Liam O'Brien (born May 28 1976) is an American voice actor. Chances are that if you notice a character who seems aristocratic or have noble standing, they'll have this guy voicing them. Most likely characteristics of his voice are an almost-faux British accent or a very laid-back demeanor. And he doesn't differentiate that much--

--"You want any voice differentiation? That's Gaara!"

His real forte seems to be voicing characters who have more than a few screws loose in their head, from the eccentric to the completely batshit insane. In fact, this is what shot him to fame when he voiced Gaara in Naruto. He has a knack for Ambiguously Gay characters, and one hell of an Evil Laugh that's present in just about every villain he's ever played.

He's currently married to fellow voice actress Amy Kincaid (who played Shirley Fenette in Code Geass and Kotone Himekawa in To Heart), and also does a butt-load of ADR directing (Most notably for the most recent entries in the Resident Evil series).

Texan counterparts? J. Michael TatumChuck Huber and John Burgmeier. Canadian Counterparts? Michael Adamthwaite, Ted ColeMark Hildreth and Brian DrummondTodd Haberkorn is his Spiritual Successor in terms of the villain typecast, which can be compared to that of Keith Silverstein and Doug Erholtz.
