Rest in Peace, Cole Brown. You were amazing as Blackbeard.

Dang. I just rewatched Baccano recently and didn't realize he was voice of the president of the daily days.

A very unfortunate tragedy. Sad

R.I.P., Mr. Brown. Thank you for your years of voice-acting and service of firefighter and paramedic.

It's a shame, I thought he did an excellent job as Blackbeard. Rest in peace Cole Brown.

It seems that a lot of voice actors have died over the coarse of the show's(One Piece) run, more so on the Japanese side than the English side.

Such a shame he's a really good actor and preformed all of his roles perfectly. RIP Cole Brown. Sad

This was actually the first I heard of FUNi's dub of OP, somebody linked this scene around the time it first aired and I was floored. I mean, obviously FUNi was going to do a better job than 4Kids, no doubt, but actually hearing it was like a dream come true. Cole Brown definitely did the character justice.

My condolences to his loved ones. It seems he had a fulfilling life as a voice actor, firefighter, and paramedic. May he RIP.

Blackbeard's VA gone? Nooooooooo! I loved his voice for the guy. He was a perfect fit! Not only a VA, but a firefighter and a paramedic too. All that, and he was only 60.

R.I.P. Mr. Brown, I will definitely not forget what you brought to voice acting.

People in 2016 have been dropping like flies.

Anyone know the cause of death? I don't want to be mourning over someone's suicide again.
