1. James Carter Cathcart (A)- THE voice of Weevil, even Martin Billany can't catch up to this guy's intriguing delivery. I could listen to the clip all day.

2. Brian Zimmerman (C-)- It's as if Cutman from the Mega Man cartoon show turned into a creep. Seriously, his voice should be arrested for indecent exposure.

1. Billy Bob Thompson(not featured here, he's the current voice of Weevil in Duel Links)
He does a good impression of Cathcart, but he is waaayyyy less annoying and still manages to sound very smug.

2. James Carter Cathcart
It fits the character's smug and sneaky personality, but I find the performance rather annoying sometimes. Also, I can't be the only one who thinks that his current voice for Meowth sounds like Weevil with a Brooklyn accent right?

3. Brian Zimmerman
Somehow he managed to make Weevil more annoying with his take. He sounds a lot more nasally than Cathcart/Thompson and somehow he ends up sounding like a bad Stitch (from Lilo and Stitch) impression.

If he gets added to the poll, I'll be changing my vote to Billy Bob Thompson because I heard clips of his take, and it's way less grating than JCC's take is for me, too- Weevil's dub voice is one of the few that actually bothered me in the old 4Kids dub (not that I like the choice Odex's dub made here, either).

On another note, Mako Tsunami (Ryota Kajiki) got a new dub voice in the Duel Links/Terminal game since Andrew Rannells moved on to make his career in live acting/theater, and Daniel J. Edwards does the role now. In that case, however, I prefer Andrew's take, but just an interesting situation.

I've never really cared for either of Weevil's English voices, to be honest, but James at least sounds a lot more villainous and sneaky, which fits more with what Weevil is.

Brian sounds like an impression of a vampire or something, which is okay enough for a villain I suppose, but I never really imagined Weevil sounding like that at all.

James's voice was very fitting for Weevil. It's probably one of my favourite performances from him.

Brian is fairly decent as well but I don't think he was quite as fitting as James Carter Cathcart was.

James: He has proven himself to be one of the lesser actors within 4Kids' roster, but I'll give him credit where it's due.

Brian sounds like a less enthusiastic version of James. No way I could get behind that.

Neither one of them fit this character. However, I will side with Cathcart just because he sounds smug, deceiving and very much like a jerk.

James Carter Cathcart as grating as his voice could get for Weevil....it was perfect for the character in every way.

Brian Zimmerman's Peter Lorre esque voice doesn't quite fit this annoying bug nerd well.

Cathcart gets my vote.

James Cathcart- Sounds like a deceiving, smug jerk, which matches the character well.

Brian Zimmerman- Creepy, but not quite in a way that matches the character.

I actually like his Japanese voice best, but I think James Carter Cathcart does a really great job as well. I'm not that crazy about Brian's take, but part of that may be the voice direction. I think a lot of the voices in the Odex dub wouldn't been so bad if they actually proper voice direction.

Ah, Weevil Underwood. The only character which James Carter Cathcart actually does well as to me(His Meowth is too scratchy, his James is too whiny and both are off in pitch). Why? Because Weevil is the kind of character you'd imagine having a high-pitched and scratchy voice, and that's just what Jimmy "Alan Smithee" Zoppi delivers. Brian Zimmerman is basically like a higher-pitched Ren Hoek to me.

#1: James C. Cathcart.
#2: Brain Zimmerman.

James sounds like a cross between Imperfect Cell and Cobra Commander. It's just hysterical.

Brian sounds like a bad Peter Lorre impression. Also very amusing.

I'm going with James. His voice is more fitting.

Both are terribly annoying, I get what they're going for but it overshot the mark, this is a rare case I'll take Odex

I'd go with Jimmy since he doesn't have enough credibility.

James Carter Cathcart (aka Jimmy Zoppi) really got the "I'm an a*****" feeling of Weevil down really well. He really got the creepy nerdy feeling of how Weevil (aka Insector Haga) is a real jerk.

Brian Zimmerman sounds like Igor. I don't like his voice that much for Weevil, mainly because he's a tad too creepy in the role.

@OldSchoolFTW I disagree. Weevil's supposed to be a creepy, slimy bug nerd, and Brian's voice fits that image. I don't hate Zoppi's take, but it annoys me 'cause it could have been so much better. In the original dub of the moment where the clip comes from, Weevil talks about how he couldn't think of any way to beat the Exodia cards..."until just this moment." When he delivers that line, he sounds PERFECT. Why couldn't he have kept that up rather than use the snarly, screechy voice he did?

it's funny how Jimmy Zoppi always sounds the same. He sounds just the same as his Meowth but still much better than Brian here
said at 5:53 PM on Sat Dec 24 2011
I...actually think Brian Zimmerman sounds better. Jimmy Zoppi could've done better but was a little TOO obnoxious in the part. Brian sounds more like an evil nerd, which is what Weevil is.
