You know something ironic is that both he and Chris Sabat are both ex smokers and prominent voices for Picollo

Happy Birthday Scott McNeil!

What hasn't already been said about him already? He is without a doubt the greatest voice actor in all of Canada. The amount of characters, performances and voices he's done over the past twenty years is nothing short of incredible.

If there was one show to truly showed off his range it was in Beast Wars where he was the voice of Rattrap, Dinobot, Waspinator and Silverbolt. 4 very unique characters and memorable voices as well as all being major character in the series. Most of the other VA's in the show at best did at least one major role and a minor incidental voice here and there considering how limited the cast was but Scott was doing Four Major Roles! I mean that's incredible. I'm not sure which of his character is my favourite since they're all good but his performance as Dinobot in the episode Code of Hero is some of the best voice acting I've ever heard.

Of course he's done a few more great Transformers characters too including Jetfire, Omega Supreme, Strongarm, Backstop and Snarl during the Unicron Trilogy.

Luckily he's done so much more outside of Transformers. His work in cartoons and anime is just as phenomenal. My favourite non-Transformer role of his would be Ali Al-Saachez in Gundam 00. Oh man this is one of the best villains in the entire Gundam franchise, a warmongering psychopath terrorist and mercenary who basically gets under everyone skins and has no real sense of honour or morality. Scott just rocked this role, it's easily one of his best performances and I can tell he was having fun playing Ali. He was also excellent as Duo Maxwell in Gundam Wing easily giving the best performance from the whole dub as I found he was the only one in (a otherwise really solid voice cast) who never once sounded stiff or awkward due to the direction, it probably helps Duo is easily the most fun and likeable character in the whole show too.

I also love his many other performances too including Piccolo, Jeice, Majin Buu, Koga, Hohenheim, Luo Lang, Wolverine, Annihilus, Ace the Bat-Hound, Dr. Wily, ShadeMan.EXE, Lord Raptor, Verrocchio, Daryl Dodge, Flam, Rover, Chief Thunder Hooves, Cobra Commander, Senor Hasbeena, Tahu, Jajuka, and even Jesus Christ himself.

It's also cool when he appears in live-action like when he made a small appearance on The Flash earlier this year, plus it's awesome that he's so far the only Vancouver VA who sometimes voices at FUNimation speaking of which just recently about a month ago or so he was spotted at the FUNimation studios which has me thinking he's going to be voicing in more dubs soon which has me very much looking forward to it.

also I cannot wait for whenever the Ocean dub of DBZ Kai if that ever does comes out, no doubt he will finally knock Piccolo right out of the park.

I believe the credits for Leage of Legends is missing some information. He voices Hecarim, Maokai, new Sion and the Final Boss Veigar skin. Just want to make sure he had credit for Sion cause I love that one so much.

After reading all those facts ab out him, how he helped a collapsed anime fan, and how he fully respects subs, I have a lot of respect for this man. He's not only an amazing actor, but a very funny man and very compassionate and down-to-earth person. God bless you, Mr. McNeil.

He was in the newest episode of The Flash, playing a crook named, Julius. It was a brief role, but cool to see him.
said at 7:00 AM on Wed Feb 4 2015
@Polyester Funk I was shocked to see him on The Flash.

He was missing his trademark cowboy hat so at first I wasn't 100% sure if it was him, also that moment when you realized he stabbed The Flash's dad.

Still that was cool. I love it when they film shows or movies in Vancouver. I love seeing voice actors onscreen.

@Autovolt I had that moment of "I think that's Scott McNeil. No probably not." And then he spoke and "Yep, that's him."

Yeah, it is cool to see voice actors on screen.

I can't believe this slipped my mind.

Congrats on having over 400 roles Scott McNeil!

You deserve having far more than that. Like I'm surprised that in this decade he hasn't had as much work as of late sure he gets to guest star on MLP every now and then but still.

Hey Scott, it was a great honor meeting you at Botcon 2010, you're an awesome guy. I was wondering if you'd be interested in doing an audition for a project my group is doing, it's for Tyranitron and I think your Demon king voice (especially the tone when he's singing) from A Chinese Ghost Story might fit him. I've already put in a similar request in David Warner but I'm not sure if he, or you for that matter, read these comments. Either way here's a link to the audition page on the site.

Happy birthday, Scott! Man, he's been in so many things. A lot of cool characters like: Dinobot, Rattrap, Waspinator, Silverbolt, Piccolo, Jeice, Wolverine, Beast Man, Ram Man, Mer-Man, Kobra Khan, Clawful, Calix(though, he was very brief), Duo Maxwell, Destro and his Cobra Commander sounds just like Chris Latta. I'm sure I'm forgetting someone. He's got a heckuva resume.

Polyester Funk

@Polyester Funk I'm kinda surprised that he didn't voice Starscream in Beast Wars with that voice. Unless he was asked, but refused cuz it was too tough on him. Or there was some kind of legal reason why he couldn't. Since he sounded so much like Latta maybe it would have made people think it was him and he had been dead for some time.

Actually Brian Drummond took over the role in Cybertron oddly enough. (Despite the fact that Scott is actually Australian.) Though yes Scott McNeil is one of my fave VA's as well.
