I'm having an issue here with the Spoon Isle Trio in Chapters 2 and 5. Andrew Chaikin's Monkey Island Wiki article claims that he voiced "Pirate Ted the Swordfighter", but watching the videos of both Chapters 2 and 5, and according to someone here at the forums, I'm convinced that the Wiki isn't telling the truth. The voices of the Spoon Isle Trio from Chapter 2 seem to have been rearranged in Chapter 5 somehow. In Chapter 2, the Swordfighter sounds a lot like Killick Hardtack, and I assumed him to be Pirate Bill, since according to the Chapter 2 end credits he is voiced by Brian Sommer, the same guy who voiced Hardtack. However, in Chapter 5, we see the same Pirate Bill the Swordfighter, but he is instead voiced by Chaikin. Same goes for the Treasure Hunter in Chapter 2, who sounds like a Trenchfoot sound-alike, and whom I assume to be Pirate Ted, since he is voiced by Chaikin (who was then Kid Beyond). In Chapter 5, however, the same Pirate Ted the Treasure Hunter is suddenly Irish-sounding and is instead voiced by Sommer (though both Sommer and his Treasure Hunter character are missing in the Chapter 5 end credits). As for the Thief of Chapter 2, he sounds like a very tough dude with a bit of a British accent, and I assume him to be Pirate Kevin, since he is voiced by Jared Emerson-Johnson (the same guy who voiced the Marquis De Singe). In Chapter 5, however, the same Thief now speaks like a redneck in a low-voiced Southern drawl, and I assume that he is the same Kevin the Thief, with the same voice by Emerson-Johnson. I have evidence that the voices of the Spoon Isle Trio in Chapter 2 are kind of rearranged somehow in Chapter 5, according to these videos.

Video 3: Chapter 5 - Same Spoon Isle Trio characters, different voice actors?
Since the Spoon Isle Trio's voices have changed, I don't know what to think, but the staff at Telltale Games should tell me the truth: Did the voice actors for the Spoon Isle Trio really get switched around? If so, why did the voice actors change the voices of the Spoon Isle Trio? If only the Telltale Games staff would tell me the truth. :confused:
