The voice of Light is Brad Swaille (Nobunaga- InuYasha, Quatre- Gundam Wing, Nighcrawler- X-men: Evolution)
And if there's a perfect voice for crazy in English, it's him.
No one can hold a candle to the Japanese version, but for once in my life.... I don't hate the English version. *walks away in semi-stunned silence*
Interesting, I have read that Alessandro Juliani is going to play L, who is actually the same actor who plays Lieutenant Gaeta on Battlestar Galactica, it is also his first major role in a anime. I actually have a lot of confidence in Ocean Group who is doing the dub, due to their great work on the Black Lagoon dub recently, which is another dub which I think actually outdoes the original, though that has a little to do with the backgrounds of many of the characters in the Black Lagoon universe, actual accents to the voices.
Ocean Group's dubs have always been okay, though, haven't they? I know there are some terrible ones, but I'm not surprised that it would be Ocean Group that comes out with a decent one.
