Oh boy, this one’s really obscure.

So, here’s the thing: Jonathan Adams, who is the voice of Xuen the White Tiger Celestial, also played Dr. Goodman on season 1 of Bones.  His character on Bones is a commanding presence, not unlike Xuen, and his boldly-voiced pronouncements are not that far off from the kinds of things Xuen says.  I recently rewatched season 1 and I couldn’t stop myself from yelling “VICTORY!” in my best Xuen voice almost every time Dr. Goodman had a line.


  1. Hah! Love it!

  2. Oh, nifty. It reminds me of how I did a happy-dance when I noticed that the voice of Lorewalker Cho (Jim Cummings) is also the dude who has done a massive number of voices for Disney cartoons, which I grew up watching. I’ve seriously gotta IMDB more of Blizzard’s voice-cast and see who else is one of those, “oh, wow!” moments. 🙂

    • It’s fun to come across things like that. Sometimes it’s a little disorienting, other times its just awesome.

    • I, on the other hand, expect him to tell us something about his miniature giant space hamster. (For those who do not know, Jim Cummings also voiced Minsk in Baldur’s Gate series)
