    smile Who's voice do you hear the characters in?

    Like, if you could give the characters any voice actors you wanted, who do you think they sound like the most?

    My personal list so far is:

    Roy: J August Richards
    Father: Morgan Freeman
    Grandfather: Michael Clark Duncan
    Elan: Alan Tudyk
    Haley: Beth Riesgraf
    V: Justin Bieber
    Blackwing: Paul Blackthorne
    Belkar: Trey Parker

    Nale: Wil Wheaton
    Sabine: Gina Bellman
    Thog: not sure

    Xykon: Patrick Stewart
    Redcloak: Vincent Caso
    Tsukiko: Jewel Staite

    Miko: Amy Okuda
    Shojo: Ian McKellen

    Tarquin: David Boreanaz
    Malack: Roger L Jackson
    Empress: Tina Fey

    I don't normally hear characters in the voices of specific real-life people, but ever since I saw it suggested in a misguided "voice actor" thread, George Takei is the voice of Lord Shojo to me. I can't unhear it now.

    So this has already been discussed?

    I seem to remember that Mel Brooks was the "win" suggestion for Xykon. And that there was this silly argument over whether Neil Patrick Harris was too old to voice Elan.

    No. There's a difference between asking "Who do you hear a character as?" and "Who should voice that character?" The latter periodically crops up, but this is the first time I've seen the former.

    I personally prefer this thread, since the other one didn't really seem to know that much about how voice casting works.

    Agreed. Voice Acting is not the same as screen acting. Somebody can be an excellent screen actor and an utterly inept voice actor.

    Also, I nominate Kotono Mitsuishi for Lien.

    To answer the question in the thread's title, I actually have no idea. I hear most of the male characters(Roy, Redcloak, Tarquin,O Chul, Jirix, Hinjo, Tahn, Nale, Girard, Malack etc) in a similar voice, as if I had one personal narrator reading all the lines, only slightly changing his voicetone depending who ''he'' is voice acting. And I think the same is true for most female characters (Haley, Sabine, Miko, Lirian, Celia, etc), as if I had a second voice actor in my mind. But I don't know at all where these two voices come from.

    Only a few specific characters have a different voice, such as Durkon (A weird-sounding voice that I can't really describe, nothing like a real scottish accent, sounds more like a redneck medieval peasant), the Oracle (some kind of old man high-pitched voice), Thog (well, Thogish voice, I also somehow read forikroder's posts the same way incidently, same as Enor), Xykon (pirate-like voice), Belkar (kid voice, even though he'd harvest my kidneys for saying this).

    I actually envy those able of reading with each character having a different voice :(

    That's the answer for what voice I hear the characters in, as for what voice I'd LIKE to hear the characters in, I can't really tell since I don't know the names of many voice actors. I might think about it later.

    Saffron Henderson would make a really annoying Miko, but I think she deserves better.

    I'm also going to say Lisa Ortiz for Haley and Rachel Lillis for Celia.

    It's weird, but when I read the comic I don't really 'hear' the characters as anybody in particular.. with the exception of one. For some odd reason I always hear Malcolm McDowell when I read Xykon's dialogue.

    I hear Keith David (the voice of Goliath from Gargoyles, Spawn, Mary's stepfather in Something About Mary) for Roy. When he's live acting, his characters get this kind of high pitched sputtering when they're upset/annoyed by something, which I always think of for Roy's reaction to his team's antics.

    Roy's Dad is very Samuel L. Jackson. Voice, attitude, and all.

    I don't have a particular person's voice in mind for Thog, but he does have the same voice in my head as Skull from PvP Comic. Kind of sounds like the big good-guy gargoyle from Gargoyles. Either Brooklyn or Bronx.

    Xykon is a very Rowan Atkinson (Johnny English, Black Adder) sounding fellow in my head. The confident, cold hearted bastard Atkinson, not the suck-up R.A.

    I always hear Sabine's voice as really sultry. No particular actor who I can recall off the top of my head.

    No one else gets a real "voice", except that V sounds like a snot no matter what else.

    I have to confess, I've heard Redcloak as the character Zim from Invader Zim for years now. Watched a marathon, then read oots, and I could never unhear it.

    Uh, Wikipedia tells me his voice actor is Richard Horvitz.

    You just made me imagine Belkar using Sideshow Bob's voice.... That's almost as bad as having Durkon voiced by Willie.

    Anyhow, I imagine the voices more like this:

    Belkar as Cartman,
    Xykon as Grimm,
    V as Spock,
    Roy as Sisko,
    Durkon as Scottie,
    Redcloak as Mandark

    I'm doing a combination of screen actors and voice actors whose voices would fit well IMO:

    Roy: Steve Blum or Crispin Freeman
    Elan: Mark Hamil (Sorry but I can't hear him as anyone other than that)
    Haley: Tara Strong
    V: Karen Strassman (Can do a pretty good androgynous voice)
    Belkar: Dave Wittenberg (I always pictured his as sounding like Teddie from Persona 4)
    Durkon: Steve Blum (He has the range)

    Nale: Cam Clarke
    Sabine: Tara Platt
    Thog: Dave Wittenberg (he has the range)

    Miko: Jennifer Hale
    Shojo: Geroge Takei
