Richard Castillo in the season three episode "Yesterday's Enterprise".

McDonald's voice work includes the determined government agent Kent Mansley in the animated film The Iron Giant. He also voiced Jor-El in Superman: The Animated Series and subsequently an older version of Superman in Batman Beyond. He has recalled great affection for these roles, saying that he enjoyed them because he was (and continues to be) such a fan of Superman and because they were in such contrast to the less than sympathetic onscreen roles for which he is known. He subbed for Burt Reynolds as Boss Hogg in The Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning. In 2009, McDonald also lent his voice talents in the Thomas Nelson audio Bible production known as The Word of Promise. In this dramatized audio, McDonald played the role of Luke.

In 2021, McDonald joined the cast of Hacks on HBO Max as Marty, a Las Vegas casino owner. In May 2021, McDonald was cast in the upcoming Disney+ series Secret Invasion, set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The show is set to premiere in 2023.


Marvel's Secret Invasion becomes the WORST rated MCU television series of all time, June 16, 2023
Just one day after the star-studded Los Angeles premiere of Marvel's Secret Invasion, the reviews are in, and they have brought the Marvel Cinematic Universe to a new low. Secret Invasion has currently amassed a 69% rating on Rotten Tomatoes , compiled from 42 reviews of the first two of the show's six episodes. While the rating is technically 'Fresh' (films and TV shows need a percentage of positive reviews above 60% to be considered 'Fresh' and not 'Rotten'), it's still the lowest of any of Marvel's Disney Plus shows.
