Ryan Drummond Almost Returned

Recommended Posts

Oh, fuck off SEGA. My favorite Sonic voice returns, does a great job and is totally game and you give him crappy demands? My only hope in him returning is SEGA get's some new higher ups and they decide on an inevitable recast. :(

What amazes me, though, is that Drummond seems to have really liked the role. He's been screwed by SEGA twice, and yet he says he'd return in a heartbeat. Makes me like him even more.

The whole interview is pretty interesting. I like how he decided on the voice for Sonic. I can totally see it. The voice always seemed like the perfect voice for the character and really seemed like what would naturally coe out of his mouth.

I'm about to edit this into my original post on Page 3, but I'll put it here too:

SEGA had meetings about Ryan's union status. They spent enough money to cover at least sixteen games of Ryan Drummond acting just on airfare, hotels, and food for the executives from Japan to take part in these meetings.

Um, yes, uh, you sir. Yeah, you. Can you please stop posting about this? You're making me excessively bitter. x3

Sorry Nepenthe. >:

I think I'm going to stop at this point. I'm sure I've covered all the large details I'm allowed to at this point anyway.

...I don't think David Humphrey is union though! Save Shadow!

Bah, I'm just joshing. =P

Anyway, speaking of David Humphrey, has Sega ever talked to him since, or better yet, did he audition again too? I figure he and Ryan are somewhat close, considering Ryan recommended him for Shadow, so I'm just curious if that connection held out or if you even know anything about it.

You know, I'm perfectly happy with Roger, and Jason wasn't too bad, but Ryan's always been my favorite, and to hear what SEGA did to him makes me sick to my stomach. Seriously lost some respect for SEGA for pulling that on Ryan. The only thing that would make this worse is if they did the same to Humphrey. This whole thing makes me miss both Ryan and David even more.

Well, if the man want to be Sonic again, why didn't SEGA re-hire him to record again in the re-release of Sonic Adventure 2? That would probaly fix most of the weird lip sync and lifeless VA.

I was going to bring this up earlier but I wasn't sure which thread to do it in.

I'd love a redub of SA2 with Ryan Drummond and David Humphrey reprising their old roles. Maybe it would have been possible.

Maybe.

In other news, my daily reps ran out and now I can't like any of this page's posts. ;_; I'll keep a bookmark!

I feel so bad for these actors afterwards. Like that interview with jason awhile back made me feel so bad for the guy. He seemed to like doing sonic as well. Now this thing with Ryan. seriously I want to give these guys a huge hug!

If they'd redub redubbed SA2, that would mean no Deem Bristow and I don't want that. :-/

Perhaps try to re-hire the VA who are still alive (RIP Deem) to do they roles again. If not all of them want it, keep the old voices.

I just saying that, because I'm feeling really bad about Ryan, after reading that article :/

Wow, reading XD's post, I almost began to enrage..

Honestly, I'm perfectly fine with Roger, and I always found a way to appreciate all of Sonic's VA's, but even then, Ryan was pretty good.

I mean, he had a nice way of giving Sonic attitude, without making it sound like stopping Eggman was a becoming a boor to him.

Overall, I'm pretty much confused right now..

I explained that on Page 3, Jango. SEGA of America loves him which lead to his sneaky inclusion in that trailer.

Hum... sorry for reposting that xD But what's up with SEGA anyway? Do they like him or not?
