About Gray G. Haddock

Gray is the Head of Rooster Teeth Animation, co-director on the international anime hit RWBY, a writer on Camp Camp, and creator of the highly anticipated gen:LOCK. Gray voices RWBY’s Torchwick, Red vs Blue’s Locus, DCUO’s Green Lantern Hal Jordan, and has also voiced dozens of anime characters including Rurouni Kenshin’s Sanosuke. He had hoped that giving voices to these characters would quiet the voices in his head. But alas… Who said that? Shut up!
