David Hussey / Joe Maggard[edit]

Actor David Hussey was the real actor that portrayed Ronald, he played him from 2000 to 2014. He's the one that portrayed Ronald all these years, not Joe. Joe actually lied about portraying him from 1995 to 2007, it's true. The McDonald's wiki itself even says that he lied about portraying him. David Hussey also played Ronald in The Wacky Adventures of Ronald McDonald not Joe as well. There faces both look very similar with the makeup on, but it was really David Hussey. Joe just stole all the credit about it and lied. Also, Jack Doepke actually portrayed Ronald from 1991 to 1999, not 1995. Were he also played Ronald in the first three episodes of The Wacky Adventures of Ronald McDonald and David played Ronald in the last three episodes of the series. So David Hussey is the real person that portrayed Ronald from 2000 to 2014, and then Brad Lennon took over in 2014 to present, not 2007. 2600:1000:B018:1E5A:D963:AB84:1DCC:5AF4 (talk) 18:49, 5 November 2016 (UTC)

Here is the list of actors that portrayed him. http://mcdonalds.wikia.com/wiki/Actors_who_have_played_Ronald_McDonald 2600:1000:B018:1E5A:D865:42F0:A2:D426 (talk) 18:54, 5 November 2016 (UTC)

Wikia isn't an reilable source and there will be consensus against it if a RFC was opened. KGirlTrucker81 huh? what I'm been doing 22:21, 23 November 2016 (UTC)
Nope, not a WP:RS ... richi (hello) 23:10, 23 November 2016 (UTC)
Yes it is an unreliable source. Addicted4517 (talk) 05:11, 24 November 2016 (UTC)

But you guy's are still wrong, David did "TOO" play the role of Ronald McDonald from 2000 to 2014. Joe lied about portraying Ronald from 1995 to 2007 he stole all the credit and lied about it. David was the real person that played Ronald from 2000 to 2014. and Jack played Ronald from 1991 to 1999, not 1995. User:BigWalt71 the admin from McDonald's wiki even confirmed it when he met Rich Seidelman, the former sketch artist and writer for McDonaldland commercials and he himself even confirmed that it wasn't Joe. BigWalt also said you will find the answer here https://www.facebook.com/FilmingInMcDonaldland and it well confirm the real answers. 174.192.17.245 (talk) 23:34, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

Unless you can offer a WP:RS to support it, any edits to the articles that claim Hussey played the character are ipso facto vandalism ... richi (hello) 23:38, 23 November 2016 (UTC)
Perhaps Wikia isn't a reliable source, but what source is there that Joe Maggard ever portrayed Ronald McDonald other than Maggard himself? Neb-Maat-Re (talk) 00:43, 23 July 2017 (UTC)

can maggard please be removed, there is NO source stating he portrayed ronald. NOT ONE. Maggard makes the claim but has no proof while there is VIDEO proof that he DID NOT during the dates he gives as other actors are obvious and Maggard is NEVER seen nor heard portraying the character, ever. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 104.255.7.111 (talk) 17:09, 23 July 2017 (UTC)

Just to clear things up with all this Maggard information, here's an article from 2003. It states from McDonald's themselves that Joe isn't Ronald: http://www.baltimoresun.com/bal-ronald060203-story.html. 2600:1000:B073:AF01:4C32:D4DE:6A94:BD3C (talk) 20:23, 17 August 2018 (UTC)

Geoffrey Giuliano[edit]

Why is there no mention of actor Geoffrey Giuliano who later became an animal right's activist? [1]
