I think he might be telling the truth but will eventually get the call. They must be working with the "unexperienced" people first, then they'll move with whoever dominates their role already such as McCartney or Quinton. Haley is an exception since he has A LOT of recording to make.
But then why have Bill Farmer, Tony Anselmo, Quinton Flynn, Alyson Stoner (we can assume), Bret Iwan, David Gallagher, James Woods, Willa Holland, Drake Bell, Shanelle Gray, Tate Donovan, Richard Epcar, Benjamin Diskin, James Patrick Stuart, Vincent Corazza, Robin Atkin Downes, & Corey Burton also recorded dialogue? The ADR of this game is being recorded around a few factors we can see; cutscene & gameplay availability & actor availability. Obviously, they're getting the actors who only need to record for one world out of the way first, but they're also getting most of the returning veterans out of the way as well. Seriously, have you never actually watched, or at least paid attention to, the English trailers from E3? There were still some actors that need to record their dialogue, like the Tangled actors, John C. Reilly, & probably a few more actors, but I imagine some of those are a result of actor availability, since those characters are mute in the English versions of those trailers.
Seriously, I just released a thread that was literally me going through the English trailers & seeing who was voiced, then speculating on which actors they'll get back for other characters & also remembering who they got back for the last few main games; KH1, 2, & BBS. Plus knowing who's either been announced for the game, or who have revealed they're part of the game.
What I think we can gather from McCartney not recording anything yet is either he's lying due to an NDA, or that Ventus' part is in the last 3rd of the game, which we know they still haven't completely finished yet. Once they do, I'm sure he'll be brought in to dub the cutscenes with him in it.
