    Well, while we're waiting for Shippuden, I thought we'd speculate on who we think should voice Akatsuki. Well, other than the ones we already know [Crispin Freeman as Itachi, Kirk Thornton as Kisame, Quinton Flynn as Deidara, etc.].

    I got the idea for this from a similar topic in the Bleach forum regarding the Espada.

    I repeat, this is dub speculation, so it's not a topic for sub only watchers.

    I believe Kate Higgins should VA for Konan. She's really good. It would have been nice to see Chris Sabat do VA for someone like Kakazu.

    Yeah, it would be nice if Sabat voiced Kakuzu. The problem is that Sabat voices for Funimation dubbed animes only. There's not many Funimation VAs that voice for other dub companies (Kyle Herbert's the only VA I know that doesn't voice for just Funimation).

    remember vic is Iccaku on bleach. How about Paul St. Peter for kakuzu. Va for Jirocho, and the nine tails fox.

    Kakuzu should be played by Paul St. Peter.
    Sasori should be played by either Roger Craig Smith or Sam Reigal.
    Tobi should be played by Richard Steven Horvitz.

    That's all for now, folks.

    Does Paul St. Peter have a normal voice? Cause his Grand Fisher and Nine-tails are too deep to hold a lot of depth.

    He did Leomon from Digimon with his normal voice. I think Kakuzu should be a few notches above Kyuubi without being scratchy or gravely.

    He did boss Jirocho from the fillers in his normal voice too.

    The mentor of Idate [the guy who races] during the filler just before the Sasuke Retrieval Mission, also seen as a friend of Tsunade's during a filler episode after the Sannin battle is over and they're bringing Tsunade back to Konoha where those two debt guys are trying to steal Tsunade's briefcase.

    Sorry that wasn't exactly brief.

    Yeah. He voiced the main antagonist in Kingdom Hearts II and that one guy from the Tea Country filler arc, he doesn't use that deep voice he uses for the kyuubi and Grand Fisher.

    So then i guess we're all at an understanding of how great Peter is for the job? ^_^

    And in case nobody knows who the others are, Roger Craig Smith does Lord Gilford from Code Geass, and Sam Reigal does Viral from Gurren Lagann and Ichinose from Bleach.

    And Richard Steven Horvitz does Zim from Invader Zim and Alpha 5 from Power Rangers. I just thought that his voice as Zim would be a good choice for tobi (maybe not his evil voice, but oh well).

    And i figured that Konan would probably be done by somebody like Kari Wahlgren (Tayuya) or whoever does Balsa from Moribito. I suppose that Susan Dalian (Haku) could do her as well, but this is just MO.

    Hidan: it's going to be pretty hard so i don't know yet
    Kakuzu: kirk thornton can probably pull off both kisame and kakuzu
    Sasori: I know the big puppet one has a VA but for the real one i'd say the guy who voiced Kimmimaro
    Deidara: Quintin Flynn is pretty good.
    Pein: I have no problem with Dave Withenberg.
    Konan: she hasn't appeared in the anime yet so it's hard to tell but i guess i'd say the lady voiced Haku like some said earlier.
    and last but not least Tobi/Madara... that's a hard one, it's anyone's choice.

    My problem with dave Wittenburg is he sounds too much like Kakashi. I don't know much about Pein only up to volume 37 but I know he's the big bad He just sound like an evil kakashi.

    also the thing with him sounding like kakashi (not sure if i should say this, because it's a spoiler, but since the thread says there's a slight chance of them popping up) is that pain fights kakashi around book 45 so thats gonna sound stupid when that fight comes and they both have the same voice actor. they should probably get someone else to him.

    You should've put up spoilers tags if they're spoilers.
