Heroes stars to voice Wolverine, Iron Man anime leads


I know many of you have voiced your dismay at the Wolverine anime, along with its Iron Man counterpart, though I admit I'm intrigued. As for their English voice overs, I am both enthusiastic and concerned. First up is Heroes star Adrian Pasdar. You might remember him as the flying elder Petrelli brother. Pasdar will be voicing Tony Stark, which I think he can pull off. Pasdar had several minutes of political swagger in Heroes and I think if he tries he can manage the self-assured persona that is undoubtedly Tony Stark.

As for Wolverine, I think we've got a bit of a problem. Another Heroes star, Milo Ventimiglia, also known as Peter Petrelli, is set to voice Logan through his adventure in the Japanese crime world. Personally, I'm not sure that Ventimiglia has the roughness he needs to portray a good Wolverine. In Heroes, he was often soft spoken, though sometimes he vented his rage. I, however, am not convinced of his ability to pull of a war-hardened warrior with a brash nature and tough exterior. 

What do you think of these casting choices? Truthfully, I don't know if either actor is really suited towards voice work, but I'm willing to give them a chance--even if I have doubts about the younger Petrelli brother's abilities to uphold Logan's character.
