3rd Annual BTVA Anime Awards

Voice Compare » X-Men » Gambit

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Gambit with sound clips and images.
Gambit (real name Remy LeBeau) is a thief from New Orleans and a member of the X-Men. He specializes in fighting with a staff and card throwing. He and Rogue are in a relationship.

Gambit was voiced by Chris Potter for the first few seasons of the 90's X-Men cartoon. Tony Daniels took over for the last season, and also voiced him for several fighting games. Since then, Gambit's voice actors have been more consistent, but he nonetheless has a lot.

Special thanks to Foxwolf for the X-Men: Next Dimension clip.

Rick sounds like he's saying Rogue is cookin' up corn porn. Didn't know Gambit was that kinky.

I always will be for Chris Potter, he did Gambit splendidly to me. The others were pretty descent.

Rick is a pretty decent Gambit really. I wouldn't mind hearing him again.

Chris Potter is my favorite. I don't like Phil's voice for him that much. Everyone else is alright, but don't know if they really stand out to me.

I'd like to hear Troy Baker as Gambit. I know he's overused in fan casts, but he's very talented and I could easily hear him play a charming, yet sometimes slimy guy like Gambit. I assume he could do the accent.

Rick reminds me of a young Jim CUmmings, someone who I thought could make a good Gambit but would sound too old.
That said, I thought Phil sounded more charming which is funny since that version was probably the most evil of his appearances so far

I find it funny that Chris Edgerly did better than the actor from the actual movie
said at 6:38 PM on Mon Nov 25 2013
I can safely say every VA but Rick Pasqualone does a great job here. Michael Dunn is under rated, Marvel:Ultimate Alliance 2 VA's usually get shafted with short, low quality clips. I can't decide between him, Chris Potter, and Alessandro Juliani.

Chris Potter & Tony Daniels are by far the best Gambit's in my opinion. :)

Giving it to Phil, and Alesandro as a close second. When I think Gambit, I think suave over anything else, and these two have in spades. Not to knock rasp and gruff in a Gambit voice, those work too, I just personal prefer they're takes on the character.
said at 12:50 AM on Wed Nov 13 2013
I go more so by accent. Phil just doesn't Cajun to me...he almost sounds like he's from a Caribbean island but his accent is thinning. Which is why I choose Chris & Tony. :)
said at 7:49 PM on Sun Sep 15 2013
I voted for Tony. Phil, Alessandro, & Chris P did well, too. If Scott could have had a longer role, I could judge him better. Not sure what too say about Chris E. I have no clue what Michael said. Could anyone answer me back on that one? Rick did okay. Just OK.

Phil LaMarr is BEAST!! This is one of my favorite roles from him. When I first heard it, I didn't even know it was him! Its so natural with so much charisma and personality. Next would probably be the original X-Men TAS VAs.

They all do good work but I gotta go with Chris Potter.

Definitely Chris Potter. On another note, who else thinks Jeff Bennett would make an awesome Gambit??
said at 12:16 PM on Sun Dec 30 2012

@JaredTaylor94 Jeff Bennett would probably do a very good job as Gambit, as would Nolan North.
said at 1:16 AM on Thu Jan 10 2013
@BurtLancaster1913 Never thought of Nolan North! It would most likely be better than his Cyclops.
said at 7:32 AM on Mon Jan 28 2013
@JaredTaylor94 If he went into his higher register, maybe.

@JaredTaylor94 I love Jeff Bennet's work but I have a hard time seeing him voicing Gambit

@HyperVoiceActing On second thought, I'm not hearing either. All I keep imagining is Shocker lol
said at 5:30 AM on Wed Sep 18 2013
@JaredTaylor94 - IF I were to cast Jeff as an X-Men character, it's probably be Pyro or Toad
said at 9:28 PM on Mon Oct 1 2012
Chris Potter or Tony Daniels, defiantly .
said at 10:22 PM on Mon Sep 17 2012
I voted for Alessandro Juliani. Even though they deaged the character I still think his is the best.

Phil LaMarr's awesome!!!
said at 4:52 AM on Fri May 11 2012
Wow! I thought this one would be pretty one-sided for me, but everybody sounded really good! The only one that feels really out of place is Alessandro Juliani. I think his voice is too high, plus the accent is off by quite a bit in comparison to the other actors.

