Hypothetical Redub Casting

Pick your own cast for a hypothetical redub of NGE.

EASY MODE: Any actors from any medium, living or dead.
HARD MODE: Living voice actors only.

Grey DeLisle as Asuka
Kira Buckland as Misato
Maurice LaMarche as Gendo
Ellen McLain as Ritsuko
Tom Kenny as Kensuke

I haven't thought of anyone for Toji or Kaji. I'm also stuck between three choices for Shinji: Justin Roiland, Dante Basco, and Michael Cera.

Koichi Yamadera's roles (like Kaji Ryoji and Spike Spiegel) should always be played by Steve Blum. It should be in their contracts or something. That is, unless they’re gonna go for broke and cast George Clooney.

Option #1: Mel Blanc as everyone.
Option #2: Use the Rocky & Bullwinkle cast.

I'm not going to compile a serious cast list. If NGE got a redub, I'd want open auditions. Tapes would be reviewed audio-only. If I can recognize somebody's voice, they're out of the running.

Troy baker as Kaji
Ice Cube as Hyuga
Kiefer Sutherland as Gendo
Asuna voice from SAO for Asuka
RDJ as Fuyutski
Justin Bieber as Shinji

Honestly I wouldn't change most of the dub VA. I would like to see the originals come back and redub their role though given the chance.

One of the following:

Everyone voiced in English by Jamaicans using Japanese honorifics.
Everyone voiced by the VA cast of Alvin and the Chipmunks (animated series).
Steve Oedekerk voicing everyone and re-writing the dialogue, just like he did in Kung Pow: Enter the Fist.

I'd love to have the original Japanese cast record it all in proper Engrish.

Gilbert Gottfried as Shinji.
Fran Drescher as Misato.
Matthew McConaughey as Rei.
Mama June as Asuka
Rob Schneider as Touji
Jesse from "Breaking Bad" as Kensuke. Not the actor, just lines from the show.
The entire crew of TMZ as Ritsuko
Koichi Yamadera as Kaji. (His Engrish in Eva 2.0 is something)
Groot as Fuyutusuki
A Horny Bonobo Monkey as Maya
The Ghost of Tupac as Hyuga
The Ghost of Notorious B.I.G. as Aoba.

And they're all performing in snooty French accents.


That or just get the cast of the Bob's Burgers to do the show line for line but with a little bit of that Bob's Burgers feel.
Tina as Shinji of course.

Rebuild!Ritsuko has a sexy voice so I think that lady would be best.

Frank Welker as Rei, of course.

How about all the reading voices from Macs? They might nail down Rei perfectly, lol.

Switch out Keith David with Frakes and bring in Kevin Conroy for Kaji and I'm sold.

Jennifer Hale for Misato. Does she do cartoons?

I was battling between Frakes and Conroy for Kaji, but settled for Frakes. Even when he's playing someone of ambiguous moral fiber, he can't help but sound like one suave motherfucker. If I had to pick one of them for Gendo, Conroy would be it.

Jennifer Hale for Misato. Does she do cartoons?

She sure does. I need to go hunt down footage of her NOT doing her Patented British Accent now.

Aww, thanks. ^_^ Chrome ate my attempt to add a few more entries, but maybe I can put them back in later.

Anyone have a pseudo-serious suggestion for Maya that goes along with the theme?

Danny Devito as Shinji and Steve Blum making noises for all of the sound effects. The rest of the cast has no dialogue.

Shinji: Veronica Taylor.
Asuka: Tania Gunadi.
Rei: Emma Watson.
Ritsuko: Venus Terzo.
Misato: Susan Blu.

That's all I can think of at the moment.

Just have the cast of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" do the redub. Only specifics I can think of is Devito as Gendo and Charlie Day as Shinji

I'm going to think of an actually serious list for this and get back here with it.

EDIT: On second thought, actually no.

If this were actually going to be a thing, I'd rather not be distracted by name actors whom I already know. Just bring in really talented no-names and pick the best ones on that basis to generate the character around the voice, not the actor.

That said though, I think the following would be OK choices if I had no idea who they were:

Michael Cera as Shinji

Chloe Moretz as Asuka

Hugh Laurie as Gendo

JLaw as Misato

Ryan Reynolds as Kaji if we're not already going with Blum, who should Americanize every role Yamadera does by default.
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

I have a great fondness for Scott Menville, the voice of Lloyd Irving from Tales of Symphonia, and Kevin from Mission Hill. I'd love to see him voice Shinji.

I also think Melissa Fahn wouod make a good Asuka, largely due to her performance as Gaz in Invader Zim.

Oh and Steven Blum as Kaji, while I'm at it.
