    Norm Macdonald voices the entire IFCC, at least the Directors.

    That's all I got right now, maybe I'll do a full list later.

    Also, I don't know why but I see Belkar sounding a little like an evil Fry from Futurama...

    I keep hearing Durkon with Mr. Krabs' voice for some reason.

    Funny, normal Fry is how I hear Elan...

    Odd to see all the English actors for Xykon. Given his attitude, I hear him as a more of an American Jock-type- like a high-school bully with some spooky reverb going on.

    MiTD? Eddie Izzard.

    There's a moment in Return of the Jedi where where Luke, prisoner on the Emperor's ship, glances briefly at the lightsaber they took away from him, and the Emperor notices. "You want this?" he says, in a mocking and amused voice that lets you know that, although his sense of humor is twisted and evil, he still has one. That is how I hear Xykon.

    It should probably be noted that Xykon hears himself as James Earl Jones, or at least did in Start of Darkness. But I don't hear him that way. The only character I personally ever heard with anything like that kind of deep, resonant voice was Kubota.

    Elan's goofy amiability always suggested a touch of Jim Henson in his voice to me, but just a touch. And whoever's doing the voice acting for Elan would have to drop that completely when he does Nale.

    Thog sounds a lot like Strong Mad to me.

    Actually, Xykon compares himself to James Earl Jones after he becomes a lich and his voice gets the reverb/black speech bubble effect. It's obviously more about that then anything else.

    In fact, that's the only time I can think of where we've been given a clue as to exactly what a particular colored speech bubble would "really" sound like. People's thoughts on what others would sound like could be a thread in its own right (some of them are pretty obvious, of course).

    And yeah, I remember the voice of almost any character I hear, but rarely the name to go with it, so I never actually know the voices I attach to the characters. It really, really annoys me.

    Some of the suggestions for Xykon here are great. Mel Brooks as a happily evil superviallin who people mistake for being friendlier than he is? I could see that. George Carlin as a guy who's seen it all, hates it all, and finds watching it all crash and burn absolutely hilarious? Hell, that was pretty much half his act. And he was GREAT at it.

    But nonetheless, it doesn't matter to my inner voice actor. Because Xykon absolutely always ends up trying to sound like Jack Nicholson. Even way back when it as explained in-canon that he sounds like Darth Vader, I couldn't make it stick. Xykon's writing just screams Jack Nicholson.

    Julio Scoundrel is either John Astin or Bruce Campbell, depending on my mood.

    Can identical twins have different voice actors? I think they can. Wil Wheaton as Nale, impersonating Elan by doing an impersonation of Neil Patrick Harris doing Elan, may not nail any world records for most coherant sentence about Nale nail Not-Nale with Nale Neil Not-Nale, but it does actually match up pretty well with how I "read" the voices.

    Tarquin, no matter what line it is I'm reading, is Shatner. And probably vice versa. Who knows how many empires are secretly controlled by Shatner? Regular great actors are bards. Great over-actors are Overbards. They gain superhuman Charisma through consumption of scenery. Back in the 80s, there was another great Overbard who made the mistake of giving Shatner a run for his money. R.I.P., Mr. Montalban...

    Kobuta and Therkla are Daniel Dae Kim and Eliza Dushku.

    I think all of my other opinions fall more into the category of actual casting choices, as in "if you had to go out and choose someone, who would come closest?". The ones I've listed in this thread just cover voices that I actually automatically "hear."

    She was fine, and her babies got to find out that their mom was badass. I was traumatised.

    I forgot to mention that that's exactly how I imagine Roy to sound!
