    Phil LaMarr (ANIMATED)

    I vote Scatman. He's just got that musical edge that made Jazz such a groovy and likeable character. McCrary was somewhat underutilized I felt, and LaMarr sounded way too serious (he sounded like JUSTICE LEAGUE's John Stewart - because it was the voice actor for John Stewart) for such a character.

    Scatman! But...Phil does a great job too so far (if that's him in FoC...if it's John DiMaggio like I originally thought, then him as well!).

    But yes...Crothers all the way.

    Of only those three voice-actors? LaMarr, followed by Scatman and then McCracy. McCrary wasn't too memorable, in my opinion. My opinion would probably change if you were to include all of the Jazz voice-actors. You're missing about five VAs who have also voiced Jazz.

    Except for the fact that LaMarr-Jazz sounded virtually nothing like his John Stewart voice. :lol

    Phil Lamarr.

    I just like the way he sounds cool yet knows when to get serious. :)  I love that he's reprising the role in Fall of Cybertron. :thumb

    Scatman but the Animated Jazz guy was great too.
    Movie Jazz just shouted some profanity and then died, didn't make much of an impression on me.

    How is this even a question? Choosing anyone other than Scatman Crothers is like choosing someone other than the Beatles as your favorite to perform Beatles songs.

    I always thought that Wilt from FOSTER’S HOME was closer to the character of Jazz, and that it’d be the way he should act: a fun-loving but responsible dude who knows when to get hard. I’m not putting down LaMarr’s performance on Jazz, I just felt it needed less style and a bit more boogie, you know what I mean?

    Scatman was really cool as Jazz but I got to go with Phil LaMarr as Jazz man.

    If he is indeed voicing him FOC then he wins by a landslide.

    Scatman. Helps being a fan of him in general.

    It is quite a trip if you try watching any G1 Jazz footage right after watching Ralph Bakshi's film "Coonskin" where Scatman voiced half the characters there.
