Prepare for trouble (and make it double)! An ingredient known by many names, you might know James through his currently voicing himself (That’s Team Rocket’s James!) on Pokemon, a role that he’s called his own since the Hoenn Saga. He also voices Meowth! If you’re not into Pokemon, maybe you remember him as the voice of the underhanded Weevil Underwood in Yu-Gi-Oh! or Vector the Crocodile in Sonic X. A proud American (and New Jersey-an!), we would certainly be remiss if we did not mention his love for music. Influenced by Pop, Rock, Jazz, and Classical styles, James has both performed and recorded music alongside notable artists such as John Tesh, Ace Frehley, Gerry Mulligan, Garland Jeffreys, and Katey Sagal, among many, many others in his decades-spanning career.
