If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Roscoe Lee Browne - Everyone knows his voice once they hear it he was doing the AT&T commercials for awhile and did plenty of narration work, he even lent his voice to the trailer for Being John Malkovich. Roscoe was more of a stage performer but he did TV shows like a Different World and Bill Cosby in addition to roles in movies such as Hitchcock’s Topaz, The Cowboys with John Wayne, and other movies but bump them I’m adding him because his best performance was for playing a white guy. He was the voice of Kingpin/Wilson Fisk
on Fox's animated cartoon series Spiderman. As a little kid I knew it was his voice and I thought it was so cool knowing that this guy could fit into anyone’s skin even for someone the Kingpins' size. Unfortunately, Mr. Browne’s last performance was as the narrator in Epic Movie, which I’m sure, added a touch of class to that piece of shit.
Mark Hamill- Mark Hamill will probably always be remembered most for being Mr. Skywalker in the original Star Wars trilogy that didn't suck. However, for me his best performance came when he provided the voice of Mr. J aka The Joker in Batman the Animated Series. Mark Hamill has done various movies and voice acting work, but his performance as the joker was amazing especially in the animated movie Batman Mask of the Phantasm, in this movie he was able to display the Jokers twisted humor and menace in a way no other actor could at the time, not even Mr. Nicholson. Hamill has done other voice work but im too lazy to type it so check out his resume. I hear Metalocalypse, which Hamill is in, but sadly enough I have not seen it yet, but I’ll be doing some
Dom Deluise - When people hear the name Dom Deluise the first name that comes into mind is Fat ASS, naw im joking it’s the animation director Don Bluth. Dom Deluise always did voice work for Don Bluth's post Disney films during the 80's and 90's which included classics such as: The Secret of NIMH, An American Tail, The Land before Time, and All Dogs go to Heaven. Dom brought a dose of comic relief to each character he played usually playing the comedic sidekick, which helped lighten up the tension in Don Bluth's depressing and sometimes frightening flicks. My two favorite characters he played from Bluths films where as Jeremy the Crow in The Secret of NIMH and
Tiger the cat from the two American Tail movies.
Orson Welles - Citizen MUTHAFUCKING Kane everyone knows this rotund actor for the movie classics:Citizen Kane, A Touch of Evil, The Third Man, and The Peas Commercial just joking about the latter but tv show the critic did do a hilarious spoof of it. Orson Welles was famous for all those other movies and his groundbreaking visual filmmaking style yet his voice was just as famous. In 1938 he scared america stupid in thinking aliens were really on the verge of attacking with his radio presentation of War of the Worlds and he even did the voice of Lamont Cranston on the radio program The Shadow
(eat a dick Alec Baldwin). Even though Orson Welles succeeded with all those other movies listed earlier he was viewed as a has-been and towards the end of his career did a lot of voice over and narration work for Cartoons (Chuck Jones' Riki Tiki Tavi) and documentaries (The Man Who Saw Tomorrow). However, for me his greatest performance in a film happened to be ironically his last one and that was as the voice of Unicron the planet-eating planet in Transformers. You'll understand why once you look below
Lorenzo Music - A man no one ever saw on screen yet everyone heard, had a voice that entertained a lot of us. Who doesn't remember Lorenzo from the crash test dummies commercials or when he first appeared on the Mary Tyler Moore spin off show Rhonda as the voice of the title character's doorman Carlton. In the 80's he lent his voice to the Ghostbusters animated spin off show The Real Ghostbusters replacing Bill Murray's character Peter Venkmen ironically enough Bill Murray would do the same thing for Music when playing the live action version of the original fat cat Garfield from Garfield and Friends. Lorenzo Music is most famous for playing Garfield the laziest cat ever but he made Garfield have layers and depth to his laziness. I still miss hearing him voice that big ol' cat.
James Earl Jones - if there is a GOD and you heard him speak, he would have to sound like Mufasa from the Lion King. Let’s be honest with ourselves James Earl Jones doing voice over’s is almost cliché yet he is so brilliant at it that we let him keep doing it over and over again...smooth bastard. Ironically enough James Earl Jones use to have a stutter and once he studied acting he managed to stop stuttering. James has been in so many movies but of course, everyone knows him for creating the voice of Darth Vader, Mufasa, and for playing in Coming to America, Conan the Barbarian, Roots the Next Generation, etc... but my opinion is what matters here and he will always be remember by me for playing the villainous Ommadon in Flight of Dragons. His "determination" speech during the council meeting in Flight of Dragons still sends shivers up my spine when I hear it, the idea that mankind could be wiped out by James Earl Jones is kinda scary to me.
Cree Summer – What can I say about the veteran she is: amazing, beautiful, and tremendously talented. Summer is one of the most recognized voice actresses since she has been voicing some of the most iconic characters in the cartoon universe including the annoying Elmyra Duff from Tiny Toons
and the token black Rugrat Susie Carmichael
she even did some of The Care Bear movies and released a music CD that wasn't good but I applaud her efforts. I first fell in love with her voice when I heard her on Inspector Gadget as Penny, she saved Gadgets ass sooo many times, yet she never got the credit she deserved! One night I was watching a Different World and I realized the fine ass Freddie Brooks
did all of those voices, I was shocked because I always thought Penny’s voice was done by someone white…side note I’m jealous Dwayne Wayne was dating her off camera for years. Since Cree Summer has an epic amount of voice work I’ll just let you scan her resume: Here is a list of the characters she has done.
Keith David - OH MY GOD this is the dude, the Samuel L. Jackson of voice acting name any great cartoon and he had to have been in it. This is my all time favorite actor because he can do anything in a film, TV show, video game or TV commercial. He did the voice of: Okoto the blind boar in the re-dub of Hayo Miyuzaki's Princess Mononoke, The Arbiter from the Halo series, narration for the NAVY promos, and in live action films he has played BIG TIM in Requiem for a Dream, Childs in the Thing and here is his IMDB profile because i'll be here all day naming all the amazing roles and narrations he has done I will however give the two highlights of his career. Spawn from the HBO cartoon series and Goliath from Disney's Gargoyles. Spawn is one if not my favorite comic book hero so having Keith David playing the tortured soul of Al Simmons( the man who is suppose to lead Hell's Army) was a perfect fit, the fact he didn't get any awards for his voice work on this show is beyond me. The show was canceled but there is a new reboot staring Keith on the way!! Keith's 2nd memorable character is Goliath the leader of the nocturnal crew of Gargoyles. Just like Al Simmons, Goliath has to fight for the good of humankind and protect the ones he loves, even though he constantly finds new things that make him doubt and question the worthiness of his cause!
