James Hadley Snyder, also credited as Dan Green or Jay Snyder, is an American voice actor, voice director, and script adapter who has done voice work for the English dub of the Sonic the Hedgehog series and the Sonic X anime series.


A while prior to working at 4Kids Entertainment, he worked on two adult animes.

Snyder's first work for the Sonic series was doing voice work for the English dub of the Sonic X anime. After that, he went on to do voice work for the Sonic games. However, in 2010, with the switch in voice actors, Travis Willingham and Keith Silverstein took over his main voice roles in the Sonic games.

On 25 November 2011, Snyder lost his wife, Michal, during childbirth to twins. The voice actor of Dr. Eggman, Mike Pollock, to help support Snyder, set up a website appealing to the fans of Snyder's work for donations to help him with his new children.

  • At a convention called Sonicon in November 2010, Mike Pollock had called Snyder 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.[citation needed]
