The voice of Dr. Eggman since the Sonic X cartoon in 2003 and the video game Shadow the Hedgehog in 2005 took advantage of this good news to “reframe” kindly the fans who do not understand some decisions on casting choices : “You know what they say… the more the merrier, the more we laugh! You haven’t finished hearing about me as Dr. Eggman in the Sonic the Hedgehog video games yet! Please prepare your ears accordingly. If you guess the opposite, SURPRISE !!! Now, if you will excuse me, I have to stock up on lozenges. On a personal level, I know you want to speculate on what happened and the possible casting choices, but remember that in real life acting careers are driven by auditions, callbacks. , bookings and rejections. It’s a little more complicated than picking sides for kickball.”
