Christopher David Patton (born March 15, 1971) is an American voice actor working for ADV Films/Sentai Filmworks, Seraphim Digital, FUNimation Entertainment, and Bang Zoom! Entertainment.

He is known for voicing Shin Kazama in Area 88, Tatsuhiro Sato in Welcome to the N.H.K., Sousuke Sagara in Full Metal Panic!, Greed in Fullmetal Alchemist, and Asura in Soul Eater.

Career

Born in Houston, Texas, Patton started acting/singing in Opera and Musical Theatre at the age of ten. He began his Voiceover career in 1998 with ADV Films. He has voiced over 200 Anime titles since then, including iconic shows such as Dragon Ball Z, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Soul Eater.

Chris has also narrated over eighty Audiobooks, fronted a synthpop band called Paul Lynde is Dead, written a YA book about emo vampires called Scene Immortal.

In 2010, Patton announced his decision to leave anime dubbing to work in other areas of voice performing such as audiobooks, although he stated he was willing to return to any of his past roles if more seasons are created for the series he worked on. However since 2012 he's wound up working relatively frequently with the newly formed Sentai Filmworks, getting cast in a continually growing list of their acquisitions.

Patton moved to Annapolis, Maryland in 2013, and occasionally flew back to Houston to perform some roles for anime, but has since moved back to Houston. Since 2017, he currently resides in Los Angeles.
