The latest issue of Newtype (I think it that was the US anime magazine, it wasn't Animerica) had short interviews with the dub voice actors from "Full Metal Alchemist"; asking what their favourite episodes were, and the like. (It is interesting to note that a lot of the actors listed eps 13 and 25 as a favourite...)

Of course, being an Al fangirl, I was interested to hear what his VA had to say... ;)P And I was pleasantly surprised to see that one of his fave scenes was when Al hid the kitty in his armour. XD

He also had an amusing anecdote about the bad habit he developed during dubbing, of leaning his stool back during recording... Naturally, this caused him to fall over one time, causing the recording of the resulting crash, his reaction, and the voice director asking if he was all right. (Just the thought of an outtake of Al's voice swearing his head off, strikes me as too funny!)

The other VAs' comments were interesting, as well; if anyone wants me to list any specific ones, let me know. (Although... Methinks Scar's VA enjoys the "head-asplody" thing *way* too much. 0_o;)

EDIT: BTW, interesting side note... The person who does Havoc's voice is the voice director of the show!

Hmmm... Perhaps I'll end up buying this magazine after all (I'm remembering all this stuff off the top of my head); the FMA interviews were the only things I really was interested in in this issue, but I guess I could always use it for drawing reference... ;)P

Ooo! Ooo! Tell me about Scar's and maybe Roy's?

Well, like I mentioned earlier about Scar, it went something like this:

Interviewer: So what's your favourite part about playing Scar?
Scar's VA: The way he blows up people's heads.
Interviewer: Okay... What else do you like about him?
Scar's VA: Hmmm... You know, I *really* like the blowing up heads part.
Interviewer: ...

He was probably joking, but that was still somewhat... Disturbing. 0_o;

One of the favourite eps of Roy's VA is Full Metal vs. Flame, naturally... And apparently, he got a real kick out of doing the "I love dogs!" line; it seems his friends watching the show (as well as the dubbers) loved his delivery of the line. ;)P
