FMA 2 Dub Cast Announced (Sorta)

Body: 

So, the cast for Funimation's Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood dub has been revealed. Or, at least, some of it. Here's my commentary on it:

Vic Mignogna as Edward Elric

Comment: I'm not surprised, but I'm not happy. Vic will continue to gain popularity based on a mediocre effort that pales in comparison to the Japanese voice. Well, I can at least hope he's better this time around, because last time it he was just lousy.

Maxey Whitehead as Alphonse Elric

Comment: They replaced the best performer in the first dub, Aaron Dismuke (ostensibly because he went through puberty, and thus his voice changed), with a relative newcomer. This is particularly upsetting, since I feel that even now, Dismuke will still be capable of handling Alphonse, who is a little older-seeming and wiser in the new series, anyway. But, I'll give Whitehead a chance.
