Chuck Huber as a teenager is an interesting choice. Kinda curious if that will work

Most likely he'll be using the same voice he uses for either Android 17 or Hiei. Those are his best "teenage" roles I'm familiar with.

Its becoming increasingly difficult for me to pry up any enthusiasm for most dubs released in the last six months it feels like most ADR Directors are playing it way to safe with casting choices especially with the lead roles in the broadcast dubs. I've seen Clifford Chapin in such a role countless times now while not a bad actor he simply lacks gravitas or the "IT" factor that creates next level actors with genuine talent that work in the dubbing industry. I would of been more likely to at least checked out the first episode of the dub if a new rising actor like Stephen Sanders or Brian Olvera was thrown into the lead role instead. ADR Directors are far to intent playing it safe with their usual casting choices then wanting to create a unique dubbing product that isn't another mediocre drone clone that just vanishes with the rest of ordinary material that is flooding the current market. If you want my attention and money then strive to cast/direct a dub that is actually worthwhile and out of the box.

I find Strait's casting choices in general to be pretty hit and miss (more misses than hits) but this cast would be pretty solid if Huber and Solusod's roles were switched.
