Default The New Naruto Cast

I'm surprised nobody else has done one for such a popular anime series. Anyway, since it's an anime, a FUNimation cast would be an ideal choice.
  • Naruto (pre-Shippuden): Stephanie Nadolny
  • Naruto (Shippuden and older): Sean Schemmel
  • Sasuke: Eric Vale
  • Sakura: Cynthia Cranz
  • Kakashi: J Michael Tatum
  • Pakkun: Chris Cason
  • Rock Lee: Todd Haberkorn
  • Neji: Aaron Dismuke
  • Tenten: Jamie Marchi
  • Gai/Guy: John Burgmeier
  • Hinata: Maxey Whitehead
  • Kiba: Kyle Hebert (wouldn't need to changed!)
  • Shino: Christopher Ayres
  • Kurenai: Luci Christian
  • Ino: Colleen Clinkenbeard (even just to match O'Shaughnessey)
  • Shikamaru: Justin Cook
  • Choji: R Bruce Elliott
  • Asuma: Dameon Clarke
  • Gaara: Chuck Huber
  • Kankuro: Jerry Jewell
  • Temari: Kara Edwards
  • Jiraiya: Christopher Robin Sabat
  • Tsunade: Stephanie Young
  • Shizune: Monica Rial
  • Konohamaru: Brina Palencia
  • Iruka: Jason Liebrecht
  • Orochimaru: Linda Chambers-Young
  • Yamato: Jeremy Inman
  • Sai: Greg Ayres

I'd rather see Linda Chambers Young as Orochimaru, if only to match the gender of Orochi's Japanese VA. Course, if we're going for a more Californian-based cast, Pat Carroll could get the job done just as well.

I still think Duncan Brannan could get the job done all right, but I get what you're saying about Linda.

...wait, what about Christopher Ayres?

A long time ago when I first read the manga (this was before I was ever exposed to the anime), I actually read Kakashi's lines in Patrick Warburton's voice. I know it seems ridiculous at first, but Pat's voice does blend well with Kakashi's periodically lax demeanor but also doesn't sound out-of-place during his more authorative moments. However, if we're going for a more conventional choice, I'd say Tom Hanks or his brother Jim would make a good-sounding Kakashi.

I'm flattered to be of inspiration in terms of casting Linda as Orochimaru, but thinking about it, I think Linda might be a little too high-pitched for the part. Kujira's original performance as Orochi has more of a low, husky sound to it, and I'd prefer an actress that can replicate that aspect in the English version. It's partially why I had Pat Carroll in mind for the part, since she's got the right sound for the role plus the experience in playing villainous characters.

As for the Pat/Tom thing, I am indeed speaking in terms of the role of Kakashi as in Naruto, Sakura and Sasuke's team leader, just so we're clear. While the matter of whether an actor fits the part is indeed important, what matters more to me is whether the sound of their voice is distinct enough; I want to be able to identify a character by the mere sound of their voice without actually seeing them speak. I do like the idea of casting Pat or Tom as the voice of Kakashi because they're not the kind of voices you immediately expect to come out of the character, but at the same time they fit him so well that you just tend to go with it.

Atypically of me considering I always prefer subs, I feel that Maile Flanagan is indeed as distinct-sounding voicing Naruto as Junko Takeuchi was, which is why I don't feel the need to recast that role.

See, I was thinking someone like Christopher Ayres for Orochimaru because he could get that same kind of creepy, menacing tone for Orochimaru as with a few of his other roles (namely Frieza and Dave McCartney from Golgo 13).

Now that I got a listen of Chris's Freeza, I can see where you're coming from with the creepy and menacing aspect. Nevertheless, I'd prefer casting a female actor in the part; for all we know, there could've been a specific reason why a woman was cast as Orochi in the original Japanese version, and whatever that reason may be I'd rather not risk offending the original director's probably-artistic intentions by putting a male into the role.
