With nearly 30 years of voice acting experience, Diskin has voiced a multitude of characters in video games, anime, and western animation.

Some of his more recognizable anime roles include Joseph Joestar in "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure", Ban in "The Seven Deadly Sins", Sai in "Naruto Shippuden", Death Gun in "Sword Art Online II", Cutemon and Shoutmon in "Digimon Fusion", and Gurio Umino in "Sailor Moon Classic" and "Sailor Moon Crystal".

Additionally, he has voiced some smaller (but memorable) characters in fan favorites "Bungou Stray Dogs", "Kill la Kill", "Fate/Apocrypha", "One Punch Man", "Hunter x Hunter", "Durarara!! x2", "Accel World", and "Tiger & Bunny".

Diskin has many popular western animation credits to his name as well. He has starred as Numbuh 1 and Numbuh 2 in "Codename: Kids Next Door", Eugene in "Hey Arnold!", Hahn in "Avatar: The Last Airbender", Boris Badenov in "The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle", Haida in "Aggretsuko", and Eddie Brock/Venom in "The Spectacular Spider-Man".

He has also had roles in many video game franchises such as "Mega Man", "Naruto Shippuden: Ninja Storm", "Tales of Berseria", "Fire Emblem", "Marvel VS Capcom", "BlazBlue", "Kingdom Hearts", "Shin Megami Tensei", "Sonic Boom", and "Digimon".

Ben Diskin recently helped make Pokemon history as Professor Oak in "Pokemon: The Two Professors", a series of online shorts that introduced the new Mythical Pokemon Meltan in "Pokemon GO". Meltan is not only the first Pokemon to be introduced in a game outside of the main series, he is also the first ever Mythical Pokemon that can evolve...

...perhaps Ben will reprise this role in the highly anticipated "Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu!" and "Pokemon: Let's Go, Eevee!" for the Nintendo Switch?
We will find out on November 16!
