Will the real Donald Duck please stand up?

I was searching Twitter for other voice-actor "tweets" when I stumbled across a gentleman calling himself VActor4Disney. It caught my attention. As it turns out VActor4Disney is actually the page of an aspiring Disney voice-actor. Still intrigued, I gave one of his videos a looksee. You know what? He's good! Check out his impression of
Donald Duck, below.

While you have to give the guy credit for knowing what he wants in life, there is one slight problem... These characters are already cast! And they will likely remain in the care of their current voice-actors until they are no longer able to replicate the voices themselves. That could be a long wait! However, if the need ever arises for a next-generation Donald Duck... I think VActor4Disney has a real shot! Don't you?

Maybe this vintage commercial for Donald Duck Orange Juice will convince you.

Sounds like the same duck to me.

Quack at ya' later!



  1. Thank you very much for the nice article Dan Roberts! VA4D

  2. Thanks again Dan Roberts,

    Yes you are right. The voices of Donald, Mickey and Goofy are filled at this time. However, I am looking more towards the future and potential backup possibilites if needed. I will be patient and see what the future holds. Thanks again for the great writeup. Daniel-VoiceActor4Disney

  3. Daniel,

    You are very welcome. Best of luck to you on your voice-over journey!
