Michael Daingerfield Hall (born October 29, 1970) is a Canadian actor, voice actor, acting coach and founder of On The Mic Training, a voice acting school in Vancouver, British Columbia.

He is best known for his voice roles of Ace Ventura in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Braeburn in My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, Sesshomaru in Inuyasha: The Final Act and Gintoki Sakata in the Ocean dub of Gintama, as well as his portrayal of Gordon Godfrey on the CW's Smallville.

Early life and education[edit]

Daingerfield grew up in Toronto, Ontario. He attended Murray State University in Kentucky on a tennis scholarship. He graduated with a degree in business and administration.[1][2]


Michael Daingerfield's very first voice acting job was playing Ace Ventura on the Nickelodeon/CBS cartoon series of the same name. According to Dan Hennessey the Voice Director for Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Daingerfield did a few of Jim Carrey's ADR lines in the second Ace Venutra movie (Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls), when Mr. Carrey was unavailable to do them himself.[3]

In 2006, Daingerfield wrote, produced and starred in, "Daingerfield", a short feature loosely based on his life.[4]

In 2007, Daingerfield founded On the Mic Training, a Vancouver based, voice acting school where he and many other Vancouver voice actors train students in voice-over.[5]

In 2017, he was cast as the lead role of Gintoki Sakata in the Ocean dub of Gintama.
