Happy Birthday, Joel McDonald!

I like him as a VA, but I like him a lot more as an ADR Director.

Happy Birthday, Joel McDonald! Frankly he's a very good VA and also a great ADR director to match. My favorite McDonald performances consist of Jacuzzi Splot, Brief, Meow, Yuga Aoyama, Kilik Rung, Toshimitsu Kubo, Mutsumi Saburo, Poland, Disturbed, and Takumi Fujiwara.

He's going to play Dilandau in Funimation's redub of ESCAFLOWNE. A rather curious choice, but it'll be interesting to see how this will pay off.

Happy Birthday Joel McDonald!

A really solid VA but an even better and damn great ADR director.

My favourite role of his is without a doubt Meow from Space Dandy. He was made for that role.

I also loved his performances as Jacuzzi Splot, Minato Sahashi, Kilik Rung, Zeref, Toshimitsu Kubo, Mikage, Gilbert and Urey Rockbell.

As a ADR director, he did a fantastic job with the dubs of Space Dandy, Spice & Wolf, Robotic;Notes and Haganai NEXT.

He was hilarious as the flamboyant Yuga Aoyama in My Hero Academia.

and while I have not seen the new dub for Escaflowne yet I have heard that he did a very great job as Dilandau. I'll have to check it out at some point soon if only to hear his performance.

also congratulations Joel McDonald on becoming a dad this year.

Happy Birthday Joel McDonald!

I know many of us should have done this a long time ago, but, Happy Birthday, Joel. Excellent job as Zeref and Chronos. Yes, that's how they spell it in the game.

Joel has turned into a damn good ADR Director. I was quite impressed with the english dubs of Control and Freezing. I would say he is indeed one of Funimation's most competent voice directors right up there with Mike Mcfarland, Colleen Clinkenbeard and Tyler Walker who I find to be the most accomplished ADR directors currently working at Funimation.

@IAMTHEVASTUNIVERSE And Jerry Jewell, as he too is a ADR Director and a great one.
