Yes, he's one of the greatest directors the 20th century has to offer.

I mean his casting choices in Hulk Vs are superb!!! I mean, Steve Blum as Wolverine, Fred Tatasciore as the Hulk, Jay Brazeau as Volstagg, Janyse Jaud as Deathstrike, Mark Acheson as Sabretooth and Graham McTavish as Loki are all great casting choices.

But my personal favorite of Simone's casting choices for Hulk Vs is, yeah, you guessed it... NOLAN NORTH as DEADPOOL!!! Perfect casting choice.

Yeah, he's got quite an impressive resume. With that name I thought he was a woman. I know there are men named Jamie, but it being paired with Simone just made me think he was a she.:laughing:

Gotta admit, pretty surprised no one has mentioned Kris Zimmerman. She's my number one voice-over director in my book. Metal Gear Solid and a number of other games feature great voice over work thanks to her outstanding directing.

Ginny McSwain, as well. Can't argue with her work in Mass Effect 1 and 2, and Kid Icarus Uprising had the best English voice over I've ever heard, very funny and well cast, thanks to Ginny McSwain.

Anyone who's mentioned Gordon Hunt, Jack Fletcher and Andrea Romano is right on the money.

In all honesty, I usually tend to prefer VO directors who have a strong background in American animation, particularly from the early to mid 90's. But that's just my personal preference.

Here are my top 10 best voice directors of all time:

1) Collette Sunderman

She is the best voice director of Los Angeles-based Western Animation ever. Thanks to her, all of the animated television series where she worked as a voice director have voice casts composed primarily of celebrity actors and comedians. I think that she is perfect for the voice director of an anime television series from Japan.

2) Kris Zimmerman

One of my favorite voice directors of Los Angeles-based Western Animation. All of the animated television series where she worked as a voice director have voice casts composed of Los Angeles-based Western Animation voice actors, celebrity actors and comedians.

3) Andrea Romano

She is definitely the queen of voice directing.

4) Ginny McSwain

She is of course alumni of Hanna-Barbera and animated television series where she worked as a voice director have voice casts composed primarily of prolific voice actors. These voice casts also have some celebrity actors and comedians.

5) Kelly Ward

She is the expert for the animated television series with voice casts composed primarily of well-known Los Angeles-based Western Animation voice actors.

6) Susan Blu

Besides Los Angeles, she also directed voices in Vancouver and New York City. Her voice directing work is ultimately perfect.

7) Stuart M. Rosen

His voice direction is definitely perfect.

8) Charlie Adler

His voice direction is excellent.

9) Anybody from Los Angeles-based anime voice acting school

I prefer their voice directing.

10) Anybody from Vancouver-based voice acting school

All of the properties dubbed in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada have voice casts composed primarily of popular Vancouver-based voice actors and well-known Vancouver-based actors of stage, film and television. They also participated as radio actors as evidenced at https://archive.org/details/VPoint.

What do you think, folks?

Like your choices. I loved Zimmerman's work in Mortal Kombat Defenders of the Realm, and McSwain does a great job in Rescue Bots.

Also, I agree about the Vancouver-based school directors. They are great.