Overall, I'd have to say Chris Potter is my #1 choice, followed by Tony Daniels second and Phil LaMarr third. Chris Edgerly gets an honorable mention as well.

Yes Chris Potter the original and best Gambit is winning.

@pete LOLOL 90s fanboys and their nostalgia clouding their vision and making them biased. [/irony] :-P
said at 5:56 AM on Tue Jan 29 2013

No offense, but yeah, I have to echo what TheVengeanceKnight said. I've noticed that you the poll results go your way (like prefering the 90s Marvel shows), you don't accuse them of being biased; but when they don't (such as gonig with the modren shows), you do.
said at 6:08 AM on Tue Jan 29 2013
@Anicomicgeek Heh, I wasn't really accusing him of anything, I was just making a joke. :-P But you do make some good points.
said at 7:17 AM on Tue Jan 29 2013

I meant to say "I've noticed that when the poll results go your way."
said at 7:12 PM on Tue Jan 29 2013
@Anicomicgeek That's like someone who prefers Spectacular saying Spectacular fans are biasing.
said at 7:13 PM on Tue Jan 29 2013
@TheVengeanceKnight See above statement.
said at 1:02 AM on Wed Jan 30 2013

No, it's not. You criticized the results of the Spider-Man polls results, claiming it's biasing towards Spectacular, yet both here and on the Cyclops poll, you cheered when the voices from the 90s cartoon are in the lead, voices you stated a preference for.
said at 1:27 AM on Wed Jan 30 2013
@pete See above statement. :-P

You also cheered during the brief time when Linda Gray was leading in the Aunt May poll before Deborah Strange regained it.

You know, I could say the same thing about you.

Case in point: let's look at the other polls when someone says something bad about a popular show like SSM. The Doc Ock poll, for instance. Pete says he doesn't like Peter MacNicol, then you two come in to defend it.

Here, Pete likes Chris Potter best, so now he's a '90s fanboy clouded by nostalgia. Or on the Venom poll, TheVengeanceKnight claims to have no clue why Ben Diskin isn't winning. How is that any less biased or fanboyish than Pete being glad that his favourite has the most votes?

Sorry, nothing against you two personally, but I needed to get this off my chest. I'm tired of how on all the superhero voice compares, people can't have different opinions without getting called out on it. Why can't we all be friends?
said at 3:38 PM on Wed Jan 30 2013
@Anicomicgeek In addition to what NCZ said if I like voice what's the point of attacking other people who do? It is the same thing indeed.

My favorite is Chris Potter because he puts the most cajun into it. Gambit is from Louisiana after all. I think Tony Daniels is great as well. After those two I like Phil LaMarr and Chris Edgerly. I'm sorry to say this, but I hate Alessandro Juliani's Gambit. The accent doesn't sound consistent with the character and I personally just don't like it. Though I did like him in Battlestar!
said at 8:59 AM on Thu Jan 12 2012
I'm going with Tony Daniels. I like how he uses a french accent for Gambit. My other faves are Chris Potter, Phil LaMarr and Alessandro Juliani.

What about the dude that did the voice of Gambit in the last season of X-men animated series ? his voice was totally different than chris potter's through out the rest of the season. my vote still goes to Chris potter though.

Juliani's voice for Gambit was very hot! (To me. Others may not feel that way.) He did a great job with it, but something in particular about it is just total ear candy for me. So deep and velvety, so rich. *drools* What, I'm a girl! :)

Chris Potter rocks too, but doesn't stir the deep recesses of my insides (Oh what??) like Juliani as Gambit can. I was surprised that he doesn't really sound like that in his live-action roles.
(Except sometimes when the character he is playing is having a serious moment. Love him in Smallville!)

Now the others just range from good to not-so-good or even awful, depending. I've spent too much time yammering, but Edgerly struck me as very 'Gambit' sounding.
said at 2:20 AM on Mon Mar 28 2011
Juliani gets my vote, as the accent doesn't feel laid on, and feels more subtle. There's a clarity to his voice that I always felt Alessandro captured that the others never did for me. Though Potter was alright.
said at 2:44 AM on Sun Mar 6 2011
Phil LaMarr? Are you kidding me???? Phil Lamarr is the worst. He sounds more Jamaican than Southern. Chris Potter is number 1.
