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.
Me too...cannot unhear...

The Atlas is also goofy but it has that whole "Stay Puft Marshmallow Man" menacing smile thing going for it. The guy who drew that one up was obviously taken to the Nutcracker when he was a child... and he was screaming in terror the entire time.

Mine. Only slightly different depending on the character.
Yeah, I don't do the whole 'celebrity voices' thing. Sometimes I try, but usually I forget. >.>

Roy: Barak Obama
Father: Barak Obama, buth with some weezing
Grandfather: Barak Obama, imiting Kamina
Sister: Michelle Obama
Elan: Miliki (An old spanish clown)
Haley: Marilyn Monroe
Durkon: My uncle.
V: Arcee (Transformers 86 movie, the only female)
Blackwing: Optumis Prime (First Series)
Belkar: Heath Ledger's Joker
O'Chul: Chuck Norris
Lord Shojo: A Dalai-Lama-like voice
Lord Hinjo: Ruroni Kenshin
Xykon: An unearthly deep hiss. When he was alive, I imagined him with a teen voice. Even when he was old!
Redcloak: An anoying voice, that you cannot help to wish he was obliterated, and then resurrected just to be obliterated again!!
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.
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.
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.
