    Ever since Gannji said, "Oh boy!", I've heard his voice as a Bugs Bunny-ish one. Also, Xykon is Horrible Histories' Grim Reaper to me, but I don't really hear anyone else as anyone in particular.

    I always hear Xykon as George Carlin.

    The ideal V voice would be Lindsay Crouse.

    Actually I did picture Xykon's voice as like that when he was still human in Start of Darkness. It does fit him.

    Broadway. Brooklyn's the thin red one, and Bronx is the dog.

    Broadway's not really that dumb, but when he does sound dumb... yeah, that works.

    Now that I'm in Gargoyles mode I'm imagining Jonathan Frakes (aka TNG's Riker) as Tarquin, since he's definitely the most Xanatosian figure around.

    Though really I don't hear anyone in particular in my head. I wish I did....

    I love fantasy casting threads- but also hate them, because in most cases people tend to cast based on appearance. Which is its own kettle of fish. My own castings tend to be reasonably random...

    Roy: Will Ferrell
    Elan: David Duchovny (old fantasy casting joke)
    Haley: Holly Hunter
    Belkar: MC Chris
    V: Terence Stamp
    Durkon: Billy Connoly

    Xykon: Gotta second John Hurt on this. Can't you just hear him doing the "style can slide" speech?
    Redcloak: Morgan Freeman (needlessly obscure "Shawshank Redemption" joke)
    Tarquin: Saw Keith David mentioned somewhere... think he'd be perfect for the smooth evil warlord.

    Only a few have leapt out at me. Tarquin strikes me very much as Liam Neeson, in Ra's al Ghul mode.

    O-Chul is Ken Watanabe. Crystal is Sarah Silverman (though I can also picture Silverman playing Tsukiko). Redcloak is David Mitchell.

    For some reason I have a lot more trouble casting the regulars than recurring characters. V and Elan are particularly to crack, the former to get an androgynus voice, the latter because ideally the actor should be playing Nale too so has to be versatile.

    As I'm reading the archives, I'm finding that David Hyde-Pierce is the voice of Redcloak in my mind. (that would probably make Kelsey Grammer Right Eye)

    Actually, I'd rather make him the Dark One.

    Can't you just hear him saying "Don't mess this up. No pressure though"?

    (would it be more appropriate for the Monster in the Darkness or the Snarl to be Maris in this little game?)

    Hey guys, I'm totally new here, so bear with me. I have another forum I frequent and another would be too much, so I'll probably be pretty sparse in my posting. Anyway, voices!

    Roy: Jason Segal (not black, but he has that deep, manly, warrior voice, but also the perfect voice for screaming when he's frustrated. Plus, he and Neil Patrick Harris have awesome chemistry, which means...)
    Elan: Neil Patrick Harris (singing!)
    V: Hugo Weaving (seriously, just read one of his speeches aloud)
    Durkon: Gary Schwartz (voice of the Demoman in Team Fortress 2)
    Haley: Karen Gillan (aka: Amy Pond from Doctor Who)
    Belkar: Gilbert Godfried (try unhearing that)

    Nale: Neil Patrick Harris (twins, dammit! How else is Nale supposed to fool people into thinking he's his brother?)
    Sabine: Gina Torres
    Thog: Greg Berger (famous playing Grimlock on Transformers)

    Xyklon: Nathan Fillon
    Redcloak: David-Hyde Pierce, as Aasimar suggested. I won't unhear that, now.

    Not sure about the rest, like Miko and such, except for one exception:

    MitD: Prepare to have this stuck in your brain, folks because I sure can't....Patrick Warburton. I've been reading through the books recently and suddenly, MitD's lines just read like something Warburton would say, especially if he were doing The Tick, again.

    I've always heard Xykon's voice as about the same as the voice of Skeletor when he's on Robot Chicken. Maybe a bit more screamy.

    Edit: Okay, a lot more screamy. And airy.

    I'd not really thought much about it - they're all fairly generic in my head.

    Although Elan tends to come up Will Friedle in my head (He's very Ron Stoppable in his disappointments).

    Durkon sounds like me doing a bad Dwarf-Scotch accent.

    And every Kobold has a graty nasal voice, because I always used a graty nasal voice for Kobolds. Yes, including Yokyok. Yes, even when I play them in live games.

    I'm not allowed to play them in live games anymore.
