    Absolutely. Output-wise they're Sam L Jackson minus the mainstream white acceptance...

    Keith David definitely is. Dude has been consistent for 30 plus years, been in stone cold classics like the thing and they live, lent his voice to classic animation like gargoyles and spawn. And never puts in a bad performance. Even a bit part like what he did in the nice guys is made better just because he’s doing it.

    He’s worked with Spielberg, Carpenter, stone, spike, Scorsese, rami, and was the first voice of black panther :wow:

    Cliff is underrated too.. .His comedic timing is off the charts.... he gave you characters like Cutty and Pinky, which made Friday and Dead Presidents classics... and he was bytch ass Chauncy on top of that....

    I don’t think KD is underrated, he’s always working, and I’m sure he’s seen as one of the top VO actors out there.

    I think Clifton Powell is right where he’s supposed to be, his body of work is pretty accurate to his talent level, not sure what you cats are seeing :manny:
