Yeah. When people talk about the best voice over actors you hear Frank Welker, Jim Cummings, Tress MacNeille, Tara Strong, Billy West, Corey Burton, Rob Paulsen, Kevin Michael Richardson, John DiMaggio, Jeff Bennett, Jess Harnell, and Tom Kenny. Anime actors outside of Steve Blum and Crispin Freeman are usually left out too.

But Phil's name is almost never

Underrated doesn't mean that they are not getting a lot of work. It means that they are not recognized on the same level as other people. Darran Norris gets some recognition. But not on the level as some of his peers. And no one really ever talks about how prolific of a voice actor Lacey Chabert is.

Matt Mercer...to casting directors. People keep using him as the next Troy Baker in terms of how he is cast. But, his voice is very different. It's fine for the first few times, but man...he can do much more. : /

We've stated this before, but as I said, his timbre is very similar, but they speak very differently. Troy's is dreamier & sexier-sounding, Matt's is warmer & friendlier, sounding more like Roger Craig Smith.

But yeah, people overuse his natural speaking voice. But I do think certain VA's do well in their regular voice. Yuri & Warburton, for example.

Jon Olson; practically the only guy, other than Frank Welker, Dee Bradley Baker, Steve Blum and Fred Tatasciore who does voice overs for animals or monsters. It would be cool to hear him in some upcoming DC animated series or at least one of the movies.

David W Collins. He does some anime, but mostly voice work for Star Wars games and he's really good.

I wouldn't consider Drummond underrated.

Anyway, another actor that comes to mind as underrated is Dan Castellaneta.
