GaminGuys May Podcast With Sonics Eggman

This month we talk with voice actor Mike Pollock (Eggman or Dr Robotnik amongst others) about voice recording, projects and retro-games. Steven Gurevitz (PRIF / Voice-over company owner), Forever1Ghost and GaminGuys staff all join in, chatting and discussing those things you just may never hear behind the scenes.

Pollock has provided voices for many characters including Raoul Contesta, Cheren and Drayden in Pokémon, Meat in Ultimate Muscle, Langston Lickatoad in Viva Piñata, Suikyou in Ikki Tousen, Mitsuru Minowa in Magic User’s Club and Beast in the motion comic adaptation of Astonishing X-Men.

Pollock has appeared as the narrator for 4Kids shows and some promos on the original Fox Box and 4Kids TV.

In the song “Neighbours Ate My Zombies” by the progressive-rock band “Freen In Green,” Pollock voices the Neighbour.

Dr Eggman

Sonic the Hedgehog

Starting with the 2003 premiere of Sonic X, Pollock plays the roles of Doctor Eggman, Professor Gerald, and Eggman Nega. Pollock took over the role of Eggman in the video games starting with the 2005 game Shadow the Hedgehog. This is because Sega decided to make the voices in the series and games match, removing all of their previous actors. It is a common misconception that the reason for this was that the death of actor Deem Bristow led to this decision, when in actuality, it was already decided by the time of his death.

Unlike several 4Kids voice actors, which have often received negative reaction from some fans and critics, Pollock was widely praised for his role.

On July 15, 2010, it was announced that Sega will be changing the voice actors for the Sonic the Hedgehog characters, moving the voice recording from 4Kids in New York to Studiopolis in California; however, it was also announced that Pollock will continue to voice Dr. Eggman. He lives in New York, but communicates with the Studiopolis cast via headphones and edited voice-tracks.

Pollock currently voices Dr. Eggman on the TV series Sonic Boom. The show made its debut on November 8, 2014.
