Biography

Rogers started off as a stage and television actor. He had always been a fan of anime, and in 2001, he got his first role, a small part on Assemble Insert as Prime Minister. Since then, he has gone on to voice many notable characters in various anime series. He is known among fans and coworkers for his sense of humor.

Rogers began to provide voices for the Pokémon anime, starting with The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon, when Pokémon USA and TAJ Productions took over the dubbing and distribution of the anime. He had taken over the roles of Brock, Scott, and Drew for the ninth season, and requested to provide the voice of Bonsly as well. Most notably, he provided the voice of Brock's Sudowoodo and Croagunk, and also Ash's Infernape, for Pokémon the Series: Diamond and Pearl. As of The Rise of Darkrai, Rogers began doing the script timing for episodes. With the departure of Brock as a series regular at the end of Pokémon the Series: Diamond and Pearl, Rogers' contributions to the series was reduced, although he did continue to voice minor characters (such as Ghetsis) and Pokémon, including Cilan's Stunfisk and Dawn's Quilava, and reprised as Brock for subsequent appearances.

Many of his Pokémon roles were previously done by Darren Dunstan or Eric Stuart in the 4Kids dub.

Rogers posted under the name "NewBrock" at Bulbagarden Forums and Serebii.Net Forums; his first post was an open letter about the recasting controversy.[1]
