He also has some awesome news to share with you concerning the anime One Piece, appearing as the “uber-evil Spandam” (picturedbelow).  “He appears over a long arc so there’ll be a whole lot of douchery goin’ down with him” as Chris puts it.

Another character to tout would be The Joker from the upcoming Lego Batman: DC Heroes Unite movie (pictured below).  LB The Movie is the tie-in for Lego Batman 2, the video game.

    I think it’s great Chris Smith will be voicing Spandam in One Piece. That’s great news.

    As for the interview, I’m interested in hearing his opinions on his role as Emperor Mateus in Final Fantasy Dissidia Duodecim, and his other roles, too.
