@dcmarvelanime Duke Golgo. It is actually awesome what a great casting that is. It makes me wonder if John had auditioned for Solid Snake - he would be an awesome Snake if Kojima had more investment in the dub from the beginning

@huzaifa_ahmed >if Kojima had more investment in the dub from the beginning

Not really. Kojima speaks broken English, so he isn't of much help. Besides, most MGS games as of now have the English versions as the original and the JP versions as the dub. It's been like that for awhile.

@AntiSabat666 I was thinking of the way that anime dubs (& most game dubs, most comparably the big-budget Final Fantasy dubs) seem to have actors with similar timbres to the original actors.

The original staff *do* go through the (directors' most available) auditions, usually to get the closest voice.

Heck, Tom Cruise complimented Toshiyuki Morikawa's dub-over when he was in Japan.

..MGS doesn't seem to follow this, & to me, that's somewhat of a let-down.

* That being said, to English-speaking fans, Hayter, Clarke, Hale, & that handful of VA's that seem to frequent Kris Zimmerman's projects...will *always* be MGS for them, & Kojima, I feel, should have been more open about their differences.

Really? Do you REALLY think the voice of Tidus in English (James Arnold Taylor) sounds ANYTHING like Masakazu Morita or that Ali Hillis is ANYTHING like Maaya Sakamoto? LOL.

>

No they don't. Only the nitpicky ones do that. Besides, most of the voices sound rather different even when the nitpicky ones check. The creator of the Tales of Xillia said that the dub voices were good, even though they sound nothing like the Japanese. In Code Geass, it was said that Taniguchi was involved in the dub to an extent and if you WATCH Geass, you'd know that JYB and Jun Fukuyama sound NOTHING alike. So if we go by the "creator should get involved" logic, that means that certain creators WANT a degree of difference.

>Heck, Tom Cruise complimented Toshiyuki Morikawa's dub-over when he was in Japan.

Indeed. I watched the video with Morikawa talking about voice acting. So?

>That being said, to English-speaking fans, Hayter, Clarke, Hale, & that handful of VA's that seem to frequent Kris Zimmerman's projects...will *always* be MGS for them, & Kojima, I feel, should have been more open about their differences.

I like both, to be honest BECAUSE of their differences. Yes, David Hayter sounds weird, but it's still memorable. Why should I care about the opinion of a guy whose English is broken at best? Just saying.

Happy 47th Birthday. Sadly I wasn't able to meet him at Supanova this year, but I thank him for his work in Futurama and other such from my Childhood. Hope Futurama will eventually make another comeback, even to have a Possible Theatrical Film sometime.

Happy Birthday John DiMaggio!

I love this guy, he's easily in my top five favourite VA's of all time. I think he brings so much humour and charm to so many of his roles. Bender from Futurama is easily his greatest role of all time, I mean the character himself is just hilarious but honestly without John I don't think Bender wouldn't have been as funny. I remember hearing during the audition process for the show, the creators didn't really have a voice in mind for Bender so many VA's had different interpretations for how Bender should sound, most did typical robot voices and Billy West attempted a gruff construction worker voice but John he gave Bender this loud, crass and drunken sound to his voice that just fits to a freaking tee! His other voices on Futurama were great too including Elzar, Mr. Panucci, Fry's Dad, Joey Mousepad, Igner, URL (aww yeah!), Flexo, Hermaphrobot, Sal, Barbados Slim and Robot Santa Claus.

Of course with that said, I have also loved John's many other OUTRAGEOUS roles over the years including Dr. Drakken, Jake the Dog, Fu Dog, Rico, Schnitzel, Scotsman, Joker, Aquaman, Faceless Hunter, Toyman, Vigilante, Brother Blood, Killer Croc, King Shark, Sampson, Sphinx, Sandman, Hammerhead, Rhino, Eitri, Juggernaut, Galactus, Leadfoot, Crosshairs, Groundpounder, Farnum, Vogel, Rath, Armordrillo, Four Arms, Bullfrag, Zombozo, Manly Dan, Love God, Harry Claymore, Bobo HaHa, Hannibal McFist, Motor Ed, Pizza Face, Hak Foo, Actor Iroh, Actor Toph, Sergei Petkov, General Grievous, Beard Papa and Duke Golgo.

Seriously he is awesome, the only thing that would make him even more awesome is if he ever gets to voice Wheeljack someday in either a Transformers series, movie or game, because seriously that would be perfect casting.

Happy birthday, John DiMaggio!

I just finished watching season 2 of Adventure Time and I LOVE your work as Jake The Dog, your performance as Bender is also hilarious and classic as well and you were great as General Grievous and Gilgamesh as well. But my favourite performance of yours HAS to be Aquaman, you made that character so entertaining!

Hope your birthday is OUTRAGEOUS!

I used to think only Clancy Brown should touch Ganon/Ganondorf, but after listening to John voice Galactus, I honestly think he could pull Ganondorf off.

said at 11:02 AM on Fri Apr 25 2014
@Dark Kuja I saw him listed as Galactus and thought: "Galactus? Really?" I feel like an idiot because I thought the same when he voiced Joker, and like the Joker, John blew me away. I too agree that he could make an awesome Ganondorf, he'd probably be my fifth choice for the role though.

Gee, I knew DiMaggio voiced a variety, but my knowledge of that scope was only limited to his cartoon roles. Didn't anticipate knowing that he voiced Kimahri AND Wakka. And then discovering that the same man VA'ed Marcus Fenix. Man, what range...

The scenes between Bender and Elzar in the Futurama episode 'Bender Gets Made' are essentially John DiMaggio talking to himself (though he doesn't nearly do that as much as Billy does)
