EDITOR'S OPINIONToday on the Batman VC section we have a little something for this criminal in Gotham... TONY ZUCCO! We shall begin with the Batman Animated series in which Thomas F Wilson is the one whom voiced Zucco in the 2 parter "Robin's Reckoning". At first Thomas' voice for Tony Zucco seems a bit higher than I would think but then it grew on me fairly quickly and Thomas tried to go for the New Yorker accent for the role in which wasn't one of the best New Yorker voices I have heard but it was decent. Thomas' performance for Tony Zucco was fairly fitting as well as a young hotshot punk whom is a rather slimy negotiator (but I did like Thomas' delivery of when Tony Zucco was angrily vowing that the Circus Manager WILL have to call him soon). Thomas' work as Tony Zucco in the series seems to be comparatively average at best when it comes to this show's voice work but it is a pretty good performance nevertheless.
About 13 years after the Batman TAS 2-parter episode "Robin's Reckoning" aired in 2006 there was a "The Batman" episode called "A Matter of Family" in which Mark Hamill voiced Tony Zucco. Mark Hamill's voice and performance for Tony Zucco felt VERY natural for the role right from the start. Mark gives a different reason why he can do a villainous DC Comics role well as he played the role of Tony Zucco as a smooth-talking slimy extortionist. Seriously Mark's voice and performance as Tony Zucco has a great mix of smooth-talking charisma and yet a rather sinister sense of sliminess. Mark Hamill's work as Tony Zucco is easily the best of the "One-Shot" characters in the show and a fine example of Mark Hamill's voice work. Overall while Thomas F. Wilson wasn't bad I am clearly going with Mark Hamill on this one.
