Not bad. However, isn't Crispin Freeman an L.A.-based VA? Maybe you meant to put J. Michael Tatum there? Not trying to be mean at all.

You know for some reason, Mike Pollick's Eggman reminds me of a mix between Mark Hamill and John Dimaggio.

So anyone think either of them would make a good Eggman?

DiMaggio, definitely. Hamil I feel would be a type cast.

Oh, darn, this one's pretty tricky since I find that many of those ladies could work very well for her. Christine Marie Cabanos, Hynden Walch, Melissa Fahn, and Wendee Lee stand out, but everyone else aside from Sandy Fox (who'd be a better Cream honestly) is sweet! :thumbsup:

Thanks for your support, man. I appreciate it. :)

You're right about Crispin being a LA based VA. I must have heard him in a FUNimation dub and thought he was in Dallas.

Not bad at all. Also, which voice of Micah Solusod made you cast him as Jet? As an alternative of Jet, would you maybe like Sonny Strait?

I was originally thinking Sonny, but I remembered Jet is supposed to be younger than Sonic. I was going based off his Yukine voice from Noragami.

No problem, pal, I can understand. Dallas-wise, Vic Mignogna is your main pick for Sonic, as you saw that list of mine. Now, L.A.-wise, based on the guys I listed for Sonic, who'd be your pick?

Hmmm... I'm cool with Roger, but I'd like to hear Johnny Yong Bosch as the Blue Blur.

Nice choice, Johnny's had quite an experience voicing hot-blooded characters. I also respect your opinion about you being cool with Roger, you're perfectly entitled to it. Personally, I'd go with Yuri Lowenthal. Why? Well, because I think he's got this kind of mix between Ryan, Jason and Roger. I mean, think about it. It could be something we could all enjoy in the end.

Yeah. I was thinking either Yuri or Johnny. But ultimately Johnny won me over due to his voice and emotional range lending itself better toward Sonic's hyperactive yet chill personality.

I see. Which voice(s) of Johnny do you think would work for Sonic? You know, I can also see Johnny as Shadow using his Sasori voice.

A combination of his Zhang Bao voice in Dynasty Warriors 8 and his Bumblebee voice in Transformers: War for Cybertron.
As for Shadow, I think Kirk Thornton's Jin voice from Samurai Champloo could work.

Hm, what you said for Sonic could work well, I was just hearing some clips here and on YouTube. As for Shadow, however, I've never heard his Jin voice. Would you mind posting a link for me? Also, I remember you suggesting Dave Wittenberg as the latter.

Yeah. Dave would work as Shadow with Johnny as Sonic, for a the sake of a new voices. But here's his Jin voice (Samurai in blue with the glasses):

Yeah, he'd be decent enough for a Shadow voice. Not only is Kirk using the wrong voice, but the recent writing is also letting him down. I actually think Kirk should use this voice for Shadow: http://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/...anghai/Batman/

LA-wise, if I were to go for more of an anime-style voice cast, I've also been thinking that Erik Scott Kimerer (one of my favourite rising star VAs) could work pretty well as Sonic. His voice has this youthful and energetic feel (not to mention it sounds like a pretty nice blend of JYB and Spike Spencer), and his work as Alibaba Saluja particularly has the right sort of sound.

Shanghai Batman could work for Shadow too. I thought his Jin was a bit closer to David Humphrey, tho. And the writing has definitely been lackluster for the recent games. Ian Flynn teased that he may be writing for the 2017 game, though. Which I'd be incredibly stoked for.

Oh, definitely! Actually, I think he'd be a better choice than JYB now that I think about it. His Alibaba gives off some Ryan Drummond vibes.
Seems like he'll be voicing Speed O' Sound Sonic as well. Lol.

Touché. On the topic of Shadow, if Jason came back as the character, I think he should use this voice: http://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/...Joe-Shimamura/

Thanks, man. I just thought that voice sounded similar to David's. You know, that was actually dubbed at NYAV Post. If Jason was to return as Sonic, I think he should pretty much sound smooth and natural like in Black Knight, and improve upon it. As for the voice itself, I wouldn't mind if he reverts back to the Unleashed voice.

Black Knight definitely was Jason's best performance, as well as one of the best Sonic performances we've had. I dunno who the voice director was for that game, but they need to return, imo.

Not bad, buddy.

For Tails, I think I'd most likely go with Mona Marshall, since she's a natural at voicing young boys. For Knuckles, IDK, I'll have to think about it. For Amy, same thing.

I gotta admit, my Tails and Knuckles weren't that well thought out. Lol.
I'm not as familiar with LA actors as Dallas ones. But I know that Wendee Lee would make a **** good Amy.

I'd recommend, if you're looking for LA voice talent, someone like Patrick Seitz or Matthew Mercer could work for Knux. Alternatively, someone like Kaiji Tang could quite possibly work also, I think.

Seitz is my top pick; largely as his gruff, deep voice reminds me of Dan Green's to an extent (similarly to Travis), but there's enough slight differences that he'd be able to really make it more his own. Plus, he's got the right sorta gruff attitude AND comedic timing, Ragna the Bloodedge in particular stands out to me as an exemplar for this, to capture the character.

Hmmm. I haven't heard to much of Seitz outside of Lyric in Sonic Boom and Franky from One Piece. But he seems like he could work. Who do you think could work for a Scott Dreier type of LA Knuckles?
