Biography:
Voice actor Sonny Strait is best known for voicing Krillin on "Dragon Ball Z" and for illustrating the independently published comic book series "Elfquest." He was recently announced as the ADR director and the new voice of Allen Schezar for the FUNimation redub of "The Vision of Escaflowne."

As a voice actor, Strait is considered to be one of the most recognized in the business. Besides "Dragon Ball Z," he has worked on many popular animated series, including voicing Usopp in "One Piece"; Maes Hughes in "Fullmetal Alchemist"; and Cartoon Network's laid-back, robot host Toonami TOM. He has also worked as a writer and director on several TV series, including "Dragon Ball" series, "Case Closed," and "Lupin the Third."

As a comic book artist, he has 17 published works to date, including his debuted self-published series "Mr. Average," featured in "The Comics Journal"; and "Elfquest," which was published by both WARP Graphics and DC Comics. He's considered one of the top "Elfquest" artists from its over 30-year history.

In 2007, he wrote and illustrated a graphic novel about a reluctant punk rock, faerie princess named Goat. The book, called "We Shadows," was published by Tokyopop and was nominated by The American Library Association for Best Graphic Novel 2008. The book received glowing reviews in many trade magazines, including "Publishers Weekly," "Newtype," "Play" and "Anime Insider."

He has also appeared in many video games, such as the title role in "S'plosion Man," the psychos in "Borderlands" and Neptune in "Smite."

Recently, Strait has reprised his roles of Krillin in the theatrical release "Dragonball Z Resurrection F" and Toonami TOM 1 in the "Intruder 2" series for Cartoon Network. He was also cast in his current favorite roles of Koro Sensei in "Assassination Classroom" and Maple in "Show By Rock."

In 2015 Sonny returned to directing, starting with the anime series "Maria the Virgin Witch," "Mikagura School Suite" and the highly controversial "Prison School." He has also returned to "Elfquest" as a colorist for Dark Horse Comics. He also did a Ford commercial as Krillin.
