Ryan Drummond Almost Returned

Recommended Posts

I just found it interesting that he said it was Generations and not Colors (since he mentioned Jason and the 4kids cast). Maybe he got it wrong since it would have been weird hiring a new cast for Colors and then go back to the first for Generations.

Also if that's what Sega offered then it's messed up yo.

Wait, what? Where does it say that?

This bit here. Bolded specifically.

Ryan- In a heartbeat! I never wanted to leave! But as most of you know, we were all let go by Sega and replaced for reasons too vast to go into right now. There was a glimmer of hope a while back when Generations was being cast. Sega asked me to come to LA and “re-audition” for the role of Sonic because they were doing the same thing to Jason and that cast that they did to us years before. So I went and they were very pleased to have me back and they actually said they were going to have me back and it was going to be this great reunion. Then when the actual offer came to my agent, it was a complete joke. They asked me to leave my union (which is how I make a living), do all kinds of work for no compensation, etc. It was a real slap in the face. I really don’t see it ever happening. Sega is a huge corporation with zillions of dollars and they don’t see any need to change the way they do things. There’s a lot more detail I can’t go into because of legal reasons, but let’s just say that I wish I’d been voicing Sonic all this time, I would return in a heartbeat, but if Sega ever decides to hire me again the devil’s making sno-cones. It’s cool though, I would love to be Sonic again, but I have plenty of VO work without Sega.

Why would SEGA go to the effort of summoning back Ryan and Jason if they didn't have the prerogative of the possibility of replacing Roger? Unless Ryan accidentally got mixed-up with Colours...

That's what I'm thinking. I really enjoyed Roger Craig Smiths work and I think it's pretty annoying and fucked up on SEGA's part that they're thinking of replacing Roger already. They should've recast Ryan Drummond instead of going through the trouble of hiring a brand new cast and just pissing more people off.

I hate all this voice actors change and pretty fed up with it. Just hire a voice cast and stick with them already. sleep.png

I imagine that's probably either a typo by the website or just an error on his part. He probably gets mixed up with all these auditions and if you're not a big fan of Sonic then you're not likely to remember names very well.

Well, dunno how to react to this. I've always gotten the impression that Sega weren't all that friendly, but I also thought they were getting better with all this new community interaction we've been having lately. I hate to say it, but it really lowers my opinion of them as a whole when they treat genuine, hard-working people like Ryan badly. It's not a good look for them and asking someone to leave their union is just ridiculous!

Very disappointing to read. D: I had always hoped Ryan would come back and voice Sonic in some way. If not the games, then at least a new cartoon series or something. I know this seems to be a... senstitive subject (or at least it was six years ago), but I really gotta say Ryan is still my favorite Sonic voice. Cheesy acting aside, I really think the actual voice itself was the best sounding one, and fit Sonic the most to me. Not to mention, it's the most similar to Sonic's Japanese voice. XD
