but yeah im sorry but the voice acting means nothing because thats just that can be resolved as saving the series money by having one actor voice tobi rather then 2 since the masked man tobi who fought minato doesnt get major screen time
as for the rinnegan we cant be sure that tobi actually gave it to him i mean yeah tobi said he did but why would anyone belive him, if tobi is telling the truth then that mean he gave nagato the rinnegan before he born or as a child before his parents were killed and until that is proven who would belive tobi, as we saw nagato awaken the rinnegan himself to protect himself and kill the ninjas or well it happened that way but he didnt have control of it
Tobi as claims that nagato is a descendent of the uzamaki clan so theoratically naruto could also awaken the rinnegan by some unknown means i mean im kinda predicting sasuke gives naruto is eye because he dies somehow and with sasukes eyes he could unlock the rinnegan and be the new sage of six paths, but that one is just my longshot idea
I don't believe an anime from the caliber of Naruto would use the same voice actor for such reasons.
As for Nagato, was from the Uzumaki clan, so he could have never had the Rinnegan awakened without external intervention. Rinnegan is only available naturally to those with the combined power of Uchiha and Senju, the two off-spring bloodlines of The Sage of Six Paths himself.
Tobi knows way too many things that only Madara himself could possibly know. Remember also when they showed how he recruited Kisame, it looked like the real Madara there, with extremely long hair, while later on Kisame recognized him in Tobi, so he must have known what was going on and the reasons for Tobi to remain hidden for so long. Plus when the 4th hit him with Rasengan, his hand fell down like a Zetsu substance.
