Alessandro Juliani as "L" huh? That will be interesting.
I usually don't watch dubs, but with those actors...I'm curious since I know of them all.
We'll have to see how it turns out. ^^

Pretty much the same for me. Never seen any of his other work aside from Nightcrawler or maybe somewhere that I didn't realize.

Brad Swaile FTW.

appearently Ocean went through like, 30 actors see who did the best job showing emotion, and brad came up in first. ive herd him as rock in BL, he did a great job at that, its also gonna be funny hearing vegeta's voice actor (Don't worry, he's greatly improved since then) for Ryuk

Yeah, I have no idea who these people are but I adamantly avoid most english dubbed shows so thats to be expected.
