  • Funimation VA Cole Brown, 60, passes away

    Widgets Magazine
    It seems not even Funimation could escape the chain of 2016 deaths, as Cole Brown passed away on November 18th.

    Cole Brown's BTVA page.

    This is a huge blow for One Piece fans such as myself, as he voiced not only Jaguar D. Saul, but also recurring character Marshall D. Teach/Blackbeard. He did an amazing job and gave Blackbeard a truly fitting voice. He will be missed, and condolences go out to his family and friends, may he rest in peace.

    Man 60 isn't even that old these days, shame.

      Aww man, he voiced the Celestial Spirit King in Fairy Tail. He did an amazing job on that. SMILE.

        Such awful news. I was just listening to him on one of the most recent One Piece commentaries... probably after he had already died, actually, and he sounded like the nicest guy, so full of life. He was such an iconic Blackbeard that I can't imagine who will be able to fill his shoes.

          This is extremely sad, he did a fantastic job as Blackbeard on One Piece and those will be some very big shoes. Also a huge shame as that character's appearances are far from over. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
