Stream Tomorrow & Partners VA quiz

So I'm definitely doing a stream tomorrow, now that all these goddamn obstacles are out of my way, and it'll be the request stream, so yeah, sorry about all that!

As for the second part of this journal, I've gotten this question quite a bit, so I might as well answer it publically, so I can reference it later on. What voice actors/actresses do I envision for the cast of Partners, were it an audiobook/cartoon? I answer thusly:

Natalie - Tara Strong
Carrie - Grey DeLisle (Sam from Danny Phantom)
Samantha - Tabitha St. Germain
Max - Scott Menville (Robin from Teen Titans)
Erwin - Joanne Vannicola (Willy Zilla [Hah!])
Jacent - James Sie (Jackie Chan Adventures)

Think it's apropo? Got another suggestion? Say so in the comments!

And here I woulda pegged Greg Cipes (Beast Boy from Teen Titans) as Max X3  I always hear Max as having one of those young gravitas to his voice, like he spent most of his younger childhood years belly-laughing until he was wheezing, and the strain stuck in his voice.

*laughs* It's funny, everybody hears Max differently.

Well, not everyone. I pretty much heard the same Beast Boy voice Cole did.

Here-here!

Doesn't help us that the boy plays across a wide vocal range ;p

I personally do not know voice actors, so I cant answer that without demanding a stash of helium balloons.

Wow that's really helpful.  Now for a bonus round...

How do you picture Cedric's voice?
Zevaxx

So, would Jacent have that hollow, nasal, almost-English aspect like Jackie from JCA?
Norithics
5 years, 4 months ago
Pretty much! He doesn't have the "Hao" lilt quite as much, and his accent isn't quite as thick, but it's still very noticeable~
Zevaxx

Oh cool.
Scott Menville actually wouldn't be bad for Cedric. He voiced a central character in Tales of Symphonia, and that was heavy on the drama- so he could pull it off well as Cedgie. Him, or maybe Daniel Southworth (Vergil from Devil May Cry 3).
...Actually, now I see the appeal of Menville for Max, instead of Greg Cipes. Having Cipes would be practically transplanting Beast Boy from Teen Titans to here, and as fun as that sounds on paper, it would essentially be Beast Boy as a post-splice human, taking away from the character.
And as silly as this sounds, what about Lanipator as Erwin? He can put it a pitch or two higher, add in some jitter and that'd be close enough I guess. Maybe. Possibly. Okay maybe not that last one.

Natalie - Honey Boo Boo
Carrie - Rosanne Barr
Sam - Fran Drescher
Max - Kevin Costner (Because he couldn't do any accent ever, at gun point.)
Erwin - Lewis Black
Jacent - Ben Stein

Ah, but seriously.
Natalie - Mae Whitman (Katara)
Carrie - Janet Varney (Korra)
(I know. Two Avatar voices. But just imagine them playing off one another as Nat and Cat.)
Sam - No argument.
Max - Uknown. In my brain Max has this light, Spanish lilt. His voice is actually pretty feminine in my head.
Most VAs I've heard go so over the top, beating you over the head with their super-Spanish accent.
The way that an American does a horrible stereotype. I just can't see Max doing that, even for laughs.
Erwin - MEEEEE! Just kidding. Sean Marquette (Mac, Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends) Maybe an
octave or two lower, but he has the intelligence and nerd-squeek right.
Jacent - Phil LaMarr (Samurai Jack) Pulled back a liiiiiittle from the usual accent.

These are some voice actor choices I can definitely agree with.

*laughs so hard at the joke list*

Oh, man. Your list is so great, though. I fear your Katara/Korra may override my previous convictions!

Interesting choices. Do you view James Sie as doing his Jackie Chan voice or a different one?
Norithics
5 years, 4 months ago
Something close to it, but not quite as thick.

Natalie - Steve Blum
Carrie - Steve Blum
Samantha - Steve Blum
Max - Steve Blum
Erwin - Steve Blum
Jacent - Steve Blum

Wait, no! For Max I want the guy who voiced Wolverine.
Chaytel

You could just say 'the guy who voiced _______' and it still works, almost without fail.
Zevaxx

lol Steven Blum doing the voicework, he's switching back and forth between the different speech patterns and pitches XD
Chaytel
5 years, 4 months ago
I'm not sure Steve Blum actually HAS different speech patterns or pitches.

By request, do you mean correspondence or a regular stream?

When you become rich and famous, Nori, you totally need to make a Partners cartoon.

Kickstarter! Indiegogo!

Hrm... Far as the voice actors go, the only one I've never heard that I can recall is Joanne Vannicola, so I can't really give an opinion on that one. But the rest of them, I have to say they'd be decent choices. I personally can't think of anyone better myself, so yeah.

Also, I'll be keeping my eyes open and hope that I'll catch the stream for once. XD

Willy Zilla?
Zevaxx

From the show "My Dad the Rock Star". Willy is the son of the world-famous rockstar Rock Zilla- his, and by extension Williy's- actual last name is Zilla.

It actually works out quite well. Erwin even looks like Willy a little bit. And though he was a protaganist, the voicework for him came off as wallflower-y; If you've never seen the show, the actress who does Willy makes him sound like a meek, gravel-voiced British orphan.
Overall a rather good choice ^_^

Frank Welker as Cedric.

"DO AS I COMMAND!" XD

Heh, I would've assumed that Jim Cummings or Billy West would've made it somewhere.

Norithics Himself: Gotta be careful here... Hm... John Simm with an American English accent. Spritely, eccentric, yet he'll grope a coworker's breast as casually as stretching his arms, and plot such gleeful schemes at the same time. If not him, then Jonah Hill. Just imagine him saying "Alright, this is going to be the most masterful Swedish meatball heist in the history of balls!" or "Excuse me, Miss *flips through clipboard*... Pennytickle... I'm gonna ask you to lift your shirt and show me your boobies. ...Yeah, well, you signed a contract, so that's, that's a legally binding contract right there, see? ...Thank you. *to whole room* Remember ladies! Tits or get-the-fuck-out!"
