Dan Green (born February 7, 1975 in San Rafael, California), also credited as Jay Snyder, is one of 4Kids' most famous voice actors due largely to his dual roles as Yugi Muto and Atem in Yu-Gi-Oh! and Yu-Gi-Oh! GX and Spike in Ape Escape 2.
Voice Acting CareerEdit
A while prior to working at 4Kids, he worked on two adult animes.
He has voiced Knuckles the Echidna since being cast in the role for Sonic X. He also voices Mephiles (in Sonic the Hedgehog), Vector (since Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games), Storm the Albatross, as well as Professor Pickle and the Ice Cream Vendor (in Sonic Unleashed).
On November 25th, 2011, Green lost his wife, Michal, during childbirth to twins. The voice of Dr. Eggman, Mike Pollock, to help support Green, set up a website appealing to the fans of Green's work for donations to help him with his new children. A second website also exists.
- At a convention called Sonicon in November 2010, Mike Pollock had called Dan on the phone who answered a few questions: the first being he had also auditioned for Dr. Eggman and even did his own take on Eggman, second being that during the Knuckles audition had watched cutscenes from Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure 2 to study Knuckles and had even emailed Scott Drier to help him out with Knuckles, third being that next to Yugi, Knuckles is his second favorite role.
