I've watched some clips of the Gintama dub, and he is excellent as Gintoki.

Happy Birthday Michael Daingerfield Hall!

My top 10 favourite roles of his are:

1.) Gintoki Sakata (Gintama)
2.) Sesshomaru (InuYasha: The Final Act)
3.) Wheeljack (Transformers: Armada)
4.) Inferno (Transformers: Energon)
5.) Johann Trinity (Gundam 00)
6.) Braeburn (My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic)
7.) Superman (Krypto The Superdog)
8.) Han Solo (Lego Star Wars)
9.) Quickmix (Transformers: Cybertron)
10.) Unicorn (Iron Man: Armoured Adventures)

I haven't watched much of Gintama but seriously Michael Daingerfield Hall in this role may in fact be one of the best anime dub lead castings in quite some time. Seriously he's like a perfect voice match to Tomokazu Sugita, having a voice quite fittingly deep but importantly sounds hilarious, nails the comedy and sounds very cool and badass. All round a perfect casting choice for the main character in a series that was once considered undubbable. I'm hoping Crunchyroll will eventually give the rest of the series to Ocean so they can dub the whole thing if possible. This is a definite BTVA anime awards contender. I'll have to really get into Gintama in the near future, I've liked what I've seen thus far.

He's actually a very good voice match for David Kaye. It's also worth noting that he shares 3 roles with him as well.

@Shaun Ince whats funny is that techincally he potrayed superman before kaye so you can propably say kaye was trying to voice match him

@Abdullab I dunno. The fact that they both voiced Superman seems more like coincidence to me. The other two characters he replaced David Kaye is voice matching.

@Shaun Ince relax i meant it as a funny joke otherwise :) dangerfeild is his voice double on canadian projects that had kaye but on the bright side i dont think they overuse michael as a voice double like mercer or tipton (both of whom are good in their own right)

Okay that is awesome, he's voicing Gintoki Sakata.

From what I've heard of his take, he sounds like a great English match for Tomokazu Sugita.

Fittingly deep, yet nails his comedic moments perfectly.

I suspect this will be a performance worth considering for the BTVA anime dub awards next year.

He nailed Gintoki. Exactly like how I imagined him sounding. It will be his star-making role, for sure.

@BioZero216 That's if the dub gets popular enough. Also Gintama has gone through various anime adaptions over the years.

Happy Birthday Michael Daingerfield Hall!

Man he does a terrific job replacing and sounding so much like David Kaye (my favourite VA ever) in some of his roles once he moved to LA. His Sesshomaru while a little bit lighter than I would have preferred was pretty awesome, especially since the character went through a good amount of character development during The Final Act, though I found it funnier that his Johann Trinity from Gundam 00 sounded way more like David Kaye than his Sesshomaru.

I also really loved his work in The Transformers franchise too, he's sort of like to the Unicron Trilogy that Reno Wilson is to the Michael Bay movies, getting to play three different roles in each instalment playing Wheeljack, Inferno and Quickmix. I thought he really shined as Inferno in Energon being one of the few major stand outs in that travesty of a dub.

I also liked him as Keo's Dad, Superman, Unicorn and Braeburn too.

I also really like his performance as Han Solo in the Lego Star Wars series. He does a great job emulating Harrison Ford while still making Han his very own.

It's also great he got to reprise Braeburn once again this past season of MLP FiM.

Happy Birthday Michael Daingerfield Hall!

Funny how he's voiced a supervillain named Unicorn and yet he hasn't voiced a unicorn in MLP (yet).
