They both sound pretty similar, but the fact that Roger has more lines as Deidara (and hence being able to portray the character way more than Quinton) seals the deal for me.

Roger Craig Smith, by far, he sounds way more natural and less put on with his delivery & acting.

Quinton Flynn sounds sinister and all, but he sounds like he's putting on an evil tone and it's not too natural.

Quinton was okay but the lack of lines really did not help him

RCS all the way on this one, he sounds smooth and really regal, while Quinton Flynn sounds like an evil Iruka to me here.
Silly Sally

They're both so perfect, I can't decide between them. Quinton Flynn doing his Reno/Axel voice is a perfect fit for Deidara, but Roger Craig Smith is a bitter smoother and captures the "artist" aspect of his character better. Yeah, it's a tie, though Smith edges out a little.

I think they both did a good job. It's weird how comparing them they sound a bit different but when I don't think about it, they sound the same.

lol Also cuz Roger voices Sonic and Quinton voices Silver. =P

Both Quinton and Roger do a fantastic job, though I think I prefer Roger just a little more as I think his voice seems to fit Deidara's personality better.

Quinton Flynn was good with what little he had, especially since there wasn't a clear visual of Deidara at that point, but if he still used that voice when the character was revealed in-full, I wouldn't find it anywhere near as fitting. There's also too much of a resemblance to Iruka.

While I don't think that Roger's trying to be "sexual" was necessary, he still fits Deidara's personality and appearance better. Thus, he gets my vote.

@pokemastanumba1 "sexual"???? I have no clue what you're talking about. lol

But I agree on everything else.

@Axx That's his style and personality based on his mannerisms; he's obviously meant to represent the stereotypical flamboyant artist, like Launch Octopus.

lol actually yes in this case it did mean the ENGLISH dub producers, voice directors, etc

my bad :D

I believe the Japanese TPTB only get involved with English casting when it comes to main characters

e.g. Oda (creator of One Piece) approved of Funimation's English dub cast

Maile Flannigan also had a meeting with some Japanese executives when she got the part of Naruto.

TPTB = the powers that be (such as directors, producers or executives)
