Belated Happy Birthday Darren Dunstan!

He was pretty awesome as Roget in Arc-V IMO. Really made him a great "love to hate" villain I'd say, and I liked his voice direction for the show in general admittedly.

What happened to him? It’s been a while since I’ve heard his voice.

@Jared DiCarlo Well... He's been doing the voice direction for Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V (and it's some very good work IMO) and he was a character called "Roget" in the show not too long ago. But aside from that, I'm not particularly sure.

@nikipotamus No worries friend. But yes, it's easily the best of the Yu-Gi-Oh! Spin-Off dubs IMO.

@HylianBelmont If I'm not mistaken, I think I read somewhere that he's also doing the voice direction for that Welcome to the Wayne show on Nickelodeon. Is that show even still running?

@Jared DiCarlo From what I can read on internet, apparently so.

@HylianBelmont Are you sure? I hardly even watch Nick anymore, but I haven’t seen any commercials for it.

Happy Birthday Darren Dunstan!

Definitely one of the more underrated and underappreciated 4Kids VA's.

I loved his performance as Maximillion Pegasus in Yu-Gi-Oh! Great campy and flamboyant villain performance, it's one of the major highlights of the dub.

I also liked his performance as Splinter and his many roles on Pokemon.

Happy Birthday, Darren Dunstan!

My favorite role from him is Pegasus, personally: I always found his performance very close to the Japanese seiyu's and the slight flamboyance in sillier moments with his take reminded me a lot of Eric Stuart's James performance (which I've found people often confuse the two VAs for each other on YouTube due to the vocal similarities between their renditions of the respective characters).

My second favorite was actually Mr. Sukizo: for a character who was a man of few words, he really made the character entertaining with his wise, yet goofy, delivery and tone. Someone else said it before, but I thought his performance was quite "remarkable" in the part.

I also thought he did a pretty good job as Ash's Swellow during 4Kids' run with Pokemon AG, too.

Happy Birthday Darren Dunstan!

My favourite role of his is a tie between Pegasus and Splinter. His Pegasus was an AMAZING villiain performance IMO, he portrayed his sympathetic side, his serious side, and his comedic side PERFECTLY. His Splinter was first version of the character I ever saw, and he did a very great job playing the "wise and kind" master character that Spliter is IMO.

Another favourite is Adrian Gecko from GX. He made him sound very likeable and entertaining IMO! (also helps that he got some of the funniest dialogue in that show to work with) and like with Pegasus. Portrayed his serious side pretty nicely as well.

I also loved his performances as Andre, Mr. Suzkio, Mr. Tanaka, and Zander!

I think i may found a perfect match for voicing dark, aloof, series, cockier, more arrogant, intelligent, and especially independent black hedgehog is all i could think of.

Yes i am referring to Shadow The Hedgehog.

That guy should do it really well.

@SteelEthlan Discarding the choice for him to voice shadow as i chosen 6 of these lesser known voice actors that may have the potential young sounding, dark, suave-like, intimidating, etc.

I think that Darren Dunstan would've been the guy to voice James in future pokemon series instead of Jimmy Zoppi who also voiced meowth, as Tom Wayland who apparently, tried to replicate like the old times that 4Kids (Now called 4K Media Inc.) director did that i can't name here did, but as the result goes it's outright ballsy as i heard.
