

    I imagine God's voice sounding like that of Kevin Michael Richardson.

    Dude, I know! I was just talking about this on Sunday with a friend of mine. I personally don't like that he's on so many shows - mainly because it's the SAME DAMN VOICE. It's like he doesn't even try to change it up; he just throws out the same thing.

    To make it worse, he even plays basically the same character in ALL his shows.

    Bulkhead? The team's "big muscle" guy.
    Kilowog? The team's "big muscle" guy.
    Roadblock? The team's "big muscle" guy.
    Panthro? The team's "big muscle" guy.

    ...and now?

    Shredder? The evil "big muscle" guy, lol.

    What do you expect with that kind of a voice? Clancy Brown is kind of the same way, except he throws in an accent once in a while.

    Not everyone can be like Phil LaMarr and go from Samurai Jack to Green Lantern John Stewart.

    Well with a voice like that, not much room to switch it up lol. It's like if James Earl Jones or Morgan Freeman tried to change up how they sound lol, wouldn't be as nice.

    And =P yeah, he's always the big muscle guy, or the chubby black guy (like he is in real life lol), but that voice can only work for such positions...unless we want him playing a scrawny bookworm =P.

    I think i heard his voice on a cleaning commercial too, something about 'cleaning the pipes', innuendo all the time lol

    Haha, yeah - I just remembered that one. I edited my post.


    True, true. It's hard to get get a lot of range/variety with a voice like that, but it's like he's not even trying to BE each character. It's like he's just using the exact same voice for each. But yeah, it doesn't help him any that shows keep giving him essentially the same role over and over again...

    He does also voice Cleveland Jr in the Cleveland Show. Say what you will about the show at least he cant be accused of using the same voice.

    Yes, he did. That voice that KMR did for the Joker in that series didn't sound similar to the characters he currently does the voice of now.

    I heard this but never really looked it up. If he really does play Cleveland Jr then he CAN do very different voices, but still, that kind fo voice is more for comedy, where his talking voice cna be big, strong or 'sexy'(like in the commercial), all in one lol
