Happy Birthday Matt Hill. He's one of my favorite Ocean voice cast members mainly for getting to voice in something with the late John Hurt. He should consider himself lucky for that and it's funny that both of their birthdays are not too far apart. My favorite roles of Matt Hill's are Ed, Soarin, and Todd (Polly Pocket franchise)

I love how the voice for Ed and Todd in the Polly Pocket franchise was in a movie with John Hurt (my all time favorite actor) called "A Monkey's Tale". I've yet to see it but I might check it out because I'm a fan of both John Hurt and the Ocean voice cast (and the same movie also had a few more Ocean voice cast as I saw with the credits, along with big name British actors). I think that there should be another movie with John Hurt and the Ocean voice cast and maybe Matt Hill could be in it too.

My top 10 favourite roles from him are:

1.) Ed (Ed, Edd N' Eddy)
2.) Bankotsu (InuYasha)
3.) Kira Yamato (Gundam SEED)
4.) Soarin (My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic)
5.) Korey Kelly (Being Ian)
6.) Kero (Cardcaptors Sakura)
7.) Havok/Alex Summers (X-Men Evolution)
8.) Artha Penn (Dragon Booster)
9.) Bass (Megaman NT Warrior)
10.) Ton-Ton (Dinotrux)

Yeah still not really a fan of his roles in the Transformers franchise. :/ Shame really, since he seemed to really enjoy being a part of the franchise.

I actually saw him in an episode of The X-Files recently (the episode also featured Peter Kelamis as well. That's right, Ed and Rolf in the same episode!!! However, I couldn't find Peter anywhere). Given I'm so used to his more comedic roles, he REALLY surprised me there!!!

Happy Birthday Matt Hill! The Definitive Canadian Surfer Dude Voice.

Truth be told for a while I wasn't the biggest fan of his work especially after hearing him as Ironhide and Carlos. However after I found out he was liked voicing in Transformers. My opinion of him turned around. I still feel bad that he voiced some of the worse characters in the franchise. He deserves another major Transformers role, one that's actually good.

Once I found out he did Ed, my mind was blown! I haven't seen Ed, Edd n Eddy in years and I do plan on giving it a rewatch sometime later this year but his performance as Ed was easily the best performance and character on the show. Also my favourite role of his too.

I also like his voice as Soarin, Bankotsu, Havok, Korey and Kero. I didn't really like Gundam Seed much but I have to respect Matt as Kira Yamato as well.
said at 11:09 AM on Tue Jan 19 2016
After re-watching Gundam SEED last year, I have to say it's a bit better than I remembered it being but at the same time I still wasn't that particularly fond of Kira.

Matt's performance as Kira however was excellent. He honestly does a better job at emoting (crying) than Soichiro Hoshi ever could, who just sounds like he's doing a Spongebob Squarepants impression.

I mean it took balls for what Matt did with his performance, seriously he told James Corrigall to kick him there so he could cry. Seriously Matt deserves some massive respect.

His Bankotsu was friggin epic too. It was awesome to hear him play a really likeable and cool villain like him. He needs to voice more villains.

Happy Birthday Matt Hill!

After interviewing Matt Hill I can safely say, this man is the living incarnation of Michelangelo (even though ironically he played Raphael)
said at 6:21 AM on Mon Jan 19 2015
@skeletonking1234 This still baffles me to this date why he got cast as Raphael when he's clearly Michelangelo material?

I mean Kirby Morrow should have been Leonardo and Michael Dobson would have worked better as Raphael.

The Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation casting was so off it's not even funny.

I feel bad for Matt sometimes. He's been cast in some great properties, but their worst incarnations. Gundam Seed Destiny, Transformers Energon, Captain N, GI Joe Extreme, The Next Mutation, etc. He deserves a lot better than that.

Just look at those roles! I've never seen any other voice actor who seems to get roles at complete random like that.

Captain N, Ironhide, Ed, Rapheal, Tenderheart Bear, Bass, Soarin, and Metalhead.

Does this guy just show up at auditions and draw a name from a hat? What's going on? Ugh, I'm so confused, now...
