And doing yet another update on my cast; will be working also on a MUCH larger cast, covering a more extensive history of the character but these were the ones I felt I had to get down.

Sonic the Hedgehog: Erik Kimerer (Alibaba Saluja, Magi) OR Max Mittelman (Blurr, Transformers: Rescue Bots)

Miles Prower/Tails: Erica Mendez (Aladdin, Magi)
Knuckles the Echidna: Patrick Seitz (Ragna the Bloodedge, BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger)
Amy Rose: Cherami Leigh (Lucy Heartfillia, Fairy Tail)
Cream the Rabbit: Jessica DiCicco (Olette, Kingdom Hearts II)
Vector the Crocodile: Fred Tatasciore (Magnus, Kid Icarus: Uprising)
Espio the Chameleon: Dave Wittenberg (Kakashi Hatake, Naruto)
Charmy Bee: Cristina Vee (Hawk, The Seven Deadly Sins)

Shadow the Hedgehog: Ray Chase (Noctis Lucis Caelum, Final Fantasy XV)
Rouge the Bat: Megan Hollingshead (Mai Valentine, Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters)
Silver the Hedgehog: Lucien Dodge (Sin Kiske, Guilty Gear Xrd)
Blaze the Cat: Courtnee Draper (Elizabeth Comstock, Bioshock Infinite)

Doctor Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik: John DiMaggio (Drew Lipsky/Doctor Drakken, Kim Possible)

I found these really creative & interesting. Although that said, I think Fred (or DiMaggio tbh) as Killer Croc would be more suited to Vector.

& Jessica DiCicco has a deeper voice than Cherami Leigh, ergo I feel maybe they'd switch roles, as Cream is a more innocent/smaller character than Amy.

Re: Sonic the Hedgehog
I personally disagree with the idea that Fred would be better suited with his Croc voice; I find the Croc voice itself is TOO reptilian and imposing, perhaps. Maybe, if you want that sort of snarl/rasp, Ripjaws would be a better exemplar; it's got that similar sort of feel to it, but it's a bit lighter in tone, which really helped to sell comedic delivery. And Vector's character is, at the end of the day, entertaining partially for the downright comedic moments.

I wholly acknowledge John DiMaggio would make for a really good Vector and, hell, even Big the Cat too. I just... really feel he'd shine best as Eggman.

As for swapping DiCicco and Leigh, perhaps... but I do also prefer Cherami Leigh as Amy over Jessica DiCicco; she's got the right balance of cute and spunk, particularly as Lucy, that I feel Amy needs, while Jessica DiCicco's voice suits the cuter characters for me, even if it is vocally deeper.

But thank you for your response. ^_^ Ray as Shadow, especially, is a very recent idea of mine but, the more I reflected on it, the more I felt it was perfect; his Noctis balanced the best attributes of Jason Griffith and David Humphrey together, but was also a loooooot smoother.

Re: Sonic the Hedgehog
Your cast list is pretty interesting, Lion's Edge. I really like Seitz as Knuckles, Tatasciore as Vector, and of course DiMaggio as Eggman.

Don't suppose you'd wanna critique my list?

I will admit, Keith Ferguson as Shadow, I had not originally thought of... but I could see it working. The real standouts for me, though, are your choices for the Chaotix Trio; particularly, I love the concept of Clancy Brown as Vector. I feel he'd absolutely nail the character with his distinctive voice; I also really dig Nolan North/Crispin Freeman as Knux, Liam O'Brien as Silver (something like his Mugen would work pretty well, actually), and Kari Wahlgren (who, alongside Laura Bailey, is probably my favourite voice actress in the industry) as Blaze (one of my favourite Sonic characters).

it's a cool cast!

And thanks for responding to mine. ^^

Re: Sonic the Hedgehog
Thanks, glad you liked my list.

And no problem, I've really enjoyed the lists you've been making lately.

Re: Sonic the Hedgehog
So I just heard a placeholder clip Ryan Drummond recorded as Shadow before he was replaced with David Humphrey. My very first impression of it is that it kind of sounded like Cam Clarke.

And then it hit me...

Cam Clarke as Shadow?

... yes. YES.

Considering how he STILL can pull off teenage/young adult voices as well as he does at 59, a younger-sounding Kratos Aurion blended with a dash of his mature Corrin voice? That'd be greeeeeaaaaaaat.

Re: Sonic the Hedgehog
I don't usually go for things like this, mainly because of my indifference toward most of these characters (save for one particular group), but I figured it'd be an interesting experiment to try out.

Re: Sonic the Hedgehog
After rewatching the TMNT "Pizza Friday" short, and generally liking his take on Donnie, how about the idea of A. J. Locascio as Silver?
