Joel McDonald

Joel McDonald is a FUNimation ADR director by trade and an actor by birth. You’re probably not familiar with his early work, but rest assured that his portrayal of Hickory Dickory the Mouse in Ms. Waddell’s 6th grade class play was inspirational.

Since then, Joel has directed shows like “Big Windup!”, “Initial D”, “Sgt. Frog”, “Deadman Wonderland”, and a dozen or so more. You can also hear Joel’s totally adequate voice acting in “Sekirei” (Minato), “Initial D” (Takumi), “Fairy Tail” (Zeref), “Baccano!” (Jacuzzi), “D. Grayman” (Jasdero), “Hetalia” (Poland), and “Attack on Titan” (Milieus).

Gamers might recognize him as Captain Flynt and Tector Hodunk from “Borderlands 2” or Deputy Lee in “Walking Dead: Survival Instinct.”

Oh, and he plays Meow in “Space Dandy”, which he’s currently co-directing.

Joel rarely bites, so come say hi.
