Ryan Drummond Almost Returned

Recommended Posts

Pfft. I don't know if you're serious or not.

I could ask you the same thing; you called the dude with a brow that makes him look perpetually angry the most attractive of the lot. =/

Was Jason immune to this whole union hurdle because he worked for 4Kids, or did he have the same non-union situation as Roger?

Are you asking whether or not he got the part in the games because of 4Kids? I thought that mainly came down to Sega wanting the casting between the show and the games to be consistent across all regions.

Yeah, 4Kids is non-union.

Hogfather's post is very well-researched, but the fact still remains that SEGA straight-up told Ryan he was gonna be Sonic again. It would be a bit different if Ryan already knew about these limitations beforehand, but he didn't. SEGA took him along for a ride and then expected him to just abandon his entire income.

Omo Chao beats everything.

Omochao is good, but then there's also Elise:

What do you mean by all regions?

Remember the last time we did something like this and the mods came in? Yeah, just brining it up.

So wait. They called back Jason. So how come he wasn't hired instead? Did he ask for to much?

I'd say because he didn't do a good enough job for them with his audition.

Well, the guy also brought out that Roger is being paid very low. I'm sure SEGA is paying less money for Roger compared to Jason (Contracted through 4kids).

It's not so much that they couldn't afford Ryan as much as it is they don't feel like paying him the amount necessitated by his union. Roger is probably working for very little too, but he's got other gigs like the Regular Show to make up for it anyway. Speaking of which, Ryan said in this new interview that he's still doing a good bit of VA which I'm curious to look up. It just feels like he's dropped off the map, as have the other oldest actors.

Not gonna go and say "fuck you, Sega" because there's only one side of the story.

Things can always change in business before something is finalized. There's always a chance that they didn't tell Ryan he got the job, but instead that they thought he would get it. Even if this is true, a higher up probably changed it for whatever reason would be most convenient for Sega. Either way, Roger came along and was obviously better in Sega's eyes for the part for some reason.

I do feel sorry for Ryan because he got his hopes up due to his claims of Sega leading him on, but I also feel I should say that this is nothing new. It's business, it hurts, and it happens to all of us. At an interview for a job I really wanted before, the manager told me that he liked me and that I'd receive a call in a few days... and due to my disappointment, I never received the call. If Ryan has been in the acting biz for this long then I have no idea why he's acting like this never happened to him before.

There's a very clear difference between not getting a job at all because someone was better than you or had better connections or life getting in the way, and actually being told you got the job but you would have to work for little to nothing and subsequently turning it down on that front, which is what happened. All Ryan has really said is that it's a slap in the face to be considered for a position and strung along to such an extent that even your agent says you have it, only to realize at the end that having the job would be untenable all along. I don't see how that's unreasonable.

Yes, I know. Essentially, Ryan had the job after auditioning but he had to turn it down due to his personal well-being. I still think this kind of thing is probably very common in the acting business, but whatever. Shit happens.
