Eric Stuart recording for Slayers
Eric Stuart (born October 18, 1967) is an American voice actor, voice director, singer, and musician, who worked on the English-language dub of the Pokémon anime by 4Kids Entertainment.
Stuart, the son of a criminal attorney and a modern dancer, grew up in Brooklyn. He was born October 18, 1967. He formed his first band at age 14, inspired by his music teacher. He learned to play the guitar in eighth grade, and was writing and recording songs by the tenth grade. Before graduating high school, he had recorded over 40 original songs.
After high school, Stuart worked as a production assistant and played shows in the New York City area. As his career continued, he and his band went on to open for such famous acts such as Chicago, Ringo Starr and His All Starr Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Jethro Tull, and Peter Frampton.
Stuart's most famous roles on the Pokémon anime are that of Brock and James. He played these until the end of season 8 in July 2006 when Pokémon USA took over the right to air the anime. His main roles were taken over by Bill Rogers and Billy Beach. Stock footage was used for seasons nine through eleven for the Pokémon he voiced, but those roles were eventually taken over as well.
He is alleged to have announced Brock's surname to be Harrison in a July 2006 interview in K-Zone magazine.
In a 2011 interview, Stuart said his favorite Pokémon movie was Jirachi: Wish Maker because he was able to work on the production team.
