Default Who do you think should be the next voice of Sonic the Hedgehog?

I think it's about time for Sega to stop their contract with Roger Craig Smith as the voice of Sonic. He's a good voice actor, but I think he was somewhat miscast as Sonic. Look, I don't hate him, it's just that his voice isn't suitable for the character. He sounds too deep, age-inappropriate, forced, and surfer-like. No offense to anyone, and let's NOT start a war here.

With that out of the way, vote for one of these casting choices for Sonic:

Quinton Flynn

Steve Staley

Yuri Lowenthal

Chris Patton

Jason Liebrecht

Johnny Yong Bosch

Todd Haberkorn

Josh Grelle

If I could make another suggestion. Maybe, Bryce Papenbrook, perhaps? Now granted, I'm not the biggest fan of him. But I think that he could be a pretty good fit regardless.
Him, Lucien Dodge or Orion Acaba. I don't know too much of either of the latter ones' work off the top of my head to form a solid opinion on them, but they both seem to have very youthful, energetic-sounding voices appropriate for the Blue Blur.

Tough call, really, I don't know who could sound youthful but also act well- Ryan Drummond reprising the role would be ideal for me (though I know it's not happening), but maybe Yuri Lowenthal?

Out of the ones here, I'm going with Flynn, but personally, I'd rather pick someone like Brian Drummond since he's not someone you'd immediately expect in the part. I did consider Sam Vincent and Richard Ian Cox, but I didn't think they were creative enough choices.

My excuses for not including Bryce or Lucien.

I don't think the Sonic series needs yet another voice change. (Unless it's going back to Ryan Drummond and co.)

That said, I'd go with Quinton Flynn of the options here. Bit of a typecast since he's famous for voicing another furry animal game character, but I always thought James Arnold Taylor would be cool as well.

There's probably a younger/newer actor out there who could pull off the part well too. And I like that so far all of Sonic's major VAs have been "unconventional" choices (even in Japanese, it was stated that Junichi Kanemaru was cast because of his experience in dubbing movies rather than anime), so I'd like if they could repeat that, if at all.

I think Lucien Dodge as Sonic could work & while we're at it lets have Erica Mendez as Amy

^ I pretty much agree with these word for word.

Lucas Gilbertson would be a nice choice, and Rino Romano probably would've been good back in his prime. Quinton Flynn, Brian Drummond and Yuri Lowenthal sound like pretty good ideas, but otherwise I honestly don't really care.

Give it to Lucas Gilbertson. After seeing some of his animations on YouTube along with his BFF Carol-Anne Day. Lucas legit needs to voice Sonic for real. Honestly he'd combine all the best traits of all the past VA's and then make the character his own.

I do like the Quinton Flynn suggestion, he's kinda wasted on Shadow and hasn't done much as of late either.

I'd also like Richard Ian Cox to have a stab at Sonic too.
